Hot Wheels Toys Give us a Look at the Imperial Arrestor Cruiser as Well as Early Concept Millennium Falcon
Like every other Star Wars movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story will be introducing us to a whole new bunch of ships and cruisers, and Hot Wheels has given us a peek at the upcoming Arrestor Cruiser from the film. What’s also cool is, we get some pictures of some ‘Original Concept’ vehicles as well, and we get looks at the original designs for ships like the Millennium Falcon and Luke’s landspeeder.
What’s interesting is the fact that the Millennium Falcon looked pretty much the same to the Tantive IV before the release of the final film, but like the info on the card suggests, they had to change the design so as not to clash with the show Space 1999 which had a similar-looking ship called The Eagle. You can also check out early concept for a TIE Fighter, an X-Wing, and a Star Destroyer.

Looking at the Arrestor Cruiser, it pretty much looks like an Imperial ship, only outfitted with large satellite dishes. My guess is that they use the Arrestor to navigate the Kessell Run, which looks to be filled with multiple hazards like asteroids and tentacle monsters.
With new droids and aliens, it’s also pretty great that Solo will be giving us a glimpse at some new ships. The great thing about Star Wars is, there’s always something for everyone.
