More Falcon Goodness!
Man if this isn't real, I don't know what I'll do, I guess I would have to make one myself!
Galactic Hunter updated with what is supposed to be the back of the box image for this new Millennium Falcon and all I can say is wow! Just looking at all the stuff on this thing really takes me back to my original Falcon (which I still have parts of kicking around).
I remember going to the store to pick it up. My mother drove me to a Best store, remember those. It was a catalog type store that also had a brick and mortar. That was the only reason we were going, because they had gotten a shipment of Falcons in, that was it, a pure Star Wars trip. This was a big deal because one, my mother didn't like driving on the highways and two it seemed like the trip took all day. I can now make this trip in less than 30 minutes, but Best is long gone. The ride home seemed even longer, couldn't wait to crack that "piece of junk" out of the package and take it for it's inaugural flight!
To this day whenever I find myself taking the same route we took that day I am flooded with memories of that day.
Well back to this new bird! I'm really hoping this doesn't turn out as an elaborate hoax, not that this will be the thing that gets me back into Star Wars collecting, I'm thinking this will be the item I will go out with a bang on. I am really digging all the features, and I'm surprised to say I even dig the little fighter, though it should be an escape pod, for a minute there I thought it would be the cargo handler of concepts of the past.
