Bandai Hobby has hit the nail on the head! Where all Millennium Falcon kits released in the past have been based on the 32-inch screen used miniature, Bandai Hobby's 1/72 scale Perfect Grade Millennium Falcon plastic model kit is based on the 5-foot model used for detail shots in the original Star Wars film. In doing so, they are able to offer a product that is so detailed, it is a perfect scaled replica!
Their passion to create the perfect falcon has been nothing short than a painstaking labor of love. Bandai Hobby was able to identify every single piece used to kitbash the screen used ship, many of which, as it turned out, were their own kits!
Bandai Hobby hosts a special feature written by Studio Model Specialist Hiroshi Sumi on their website that illustrates the Japanese company's efforts to make this must-have collectible. Follow the link above to check it out. If you don't have time to read it right now, make sure to bookmark it. You won't be disappointed!
Bandai Hobby's 1/72 scale Perfect Grade Millennium Falcon plastic model kit began hitting shelves in North America in November, 2017.
