Giclee (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is an invented name for the process of making fine-art prints from a digital source using inkjet printing. The word was coined to distinguish commonly known industrial “Iris proofs” from the fine-art prints artists were producing on the same printers. The name has since come to mean any high-quality inkjet print and is often used in galleries and print shops to denote such. In the past few years, the word (as a fine-art term) has come to be associated with prints using fade-resistant “archival” inks and the inkjet printers that use them. A wide variety of substrates are available, including various textures and finishes, such as matte photo paper, watercolor paper, cotton canvas, or artist textured vinyl.

A Star Wars fan since 1978, he has a passion for all things Star Wars and wonders why May the 4th is not a national holiday. He lives in the wastelands of middle Georgia with his wife, two girls, and two dogs.

Free Mini LEGO Millennium Falcon at Target!

Mini LEGO Millennium Falcon Set

If you are heading to Target this week, pick up some LEGO stuff and you will get a free Mini Millennium Falcon set. If you are not in the market for other LEGO sets (because you own them all), then you can still snag this for a cool $4.99.

Throughout this month Target stores in the USA are offering a different free gift with LEGO purchases each week and this week, 12-18 November, it’s this mini Millennium Falcon which is the only unique item on offer.

It’s packed in a polybag and appears to be the same as the model given away at Star Wars Celebration in 2015, which we don’t have in the database but which is included in the DK Ultimate LEGO Star Wars book. This one has a different printed plate, though.

There’s a shocking lack of quality control on the packaging: there’s a ‘n’ missing in the craft’s name and parts are, apparently, made in ‘Hungury’, among other places, according to the back of the bag.

You can pick up even more LEGO Star Wars sets at our affiliate site Entertainment Earth! Take a look at a few of the sets to add to your Christmas list below!

About LEGO:

LEGO is a line of building toys manufactured by the Lego Group, a privately held company based in Denmark.
