We’re live from the show floor at Toy Fair New York 2018, where LEGO held a press-only event this morning to unveil the range of LEGO sets that will be launched this spring. Unfortunately, many of the rumored and previously leaked sets are not part of the range of products on display at Toy Fair, so our coverage is somewhat more limited than in previous years.
Overall, our impression of the new Millennium Falcon is that it’s very similar to the Episode VII Falcon from The Force Awakens. We’ll take a closer look after the jump.
The shape and size of the new Falcon match the Episode VII and earlier Original Trilogy incarnations of Han Solo’s iconic cargo ship.
The cockpit canopy detaches and can seat two minifigs.
The rear has an engine bank similar to the set of curved sections on the previous Falcon as well.
The area behind the gap between the front mandibles lifts up to allow the cargo pod between the mandibles to be removed.
The top panels open to reveal an essentially fully detailed interior.
We’ll be back on the show floor this weekend, so let us know if you have any questions in the comments and we’ll update the post with new information we learn.
Check out the rest of our Toy Fair New York 2018 coverage:
“See our full coverage of 75212 Dessel Run”. Is the Dessel run easier than the Kessel run?
It’s for all the builders of Desselpunk!
You can spot Solo and Chewie on this promotional image, so there’ll probably be at least two.
This article seems to indicate there’ll be four different characters – Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian and a female team member. (I haven’t looked up info on the film, so I don’t know who she’s supposed to be, at the moment.)
^ You should totally read TBB. ;-) We already covered the new characters in this previous post:
Her name is Qi’ra, played by Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones.
It was four whole days ago. It’s easy to forget it…
Anyone else wondering if the POD is compatible with the Force Awakens Lego Falcon 75105? The slots look a little different, but why are those slots even there on 75105????!
