    The ESB (and ROTJ) are the best. We get some of the best interior shots of it in the sense you feel a bit crammed in, it's messy, intimate, but functional. Well, mostly functional.
    We also get to see the scenes that make its flying iconic. The astroid field and the Battle of Endor simply define how the Falcon is the best ship in the GFFA.

    I've also fallen in love with the SOLO design. I love how sleek the interior and exterior are. It's familiar, yet different enough in all the right ways for it to be fresh.

    I also love the Solo design and I enjoyed seeing it a wreck after the Kessel Run.

    I too voted for TESB version but I have to admit, I do prefer the look of the 3 landing legs from the ANH version.

    I voted for the SOLO version well the pre Kissel Run one as I love the design plus I love the interior design

    Although seeing the Falcon in action in both TESB & ROTJ are probably by favourite exterior scenes

    The Solo version is so cool!

    Buuuuut.... ultimately, I can't help but choose the TESB/ROTJ version. The classic, just a little souped up.

    Honorary mention to the TFA version while it's still in Plutt's junkyard. I love seeing it sitting there, covered in those almost mummy-like rags.

    Quite so. I certainly like the simplicity of ANH, but the Falcon looks better to me with the additions for the legs. Seems more realistic. (Because realism matters in a space opera! :p)

    It definitely does seem more realistic with the 2 additional legs as they were needed for the full size falcon set for TESB. If you look at the ANH dockingbay 94 photo, the refueling hose is hiding a steel support as the original partial Falcon set was unstable.

    Of course that I'm used to that piece of junk that we see in the CT and ST, and I have special care to the Falcon in that condition.

    But one of the things that I really loved in Solo was how they made the Falcon so beautiful. Voted for MF from Solo.

    I do love the Falcon from SOLO with it's Ralph Mcquarrie inspired exterior design and with Lando's pimped up interior. It was also great seeing the Falcon battered and stripped bare in places after the Kessel run.

    Awesome thread! Its a hard decision for me. Both Solo and ANH have awesome MF(millennium falcon). I put ANH because it is classic and it is so iconic. All the scenes there! Truly amazing! Also, it made the destruction of the death star happen. But Solo looks amazing as well. The Corellian version is cool. The blue is nice and the scenes with it are well made and show the power of the ship and it’s maneuverability. Tough decision

    I was torn between the ANH and TESB versions. I do like the upgrades in TESB but I do prefer the look of the 3 landing legs of the ANH Falcon.

    Lando had way too many capes!

    Same here, not one cape. Maybe I'll get one when I get a YT-1300 freighter.

    Solo. It just looks so much cleaner. And I like a clean ship. Shows one can take care of themselves

    I do like Lando's take on the Falcon, that interior is pristine.

    I think this shows the differences between Han and Lando, Lando claded the old freighter to turn it in to his flashy personal transport, Han stuck with the inconspicuous old and battered look, concentrating on performance and functionality over appearance which was perfect for smuggling.

    Lando wanted a pimped up cruiser while Han wanted a "sleeper", I love both versions!

    This and seeing the Falcon in the rebel base on Hoth are my favourites.
