    - Tobias Beckett is the man who pushes Aurra Sing to her seeming death.

    - At the end of the movie Han set for Tatooine to meet a big shot gangster boss.

    - Val mentioned Bossk.

    - Maul with the red lightsaber that looked like the ones Inquisitorius use but sliced in half

    - Vos's luxury liner was Satine's Coronet (??? I'm not sure)

    - Han bluffed to Lando that he would bet his "ship" VCX, making Lando really interested. A few years later Lando encountered an actual VCX, Hera's Ghost.

    Also classic species like Twile'ks and Rodians, can't remember more.

    really liked the easter eggs, didn't seem to forced. I actually think it's the best Disney era SW movie in terms of world building along with Rogue One.

    Two Tubes with Enfys before he joins up with Saw was a great little touch. Plus Warwick Davis as his TPM character

    I didn't see Tag and Bink anywhere, unless someone happened to spot them. So Tag and Bink still are not canon.

    Here are two more:

    Chewbacca's Wookiee friend on Kessel is named Sagwa, played by Attila Vadja.

    The person who calls out Sagwa's name telling them to go with them is Tak. This character was played by Anthony Daniels.

    Dryden Vos mentions Crimson Dawn having a (tenuous?) alliance with another syndicate called the Pykes, who control Kessel. Pykes were a crime syndicate first introduced in The Clone Wars.

    Dryden Vos mentioned wanting to avoid a war between the syndicates at all costs. Foreshadowing a future film story? Not sure.

    Good catch. I thought that might be him, but I didn't stick around for the credits to be sure.

    Qi'ra mentioned Scarif.

    Han speaking Wookiee...I seem to recall the original ANH novelization mentioned than Han could speak to Chewie in his own language.

    Glover pronounced "Han" the same will Billy Dee Williams did in ESB, and Alden pronounced "Falcon" the same way Harrison does.

    Chewie actually tearing someone's arms off. :funny:

    Tobias wearing Lando's disguise from Jabba's palace in ROTJ.

    Han did the move like he was going to punch Lando and then hugged him. Just like when Lando met them on Cloud City on Empire Strikes Back.

    Here's another one. Han Solo didn't cheat and he did win the Falcon "fair and square." So that's one mystery solved. He didn't play the card he took from Lando. He simply kept Lando from being able to play it himself. The only one who was trying to cheat was Lando basically. So Han only tricked Lando out of being able to cheat and kept it a fair fight.

    He also 'shot first' in that final confrontation, but it also clearly pained him to do so, which I think was what Lucas had intended when he messed with the original Greedo scene in the special edition of ANH. Yes, he could take the first shot, but it wasn't in his nature to kill someone in cold blood.

    -Vos offers Han Colo Claw Fish (eggs?) during their final meeting. That fish is the “bigger fish” that grabs the fish chasing the sub in TPM.

    I am 95% sure that the Stormtrooper doing running commentary during the Han/Chewie intro scene ,was Steve Blum. Who did the Stormies on Rebels.

    Qi'Ra says she knows a martial art called Teras Kasi...

    ...which would be this video game.

    The character Vos is weirdly not an Easter Egg related to Quinlan Vos.

    Apparently, the adventures Lando talks about are related to the Lando trilogy of novels.

    Teras Kasi was also mentioned in the visual encyclopedia for The Last Jedi as one of the fighting styles for the Praetorian Guard.

    Right... but I thought for a split second I saw someone on Kessel who kinda resembled Quilan. Was once they had gotten topside in the battle around the Falcon.

    Definitely something to check in a second viewing.

    The way Lando's droid was integrated into the Falcon's systems. Focuses that moment in EMPIRE a bit more when 3P0 has to talk to the Falcon's computer.

    "Vos" might just be a relatively-common surname in the GFFA or something. Like "Antilles" shows up a bit with the Alderaan stuff.

    Also lets not forget the moments (in ESB at least) where the Falcon has these little hiccups that requires a punch on the "dashboard" to get it working again.
    The droid had the same thing as they were leaving for Kessel.

    There's also references in TLJ novelization about the Falcon having 3 distinct personalities when BB8 plugs into it. Curious if L3 is the 3rd.. or if another is to come.
