Rumors, set leaks, and merchandising websites have all seemingly pointed to one major plot development for Kylo Ren in the upcoming Star Wars film.
Not that rumor has been confirmed by a product listing on Barnes and Noble by none other than Funko, indicating that a deluxe POP! Vinyl promoting Star Wars: The Last Jedi is on the way.
Adam Driver’s character Kylo Ren will indeed have his own TIE Fighter in Rian Johnson’s installment in the Star Wars saga, bringing the former Ben Solo even closer to idolizing his evil grandpa Darth Vader.
The listing was first spotted on Reddit by user ahcahttan who linked to both the main Barnes and Noble storefront and the mobile version of the site. The product pages did not have a photo or a description, but the title and URLs clearly indicated that it wasn’t a “command shuttle,” but a special TIE Fighter. The link is still live, so you can view for yourself here.
A different toy site previously listed some Hot Wheels products for The Last Jedi that reveal the new TIE Fighter’s design, but it was only speculation that the new ship would actually belong to the leader of the Knights of Ren. This listing confirms Kylo will indeed get a ship and its likely to be that which was previously revealed.
Rumors have been flying around regarding the circumstances of how and why Kylo receives this new TIE Fighter, but we can only speculate for now until the movie is released in theaters.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to debut in theaters on December 15. Are you excited for the latest adventure in the Skywalker Saga of movies? Let us know with your vote in the Anticipation Rankings below!
