This is beyond cool. The Force is strong with this Falcon. The box is in gently used condition, very stable, secure original tape, great color nd gloss. You can clearly judge for yourself. The figures are in excellent shape, note particularly the paint on the droids. These Micro Collection Falcons are fairly rare to find with all guns, radar dish, ramp, cockpit glass, all features work, color is outstanding, let alone with ALL original paperwork. This has the instructions. This has the sheet explaining how to open the top of the ship without breaking it. This has the collection catalog. This has the one-page Revenge of the Jedi promo insert. This has it all, unbelievable set. The Falcon is missing some stickers ("flyin through space ain't like dustin crops, boy"), tho we do have one engine exhaust and one I think inside panel, that came loose and are included. If you have more exotic tastes, we also have a rare Australian Toltoys example of the Micro Collection Falcon in the shop, although it does not have the box and paperwork. But she's worth a once over .ate.

And now for something completely different, the backstory on this one-season only release. The good folks at Star Wars Collector Archives (the have this to say:

"The Micro Collection Millennium Falcon was awesome; definitely my favorite toy in the line. Unlike Kenner's Millennium Falcon action figure toy, which was so out of scale that the figures couldn't even stand up inside of it, the Micro version of the vehicle was acceptably sized in relation to the tiny metal figures that came with it. Other notable features included a pop-up access hatch to the outside of the hull, a gunner's chair, and rotating cannons on the ship's top and bottom. (It was the only vintage Falcon toy to feature this movie-accurate detail.)

"The six figures the toy came with indicate it was meant primarily to re-create scenes from The Empire Strikes Back. Chewie takes a pose from Echo Base on Hoth, when the Wookie is seen repairing the Falcon; Han, crouching with his blaster ready, is meant to represent the character as he's fending off laser blasts while trying to escape from Hoth; the poses of Lando and Luke derive from the end of the film, when a one-handed Luke is rescued from the bottom of Cloud City; and Threepio and Artoo...well, they're just Threepio and Artoo. It's really a shame that a Leia figure wasn't included in the set, as she spent a good portion of the film aboard the vehicle.

"Meant for a limited release via Sears during the 1982 Christmas season, followed by a wide release in '83, the Falcon fell victim to the pre-mature cancellation of the Micro line and was never issued in large numbers. In the end, collectors could only get it by going through Sears, and Sears didn't carry it for too long."

Here's the vintage advertising form the 1982 Sears Wishbook (and oh man does that take me back -- you can probably find half our shop in it, no joke):

"Here's where all the action began for HAN SOLO and CHEWBACCA. Now the Rebel Alliance depends on them! The top of the MILLENNIUM FALCON comes off and reveals extra play areas and storage compartments. In fact, this vehicle includes nearly all your favorite features scaled to size. With die cast figures included, it adds another great dimension to STAR WARS fun. Ages 4 and up. Assembly required"

And here's the Star Wars Collector's Archive discussion on the background for the one-year only limited run of Micro Collection sets after the release of Empire, and hence, why they are so rare ... and the rarest of the production runs was this Falcon:

"Kenner's Micro Collection line of toys was both revolutionary and short-lived. Whereas today, nearly every major toy line has a micro-scale division, in 1982, when the Micro Collection was introduced, it received a rather tepid response at retail, and was cancelled after only one year. The Micro Collection playsets were based on key action sequences from Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. Each set came with a varying number of posed metal figures, as well as a sort of plastic stage, which served as a miniature 'environment' in which kids could play out their favorite Star Wars moments.

"The figures' lack of posability is often cited as a key factor in the demise of the line; but this is a somewhat simplistic explanation for why the Micro Collection never really took off. By 1982, the ESB line was fast drawing to a close; more importantly, kids' interests were increasingly being drawn away from Star Wars towards competing action figure brands, such as Masters of the Universe and the 33/4" incarnation of G.I. Joe. It was simply a poor time to introduce such an extensive and unfamiliar product line. Had it been launched more conservatively, and amidst the rush of hype surrounding the 1983 release of Return of the Jedi, the Micro Collection might have fared much better. But as it turned out, the line was cancelled, and Star Wars collectors had to wait until 1994, the year that Galoob introduced their popular line of Star Wars Micro Machines, before they could again buy micro-scale toy products.

"In all, 70 die-cast metal figures were released, each coming as part of either a retail playset or the one mail-away premium attached to the line, the so-called 'Build Your Armies' figure set."

May the Force be with you. And may you be touched by his noodly appendage.
