For good luck Han Solo hung a set of gold dice in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. In order to experience that same happiness, you can soon hang them on your rearview mirror.
Han carried the dice with him from childhood, "for good luck". After he won the Millennium Falcon "fair and square" from Lando Calrissian, he hung up the stones in the cockpit. Years later, the dice became Ben Solo's favorite children's toys, or Kylo Ren.
In A New Hope viewers could catch the first glimpse of the golden dice in the cockpit of Han and Chewbacca. Then two 'normal' stones with dots indicating the amount, gold colored and a chain.
For The Force Awakens, the stones were re-created, but they could not be seen in the picture. For The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story we saw the stones for the first time up close. In The Last Jedi we see how the stones are transferred from Luke to Leia after Han's death, although they were force projections. In Solo we see the lucky charms of Han in 'action'.
This time no longer as 'normal' dice with a color, but 'real' dice with symbols from the Star Wars universe.
In your own 'cockpit'
Soon it will be possible to hang the dice yourself in your cockpit (or car, we do not all have such luxury). The replicas that have been inspected by Lucasfilm are now available at Zavvi.
Delivered in a small storage box with imprint of the logo of Solo and a closing bag, the dice came to me recently. The first reason to grab the car was seized, to attach this gain to the rearview mirror as quickly as possible. A ride on the highway is more fun if you feel like you're making the Kessel Run ... minus the danger to your own life.
The replicas are made of metal. As a result, they feel and view them as 'the real deal', and not as cheap plastic trash, for example. The actually beautiful stones are therefore perfect to exhibit in your own collection, or to hang them on your mirror and always feel like Han on the go.
Thanks to Zavvi for making a set of dice available for this article. Order your own copy here!
