Sorry to return this item, Great idea for star wars fans, but as soon as it was turned on the display screen froze.
Rated 4 out of 5 by sendChocolate Great Collectible !!
I bought this clock as an accessory to my son's SW themed bedroom. The appearance of the ship is realistic, the paint is white with areas painted to show "wear" of the ship, as it appears in the movie. Contrary to the previous post by another buyer, this clock runs on batteries and DOES NOT need an AC cord to work. There is a soft wire radio antenna included for radio function. The clock itself is digital, however it does not illuminate in the dark. You can see the time in the dark only if you press one of the buttons, which will display the time for about 3 secs. before fading out. The sound effects are very realistic, and there are several different types of sounds that play. What is nice is that the sound effects can be dialed down with the volume button if it is too loud. My son really enjoys the night light feature of the Falcon, which when you press the button, the back of the ship glows in a blue color like the thruster is in the movie. The clock itself is mounted on a sturdy clear acrylic base, however, one of the things I wish were different would be if the ship could tilt while on on the base. It is mounted in a fixed, angled position. The major negative thing about this purchase was getting the thing out of the packaging. It is very securely attached, and then some of the foam peanuts which were placed in the box got into the actual box and dust debris from these peanuts were in every part of the clock before I even got it unattached. If you are a Star Wars junkie, this is a great collectible to have.

This is really cool until you realize that in order for all the features to work, you need a power cord which is NOT included. Really? Include the cord even if it costs another couple bucks. What a bummer.
