Escape Pods

It's commonly agreed that the Millennium Falcon has escape pods. But where are the located and how do they work? After much research, I added two pods to my model, each with the capacity to hold three minifigs. Each escape pod is powered by a bungee cord and launches through the hatches in the top of the hull. With the hatches open the pod launches about 12 inches into the air when the release pin is pulled.
