This Pocket-Sized Millennium Falcon Is Smuggling a Toolbox's Worth of Functionality

There is no ship more crucial to the Star Wars saga than the Millennium Falcon, having played a vital role in multiple trilogies already. And now, in addition to smuggling, escaping Imperial forces, and defeating space stations, this pocket-friendly version of the ship can help with simple home repairs.

It looks nothing like a Gerber or Leatherman multi-tool, but that’s because instead of contraband cargo, this $30 miniature Millennium Falcon is hiding an adjustable wrench, four hex keys, and two screwdrivers

A cargo hold on the underside of the ship with a magnetically-secured lid holds loose tools so they don’t go missing, or get discovered by Stormtroopers. And while the ship itself is made from die-cast zinc alloy, the hex keys and screwdrivers are made from carbon steel so they won’t snap in the heat of battling a stubborn screw.

Sigh. I used to get excited about non-standard multitools. But, unfortunately, they all have the exact same problem. Width.

Even your standard Swiss Army knife (my tool of choice - hey, I was a big Macgyver fan as a kid) is often too short and too wide to turn screws, Alans, or bolts in tight spaces. And, not being a carpenter, I seem to encounter ONLY fasteners in tight spaces. This thing? Kiss your knuckles goodbye, and get ready to reach for that ancient wood-handled screwdriver from your dad’s toolbox that’s been gathering dust under the sink for the last 20 years.

I applaud the idea, and the ingenuity. But I’d like a little more functionality and performance in multitools. Please.
