More Evidence Solo: A Star Wars Story Will Feature The Kessel Run


The set is 1,414 pieces and costs $170 (UK price TBA), and comes bundled with minifigures of Han, Lando, Qi-'ra, a "Kessel droid", and a version of Chewbacca that looks more like some sort of troll than any of the figures we've seen in the past. According to LEGO's description of the 1,414-piece set (via EW), those who buy it will be able to "outsmart the villainous overseers and escape the Kessel Mines aboard the wonderful Millennium Falcon!". We've seen the first trailer and gotten the official synopsis. He (or she!) is an Imperial Range Trooper, who looks a damn sight more rugged up that the Snowtroopers of The Empire Strikes Back.

On the higher end of the Force Link set is a $100 (roughly £70, AU$125) depiction of the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, which will include lights, sounds and rumble effects to represent the vehicle kicking into hyperdrive.

The set will hit stores this April and will retail for $169.99.

Ehrenreich adds that there's a more functional reason why the Falcon looks so shabby once Han wins it off Lando in a game of sabacc.

The younger Han Solo from Hasbro's Black Series sports a brown jacket and his gun. However, a voiceover part would not have really worked out in a Star Wars movie, so it's good that we don't have to worry about that. With only an estimated decade between Solo and A New Hope, why is there such a drastic variation in the ship's overall appearance? Solo: A Star Wars Story will pull back the curtain on this period of the smuggler's life, and ever since director Ron Howard posted a "spicy" picture a year ago during filming, it's been strongly suggested that the upcoming Star Wars movie will show Han flying the Kessel Run, a feat he completed in less than 12 parsecs, as he bragged to Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope.

"The Falcon should always reflect the personality of its captain."
