Is there anything more Star Wars than getting a cool new trailer for a movie and then immediately finding out which parts of said trailer you can buy in toy form? I’m not sure, but that didn’t stop LEGO from revealing a ton of new Solo: A Star Wars Story LEGO sets last night – and it won’t be long before they’re on shelves.

There’s a ton of new stuff here ranging from small, slightly less wallet-denting sets based on the movie, to big spaceships worthy of adding to your collection, including a new, 1400-piece recreation of the film’s version of the Millennium Falcon. Check them out!

The smallest Solo set is an all-Imperial squad that’s mainly an excuse to pad out your collection of villains mooks – there’s four, including a female “Emigration Officer”, an Imperial Recruitment Officer, and two Patrol Troopers, the new Stormtrooper design briefly seen chasing Han in the first trailer. Only one of those troopers will fit, however, on the included Speeder Bike, so I guess the other trooper will have to just patrol on foot.

Speaking of that chase from the trailer, Han’s swanky Landspeeder is also becoming a set, including oodles of little, hidden storage compartments befitting a smuggler-to-be. The set also includes minifigures of Han and Emilia Clarke’s mysterious new character Qi’ra, as well as an adorable little “Corellian Hound”.

The trailers have shown Han and Qi’ra being chased not just by Imperials, but another speeder as well – turns out, that speeder is owned by a seedy alien named Moloch. As well as Moloch and another Corellian, this speeder comes with another couple of hounds and features a rapid-fire stud shooter to ping in the general direction of any scruffy-looking nerf herders you happen to find.
Imperial TIE Fighter, $99.99. Image: LEGO
Imperial TIE Fighter
If you prefer your LEGO vehicles more space bound, a new version of the classic TIE Fighter is also coming in the Solo wave. While getting a new version of the Imperial’s finest starfighter is always nice, the most interesting part of this set is the minifigures: As well as a pilot for the TIE, it comes with a mud-clad Mimban Stormtrooper, as well as both Han and his new mentor Tobias Beckett (played by Woody Harrelson in the movie). Except, it isn’t the usual Han and Tobias – they’re both in disguise as Imperials.
Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, $269.99. Image: LEGO
Kessel Run Millennium Falcon
Here’s the big one though – a new LEGO Millennium Falcon to go with the fresh lick of paint Lando’s gave the ship before Han got his grubby hands all over it. Clocking in at 1413 pieces, it isn’t quite as absurdly gigantic as LEGO’s recent /”Ultimate Collector Series” Falcon, but still pretty hefty, featuring a detailed interior including the ship’s hyperdrive and even the famous dejarik table to play games at.

A giant spaceship needs a crew to pilot it, and the Falcon is no exception, so it’s a good job it comes with a ton of minifigures too: Alternate versions of Han and Qi’ra, as well as Lando, Chewie, a Kessel droid and – unseen here – a Kessel Security Guard and a DD-BD droid.

LEGO’s line of buildable Star Wars figures is also getting a boost for the movie, in the form of both Han, who comes with a spring-loaded blaster, and a version of the fur-clad Imperial Range Trooper, seen in the latest trailer defending the giant train from Tobias and his crew. The Imperial Range Trooper isn’t currently listed in the Australian LEGO store, but it’s a fair bet to say it’ll be around the same price point as Han.

Finally, there are these two adorable chibi-style figures based on Han and Chewbacca. The Han is very cute – especially the way it recreates his ’70s-tastic hair. But the real star here is Chewbacca, because look at him! So cute. And unlike everything else listed, these figures are available now.
Like what you see? Well, then prepare your wallet: LEGO’s line of Solo sets will all be available from April 13.
