|Kenner Spec Sheet - Millenium Falcon (early mock-up)|
|This white styrene mock-up has very few of the exterrior details present on the final version of the toy. Every feature appears to be in order. Notice that the chess table is orange though they don't even mention this as one of the important additions to the interior. There's really not much you can say about this because it was definitely a 1:1 scale mock-up created for early photography and conceptual purposes. Still, it's really neat to see something like this and to realize what it was created for and what it helped spawn. The Millenuim Falcon has been a backbone of Star Wars toys since 1977. In fact this toy was so good that Kenner used the same molds to re-create it back in 1995.
This Kenner product sheet is part of a 3-ring notebook containing early photography and descriptions of roughly 30 Star Wars toys. Each sheet has the same format with typed information about the product and a pasted-on glossy photo. Most photos are representations of the toys but they often differed from their released counterparts which makes it quite unique to look at. These were generally mock-ups of sorts created because the toys weren't ready in time for photography and early marketing. This book came from an ex-Kenner model maker who was dilligently tracked down by a collector. Many thanks go out to that collector for helping turn up a piece of history like this.
