Of course, with every new Star Wars movie on the way, there are also new Star Wars merchandise to be released. And with Star Wars: The Last Jedi hitting theaters this Christmas, fans are already excited to see what new toys can be added to their collection.
One of the most beloved Star Wars toys are the products released by LEGO. The playsets for the Star Wars franchise have proven to be so popular, that multiple LEGO video games based on the galaxy far, far away have been released. Star Wars characters even made a hilarious cameo appearance in The LEGO Movie.
New images of minifigures from the upcoming sets for The Last Jedi have leaked online. Two of the figures showcase one of our main heroes of the film and one of the primary antagonists as well.
We see Finn (John Boyega) in his new Resistance outfit. Although he is wearing the same jacket that once originally belonged to Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), instead of the Stormtrooper undershirt and pants, he is now decked in full-Resistance wardrobe similar to Poe’s uniform when we first meet him in The Force Awakens.
We also get a closer look at the minifigure for Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis). This is a character that has been the center of many fans’ theories as to how he factors into the narrative of the Force. Snoke was first introduced in The Force Awakens projected in a gigantic hologram sitting on a throne. Here, we get a closer look at him in his first official minifigure. Although there hasn’t been an official image of him as featured in The Last Jedi, this minifigure can give fans an idea of how he may look in the movie.
Also, two minifigures featuring a First Order shuttle pilot and a BB-9E unit have been revealed.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will arrive in our galaxy on December 15, 2017.
8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See
May the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.
Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.
Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
