With fans still processing the well-received trailer for Solo which dropped yesterday, LucasFilm has unveiled the first wave of Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise. Most of these items will be available for purchase starting Friday, April 13, and many are available for pre-order at Wal-Mart, Amazon and the online Disney store. Perhaps the biggest item of them all is LEGO's new Star War Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, which all but confirms long-held rumors that this famous smuggling run will be shown in the movie. Here's the official description for this LEGO Millennium Falcon, which is comprised of 1,414 LEGO pieces.
"Travel with Han Solo, Chewbacca and their friends with the LEGO Star Wars Kessel Run Millennium Falcon. This LEGO brick version of the iconic Corellian freighter from Solo: A Star Wars Story features a 2-minifigure cockpit with detachable canopy, 2 spring-loaded shooters, sensor dish, ramp, and rotating top and bottom laser turrets with 2 gunner seas. This amazing Star Wars toy also features opening hull plates for easy access to the detailed interior, which includes a cargo area with couch and Dejarik hologame table, bar, bunk, missile storage compartment, and a buildable hyperdrive with repair tools. Also includes 6 minifigures and a DD-BD droid. 1414 pieces."
There are no pricing details for this item, or any of the other items unveiled today, but it will most likely come in much cheaper than the enormous $800 Millennium Falcon LEGO set released last year, which was comprised of 7,541 piece, making it the largest LEGO set ever released, spanning 33 inches long, 22 inches wide and 8 inches tall. Hasbro is also releasing their own version of the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, which comes with a 3.75-inch Han Solo figure. Fans can also push a button on the toy to activate sounds and flashing lights, and both the ship and the figure are ForceLink 2.0-enabled.
Hasbro is also releasing The Black Series Six-Inch figures which include Solo characters like Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), but also The Last Jedi characters like Rey (Daisy Ridley) and DJ (Benicio del Toro). There will also be two-pack assortments featuring two different figures, with one of these assortments featuring Lando Calrissian and a "Kessel Guard," which will also be enabled with ForceLink 2.0 technology. For those Star Wars fans who prefer board games to action figures, Hasbro is also releasing a Solo: A Star Wars Story version of Monopoly that will uncover "memorable moments in Han Solo's life." The company will also release a ForceLink 2.0 starter set that includes the wearable technology and also a 3.75-inch Han Solo figure that will be exclusive to the ForceLink 2.0 starter set. Hasbro is also releasing new Mighty Muggs, 12-Inch figures, a Class B landspeeder vehicle with a Han Solo 3.75-inch figure and a 16-inch Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie toy that will be available this fall.
Funko is also releasing new Solo: A Star Wars Story plush toys in their Dorbz, Mystery Minis, Pop! and Wobblers toy lines. Jakks is also releasing three new figures in their Big Figs line, while LEGO is also releasing an Imperial Patrol Battle Pack (99 pieces), a Han Solo landspeeder (345 pieces), a Moloch landspeeder (464 pieces) and an Imperial TIE Fighter (519 pieces).
