©2018 LEGO Group

Happy Valentine’s Day! Because LEGO loves us so much, a special surprise has graced their social media pages this morning.

75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, right out of Solo: A Star Wars Story, has been revealed. It will be available on April 20th for $169.99 and 1414 pieces, alongside four other System sets and two Buildable Figures which will hopefully be revealed soon.

We will let you know when that happens - but in the meantime, let us know what you think in the comments below...

More photos can be found after the break. The Hollywood Reporter has also published an article highlighting the set.

Looks good but an easy pass for me tho.

At first I was thinking it could be quite nice to mod #75192 into the older Falcon, but on closer inspection it looks white rather than the grey of the Falcon these days? It would require a large amount of part substitutions.

> not officially revealing the new star wars movie sets the literal day before they release, causing months on end of Disney's lawyers trying and failing to wipe pics of them off the internet to the annoyance of literally everyone

ABOUT GODDAMN TIME TOO INNIT LADS

^ I was surprised, myself!

By in Ireland,

That looks so wrong it has me worried about the movie...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Chewie looks very different than on previous figures and we are still missing characters that come in the set. One Tie (at discount) and two or three Imperial Battlepacks are my goal

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

the artwork on Han looks spot on.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I don't mind the new design. It looks sleeker and faster than the old Falcon (even though that usually doesn't matter in Star Wars). I also like the Lando figure. The Chewie fig is interesting because it is good to get him with a different "hairstyle" but he does look a little weird

I like the design of the Millennium Falcon in Solo: A Star Wars Story but am disappointed with what we have seen of this set so far. The folding panels on top have always worked well so I am glad to see those return but the gaps between them are even larger than they were in 75105 Millennium Falcon, particularly at the rear. There is another large gap around the dorsal gunnery station hatch which could probably have been avoided and the rectenna attachment looks rather rudimentary too.

The minifigures look great though and I hope to be pleasantly surprised by the Millennium Falcon itself!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Well, the coolest cat ever to grace Star Wars has been revealed...
Lando is superb!

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

The minifigures look great.
The Falcon itself look ... not bad, but the cockpit is just the wrong scale. It looks completely out of proportion with the rest of the ship.

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

I hadn't realised that Shaft was going to be in this film. Excitement starting to build. :)

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Maybe it's just me, but it feels like there's a new Millennium Falcon model every five minutes these days. And while I like the white and blue on this one (it looks quite striking, as colour schemes go), the design leaves a lot to be desired, doesn't it? Particularly the roof.

Gravatar
By in Poland,

I hope the interior design, will be interesting, otherwise it's a pass. While i am excited to see the new Falcon in the movie, the 75105 is superior for me, in terms of outdoor design. The minifigs though, seem to be all exclusive to this set and they look aweeesome.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'll be interested to see if this is movie accurate.
I can see how Han may have taken a white and blue falcon and painted it grey. And I can see how he may have removed the bit between the mandibles. But I don't see how/why he would have moved the mandibles further apart...

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

It actually looks pretty good from the rear. However, too much interior space is visible from the outside and the color scheme just doesn't look that good to me.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Any danger of getting 75192 in stock ...
It was already in demand, then promoted and hyped and still 4+months later it still is rarely available for any meaningful period of time

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like the minifigures and the Falcon looks interesting - Lando is the easy standout part of the set though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Aside from the ridiculously over-sized cockpit present on every system-scale Falcon, my main problem with this set is the slope that reaches from the turret on top to the front of the craft. It should be a nice, straight slope all the way down; In this design, the angle changes halfway, making it appear dented.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The figs are okay. The build, however, is terrible. My brother has the 2015 TFA Falcon, and that one is infinitely better in terms of the hull. I like the colors, and the cockpit doesn't bother me that much, but those gaps are infuriating. I will not be getting this at all.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I haven't got a new system scale Falcon in so long. I'd love to get this one, especially for how unique the colors make it look.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can just imagine this thing collecting dust on shelves for years.

Gravatar
By in United States,

More Disney revisionist history, methinks...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks nice, but that big white plate in the front bothers me more than it should.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@omnium: I'm pretty sure the grey is supposed to be from years of not being cleaned, as opposed to being painted differently

Gravatar
By in United States,

I bet that the entire front cargo section can pop off to reveal the more traditional Falcon shape, also it looks like the sensor dish can fold out.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I will bite my tongue on the PPP, but 4 minifigs in a $170 set seems stingy.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I want to know what the interior looks like (though, I'm pretty sure I have a good idea... recolored version of what we've already seen. But STILL!)

