With the massive amount of products released in 2005’s Revenge Of The Sith line, most collectors missed out on a Toys R Us exclusive that came and went without any fanfare. Initially planned for the Revenge Of The Sith line, Hasbro’s plans for the Millennium Falcon changed in 2004 when Lucasfilm announced that the Original Trilogy was getting released on DVD. The original plans for the Revenge Of The Sith Millennium Falcon were put on hold, and Hasbro produced packaging that fit into The Original Trilogy Collection line and released the Millennium Falcon that way. With a wealth of new features and an overall upgraded design, the new Millennium Falcon sold exceptionally well. Then, when Hasbro prepared the Revenge Of The Sith line, there was a slot to release the Millennium Falcon once again, in its intended packaging, for the Revenge Of The Sith line. Toys R Us picked it up and in the summer of 2005 began arriving on store shelves with an MSRP ranging from $54.99 to $59.99. Hasbro enhanced this version of the Millennium Falcon with new (and stunning) electronic lights and (screen-accurate) sounds. But that’s not all that’s new here. You’re going to find that some of the smallest updates here make the vehicle a tremendous addition to your Star Wars collection. And you’ll quickly realize how both the 2005 ROTS Millennium Falcon and 2004 OTC Millennium Falcon make 1995’s POTF2 Millennium Falcon (Electronic) obsolete. All that differs between the two releases is the outside box. The vehicle and the inserts are identical. Both versions come with The Original Trilogy Collection paperwork.

Let’s run through the features once more. There are many features new updates for this version. Hasbro added a new port in the front center of the Millennium Falcon for a firing missile projectile. It comes with a bright translucent red plastic projectile, and the firing button is on the top front of the vehicle. The vehicle received a completely all-new paint job. They chose an excellent base color for the plastic. And they focused on adding dirt where it makes the most sense, like the sides and top front of the Millennium Falcon. The new paint job necessitates fewer decals, and you’ll find a drastically reduced decal sheet inside of the box. Hasbro used about half of the “stickers” this time around. They’re newly colored, and some are altogether new. Hasbro also retooled the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit. They enlarged the interior to allow for more significant figures like Chewbacca, but until they tool a new Millennium Falcon from scratch, don’t expect two action figures to fit inside comfortably. There are no chairs or buckets seats, and they sit in a space” that is not nearly as roomy as it needs to be here. However, it’s worth noting that the latest Hasbro figures do fit better inside. We should also note that the new control panel fits inside of cockpit in two different ways. Typically, it sits in the upper half of the canopy. But you can also remove it and place it on the bottom half of the cabin over the figure’s legs (loosely) if you’re interested in creating a display with this configuration instead. Hasbro generously updated the connection points to many areas that work together to create a streamlined aesthetic for the Millennium Falcon. There are no more ill-fitted connection points.

For example, the hinge on the ramp door’s connections are retooled, and it now closes tightly without looking ajar. It’s a tight fit now. More importantly, the same is true for the cockpit. It comes with a new and improved hinge-joint that makes it lie flush against the bottom portion when closed. But it also now stays open when figures are inside. The canopy closes securely, thanks to the redesigned/modified parts. New hinges on the back panel also enable it to rest flush against the Millennium Falcon’s “play area” so that it camouflages itself without seams when covered. And while this functionality was available on the 1995 version, the updated hinge tabs allow you to securely attach the false floor on the underside of the back panel when not in use. Some other features include a “screwed down” Dejarik game table. The battery hatch also screws shut. The radar dish has a thicker and sturdier plug to attach to the top of the Millennium Falcon, but the radar dish doesn’t stay “up” as well this time around. You’ll also notice that the ramp struts are also modified. The same four buttons on the 1995 version are also here, but they activate much more impressive lights and sounds for the 2004 release. Perhaps the best update is the newly redesigned sublight engines (at the rear of the vehicle). They now feature brilliantly blue light-up electronics along with interacting sound effects. It’s a stunning display, and this upgrade alone makes the Millennium Falcon worth its repurchase. Again, this release of the Millennium Falcon came and went almost entirely unnoticed. If you have The Original Trilogy Collection, then you already have this 2005 Revenge Of The Sith release.
