I picked up a Millennium Falcon at a garage sale this summer and completely forgot about it. I stumbled across it last week and was surprised it was a good match for X-Wing.

So I made a flight stand and gave it a wash with GW Inks and it looks pretty decent.

If you want your own it's a Taco Bell toy.

Looks great, I will have to make sure my son doesn't see it as he is desperate for me to buy X-Wing.

would THIS 'snap tight' kit work as well for 'X-wing'????

I know it may not be as 'cheap'….but is it close enough in size???? (and this site appears to be cheapest place to get it, compared to ebay + shipping, etc)…

and then giving it a black 'wash'….???

is it close enough for X-wing?

Wow I did not even know about Taco Bell Star Wars toys. It look very nice. A little small for my taste but definatly usable for the game.

Yeah someone posted about the Revelle kit being pretty close in size to the one coming out for this.

Thanks Xin I just bought me one for 8.50 including shipping which was cheaper than the revelle kit.

Yes I have the Revelle kit it is about 3 inches by 4 inches and the one coming out is 5 inches by about 4 1/2 inches.

Funny…
I just found two of those over the weekend in my garage and thought they would be great for X-Wing…

Auction seems reasonable, until you tack on the shipping charge too.

Might as well just buy the one from FFG.

Well 2 have been bought since I posted. One is $10 USD with $3.51 USD shipping. The MSRP on the official one is $29.99 USD. Just helping with alternatives that are cheaper and available now.

Cheers, Xin

Here's the cheapest Revelle Falcon I've found…

ehobbies.com/rmx858341.html

I ordered one there myself…(shipping costs almost as much as model)….

but then I've also 'pre-ordered' the Fantasy Flight one due out in Jan 2013….

(and yes, the Revelle one should look good with black 'wash')

The Revelle Snap-Tite kit is really nice and just about the right scale too. It's plenty good enough to hold us over until February.

$9.99 USD is a good price I got mine for I think $11.99 USD.

What are you lads using for the Falcons stats etc til Feb?
Thanks,clif

Can use the real stats if they like – they're easy to find online.

All the Wave 2 ships have been 'spoiled', and it's done nothing to dampen my enthusiasm.

It looks decent although small. But will you be able to resist when the proper release hits the shelves? :)
