The Falcon never looked pitted or scroed ot dirty to me, it was smaller ship than say the Enterprise but not messy.

One of the charms of the Millennium Falcon has always been that it looks like it's been through a supernova and out the other side and has scorches, carbon scoring and grime plastered all over its outer hull. Just like a real-life interstellar spacecraft probably would after a few years prowling around in deep space. The ship has character.
There are obvious places where she seems to have taken direct blaster hits.

I'm really hoping we see the Falcon with a lot of new paneling and details given how much time has passed. Perhaps there could even be a whole different design of radar dish, or an extra gun turret underneath or something.

LOL, it would be awesome if we first see it as a museum piece. After all, it was instrumental in destroying 2 Death Stars.

I can see Han arguing with someone about trying to take the Falcon out of mothballs so he can go and do something heroic.

"Han, it belongs in a museum!"

Looking pretty good, although he's definitely one scraggly Jedi Master. Lol

Going to throw this out there but... Luke Skywalker is now a Sith. Just saying..
There's a few semi credible reports that hint at Luke having changed in a bad way. While dark side or Sith are not used it's not outside the realm of possibility especially if you I think that Lucas original plans had Luke turning dark and his sister rescuing him.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

While I still hope the story rumors aren't true, I could see that look working for Luke as an Obi-Wan style hermit living off by himself on some backwater planet in the middle of nowhere. It could also work for the wise old Jedi Master training a new generation of Jedi.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

And Luke in Episode VII will be close to Obi-Wan's age at the time of A New Hope. Ben was 60 or 61 in the original film and Luke will be a middle-aged Jedi Master in his mid-to-late fifties depending on the final timeline of events that are established for the new movie. The new grizzled look and Luke's age conform with how Lucas depicted Obi-Wan at the start of the Original Trilogy.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

This interview with Kevin Smith about his episode 7 visit seems remarkable similar to the stand-up talk posted upthread. However he did add that he saw something else.. something better than the Falcon.. that he can't reveal.. but it had him amazed.

The only thing I don't like about the story rumors is the suggestion that we won't even see Luke until late in the movie, after Han and the rest finally track him down.

I'm hoping we at least get glimpses of what he's up to before then, and that he at least plays a major role once they do find him. Because regardless of his age, it's still freakin Luke Skywalker, the central hero of the OT. And I want to see him have more than just a glorified cameo after all these years.
