(Hasbro, 1997) A limited edition Millennium Falcon Extraordinaire 6ft store display created by Hasbro for Toys 'R Us. Constructed of sturdy styrene plastic with identical deco and decals to the Power of the Force version, the Falcon Extraordinaire is a direct tool-up of the toys produced by Kenner and Hasbro and represents the true size of the spacecraft scaled for 3.75" action figures. The ship has a brass plaque bolted to the top gunport engraved with the edition number, "500," and includes a dish antenna, top and bottom quad lasers, cable hanger (one cable is absent, though the metal anchor that supports the ship is included), and internal lighting elements designed to be powered by an AC adapter (an electrical port is present, but the piece does not come with adapter; the lights are untested). An estimated 700 Extraordinaires were produced for a tie-in promotion with the Star Wars Special Edition theatrical rereleases, though the true figure is unknown. Later, Toys 'R Us raffled off 500 of the surviving examples for charity. Interestingly, given the edition number, this would have been the final Extraordinaire awarded in the contest. The piece was never subsequently displayed, and retains the shipping box and a copy of the winner's agreement, as it was transmitted to the original recipient. Measuring 76.92''x53.85'' and 15.38" deep, the piece is in very good condition with a minor dent in the styrene on the tail of the ship, and some wear to the rear sublight drive exhaust with a small scuff to the plastic and hole in the decal in the recessed area, and a small crack and chip in the bottom edge. Many of the decals have come loose over time. However, the vast majority appear to be present, and could readily be reattached. Truly one of the most impressive Star Wars toys ever created, the Extraordinare is a holy grail for any Star Wars collector.
