UPDATE 2! First Official LEGO and Hasbro Toys from Solo: A Star Wars Story Revealed!

Just three days to go before the Toy Fair in New York, and Hasbro and LEGO have revealed some of their toys from Solo: A Star Wars Story. There aren’t any surprises or new characters, but there is a cool hint about why the Millennium Falcon looks different in the movie, and we also get a much closer look at the very cool Range Stormtrooper.


First we start with LEGO’s reveal, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter. One of the most anticipated sets from the movie is of course the new Millennium Falcon. The set consists of 1,414 pieces and will cost $169.99. Here’s a brief description of the set:

Pull amazing maneuvers from the cockpit. Jump in the laser turrets and fire back at pursuing craft. Then check the hyperdrive and get ready to jump to safety! After all that excitement, kick back with Han and his friends with a drink from the bar, while you let Chewbacca win at Dejarik. Then it’s off to bed for a well-earned snooze in the bunk aboard the fastest ship in the galaxy!



The article doesn’t specifically say what minifigures you will get except for the young Han Solo, but from previous leaks we know that the set will come with 7 minifigures – Qi’ra, Han Solo, Chewie, Lando, Kessel Operations Droid (the red one below), the droid DD-DB, and the mysterious character Quay Tolsite.




Now, let’s take a moment to look at some of the new toys from Hasbro via Entertainment Weekly . As mentioned previously, there’s not much in the way of reveals here as we are already familiar with the characters and the new look of the Millennium Falcon.



What is interesting, however, are the comments about the nose section of the Falcon. According to Entertainment Weekly (and I tend to agree with their assessment), the nose section clearly pulls out into a smaller ship (much like how the Phantom docks to the Ghost in Star Wars: Rebels). Maybe this section gets lost in the movie? Or perhaps Han just doesn’t see much use in a shuttle attachment once he gains ownership of the vessel. Either way, there does seem to be a definite seam separating the new section and the familiar outline of the classic Falcon, so it will be fun to see what they do with that in the movie (also, take note of the fold-out canons on the sides of the nose section).




If the nose section of the Falcon does indeed detach to become a separate vessel, the idea is actually not without precedent as can be seen in this never released toy from Kenner back in the mid 1980’s.



The additional ship, the “F-LER” (freight-loading external rover), was intended to be a supplemental attachment to the Falcon toy, but it never saw production due to the line’s cancellation. There is also some information on the vessel on Wookieepedia (here) that provides an in-universe background for the ship (special thanks to our staff member Chad for this really awesome find!).





And we just got Hasbro’s official description of the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon toy, which confirms that there is a mini ship in front:

(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $99.99/Available: Spring 2018)
Make the KESSEL RUN in less than 12 parsecs with the MILLENNIUM FALCON! Relive the adventure and imagine flying through every obstacle like ace pilot HAN SOLO with speed and action. Fans will experience flashing lights and sounds as they pretend to race along KESSEL RUN. Press the button to pretend that the iconic starship kicks in to hyperdrive with lights and sounds. Press the button a second time for accelerated lights and sounds as well as activate the rumble pack vibrations! Push the button a third time to pretend that your ship picks up even more speed and watch the panels pop off before rumbling to the finish line! Comes with an exclusive 3.75-inch scale HAN SOLO figure and removable mini ship. Both the figure and mini ship are FORCE LINK 2.0 enabled, with phrases and sounds activated by the wearable.


So there you have it.



And last but not least, io9 has a first look at Hasbro’s 6-inch Black Series line. We get to see the new Range Stormtrooper in greater detail and Lando really looks badass.




We hope to have more info on Saturday when we will be attending the Toy Fair in New York so stay tuned.

    I really like how the look of that Range Stormtrooper is like a striped down version of the Snowtrooper from ESB.

    • February 15, 2018 at 12:55 am

      Yeah, same chest plate and codpiece. Also seeing elements of a TIE/X Wing with the harness and an officer with the comm pads. I’m really digging this.

  • February 14, 2018 at 6:18 pm

    Cool figures from Hasbro. Well, with this MF toy seems pretty clear that separating that part of the front, the form we use to know of the ship is there. And those four parts? Lol I think they will take the MF to the limit and Kessel run will be part of it. Can’t wait to see the evolution of the ship.

  • February 14, 2018 at 6:21 pm

    Couple thoughts: “Range” Trooper suggests mountain range operations (we’ve seen plenty of mountains already in the teasers), so my guess is the mech boots allow them to jump across large distances, like up cliff faces or over canyons.

