The other day the LEGO Group released photos of the new Kessel Run Millennium Falcon from the upcoming SOLO: A Star Wars Movie. Didn’t we just do a Millennium Falcon?
Yes, if it seems familiar, this new Falcon set (75212) comes hot on the heels of the huge UCS version that LEGO still can’t keep in stores or available online. Even with the enormous price tag.
Anyway, this new Falcon is more affordable at $169 US and is actually entirely different. The new/old Falcon features it’s original blue and white paint job and is lacking the familiar front “mandibles” – or at least there’s something between them. Generally assumptions are that it’s a cargo area, or Han did some major mods/damage before the events of A New Hope.
Interestingly LEGO is holding back on 2 additional minifigures to prevent spoilers. That’s new.
