LEGO reveals Kessel Run Millennium Falcon out this April

LEGO reveals Kessel Run Millennium Falcon out this April

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the set will have 1,414 pieces, cost $169.99, and will include two figures-on top of Han, Lando, Chewbacca, Qi'ra, and a Kessel droid-that Lego is keeping under wraps for now. He's the star and creator of FX's Atlanta, he's Miles Morales' uncle, he helped director Ryan Coogler with script edits for Black Panther and he is the coolest black man in Star Wars, Lando Calrissian.

It's entirely possible that the legendary Kessel run, which we'll see in full-effect in the movie, may have something to do with the Falcon's rough appearance - which seems to have many obstacles and dangers through its path.

All four of these figures will be available from retailers and online at HasbroToyShop.com this spring.

"Outsmart the villainous overseers and escape the Kessel Mines aboard the incredible Millennium Falcon!" the product description reads.

Solo: A Star Wars Story features the most iconic character in the Star Wars universe.

The $99 ship lights up and plays sounds and even has breakaway panels for when you "enter" hyperspace.

"She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid". The front part even contained a smaller ship.

Noted Star Wars super-fan Glover once said a Lando action figure was his first toy. We would have killed to have information like this about the movie a month ago, now we're getting it in toy form. "One of the things [Lawrence Kasdan] and I had talked about was the Falcon should always reflect the personality of its captain".

Qi'ra and Chewie also are getting their own figures (each $7.99) to add to the set.

You can view the full-sized photos of the set over at io9. Fly into our comments below and let us know.