    Regarding the new nose section on the Falcon, my hunch is it’s a detachable cargo container where Lando/Han smuggle a large amount of spice from Kessel. Hence Jabba’s quote, “If only you hadn’t had to dump that shipment of spice. I just can’t make exceptions. Where would I be if every pilot who smuggled for me dumped their shipment at the first sign of an Imperial starship? It’s not good business.”

    • February 14, 2018 at 6:57 pm

      Only thought on the the cargo pod is that the Lego set doesn’t seem to highlight a removable pod as a feature. If it IS detachable, I don’t think we’ll see it in the film.

      • February 14, 2018 at 7:00 pm

        The Hasbro version does indeed appear to have that as a feature, and I doubt they’d give that away too soon via Lego. So, I disagree, but we’ll see. 🙂

      • February 14, 2018 at 7:20 pm

        You can see the separation in the bricks where it WILL detach!

      • February 15, 2018 at 1:46 am

        look above, picture shows where it can detach at the lego version.
        PS im a lego collector/builder

        • February 15, 2018 at 5:37 pm

          Good catch – yeah, I think…you may be right actually.

    • February 14, 2018 at 9:45 pm

      There is a fanfilm which shows how Han disposed the cargo. It was from the back hold, the elevator was lowered to open space and the big containers were released and smashed some pursuing Ties

    • February 14, 2018 at 9:56 pm

      Looking at the Lego version, it seems it is also detachable, the added nose is not visibly hard connected, even the overlapping white tile 1×3 is sitting at another tile. also the end of the original nose is visible to have a partially covered grill 1×2 with no other reason than to reveal the short nose. In the lego version the nose will detach with the middle top section up to the original middle section – thats my guess
      see attached picture with highlighted points of disconnection https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/55f5cba7eaae5734927caf462c49d46dec75042703a84b32f04197d8ce617439.png

  • February 14, 2018 at 6:21 pm

    I keep telling myself the Lego Falcon will be a worthwhile investment – lol

  • February 14, 2018 at 7:14 pm

    Not a big fan of the fur trooper tbh. It’s interesting that the panels seem to be removable to reveal more familiar aspects of the Falcon which possibly suggests at some point in the film they may come off – Or it’s a toy that’s supposed to be played with!

    • February 14, 2018 at 8:58 pm

      You got a point, and if this movie is really connecting dots and answering questions, I guess we will see the Falcon going from Lando’s party-yatch to Han’s piece-of-junk abode.

  • February 14, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    On one hand I think it’s cool and nostalgic, but on another hand…

    Why are they using the same mold for the Falcon from the Kenner OT days?

  • February 14, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    These 3/4 figures look waaaay better than the statues we got for Luke. Guess they got the message from tanking toy sales from the last two movies. My Wal-Mart still has peg warmers from TFA. The toy roll out for TLJ was the worst I’ve ever seen.

    • February 14, 2018 at 8:52 pm

      dude shut up already you edgy hater kid

      • February 14, 2018 at 8:59 pm

        Hater? I said they looked better. You not liking my comment doesn’t make TFA/TLJ toys not suck balls. Eat me Mr. Positive.

        • February 14, 2018 at 9:18 pm

          If you liked TFA/TLJ you wouldn’t be saying that. BANDWAGON ALERT! BANDWAGON ALERT!

          • February 15, 2018 at 1:44 am

            But of course we would. They replaced SA figures for 12Eur with crap 5POA for the same price here. The quality is now a bit better with TLJ, but still its a crap 5PO non posable figure

          • February 17, 2018 at 5:13 pm

            Same with Rogue One (which I really like BTW). I was stoked about the Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe figures as they are some of my fav martial arts stars but Chirrut can’t even hold the staff in both hands. I only grab the figures of characters I like, I don’t have to have everything and after decades of waiting for a new Luke figure we get a shit show and no light saber. The figures from the prequels destroyed this crap they are putting out now.

          • February 17, 2018 at 6:55 pm

            Im waiting on the R1 crew in 3.75″ SA form, then ill buy.

    • February 14, 2018 at 9:39 pm

      Im wondering when they renew the 3.75″ super articulated line. Im not interested in the 6″ line as:
      1) they are too big to have them all displayed
      2) i already have a nice collection of 3.75″
      3) they are 3times that expensive as 3.75″

      I own only a few 6″ and only from favorite characters.
      So im curious when they get the message that 5 pont of articulation is not desired by collectors and kids are not interested too much in new characters -> hence the rotting TFA/R1 5PO figures in 50% and more discounts on the shelves.

