We have a cool look at some more concept art from Solo: A Star Wars Story, this time featuring the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon. Click through for the full gallery, as well as a cool animated gif showing off a detailed look inside of the Falcon.
Check out this video by WIRED on YouTube. It’s about two Star Wars fans who build their full-size Millennium Falcon Cockpit in a garage. With lights and sounds. Isn’t this something we would all like to have?

The Toy Run Podcast Facebook page has started a pretty interesting discussion about how collectors view LEGO versus Hasbro. The discussion is so good that I think it warrants bringing this out of social media and to the Star Wars fan site community where it belongs. Here are the thoughts and questions paraphrased:
LEGO collectors went crazy for the UCS Millennium Falcon. It sold out within a day or two and no one balked at the price. Likewise, there aren’t too many complaints about its size or the space it takes up. The only complaints seem to be that it’s sold out and there are still people who want to purchase it.
Then you take the Hasbro Star Wars action figure crowd of collectors. Hasbro finally gives us a HUGE FO Special Forces TIE Fighter for $169 in The Black Series 6″ line and it pretty much bombs at retail. It didn’t even sell out 2 years later (!) at $50 online this past Black Friday.
Why is a Lego collector willing to pay $800+ (and is happy about it) while a Hasbro Star Wars action figure collector doesn’t want to spend $170 for a big vehicle? It’s perplexing.
In our comments, please leave your own thoughts about this.
LEGO has officially release images of their UCS (Ultimate Collectors Series) Millennium Falcon. It’s coming October 2017. Also, if you sign up for LEGO VIP Program (which is free), you’ll be able to order this beauty starting early on September 14th! You can sign up here.
I can’t help but post all these deals. I find myself constantly searching as all the retailers clear out the old to make room for the new. Walmart.com has two Air Hog drones on a huge sale. They have the Millennium Falcon for $99 marked down from a whopping $299, the Star Destroyer which is a mere $22., and the X-wing for $26.
Why hold onto your investments when you can flip them for this kind of green? While you’re waiting for Force Friday II (and all that “glorious” 5POA stuff), how about plopping down your saved hard-earned cash on a big Millennium Falcon instead? This flawless vehicle is only $852.65 each on eBay and this seller has five of them! Special thanks to JTA moderator Sjefke for making us shudder with this auction.
The Air Hogs Millennium Falcon remote control drone is at a remarkably low price! $44,87 down from $205 and this thing is HUGE (in my best Presidential impersonation)! I got to play around with one of these things and the controls are excellent and it is a blast. If you’ve been holding out on this one, this seems like a great time to pull the trigger. Special Thanks to Craig for the tip!