Gravatar
By in United States,

That's is pretty sweet!
Definitely won't be picking it up, but maybe some of the figs.
Chewie and Lando look amazing!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Pass on this set (and the movie).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone else look at this thing and say “holy crap what did Han and Chewie do to this thing over the years”. This design has parts of the ship that aren’t even on the Falcon we saw in the other films.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why do people find it so shocking it looks different? It's just streamlining. Just like how the Y-Wings in the Clone Wars were sleeker because of the streamlining on them, and got all beat up and dirty as the panels were removed.

If you want a real life example, Google up a New York Central Hudson Steam Locomotive. Same engine class, but one looked futuristic and sleek in an Art Deco style; the other looked like a beat up weather worn workhorse. Exact same design, except one was covered in streamlining. As the engines aged, the streamlining was removed and the locomotives looked just like dirty old engines again.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sigh. ANOTHER millennium falcon. I wish lego paid this much attention to the creator line.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Another MF? I understand they're trying to get products in line with the film but this is just getting ridiculous. The MF is like the constant helicopters found in the City lineup.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks Brickset for official, high res. pics! I can now see that the mandibles are at least 4 studs too narrow in the front. The shape should basically be the same as previous versions except for adding a cargo area between the mandibles, rather than slimming the mandibles down to a point (unless the Solo story version is much different than standard YT-1300's). The result is that instead of a nice round hull extending out for the mandibles there is an awkward indentation (especially port side). The large gaps around the top hull are unsightly, and as others have stated the cockpit appears too large for the craft. Is this just me or is this MF smaller than the others? The price is also absurd, 170.00! Just under 100 more pieces than the 2015 version for an extra 20.00? Wages are stagnant here in the US, give us a break LEGO! The minifigures seem to be the one saving grace of this set, they look superb. IMO the new Han Solo minifigure is more believable as Harrison Ford than the actor chosen for the movie lol. Definately want the young Lando though, that's one cool dude of a minifigure.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I was looking forward to the kessel run MF... Until I saw this official image, and now I'm not so excited, I prefer the s main STAR WARS version..

Atleast there's still the han solo land speeder and the buildable figures to look forward to..

Gravatar
By in Norway,

I'll probably get this in 2 years when it's on sale like I did with 75105

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

@ Double J Bricks
Yes, me. In the trailer the Falcon looks brand new. How in the world did they manage to turn it into a 'hunk of junk' in about 10 years time? And besides that, how does it fit in with the Falcon landing on Coruscant in RotS? Which was confirmed by Lucasfilm being the one and only Falcon.

Gravatar
By in Portugal,

@TioBella The set has seven minifigures: the four announced + two droids and the main villain

Gravatar
By in United States,

$169.99 US for 1400 peices and only 4 minifigs? I’m really not a fan of this design, and with that price it’s an easy pass.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I thought about getting this, but now this is really confusing. I expected the TFA version with a modified front. I really like the minfigures.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@TioBella: the actual minifig count will be seven, Lego (probably on orders from the Disney lawyers) didn't release images of all the figures, ostensibly to avoid spoilers. Which is kind of a moot point if you've already seen the leaked images...

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Chewie looks so happy <3

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Omfg... ONE more MF and will STOP collecting Lego. 4ever!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Looks like that solid unit which is between the mandibles might be removable... perhaps a plot point in the movie?

Gravatar
By in United States,

(As of this writing) The majority of reactions to this set on other sites like TBB and The Brick Fan have been a LOT nastier and imo far more asinine than what i've seen here, so far. Ironically, a lot of the nerd rage has almost nothing to with the set itself.
Smh.

Back on topic, i'm surprised no one noticed (or pointed out) that Qi'ra's ponytail was originally a Friends piece. I found it interesting because AFOLs have been putting Friends hair pieces on regular minifigs for literally years now, and lego has only just now gotten in on crossover mini-hair thing.

As for the set as a whole, it looks like a decent set, not great, but not terrible either. Just kinda... "meh." I'll probably bricklink the figs.

Gravatar
By in Austria,

If the movie ends with Clarke's character reporting to her superior after double-crossing Han to complete a task for the Alliance, and that superior turns out to be Senator Garm Bel Iblis, leader of the Corellian Resistance, and he says something like: "Good work, Commander Tharen. You did not let your feelings compromise the mission and showed true commitment to the cause.", I'll actually go see it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

$170 buys a modular - much rather that than this.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I could be totally wrong on this, but if I go pixel peeping...

