Star Wars: Designs for Finn, Snoke and BB-9E droid in The Last Jedi leaked?

Lego mini figures suggest possible appearances of characters

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' is scheduled for release this year around Christmas time. So far, very little information available about the film has been available, except the official teaser trailers and some leaks and rumours. What has mostly remained shrouded in mystery is the look of Supreme leader Snoke and some other characters. Thanks to some leaked images of Star Wars Lego mini figures, the looks of some of the key characters in the film may have been revealed.

Star Wars News Net reported on June 19 that three mini figures from Lego from 'The Last Jedi' film offer a clear hint as to the look of Finn, Snoke and BB-9E. The images were reported on Reddit first.

Finn, played by John Boyega in the movies, is seen more or less in a get-up similar to his appearance in J.J. Abrams's 'The force Awakens.' However, he is given a blaster, which is like Han Solo's but silver in colour.

BB-9E was already revealed previously to be black in colour with red sensor lights, like an evil version of BB-8. BB-9E will be a first order droid. Whether there will be any moment of conflict between BB-8 and BB-9E in 'The Last Jedi' is not known. With BB-9E, in the package can be seen, a regular First Order officer. Perhaps the two will share a special relationship, such as the one shared between Poe Dameron and BB-8.

The third photo is the most interesting because it is a figure that, for the first time, shows how Snoke probably looks in 'The last Jedi.' The dark and mysterious master of Kylo Ren is no longer a shadowy hologram; he is presented as a Lego character. Snoke is seen with his signature facial scars and pale ghostly eyes. He is wearing a gold coloured robe, tucked at the waist by a belt and also wearing, what appears to be a white under-shirt inside. He looks angry.

On April 9, editor-in-chief of Making Star Wars, Jason Ward had revealed that Snoke would be getting an image makeover in 'The Last Jedi.' He said, "Snoke wears a gold silky robe with a very ornate pattern on it in The Last Jedi. In fact, I think you can pretty much see the robe on page 226 of The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. What is also interesting is his slippers are like 'jester shoes' or 'genie slippers.' They're also gold because you have to match if you that far in with the gold robe. I think the robe and shoes are lined in red too so he's stylin'. He has a very 'blood and gold' vibe to him."

It seems Snoke's look is more or less confirmed. Ward had also revealed that Snoke's Mega Destroyer will house the BB-Es, complete with evil-looking glowing red vents on glossy black bodies.

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' directed by Rian Johnson, releases on December 13.
