TIE Fighter Music Box: The Empire Strikes Chords

by Conner Flynn

Watchmakers MB&F created this TIE fighter-themed music box with an an amazing eye toward craftsmanship – and debt. You see, it will cost you almost $20,000.

On each side of this mechanical marvel, there is a roller dotted with over 1,400 tiny pins that have each been assembled by hand into 1,400 tiny drill holes. It also sports a precision-tuned 72-tooth comb made from a special steel alloy that plays six tunes, including the themes from Star Wars, James Bond, Mission Impossible, The Godfather, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence, and The Persuaders. It seems like an odd combination of tunes for sure.

These custom music boxes were made to celebrate the company’s tenth anniversary in 2015. MB&F only issued 99 of these music boxes in all. It is lovely, but I would rather spend that sum on Star Wars toys myself.
