For many of you out there, I’m sure you’ve gone to see the new Solo movie (whether you saw it with other people or not). In it, we get a bunch of background on Star Wars‘ most famous smuggler, along with how he got the iconic ship, The Millennium Falcon. Well, back when Lando had it, it was much different looking. And that version will be making its way to X-Wing tabletops. We get a look at it in this preview (note: if you’ve not seen the movie and are one of those “OMG! If I know even more than just the title of the movie, the whole thing is ruined and my life is OVER!” types, I don’t know if there’s any spoilers about the film, but you’ve been possibly warned. Don’t come cryin’ to me).
From the preview:
Long before either of them became affiliated with the Rebel Alliance, both Lando Calrissian and Han Solo made a living by smuggling illicit cargo throughout the Outer Rim. For this reason, Lando’s Millennium Falcon becomes a powerful new option for the Scum and Villainy faction of X-Wing Second Edition.
Within the Lando’s Millennium Falcon Expansion Pack, you’ll find everything you need to add a customized YT-1300 Light Freighter to your squadron, including a beautifully painted ship miniature and an assortment of eight ship cards that reflect the Scum faction’s penchant for risk-taking. But these risks aren’t totally reckless. Any gambler knows the best time to place a bet is when the odds are in your favor, and few are better gamblers than Lando Calrissian. If he’s is at the controls of the Falcon and not stressed, he can gain a stress token to reroll all of his blank results, giving him a much better chance of enhancing an attack or dodging some incoming fire.
