The YT-1300, new Haynes Owner’s Workshop Manual

The Millennium Falcon is undoubtedly an iconic image of sci-fi. However, when we think of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, we always imagine it to look like it did in the original Star Wars trilogy.

Not until the recent movies has it been suggested that the YT-1300 modified Corellian freighter could look very different, depending on what you, the pilot, specifically wanted.

For example, in The Force Awakens, the Falcon has an updated satellite dish, and in Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lando Calrissian changed not only the color but the shape of the ship too.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. In a brand new Haynes Owner’s Workshop Manual for the Millennium Falcon authors and artists Ryder Windham, Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas have created the ultimate guide to the YT-1300 ship and its most famous configuration, the Millennium Falcon. One of the most interesting features in the book is an image of alternate customizations and configurations YT-1300 customers could make if they purchased the ship.

The whole Haynes Owners’ Workshop Manual concept came from the incredibly useful range of books that were produced in the UK during the 70s and 80s for every single make and model of car available.

Other cool books in the reimagined series include the Death Star (also by Windham, Reiff and Trevas), the USS Enterprise and the Klingon Bird of Prey.

There’s also an edition that actually looks specifically at the Millennium Falcon (also by Windham, Reiff and Trevas) rather than the YT-1300 as an openly customizable freighter.

Pre-order on Amazon, it’ll cost around $26.99 or £12.99.
