Follow this link to checkout a promotional Millennium Falcon coming out this summer in Germany to promote the release of "Hippos Star Wars". This cardboard Falcon looks to be a display stand of sorts for an upcoming series of "hippo" (yes, as in "hippopotamus") PVC Star Wars figures.

Obi-Wan Hippobi? Hippoda? This is, without a doubt, one of the stranger SW tie-ins I've seen. Additional Hippo Star Wars info can be seen right here.

A thanks to "Le Bureau" for all the Falcon great pictures.

I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
