Millennium Falcon is my favourite spaceship in the Star Wars movies,
I was so excitied that Hasbro's was making a BMF.
So, after months and months of wait, watching it's preview on youtube, it was finally launched in July 2008.

Overall, I think this spaceship is fantastic and well designed.
A lot of details and I especially like the lightings very much.
Interiors were great too!
I also have a Micro Machine Millenium Falcon (not posted yet) and a Galactic Heroes Millenium Falcon.
Please click on the coloured link if you like to see the other Millenium Falcon.

Two Figures included were : Han Solo and Chewbacca
Personally, I think it would be great if R2D2 and C3PO were added to this set too.

BMF in packaged eggcrate.

As for the below photo, I don't know what's wrong.
It simply cannot be in landscape form when I downloaded it.
Viewing the photo from my computer was ok!
Anyway this is the top eggcrate of the BMF.
Accessories like the landing gears, sensor dish, cannon missiles were all in the plastic packaged.

Mini Fighter
It is able to fit inside the BMF.

An overview of Big Millennium Falcon
I didn't open this plastic bag of accessories as I do not have the place to display this spaceship.
All will go back into the box after photographing.
You probably notice the missing sensor dish and missile at the top of the spaceship.

This is where the power of the Millennium Falcon is located.
Only takes 3 "AA" batteries to power up this big spaceship!
Screwdriver is needed for access.

Outer panel of the Millennium Falcon can be remove to access the interior.

The cockpit of Millennium Falcon.
Able to fit 4 action figures.

A little about the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars movies :

Millennium Falcon design was said to be based on George Lucas favourite food - hamburger, with the outrigger cockpit being an olive off to the side!

Han Solo won the Millennium falcon from Lando Calrissian.

Star Wars Movie quotes on Millennium Falcon :
Luke Skywalker : "What a piece of Junk!"

Han Solo : "she may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid"
(This phase is also printed on this packaged of the BMF box)

Final checking of the vehicle is done!
