The Last Jedi : Teaser Posters

The Last Jedi Character Posters have just been released, and it was great to see Daisy Ridley and John Boyega using their own social media channels to release theirs, and Star Wars.com doing the honours of releasing Carrie Fisher’s, but what’s what’s so nice is the ‘red’ Sith tone of these new The Last Jedi character posters…?

Star Wars : The Last Jedi Tabletop Pinball

Another day and another retailer has let slip some more Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise, this time it’s Walmart and the Star Wars VIII The Last Jedi Tabletop Pinball, with major spoilers all over it!!!

On closer inspection, this new packaging has revealed a load of new information, the Aurebesh on it is mostly what you’d expect from a pinball game, like “RESISTANCE VICTORY”  but someone on the Forum’s found the interesting bit of note to the right next to Kylo Ren, as it says “FIRST ORDER TIE SILENCER“. Is this the first naming of Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter?

THE PORGS OF AHCH-TO

We also get our first ever official look at Porgs of Ahch-To, Artoo appears to be surrounded by these Porgs,  the bird-like creatures that reportedly inhabit the island on Ahch-To where Luke lives.

LUKE’s CRASHED X-WING

The above section looks like an X-Wing underwater. You can clearly see a cockpit, an engine, and the wings…is it Luke’s that he crash landed on Ahch-To? Will we see Luke make the Force Ghost of Yoda proud and raise an X-Wing out of the water?

THE ELITE PRAETORIAN GUARD

We also get to see three really good renders of the Elite Praetorian Guard, with what looks like the ghostly figure Snoke in the background.

The full background also reveals Captain Phasma and the new “executioner” Stormtrooper

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 back in May 2017 and DON’T represent the final version of BB-9E

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.
