There’s a new LEGO leak going around that confirms a lot of little things. I’m not going to post the images here because LEGO are just going to ask me to remove them immediately. (Edit: the posts originally showed up here on Instagram). The images can be seen on Reddit (thanks to reader Jeremy for the link).
First up here’s what was confirmed:
- The “gorilla” walkers we reported on are in fact called “First Order Heavy Assault Walkers” like we were hearing back in March. The head is exactly as we depicted as well. You can see them in the teaser on the horizon of the Crait shot.
- The Heavy Assault Walker drivers have markings not unlike the Executioner Stormtroopers.
- Snoke wears a gold robe in The Last Jedi from April. Note: the Star Destroyer he’s packaged with is not the “Mega Destroyer” we’ve discussed in the past.
- There are “evil” BB units which we reported last year and again recently.
What’s is also interesting is:
- Poe is named “Captain Poe Dameron” now.
- Vice Admiral Holdo has a grey outfit different from her formal wear.
- There is a gunner for the resistance named “Paige” who is Rose’s sister. She does what you would expect and is a gunner in the ball turrets of the Resistance Bombers. You can actually see her in in the turret externally in the film if they use the shot I saw.
- I saw a resistance BB unit a while back and was told his name was “Bobo” on set. I’m not sure if that will be his name officially or not.
- I saw a First Order officer named “Captain Peavy.” He was sort of older looking and snobbish.
One thing to note is that the “fantasy” situations shown on these boxes and the characters included in the play sets do not actually mean very much. Sometimes they do but there’s a few things in these sets that I don’t think actually go together other than adding play value for children.
Can this movie come out already? I’m dying here! I’m not sure I am going to be able to handle the excitement of The Last Jedi and Han Solo just five months apart but I’m willing to try!
