About what I expected. The blast off panels remind me of the Battle Damaged Enterprise-D from ST:Generations Playmates did in 94.

I know some will consider it a spoiler, but I like this Falcon.  You can see how Han just strips off the flashy 'slick' extra plating to make the ship lighter & faster.  I also don't think the front end reveal is a spoiler either, but I know some are gonna bitch about that... ::)

I have zero need for this thing, but I know I'm going to end up with one for my Hasbro Han/Falcon focus collection.   ::)  Hope I can grab one for less than the $99 though...

I don't know how the removable - what do we call it - nose? - is a spoiler for some folks. It's been that way for 40 years. But some people will complain. There was a Kenner concept of the Falcon with this detachable nose/cargo thing:

I wonder if that was in the back of their heads in designing the ship for this movie.

Did you leave out the shot of the nose deliberately, Jeff?

I think it looks pretty cool.  But like the TFA Falcon, this one seems very much scaled down.  Losing all of that interior space, like the shot of the main hold which we saw in the EW article, does takes away from space in the Falcon that dates back to the Kenner version.  Where does the crew go?

You guys suck at not giving out spoilers!   ;D

Honestly, I never thought I would dislike a vehicle more than the TFA Falcon.  Hasbro's response seems to be "Hold my beer."

You misspelled Luke.

Do you even watch the movies, or are you just here for the toys?   ;D

Yes...  I doubt it's a big deal to you guys here, but there is definitely a "THAT'S A SPOILER!" crowd complaining about toy reveals already so I played it safe and just linked to it:

Oh yeah...  Leia's jab was "you're braver than I thought"

Or was that Chewbacca?!

The picture itself doesn't really reveal anything, but the caption certainly takes you down that path.  Discretion is probably warranted in this case.

I assume this scales closer to the POTF2/TFA Nerf Falcon than the BMF?