About 6 studs back from the front of the mandibles, there is a joint in the construction that is further accentuated by the 1x2 grilles that are snot-mounted and appear to slip past the more-forward construction. This 6-stud-deep front assembly seems to be well integrated with the infill section between the two mandibles.

Prediction time...

I'm guessing there is some sort of Kessel Run plot point where this forward-most assembly, including the mandible infill, is jettisoned, resulting in the classic MF silhouette we know and love. I suspect LEGO has incorporated this as a play feature.

Regarding color scheme - Han gets most of the credit for the massive modifications and upgrades to the Falcon, including capital-ship class armor on much of the hull, which would account for the color change.

Gravatar
By in Austria,

Oh and I advise everyone to go read A. C. Crispin's Han Solo Trilogy from the late 90s.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks to XIII and Spartan for the clarification - 7 figs it is.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Pretty sure #cbornsh2 is right - it's already confirmed that the Kessel Run features in the movie so it stands to reason that the cargo unit in between the mandibles is just that; a cargo unit. You can track where the mandibles actually start, 6 studs back from the front. That leaves the mandibles 10 studs long on the inside, about 6 studs wide at the base (slightly different due to panel layout) and two studs wide at the end - pretty much the same as in #75105.

I mean it's not like Han has a history of dropping his cargo at the first sign of an Imperial Starship or anything...

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Yeah... that’s exactly what I already mentioned earlier in the thread: that the unit between the mandibles is removable... ;-)

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Looks smaller than the last few falcons...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Talk about flogging a dead horse... no thanks Lego.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hard pass. Nope. Not even going to the movie. This set, and the crappy trailer, have ruined it for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

A surprise to be sure but a welcome one.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I understand that MF are coming thick and fast, but I don't see an issue with this one as it is so drastically different to normal, its almost a different ship!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This looks rather cheap. What a great modifier Solo is.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It'll be riddled with stickers to go with all the gaps.

Definite pass.

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

They did reveal the beautiful Kessel droid, you should have shared that pic as well... figs are great, the Falcon... same ol' same ol'

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks great! I'll be waiting til it goes on sale, for sure, but I dig the alternate design and the minifigs (selection and quality) look superb.

Love the new Chewie!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@McBoom - I was actually trying to figure out any kind of feasible timeline on The Falcon at this point... and there isn't one. By the time Revenge of the Sith rolls around, The Falcon is already heavily weathered and modified. Ignoring the fact that The Empire already clearly exists in this film, Han would have to be 7 or 8 years old for the timeline to work at all, and if that's what Disney was shooting for... they flubbed the casting worse than I thought.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Finally! I was wondering when TLG would at last get round to releasing a Millennium Falcon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

There are actually more minifigures than 4

Gravatar
By in United States,

@XStrike & McBoom: i smell a retcon coming on...(or at least, some story repair.) specifically, the YT-1300 that we "saw" (in the background, blink-and-you-miss-it,) in ROTS wasn't the Millennium Falcon.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@richl
I see what you mean. I wasn't considering that the whole nose would come off with the cargo insert, making the mandibles shorter and stubbier. Makes a lot of sense...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I've got nothing else to say.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What a flounder of a Millennium Falcon.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Love the coffee maker in the cockpit (see images at TBB). Chewie looks kind of odd though, is this supposed to be a younger version of him or what?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

There was an interior cockpit shot on Brothers Brick as well, revealing ... an espresso machine.
nice.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Wow - I hope the film reveals why so much of it changed before 'A New Hope'

Gravatar
By in United States,

To be released in 2022: The Ultimate ULTIMATE Collector's Edition Millennium Falcon!!! With Minifigures from all 3 story arcs! Only $1,000!!!

Still want to see how they explain how a parsec, a unit of distance, can be referenced by Han as a unit of time...

