Click the image above, for much higher resolution version of The Force Awakens international promo art that leaked 2 days ago. It appears that the image originated from the July-December Russian LEGO catalogue, so we can assume that it’s an official release…
Edit: It appears the catalogue was pulled down.
And here are some close-ups with the weapons from the image:
Finn’s blaster rifle already sparked a debate among the fans. Obviously the props department drew some inspiration from the Rebels’ DH-17 blaster pistol from the Original Trilogy.
Also you can see some parallels between Captain Phasma’s rifle and Boba Fett’s infamous EE-3 carbine rifle. Based on what we know on Phasma, my guess is that Gwendoline Christie’s character will be the Boba Fett of the Sequel Trilogy. I won’t be surprised if she never removes the helmet in The Force Awakens, and I have a feeling that she will be a character of few lines.
And of course there’s the parallel between Rey’s staff, Darth Maul’s laghtsaber and the MagnaGuard’s electrostaff:
So tell us what you think. Do you like the new weapons?
