    Sensor dish in the ship's center before Solo's modification of a second gunport would be a cool retrograde design modification, IMHO.

    From what I've seen, the dish will be in the usual location but retracted to point straight up. Also, the upper turret was always there, it is the lower turret that was added. Also, Han upgraded from a single cannon to a quad system in each mount.

    I'm hoping that Lando points out the retractable dish 'for flying in tight spots' and Han replies that 'no one flies that tight'. Obviously Han breaks the mechanism at some point before ANH, but then again he didn't need it.

    Lifesize Falcon will be the same as the one seen in TLJ with modifications?

    Radically different. I would presume they will revert to the ANH landing gear, different cannon(s), extra cargo pod, working sensor dish and a white and blue colour scheme. Inside they have replaced all the worn, dirty and damaged panels, etc. with factory fresh versions.

    Changing the subject a teensy bit, do you think we'll see some interesting mining gear on Kessel?

    The 'Range Trooper' appears to be standing on rail tracks on the box art of the Lego buildable figure. So as long as the Range Trooper is from Solo and the guy is on Kessel then perhaps we will see GFFA-style trains?

    one of the pods seemed either too big or too small to be a tie bomber...

    Yeah, not a bomber. Also it seems to have a red cockpit viewport.

    Was that stark white, clean hallway shot meant to be the Falcon? It looks very very close.

    It shall be retconned to "yes", I guess. Depends on how earlier we are seeing the Falcon here.

    The mood of the star destroyer emerging from the dark into view and its tie fighters deploying is just the way the empire likes it. striking fear into rebel scum. I thought that shot was awesome.

    Will we see the spice mines of kessel? Was that robot a worker in the spice mines of kessel where threepio was afraid of being sent to?

    Han wasnt a very good smuggler if he couldnt upkeep his ship. Or he was a very very very busy smuggler with no time to clean.

    Does anyone think the look should at least be the equivalent of episode 4 film? i mean in terms of the camera lens. But mines are pretty dark places and so is space.

    Oh was it....can you point to the thread or page as I looked and only found the discussion regarding the blue colour scheme from MSW a few pages back. Nothing on that new image from the above link. Thanks!

    That image came out quite a while back and there was some discussion initially as to whether it was fake or not. All aspects of it have been discussed quite a bit here and there and it would be too much effort on my part to search out all those discussions.
