- Hasbro: Rebelscum has the new Millennium Falcon press release and a couple of high-res photos.

I polled a number of CJers on the releases of 2005 and here are the results:
Revenge of the Sith came out on top with 45.5% of the vote. Serenity made a strong show for second place with 40.9%, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was third with 27.3%.
Best Star Wars Fiction
Matt Stover’s Revenge of the Sith novelization was the clear winner with 81.0%.
Best SW nonfiction/reference
With 66.7%, Dressing a Galaxy was our favorite non-fiction publication.
Best genre TV
