The latest Star Wars story, Solo, comes out in a few short months. The first LEGO set we’ve seen is the LEGO Star Wars 75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, but I’m sure we’ll see more. I have to admit, I’m not sure how I feel about this iteration of the iconic ship.
LEGO Star Wars 75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon – The fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy!
I don’t think my questions about this model are the fault of LEGO. I’m sure they come from the movie, and I am sure they will be explained, alleviating my fears. I don’t like the Falcon in white. I hope it gets painted in the movie! And I don’t like that the are between the front mandibles is filled. From other pictures I’ve seen, it looks removable, and is probably a cargo pod. I still don’t like it!
I think SOLO will show us two important things:
1) As the name implies, I bet we see the Millenium Falcon make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs!
2) I bet we see how Han Solo saves Chewbacca.

Outsmart the villainous overseers and escape the Kessel Mines aboard the amazing Millennium Falcon! 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!
