Solo: A Star Wars Movie (trailer spoilers)

Post by Big Mac » Mon Feb 05, 2018 9:28 pm

There are two trailers for the new Solo movie up on YouTube: Can anyone see anything that might be useful in a tabletop game set in the era before A New Hope?

The trailers are awesome!

It will be interesting to see how this movie connects to Rogue One and Rebels.


As to tabletop stuff, I see a few things:

1) Giant tentacle space monster
2) New vehicle?
3) New Droid
4) Some new aliens.

There's some sort of new TIE also. It has two cylinders between the vertical panels, but they're different sizes.

I wondered if that droid was supposed to be BLX-5. (If it is, I hope they change the name from "Bollux".)

According to the IMDB cast list, it's L3-37.

Thanks for the confirmation on that. I didn't think to check IMDB.

I am wondering if there is any connection between this droid and Lobot?

Correct.

I could see them taking parts of the droid and implanting it into a human though. If they wanted to include some kind of Lobot origin story.

I would have thought you would need to wait for a Lando Carlrissian movie to see Lobot.

*I* think the tentacle beast is The Kessel. And "The Kessel Run" is how far you go before it lets you get away. The shorter the Run, the better off you are.

Sure, the tentacle beast is big enough to have mines on it.
