Star Wars The Last Jedi, Teaser Trailer


The Last Jedi Trailer, as debuted at Star Wars Celebration.

Have a watch, then scroll down past the video to see what potential Action Figures the Trailer reveals at this early stage of our countdown to release in December.


The 1st of September, 2017 has been confirmed as Force Friday for the release of product from The Last Jedi. Having now seen the trailer, are there any clues or indications of some of the figures we may see on Force Friday...

Jedi Rey and Luke Skywalker

Luke has been long talked about in the 6" Black Series and Hasbro have said the figure is in the works. Considering the events of The Last Jedi immediately follow The Force Awakens - a Luke release will bridge the two films and has to be one of the first out come September.

We've seen Jedi Rey in the 3.75" range, but not yet in the Black Series 6". I suspect that Jedi Rey wil be one of the headliners for Force Friday

I also wonder if one of these, most probably Rey, may well be unveiled at Celebration by Hasbro and may be packed in commemorative packaging as the SDCC exclusive for 2017


Poe, BB8 and Finn

The images we see of Poe and BB8 see them unchanged from The Force Awakens. Considering Poe as X-Wing pilot is now reasonably hard to find, a re-release of Poe may be a nice touch - either as direct re-release or tweaked to now include a BB8.

For Finn, we just get that head shot in some kind of capsule. We can't really see what outfit he is wearing but stills do show him still wearing Poe's jacket. As one of the three main heroes Finn is fairly certain for a release.


Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and Hux

It is unclear from this glance of Phasma if there are any changes in her armour. If not, she may just get a re-release, but it would be nice to see if Hasbro would have a stab at a metallic sheen armour? Kylo only makes a brief appearance and is unmasked. We'have had plenty of him to date, but a further Last Jedi release is inevitable.

Hux is not seen in the trailer, but was seen in still shots on the Panel. I suspect he will get a cap less and jacket less release at some point - perhaps not immediately.


That Speeder.... and others

With the current focus on vehicles, the speeder featured in the Teaser may be the larger item release for The Force Awakens. It looks small enough to warrant a 6" release, but if not is a shoe in for 3.75"

The other character we saw in stills would be the new Resistance Technician Rose, and of course General Leia Organa. It would be fitting for Leia to get a release, and if Rose is as prominent as made out at the panel then she would be another great female figure to add to the range.
