LEGO builders can choose to recreate the original version of the ship from ‘star wars: episode V – the empire strikes back,’ or from a more recent film, ‘star wars: the force awakens.’ the falcon will contain minifigures from both the original trilogy and star wars: the force awakens. han solo, chewbacca, princess leia and C-3PO will round out the original crew while rey, finn, BB-8 and han will represent the sequel.
