BB-9E : The Last Jedi

A Lego Star Wars : The Last Jedi Lego packaging leak has revealed and a new BB Unit, this one called BB-9E who is meant to be an evil version of BB-8, much like 0-0-0 for C-3PO. It looks like BB-9E is a BB-unit used by the First Order and utilized on one of the order’s many Star Destroyers and this one is assigned to the same Star Destroyer as Supreme Leader Snoke according to the Lego packaging.

The following are some concept Photoshop rendering I’ve created based on the Lego detail.

Technical Specifications

BB-9E was an astromech droid, powered by a selenium drive. It had an internal orbiculate motor which allowed his spherical bodies to roll across a variety of terrain and kept his domed head fixed on top with magnetic casters. Wireless telemetry allowed the two sections of the droid to communicate. The internal gyroscopic propulsion system was self-correcting, and surface sensors on the spherical body allowed BB-9E to travel across uneven environments. Its shell was sealed from dust contamination. He was equipped with compressed liquid cable launchers that could tether and reel the droid in to hard-to-reach spots. BB-9E’s head was composed of a lightweight cranial frame featuring a large, round primary photoreceptor and a smaller articulated holoprojector array. Two transmitter and receiver antennae extended from the top of his head. Data ports were also located at the bottom of the dome-shaped head. He was protected by self-preservation protocols, creating a strong loyalty to the First Order. BB-9E communicated via droid-speak variants. It is unknown if he had any modifications apart the standard BB-unit features.

The Last Jedi Poster Reveals More.

The gorgeous awesome new poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has a symbol not so secretly hidden in it. The awesome design shows Rey holding a lightsaber above her head, with the beam of her saber dividing Luke Skywalker on one side and Kylo Ren on the other. But beyond the obvious implications that can be taken from that image, the poster includes a subtle nod back to the film’s title with symbolism to the Jedi Order.

The poster, which can be seen in full HD below, is also a  callback to some of the art used for the original trilogy. In one of the more memorable posters for Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope, Luke can be seen standing in the middle, wielding his lightsaber in a very King Arthur-like stance. It’s the same kind of pose that Johnson and the design team at Lucasfilm are trying to mirror with Rey. The stark image of a lightsaber shooting up into the sky also bears a certain resemblance to the original teaser poster for Return of the Jedi.

The Last Jedi ‘Ultra High Resolution’ Banners

On a wet Saturday whilst we are all patiently waiting for some new droplet of visual info from Lucasfilm on Star Wars : The Last Jedi, I decided to create some super hi-res web banners based on the ‘official’ visual collateral we already have, but with some added glimmer and the extension of Luke’s/Anakin’s/Vader’s lightsabre which is now in the hands of Rey …keeping it in the family??
