The first official images of the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon LEGO set have been revealed for Solo: A Star Wars Story. After a worryingly long draught, the promotional push for the latest Lucasfilm movie has finally begun. The back-to-back teasers for the Han Solo film gave audiences their first look at the characters of the film and offered a taste of what the movie would be about. And thankfully, that was only the beginning as EW's Solo coverage revealed a number of tidbits about the movie while also providing more images of the cast.
Along with the trailers and images for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the past couple of weeks have been packed with content. We recently saw a new Solo poster uniting the various characters and teasing the adventure film that's promising to provide insight into one of cinema's most lovable rogues. Star Wars has always dabbled in various genres, but Solo will be the first to take on a heist-style film. A big piece of the caper plot also looks to revolve around the infamous Kessel Run, which a new set of toys further highlights.
THR have the first look at the official Kessel Run Millennium Falcon LEGO set for Solo: A Star Wars story. Comprised of 1,414 pieces and boasting a price tag of $169.99, the set will offer not only the famous ship but minifigures for Han, Chewbacca, Lando, Qi'ra, and a Kessel droid. Check them out in the gallery below:

The figures don't offer many new details, but it is interesting to see Qi'ra in her less-than-lofty garb. She wears a number of looks in the trailers and images we've seen, but both the recent poster and this figure show she'll be getting her hands dirty in the film. There may even be more to Qi'ra in Solo than it seems.
On top of the minifigs, we also get a great look at the very different Millennium Falcon that will appear in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Along with providing more backstory for Han, Lando, and Chewy, Solo will also shine a light on one of pop culture's most famous ships. And by prominently featuring the Kessel Run, Solo will showcase the biggest moment in the Falcon's history—until the Death Star Run at least.
This isn't the first time we've seen these toys, of course, as the Solo LEGO set images leaked last month. Seeing the official images, however, provides prospective buyers with a much better idea of what will be in store for them later this year. And with Solo: A Star Wars Story right around the corner, expect a lot more toy reveals soon.
