Thanks to an unnamed Facebook user we now have a look at some leaked Han Solo LEGO sets. It looks like our question is answered and we will be getting the younger original Millennium Falcon. There is bright blue pieces through out, but the nose is the biggest change. Instead of the duel tip that we are used to, the original features one large one. Do we find out how it’s split in the movie? There is one other thing about the set that stands out. The set is titled, “Kessel Run,” hinting that we will finally get to see Han Solo’s most talked about adventure come to life, and we’ll know exactly how many parsecs it took him to complete it. I️ always get in trouble with LEGO so check out the pics while you can. (more…)
A leaked picture from Lego floating around the internet looks to be revealing the full title for the upcoming Han Solo movie. While the backstage production drama is known, there hasn’t been a whole lot of information regarding the actual movie itself. At least now fans have a good idea what the title will be.
When LEGO makes an exclusive for an event, it’s kind of a big deal. Most of their SDCC and other exclusives fetch multiple times their purchase price on the secondary market. This set looks to be no exception. Based on the classic scene in A New Hope, Detention Block Rescue features Han Solo and Luke Skywalker disguised as Stormtroopers, attempting the daring rescue in the prison ward of the Death Star.
The set contains 220 pieces and will retail for $40, however it can only be obtained if you’re attending Star Wars Celebration and are selected to purchase via lottery.
There are limited quantities available, so LEGO will be highly selective with the lottery. (more…)
