The Millennium Falcon is one of the most iconic ships in the Star Wars universe and as such, is probably one of the most well known.  The hunk of junk that Princess Leia was so surprised to see Han Solo and Chewbacca providing her safe passage in, actually made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs making her one of the fastest ships in the galaxy.

Originally the Millennium Falcon was known as YT01300 492727ZED, Han and Chewie made a few modifications to their prized possession, a freighter that has a rich and varied history.  She has gone by many names in the past including Stellar Envoy and Bat-Falcon, until Han Solo won the ship in a game of Sabacc from Lando Calrissian.

The Millennium Falcon has fought in many pivotal battles including firing the shot that destroyed the Death Star.

 

Take good care of her, Solo. That ship saved my life quite a few times over the years.

We are actually really impressed by the signature shape of the Falcon and the high details that almost resembles a blueprint.  Pop your bottle caps off in style with the ship that took down the Death Star, (with a little help of course)

Flandon’s Teeth, what a history that ship has!

Now you can take a miniature version of the Millennium Falcon with you, wherever you may roam, with these snazzy and all together rather fantastic key rings.  Choose from either a glow in the dark rubber keyring or an exquisitely detailed metal one.

The glow in the dark Millennium Falcon is made from high quality materials in black and features the signature detail of the ship in the illuminating glow in the dark green.  On the reverse side there is even a place to joy down your name, you know just in case someone else tries to claim ownership of the freighter.

Look, I want you to take her. I mean it, take her! You need all the help you can get; she’s the fastest ship in the fleet!

This fantastic kit is presented in the best way, a 3D representation of Han Solo’s ship.  The top opens up to reveal a window that allows you to peak inside at the contents, 24 cupcake cases and 24 cupcake toppers.  The cases are divided into two sets, the Dark Side, a deep blue and an image of Darth Vader on the bottom, and the the Light Side featuring Yoda on a green background.

The toppers again feature both the forces of good and evil, 6 of each of the following – R2-D2, C3PO, Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper.

A perfect way to make any day a little more intergalactic, you don’t have to wait until you are in a galaxy far, far away to enjoy a tasty sweet Star Wars themed treat.
