“What a piece of junk!”
“She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid”

“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.

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.
As we approach the official release of The Last Jedi, kicking off with the red carpet event this weekend, now may be the time to check out of casual online browsing, especially social media.

Again, official TV spots and trailers are fair game to talk about but if you’re sensitive to “spoilers” the onus is on you to avoid them or seek them out. It is our responsibility to give you the option. If you wish to discuss spoilers, head to our forums.

Finally tonight, I also managed to find 5 Black Series figure listings on Brickseek for characters “Zeus”, “Vesta Guard”, “Hermes”,”Athena” and “Artemis” from Solo: A Star Wars Story. This list also confirms the theory that the code names for Solo: A Star Wars Story will rely on mythological names for their characters.