      • February 17, 2018 at 3:54 pm

        There are like 6-7 new vintage series 3.75′ due for release. Although all but one are repacks, the new one is the Dr whatshername which won the fan vote. What I don’t like about the figures over the last few years is the cheaper plastic and dodgier painting. The 3.75′ black series R1 figures for example may have more joints, but they are super stiff so you can’t really pose them much better than you could the 5poa figures. I think they changed the peg size on the feet too as I can’t seem to get them to fit snugly on the same stands as earlier figures.

        Also I had a 6′ Jyn Erso figure in my cabinet which fell against the glass, it was about 24 hours before I uprighted it in which time the the weight of the figure on one of it’s legs was enough to make that leg buckle at the joint- very rubbery plastic.

  • February 14, 2018 at 7:51 pm

    Gotta be honest. I’m REALLY diggin’ the Falcon. That is a sexy as sin YT-1300 freighter.

  • February 14, 2018 at 8:04 pm

    That 6″ Lando is excellent, I hope the production version’s face sculpt looks that good. The range trooper is good, too.

    • February 15, 2018 at 5:35 pm

      Sculpt will be good. It’s the paint ops that Hasbro will botch.

  • February 14, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    It only know dawns on me that the Falcon’s cannon is different too.

    And what’s with the old Kenner recycle trend? First the Lego Sandspeeder, now the Falcon’s front attachment.
    Not saying I don’t like it, I love the nods to those 80’s dark times, it might just be simply coincidental..

    • February 14, 2018 at 9:59 pm

      Who says filled front nose is a nod to Kenner ? Its in the Falcon Owners Manual that the filled nose is one of the official variant CEC is providing on a YT model when its purchased.

      • February 15, 2018 at 7:18 am

        I imagine the kenner thing came first. You do however win geekiest comment of the day. Your prize is a copy of a Falcon Owners…oh.

  • February 14, 2018 at 11:19 pm

    “Aren’t you a little short for a Han Solo?”

  • February 14, 2018 at 11:49 pm

    No moloch?

  • February 15, 2018 at 12:27 am

    I think it will be a really cool scene if the kessel run tears parts off the falcon and it comes out the other side looking more like the falcon we know

    • February 15, 2018 at 5:34 pm

      Sounds like it from the description. Don’t know if I really want to see that though; seems…lazy and obvious.

      • February 15, 2018 at 6:29 pm

        Least lazy and obvious thing about the film really…..we know it’s Lando’s ship….we know han is going to get it…..we know he is gonna join the imperial academy….we know he is gonna meet chewie….we know he is gonna do the kessel run in less than 12 parsecs (Not in this order)….everybody thought the front bit was just a small ship or cargo hold to conveniently dump spice at the first sight of an imperial cruiser until this toy has perhaps spoiled it…..we shall see

  • February 15, 2018 at 4:04 am

    You know, I can live with that trooper design. He looks like a mix of armor that’d be readily available. Not yet another completely unique unit type.

  • February 15, 2018 at 4:28 am

    Alden Ehrenreich: height 5 ‘ 8 ”
    Harrison Ford: height 6 ‘ 1 ”


    • February 15, 2018 at 7:00 am

      Are you telling us 5 inches is a big deal?

      • February 15, 2018 at 3:34 pm

        i’m sure there’s a joke hidding in there…

    • February 15, 2018 at 3:04 pm

      So? It’s FICTIONAL.

  • February 15, 2018 at 4:41 am

    Why do they have a stormtrooper wearing a fur coat???
    Those two things are like plaids and stripes, they don’t go together.

  • February 15, 2018 at 7:08 am

    Strange that the rrp is $100 for the falcon- it doesn’t look smaller than the TFA one which I’m guessing cost more than $100 on release (I think it was like £150 in the uk, but we usually pay more).

    • February 15, 2018 at 5:33 pm

      No interior apart from the cockpit? No interior play space is mentioned at any rate. Can’t tell for sure, but it also looks kinda like stickers for the sidewall details. Bottom line – it’s a current-year Hasbro vehicle; it’s going to be an overpriced piece of shit. Count on it.

      • February 17, 2018 at 3:44 pm

        I suspect you are right. I’m glad I picked up the huge legacy edition Falcon years ago when it was half-price in toys R’ us. They definitely don’t make toys like they very recently used to!

  • February 15, 2018 at 10:58 pm

    The falcon looks like junk, buy a vintage one or splurge for the Legacy.