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Clearly white bricks are much more expensive than grey. It looks exactly liek the last one but white and the front filled in.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Don't forget the MF is a *heavily modified* YT-1300, which itself was modular by design. No need to fret if it looks different.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow you guys, really?
You're complaining about another Falcon coming out even though there's a whole new movie centering on Han Solo coming out, so of course there's a new Falcon.
Which is actually an OLD Falcon because the movie is a prequel and Lando Calrissian owns the Falcon at this point. Also, this Falcon is based on original Ralph McQuarrie concept art, so it's not "Disney revisionism" as some particularly hilarious individual complained. :)

To summarize: LOL

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Just need about 8000 white pieces so I can build a UCS version.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@Privatematrix: simple, just buy two Taj Mahals ;-)

Oh, and LEGO can indeed release a Red Dwarf set now, they have got the Cat minifig already :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think I have to have a Childish Gambino minifig.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Hi folks, is it only me, or is the picture showing an "folding-misstake"? I really think the frontal panel is supposed to be under the triangular ones on the left and right side. That would make the gap a little smaller... ;-) Anyway, besides the kessel run droid it's an easy pass for me. Cause it's white... and as we all know, white LEGO pieces don't like sunlight!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

With the new girl, we now have perfect hair for Jyn Erso! Yay!

Gravatar
By in Italy,

Original design or not, with all these gaps between the plates of the fuselage it was inevitable that Han would lose the Jabba's precious cargo.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

FINALLY, a new Falcon! About freakin' time, innit?

Gravatar
By in United States,

The main issue here is the SW tax is getting ridiculous! To have non-UCS sets now clocking in at $170 is just crazy. I already thought the 2 big sets from Ep 8 were over-priced enough. Disney must be getting greedy or something. The design of the ship is a surprise to me, but that's my own fault because I don't watch trailers or other such nonsense before a movie comes out.

Gravatar
By in Greece,

Why buy a white one when you can buy the good old grey MF from the original trilogy (the cheap version with the "new" antenna)? Mildly interested in the minifigs but other than that, you can't be a serious SW fan in Europe these days due to the absurdly price differences between here and the US (Viva Mexico).

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

An another closer shot from the nose section suggests me, that the front section can be separated (slide in and out somehow) from the main hull. Maybe this is the cargo compartment that Han dropped from his ship after seeing Imperial Star Destroyers as mentioned by Greedo in "A New Hope"?
https://i2.wp.com/www.fbtb.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/75212_Func_03_01.jpg?ssl=1
Besides I really like this version of the MF. For me, it will be a must buy, cause I dont have any of the earlier (...hmm, or instead the later) versions.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I don't like this version of the Millennium falcon. The colors don't suite the falcon and the new nose looks ugly too, even if it does look like this in "Solo". I rather take the 7965 version.

Besides that I hope the rest of the sets will be something more to look forward to. Didn't like the last batch of sets from TLJ either.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I know why it's so hideously expensive: it's a new colour. It's not white, its ultra-light-bluish grey. A colour exclusive to this set of course.
;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

If I didn't already have 75105 I might be interested; it's interesting to see what the Millennium Falcon looked like "fresh out of the box" as it were. But as it is, it's just a slightly different version of a set I already have, and thus not worth what it costs, to me. So an easy pass for me. But it's nice to see anyway. I'm sure some Star Wars completists will love the thing, but I can live without having every single version of the Falcon in my collection.

I'm not complaining about the thing existing, and I have no complaints about its appearance. (The fact I have zero interest in the movie this comes from is irrelevant; I own many Lego sets based on source material I had no interest in or even seen. I base my opinions on the sets, not the source material.) I'll come right out and say: it's a great looking set. (I think it's very appropriate that it's based on the original concept art of the Falcon, since this is the earliest in the SW time period it's being shown.) I think it's overpriced by about $20 though; it really shouldn't be significantly more than 75105 was, and that was $150 when it came out.

Just, I personally don't feel a want or need for this one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just wanted to say: like many of you, I was confused at first upon seeing the new design, in that I thought it already would have been quite worn and weathered by the time Han got it, but now it seems it got all its wear in just a couple years' time, which seemed way too quick to me, but then recently two things came to mind that I didn't think about before: 1) ships can get repaired and upgraded to like-new status, and it's quite possible previous owners (including who I'm about to mention in my second point) actually did some upkeep, while Han and Chewie, despite getting in heavy action, just didn't, beyond basic repairs, and 2) Han won the ship from Lando, and why would the Lando Calrissian that we know have a personal ship as beat-up and dirty as the Falcon we see in the Original Trilogy?

Another little tidbit of info that came out recently through I think an interview, is that Lando uses the Falcon more for entertainment and such than for work. Thus, it makes even more sense that he'd do as much as he could to clean it up and keep it that way if it was ever dirtied before.
