Star Wars LEGO Blowout Unveils Range Trooper And Original Falcon For Han Solo Spinoff


UPDATE: These images have been removed at the request of LEGO.

Part of the beauty behind Lucasfilm’s decision to slate Solo: A Star Story Story for May 2018 is that the illustrious franchise is still on cloud nine following the release of The Last Jedi.

Indeed, this relatively quick turnaround led many to assume that, in the name of synergy, Solo‘s first-look teaser would be attached to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which has since become one of the highest-grossing films of all time ($1.18 billion and counting). Alas, that wasn’t the case, but a trailer is coming, and the folks over at Star Wars News Net have unearthed some new intel to tide us over.

As is often the case for a big-name blockbuster so far out from release, these alleged story clues have been lifted from the official LEGO set for Solo: A Star Wars Story, so don’t take SWNN’s findings as gospel. With that said, below you’ll be able to take a closer look at the original Millennium Falcon, long before the famous freighter lost its circular radar dish during the Battle of Endor.

There’s also a peek at the film’s old-school Stormtrooper, which appears to be a mix of the classic ‘trooper and those Imperial Scouts famous for zipping around Endor on their prolonged speeder bikes.

The final toy set is also pretty interesting in that Star Wars fans believe it’s the same landspeeder originally teased by Ron Howard, who climbed on board Solo: A Star Wars Story in lieu of Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Here’s a rundown of each LEGO piece, courtesy of Reddit:

75207 Imperial Patrol Battle Pack
75209 Han Solo Landspeeder
75210 Landspeeder
75211 Imperial TIE Fighter
75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon

Solo: A Star Wars Story has been penciled in for release on May 25th, and will surely be ready to unveil its inaugural teaser in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
