So I finally snagged a Falcon this week, using a 10% discount and my employee discount. I must say, it's impressive. Check out the photos of it with my Golden Retriever, and compared to the older-sized Falcon. On a side note, I'm considering driving it to work tomorrow. As far as features and sound effects, it's really amazing. I still wish there was more access for figures, but you do get a surpisingly amount of play area. The back of the Falcon does not open up, but the entire port cargo hatch "hallway" is used to hold the mini-fighter, and the cargo hold (which is accessible through doors near the medical bed) is actually quite large, taking up nearly a third of the covered back of the ship. So, you can a store a lot of figures in there. The remaining space houses the batteries (3 x AA) and sound box/engine lights. Things I wish it had were.....a working cockpit door/hallway......for structural and lighting reasons....the "neck" is closed off. Again....more access to the back...the cargo hold is big....lots of room to add more features in. I think for the price a few more extras would have been nice too......like a 3-pack of mynocks.......a treadwell repair droid.....gas masks.....tool box to fall on Han....etc. Admittedly I already have most of these....but they would have been nice to throw in. Overall.....very cool.
