The countdown to Star Wars: The Last Jedi is rapidly ticking down, leaving fans and collectors frothing at the mouth to learn more about what items they’ll be able to snag when Force Friday finally arrives.
The event will see the release of tons of new merchandise in promotion of the newest film in the Star Wars saga, and while Lucasfilm prefers their affiliates keep a closed lid on the products until they announce them. Unfortunately for them, photos of the playsets from LEGO have been hitting the web.
The latest image is of a portion of the new minifigure checklist featuring most of the characters that will be figured in the constructible playsets.
The new sets will feature new takes on some of the awesome characters established in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, including updated versions of Rey, Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, and General Hux. Supreme Leader Snoke also makes his first appearance, as well as the First Order BB units.
Unfortunately we’ve still yet to see characters like Finn, Rose, and even the highly anticipated Luke Skywalker. Hopefully those characters are coming in sets from the first wave — and if not, maybe we’ll see them when more LEGO Star Wars products launch later next year.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit theaters on December 15.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the second film in the new Star Wars sequel trilogy that began with Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015. The film will deal with Luke training Rey to become a, and possibly the last, Jedi. Meanwhile, the Resistance, including Poe Dameron and First Order defector Finn, continues to fight against the First Order, led by General Hux, while Supreme Leader Snoke and his Dark Side follower Kylo Ren continue their mysterious plot.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita
