    [​IMG] New Solo Russian preview image found on reddit?



    Now that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally out, the focus will naturally shift to Solo. Take a look inside to get a glimpse at some merchandise leaks and learn when we might get our first look at the movie.







    First up, I'd like to point out the only visual leak that we have - Thandie Newton's appearance in the film, as recreated by LEGO (and a returning character from a new set that suggests there could be some kind of cameo):



    [embed]https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsLeaks/comments/7l6h70/thandie_newtons_character_from_solo_lego_minifig/[/embed]



    [embed]https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsLeaks/comments/7lfjwr/boba_fett_in_solo_a_star_wars_story/[/embed]





    The image of Thandie Newton's LEGO-ified character is decidedly not an Imperial outfit, like it was suggested by one of the photos shared by Ron Howard on Twitter. Meanwhile, there are apparently a few subtle details separating Boba Fett's appearance here from how he's appeared previously, which may or may not indicate that he'll get a cameo in Solo.



    Next up is some listings regarding the merchandise. First, there are a list of 11 Funko POP! bobbleheads for Solo, along with one for The Last Jedi:



    [embed]https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsLeaks/comments/7lm82v/solo_a_star_wars_story_funko_pops_spotted_in/[/embed]





    Meanwhile, Brickfanatics have just seen this image indicating when the next set of LEGO are going to arrive:



    [​IMG]



    There will be five LEGO sets released in time for the movie along with two buildable figures - and it's been suggested that the two sets related to The Phantom Menace and Revenge Of The Sith teased in the image above, are unrelated to the Solo line. Curiously, there's a discrepancy between the given 'sell date' on the Funko toys and the date that the LEGO arrive. It could be that the store gets stocked with Solo Funko toys two weeks ahead of the actual toy event and that they aren't actually sold until then.



    One more thing worth noting is that a finding from Yakface indicates that at least half of the next wave of Black Series toys will be based on Solo, with one toy in particular implying that a certain character may be making another appearance:

    So yeah, there's a chance that Tarkin might be in the movie, in addition to (maybe) Boba Fett. It's difficult to tell with the way the list is written - and I can't wait to see whatever this 'Range Trooper' is. So far, these merchandise lists seem to indicate that a good portion of the content that will hit on the next big marketing event will be related to previous films as opposed to just focusing on Solo, which to me indicates that there's more reused content in this film than there has been for the others. It also suggests that Disney has more modest financial expectations for the film. (If it doesn't make $1B globally but otherwise makes a lot of cash, that's okay.)



    In addition, Cinelinx author Jordan Maison has recently been saying that we should expect the first wave of visual content to arrive very, very soon:



    [embed]https://twitter.com/JordanMaison/status/943870666243264512[/embed]



    [embed]https://twitter.com/JordanMaison/status/943871211586678784[/embed]





    At this point, I think that Lucasfilm is about ready to kick the ad campaign for this movie into overdrive. Marketing on this movie was always going to be weird with the way Lucasfilm promotes their movies (as, so far, we have not seen a preview for next year's Star Wars film attached to this year's Star Wars film), as it would have been with The Last Jedi had that released in May of this year as originally planned.



    Lastly, there's a little detail in the next issue of Empire that I feel is worth discussing. While the article doesn't really tell us anything we don't already know, it does hint that the golden dice that appear in the Millennium Falcon's cockpit will play a role in the movie.



    [embed]https://imgur.com/a/eKlf5[/embed]





    If that's the case, then this would serve as a nice bit of connective tissue between Solo and The Last Jedi, where the dice were symbolically used to reunite Han with Luke and Leia at the end. In any case, it won't be long before we learn a lot more about this movie, so stay tuned.







    UPDATE!



    Reddit also has another image from Solo posted on their site. Here it is:



    [​IMG]



    The art looks really great and too good to be fan made. Some sites got responds from Disney reps that they don't know about this image, but I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it as fake. Actually other sites got takedown notices for it. As we said on Twitter in time we will see...



    https://twitter.com/StarWarsNewsNet/status/946123597558571008





    And thanks to our reader KyloRen here's the actual source of the leak: Licensing Russia. Definitely seems legit.

    Cool. I guess once you've accepted another actor is playing "Han" (anything else is pointless), Solo is a movie to really look forward to! (han)(chewbacca)(falcon)(lando)

    Taking a page from Lando's book, I'll bet that we'll be seeing a trailer within the next week. Maybe that'll be enough to get people more excited?

    I honestly really like that promo pic. I was very worried that Alden wouldn't look right as Han. But with the hair, jacket and slight stubble I think he looks really good. Lando's looks good but the hair looks a bit weird but it could just be the angle of the picture. Now that we know they looks good as Lando and Han the next most important thing is ion they can sound like them. Not much to get off of Emilia Clarke there. Falcon looks cool with the Revenge of the Sith colors. Now the worst part, Chewie looks terrible. They never should have recasted Peter Mayhew, the new guy barely looks like Chewbacca.

    Wow, check out the pre-modded Falcon!

    Just when I've nearly convinced myself I had enough Star Wars ships in my collection =)

    Oh, well, I'll probably make the room for this one.

    Just noticed: this older Cantina icon seems closer to this Solo design...

    (falcon 2)

    The original, though, is still unbeatable...

    I am not in love with the design, I think Chewie's head is too tilted to look natural. Overall though, more excited about this than I thought I would be.

    Nice image. :) Can't wait for the first official reveals. I'm keeping my expectations low for Solo (not saying I expect it to be bad). Give me a fun adventure that broadens the SW universe in an interesting way and I'm cool.

    Maybe he's just tilting his head to fit into the picture?

    I like what I see. I'm really liking Han's jacket, it reminds me of the jackets from the original Battlestar Galactica.

    Kinda looks like they added Solo's (Ford's) chin scar, doesn't it? Is it possible they may drop a trailer New Years Eve or New Years Day?

    I really dig that version of the Falcon. Han truly did do some "special modifications" lol.

    I'm 100% that is what they were going for. I just think it looks a little off.

    Do you just mean his eyes? What other part of Chewbacca can you differentiate between the two actors?

    Alden's Han is actually not that bad. He looks very similar to the younger Han that we saw in the OT. I think the movie will be underrated and will surprise a lot of people.
