    Some new descriptions for six new LEGO Star Wars: Solo products have surfaced, along with a couple of low-quality screencaps of what the new products look like.







    The five product names, revealed via r/LEGOStarWars, are as follows:
    • 75207 Imperial Patrol Battle Pack
    • 75209 Han Solo Landspeeder
    • 75210 Landspeeder
    • 75211 Imperial TIE Fighter
    • 75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon
    Nothing unexpected there, but yes, we are getting another Millennium Falcon set, with confirmation (not that we needed it) of the Kessel Run! There's also a leaked image of a 'Range Trooper' minifigure which will be included in the latest film - an interesting take on what looks like a nice bridge between the Clone Trooper and Stormtrooper armor:

    UPDATE 1: There's also an image of what appears to be a masked alien bounty hunter:

    UPDATE 2: And here's an image of the buildable Han Solo figure:

    Furthermore, images of these new sets are making their way online, revealing our first glimpses of some of the new characters and ships:

    UPDATE 3!



    And now, The Brick Show has helped clear things up with the character names and updated version of the set names, the most important of which are for Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson's characters -- Qi'Ra and Tobias Beckett, respectively.
    • 75209 – Han Solo’s Speeder [Minifigures: Han Solo, Qi’Ra, Corellian Hound]
    • 75210 – Moloch’s Speeder [Minifigures: Moloch, Rebolt, Corellian Hounds(2)]
    • 75211 – Imperial TIE Fighter [Minifigures: Mimban Stormtrooper, Imperial Pilot, Han Solo (Imperial Disquise), Tobias Beckett (Imperial Disquise)]
    • 75212 – Kessel Run Millennium Falcon [Minifigures: Qi’Ra, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Quay Tolsite, Kessel Operations Droid, DD-BD]
    • 75207 – Imperial Patrol Battle Pack [Minifigures: Imperial Officer, Death Star Trooper (Female), Stormtroopers (2)]


    Another little detail that has me excited is that, with the presence of Corellian Hounds, it's likely that we'll finally get to see Corellia on the big screen. Also neat is that there are apparently planet-specific Stormtroopers -- specifically for Mimban, a Legends planet first introduced in the novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye that's been confirmed to exist in the canon as of The Clone Wars. While I'll have to reserve my judgment until I actually see what the movie looks like, little things like these get me more interested as a fan.

    <script async src='//embed.redditmedia.com/widgets/platform.js' charset='UTF-8']</script>




    At this point, it's looking like the Imperial Patrol Battle Pack listed in the above albums has nothing to do with Solo, but it's among the other Star Wars LEGO that they're releasing in the near future. Also worth noting is that Thandie Newton's character is presumably in another set.





    This continues our countdown to Solo: A Star Wars Story and it will be interesting to see more and more products rolling out over the next few months. What do you think of the new sets and the Range Trooper? What about the character names? Let us know in the comments below!

    Unfortunetly, I already have the Millenium Falcon from The Force Awakens, so I'll probably have to skip this one. Those minifigures seem great though. Maybe it's just me, but there's a minifigure that looks like Zuckuss in the MF. That new TIE Fighter is a must-have, it looks great! While I'm kinda getting sick of constantly getting new trooper varients, those range troopers looks awesome and come in a neat battle pack. Those two small speeder sets look very interesting too. I wonder what planet they're at and what those small animals are.

    To quote a wise man named Sheev, this was a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

    Have you seen the new one? It has different markings and an entirely different front.

    The pair of Landspeeders and the Imperial Patrol look like pretty good Lego interpretations of the three craft featured in the set photographs we were poring over back in May last year (minus the 'wheels' on the prop vehicles of course :D).

    Genuinely interested in the Kessel Run Falcon too... obvious Solo mentioned he'd "made a lot of special modifications" himself, so I wonder if the freighter was modded for the Kessel Run or the front end is the original YT design and Solo 'deconstructed' it to the twin loading claw shape as an improvement from the Kessel format? #shipgeek

    Yeah, but it's still a little too similar for me and I just don't have the space for another one. I also just don't like the new design too much. Those minifigs makes it tempting though...

    I'm most intrigued by that white creature in the speeder set. Also wondering what planet they're on--looks industrial.

    According to some rumours a large chunk of the film's plot will take place on Corellia, so this may be it.

    Looking forward to seeing the infamous Kessel Run - *AND* hopefully, if the rumors about Vader/Emperor showing up are true - especially Vader, we'll get to see finally why Vader stopped Boba Fett from killing Chewie in ESB!

    That looks cool. Can't wait to see what the range troopers look like in the actual film.

    Looks like @Pawek_13 was right on the money with this one.
    I always saw this as a clever retcon - he realized that Chewie was carrying C-3PO, and remembering that he built the droid, he didn't want to see it destroyed. Why else would he have let Chewbacca rebuild him while he was in prison?

    The third minifigure from the TIE Fighter set (which appears to be Han Solo in disguise) reminds me a lot of Agent Kallus from Star Wars Rebels. Maybe we'll be seeing the ISB making their on-screen debut?

    It’s possible I guess, but that speeder bike definitely looks like the craft from the Fawley set photos and the Range Trooper costume fits with the outfit of the (then helmetless) rider seen in other glimpses from that location.


    I’ve only just noticed that aside from the flat-pack dish, the Falcon is only sporting a single barrel cannon on the Kessel Run design... more Solo modifications??
