Background: The Millennium Falcon kit was a Christmas gift to my son, and we have been working on it several hours a day since Christmas day. We have finished bags 1 through 5, and tomorrow we will break open bag 6 and complete the model. If you haven't done one of these before, don't think it's a simple undertaking.
The main deck of the ship has a recognizable prop from each prominent scene in "A New Hope", on the forward port deck one finds the holo chess board where R2 played against Chewie for example. The aft starboard deck has the hover droid that trained Luke on his light sabre.
The aft port deck features a prop which looks like a red coffee cup. It's immediately in front of the air circulation units and situated directly on the deck. It is the only prop in the aft port quadrant of the ship, and conspicuously so; hence my curiosity.
What might this prop be referring to? Or is it related to a scene in another episode?
