Before She Was the Fastest Hunk of Junk in the Galaxy

“What a piece of junk!”
“She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid”
“This bucket of bolts is never gonna get us past that blockade”
“Then we just float away…” “…with the rest of the garbage”
“She’s the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy”
“The garbage will do”
“Blast that piece of junk out of the sky!”

The Millennium Falcon has always been the subject of mockery in terms of its appearance, but there was a time when the Falcon was all-new. Han said he made some “special modifications” and soon we’ll get to see what it looked before Han took ownership.  With Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out in a few months, be prepared to start seeing a fresh, slightly sleeker depiction (and a slightly different silhouette) for one of the most iconic starships in film. And as you’d expect, we’ll be seeing a wide range of toys and collectibles from Hasbro, Mattel, LEGO and more as well.
