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.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
