Code 3 Collectibles to Offer Fans Exclusive 3D Crystal of Millennium Falcon for Orders Placed at Comic-con
San Diego, CA, July 17, 2003 – Code 3 Collectibles takes Star Wars fans on an unprecedented journey inside the legendary Millennium Falcon starship, as the company introduces the first in a series of amazingly detailed replicas of the most memorable vehicles and ships from the Star Wars saga. Now available for order, this one-of-a-kind model will be on display for the first time at Comic-con 2003 and is made possible by the extraordinary effort of over 500 people involved in the production process, recreating the Falcon’s layout in painstaking detail – from its characteristic saucer-shaped hull and cargo-gripping mandibles, to the intricate features of its interior compartments and weaponry.
Fans can see and place orders for this extraordinary Millennium Falcon model at the Code 3 Collectibles Booth #4238. Code 3 Collectibles will also offer a special 3D crystal of the Millennium Falcon in a satin-lined case ($50 retail value) as a complimentary gift to all fans who place orders at the show. Those who sign up on the Code 3 e-mail list will also receive one of three complimentary Star Wars bumper stickers.
One of the Rebel Alliance’s fastest and most powerful vessels, the Falcon played an integral role in many of the Alliance’s greatest victories over the Empire. Piloted by Han Solo and his first mate Chewbacca, the freighter packs many powerful secrets beneath its exterior. With over 400 hand-crafted pieces, the Code 3 Collectibles model gives fans their first real peek inside the Falcon, with eight movable parts that reveal extensive circuitry and cockpit detail, removable landing gear, an opening boarding ramp, a rotating main sensor rectenna, and more.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled with Code 3 Collectibles’ first release in the Star Wars collection,” said Howard Roffman, President of Lucas Licensing. “The Millennium Falcon is one of the saga’s best known icons, and Code 3 Collectibles has brought it to life with an unparalleled degree of authenticity.”
“The meticulous attention given to every detail of the Millennium Falcon model will be immediately evident to Star Wars fans,” said Arnie Rubin, President of Code 3 Collectibles. “Our designers have immortalized a unique piece of Star Wars history with their amazing recreation.”
