1/144 Millennium Falcon (Awakening of the Force) - Bandai
Coming in October 2015, a new mold Millennium Falcon  to tie into the upcoming release of the new Star War film. It looks great, I can't decipher if its a kit or finished pre painted item... However, talk on the web points to Bandai taking over the license from Fine Molds?

Lets hope F-Toys gets a new Star Wars licence for some of the smaller craft in 1/144 too!
