Hey guys! Today the final two Solo: A Star Wars Story LEGO sets were revealed, which will be released together with 75215 Cloud Rider Swoop Bikes in August (I believe). These are sets 75217 Imperial Conveyex Transport and 75219 Imperial AT-Hauler, both of which are based on the heist scene from Solo in Vandor.
75219 Imperial AT-HaulerThis set comes with the AT-Hauler seen in Solo. I find it odd that it’s a white color, as I thought the ship in the movie was undeniably light grey. I dunno. Maybe LEGO had inaccurate concept art or maybe my eyes and the LEGO designers’ eyes perceive color differently. Here’s another shot of the set, basically the box art minus the background. It comes with five figures — furcoat Qi’Ra (who doesn’t belong), Val, two helmetless Dryden Enforcers (I like the different face prints but I would have liked them to have their helmets, and they don’t belong in this scene), plus Rio Durant, who has two great new molds for his four arms. His head mold is a bit odd though. The AT-Hauler can switch from flight mode to landing mode by moving the wings up and down. This is accurate. Here is the model in its landed position. Looks a bit like Kylo Ren’s Shuttle if you ask me. Apparently the rumored price for this is $100 US, which I think is absolutely insane. That better not be real.
75217 Imperial Conveyex TransportHere is the other set, the Conveyex. The train in the movie is basically symmetrical from top to bottom with the train track running through the middle. This set only replicates the top half. I think it looks a bit stupid like this, but then again it would’ve been practically impossible for LEGO to do both the top and bottom of the train so ah well. I feel like the box shows how undersized the train is, and I think the minifigures look a bit dumb when standing on top. I wish this set was a much larger one, but oh well, it is what it is. Sorry about the blurry image. Here’s the back of the box, which shows that the rear cargo section can be carried by the AT-Hauler set. The battle is taking place! Four crates of coaxium in the rear section are the target. The Imperials get a pilot seat in the front train car, along with a stud shooting turret at the top. The five minifigures are goggled Chewbacca, goggled Han, two Range Troopers, and the Imperial Conveyex Gunner. I think Han and Chewie look okay, though not amazing. The Range Troopers are fine I guess, glad they got a new helmet mold but I think it’s too oversized, and I wish LEGO would’ve included some sort of fur coat beyond the tiny cloth piece at their neck. A new piece representing their magnetic boots would’ve been great too. The final minifigure looks okay I guess, with a gunmetal grey outfit, a black neck fur cloth, and a Death Star Gunner helmet. Interesting combo.
Anyway, this set will apparently cost $90 USD, which I also think is very expensive. Ah well
