One-of-a-Kind Millennium Falcon Piano Up For Auction | Nerdist
We’d enjoy hearing John Williams’ iconic Star Wars score if it were being whistled by Lloyd Christmas, but we’ve always been particularly fond of the incredible medley that was performed on custom-built pianos that were decorated to pay homage to the galaxy far, far away.
Well, we’ve got a good feeling you’re going to be excited by this opportunity, because the Millennium Falcon piano from the video is now up for sale. Player Piano, who made the most beautiful looking hunk of junk instrument we’ve ever seen, along with the amazing R2-D2 piano also seen in the “Ultimate Star Wars Medley” featuring pianist Sonya Belousova, has put it up for auction on eBay. The auction runs for a week, and as of now there is currently no opening bid for the listed price of $7,500, which does not include the assumed cost of having it shipped from their storage unit in Los Angeles (which is a factor since the piano lights up but doesn’t fly). We are sure though that soon enough some Star Wars fanatic who loves to sit down and play (Han) solo Star Wars medleys will jump into hyperdrive to have this travel into their home. And if not, their has to be some cantina owner out there who knows that such a unique and elegant piece would be sure to bring tons of Star Wars lovers to their establishment. Though that increased business is sure to also bring in some scum and villainy. Still totally worth it.
