Check out some official images!

First look at Hasbro's new toys for Solo: A Star Wars Story

A new movie is racing toward us from a galaxy far, far away, which means fans will need to clear more shelf space. Here’s EW’s exclusive preview of Hasbro’s Solo: A Star Wars Story collection ahead of New York’s Toy Fair



There’s a new (old) version of a familiar starship emerging from this movie. The Kessel Run Millennium Falcon includes a young Han Solo action figure — along with clues about why the Falcon looks so sleek and different, just a few years before the events of the original Star Wars. (Retail price: $99)



Break-Away Panels

From Hasbro: "Press the button to pretend that the iconic starship kicks in to hyperdrive with lights and sounds. Press the button a second time for accelerated lights and sounds as well as activate the rumble pack vibrations! Push the button a third time to pretend that your ship picks up even more speed and watch the panels pop off before rumbling to the finish line."



Young Han

Here's the 3.75-inch young Han Solo figure included with the ship, sculpted to resemble actor Alden Ehrenreich. We don't yet have a full explanation of what's in that dual cannister he's carrying. Contraband of some sort, no doubt.



Hiding Spots

There's a captain's quarters in the back, along with a storage room, tucked below two other panels. But most interesting to fans is why the nose of the Falcon is narrower and tapered instead of the familiar forked design.



Ralph McQuarrie-inspired look

This "new car" version of the Falcon reflects its ownership (at this point in history) by Lando Calrissian, whose action figure hasn't been revealed yet. The Star Wars Show revealed that the look was inspired by the original trilogy's legendary concept artist Ralph McQuarrie.



Mini-Ship

Slight spoiler here: Are those cannons canon? Sometimes the toys include bonus blasters, but the nost of this toys appears to have weapons that swing out from the front. And the nose clearly pulls out into a separate, smaller ship. That's similar to The Ghost starship from the animated Star Wars: Rebels. But what happens to this section of the falcon in Solo?



Force Link 2.0

With The Last Jedi, Hasbro introduced this device, which generates sounds based on the individual character or vehicle. This Solo version includes another new young Han figure (see next slide) and can generate audio for the figure and the mini-ship that accompany the Falcon. (Retail: $29.99)



Han Solo

This is the Alden Ehrenreich-styled version of young Han Solo that comes with the Force Link 2.0 starter pack. The wristwatch-like speaker creates sounds not only for this toy, but for the other action figures as well.



Qi'ra

Emilia Clarke's mystery woman Qi'ra is another new action figure. This version is the younger version of the character, during her speeder-racing days with Han on the industrial world of Corellia. (Retail for all individual Solo figures is $7.99.)



New Chewbacca

Chewbacca doesn't change much. He's hundreds of years old, and just middle aged for a Wookiee, so the whole Star Wars series plays out as only a small chapter of his life. In Solo, as with this Hasbro toy, he does have a fancier bandolier with an extra shoulder strap.



K-2SO

Kaytoo from Rogue One could technically make an appearance in Solo, given the intersecting chronology, but Hasbro says they're only re-releasing this figure because it now comes enabled with audio tech for the Force Link band.

Some SOLO line Hasbro images have popped up via social media.  They're reportedly from the German Toy Fair.  Not posting here in an attempt to not have Disney take the site down.

Most of the pictures appear to be of the 12" figures.  But there's also a 3.75" figure 2-pack that features Lando Calrissian & a Kessel Guard.

Check out THIS YAKFACE REPORT about vehicles for the SOLO line.  This one seems to be about CLASS B vehicles.  That assortment is reportedly going to include a reissue of the TLJ A-wing fighter, and a Landspeeder from SOLO.

Yakface has posted UPC and DPCI information for the SOLO line "flagship" vehicle.  No doubt, this will be the SOLO version of the Falcon.
