NEW Hasbro Listing Shows the Name of the New Resistance Fighters on Crait and More

Another Hasbro toy listing has lead us to a name for the Resistance fighters tearing up the planet surface in the first teaser for The Last Jedi. Continue on to check it out, but just a heads up, spoilers revolve around the fighter’s name and a character piloting one of them.





Thanks to a post by reddit user krennic77, we’ve been pointed towards a listing by There is no confirmation from Lucasfilm or Hasbro that these are official or confirmed to be released, but the box and images appear to be legit. Here they are:



The Resistance fighters on Crait are called Ski Speeders, and as you can see Poe Dameron will be using one of them. This appears to confirm our theory in our The Last Jedi behind the scenes reel breakdown piece, you can go back to read that here.

Here is the description of the toys:

Resistance Ski Speeder vehicle features a detachable right wing that can be blasted off for an awesome battle effect, and projectile-firing capacities, so when kids load the included projectiles into the vehicle, they can fire into Star Wars fun!


What do you think of the name? Ski Speeder. It reminds us of “Sky Hopper” in terms of the name itself, and makes sense as they appear to have ski-like structures used to tear up the planet surface. Does this mean Poe’s X-Wing is destroyed in that blast shown in the teaser? What do you think it all means? Sound off in the comments below and be sure to head to the Cantina!

    Hmm Weird

    Can’t wait to find out why that ski is dragging in the soil.

    • July 21, 2017 at 6:08 pm

      If Crait is a mining planet, the ski could be being used to gather material from the salt-flats.

      • July 22, 2017 at 1:57 pm

        Yeah but why would have that engaged while fighting walkers? Also why would you put blasters on a mining ship?

        • July 22, 2017 at 3:54 pm

          My speculation combined with rumor:

          Ski Speeders weren’t originally designed for combat. They are surface skimming vehicles designed for various non-combat duties, and were used on this planet for mining-related work, such as towing and delivering equipment and supplies. The Resistance techs modified them with canons.

          My further guess: these are not “new” vehicle designs. They are antiquated vehicles from the OT era, but are reliable and still in good working order.

        • July 23, 2017 at 5:57 am

          Even if the ship is meant mostly for mining, it may still come across situations where the pilot would have a need to defend himself or herself.

  • July 21, 2017 at 5:46 pm

    It looks similar in design to a B-Wing to me…the pilot pod on one side, weapons and engine in a central enclosure, wing extending out with more blasters on it.

    • July 21, 2017 at 9:08 pm

      Yeah, I think the similarities to the B-Wing are pretty apparent – almost overwhelming. Personally, I always thought the B-Wing looked cool as hell whereas this just looks like a cheap knockoff. The B-Wing had an elegant look to it, but to me this “Ski Speeder” looks kinda clumsy. Nowhere near as cool. We’ve seen from the teaser and the BTS stuff that we are going to see A-Wings again (which I also love) in the TLJ, why oh why couldn’t we have the classic B-Wing as well (or perhaps an updated version of it)? Instead we get this thing? Not feeling it so far.

      • July 22, 2017 at 12:48 am

        The resistance bombers appear to the be evolution of the B-wing

  • July 21, 2017 at 5:57 pm

    So the point of this ship is what exactly? …to kick up the red dirt so that the ground troops can’t see anything? hmmmmm…

    • July 21, 2017 at 8:07 pm

      The point is to make a cool looking scene 🙂

    • July 21, 2017 at 8:08 pm

      there was a (probably fake) spoiler a while ago saying the red dirt is super dense and when dumped on the walkers would destroy them. I hope that’s not it because I imagine it might come off as a bit daft.

      • July 21, 2017 at 9:52 pm

        That sounds terrible. Flammable might be passable, so the entire plain goes up in flames once ignited.

  • July 21, 2017 at 6:20 pm

    Captain Han Dameron

  • July 21, 2017 at 6:42 pm

    Fake. Where’s the NERF projectile?

  • July 21, 2017 at 7:20 pm

    I personally never liked that Poe had a drastically different colored X-Wing than the rest, it was too Star Wars Rebel-y for me. It getting destroyed in TLJ is a plus for me.

  • July 21, 2017 at 8:05 pm

    The packaging looks better than the more recent lot. More reminiscent of the Saga Legends packaging. The cockpit looks pretty small though, so I would bet that Poe doesn’t fit in it very well being as on his TFA X-wing toy you can’t close the cockpit fully with him inside it, and even on the expensive AT-ACT the damn driver won’t sit down without damaging the figure.

  • July 21, 2017 at 8:42 pm

    Not particularly crazy about the design.

    • July 22, 2017 at 12:17 am

      It’s interesting in that it tries to merge designs of the Prequel and OT eras. I wonder if it’s not supposed to be a new vehicle in the Sequel era, but an old vehicle from the OT that the Resistance pull out to use.

      • July 24, 2017 at 3:00 pm

        Interesting. Isn’t Crait supposed to be some old OT/Rebellion era base that they went back to? It could be that they are using what they have available, based on the heavy losses we see them take. That would also possibly explain why they dont seem like they are in the best of shape.

  • July 21, 2017 at 10:42 pm

    This ship is growing on me. I like the open cockpit.

  • July 22, 2017 at 1:57 am

    Other than directed by the plot, I’d have thought that the StoryGroup / Conceptual Artists would have given some specific thought to the logic and the “raison d’etre” for the ship : we know it’s a mining world for the red mineral, uncharted and/or far-flung, and used to be important to the rebel alliance…. so perhaps these craft are in effect converted diggers and harvesters, and, as per the trailer, the tearing up of the ground is intrinsic to the defence-attack against the AT-ATs ? As others here have said, perhaps it’s a visibility trick (ie, masking their approach), or this *mineral* itself can be used aggressively ? The dust gets into the joints, or it’s flammable, or… ?

    • July 22, 2017 at 4:01 am

      I didn’t know you sat in on those meetings. There is still a lot we don’t know yet.

      • July 23, 2017 at 2:36 am

        Half of what I said was based on what RJ has revealed, half of what I said was conjecture :o)

  • July 22, 2017 at 2:58 am

    It looks really cool. I can see why Rian Johnson went with that as call me crazy, it reminds me of those speeder bikes he showcased in Looper(Seriously, check that movie out. There’s a reason why he was picked for episode eight). Now, for granted; I do believe we are getting gorilla walkers. My hope is that we do not get tow cables so as the ESB comparisons will be at a minimum. And I mean in sequences, not necessarily darker tone, atmosphere and character driven narrative. Those are great to take from.

    If anything the blasting wings could be like a secondary system as a means to combat them. At least, I hope. I’d hate for this thing to just be a means to sell new toys. And this isn’t anything new. ATC, Obi-wan’s Jedi Star-fighter had an amazing alternative mode where the wings detached, revealing more canons.

    A shame that wasn’t showcased in the movie. Though, the sequence with him chasing Slave one and the mines sound effect is amazing. Still, I am looking forward to seeing this thing in action. Especially, if Poe is involved. Please, focus more on him, movie.

  • July 22, 2017 at 5:41 am

    Wow, they are really trying to make up for the fact that the B-Wing got practically no screentime in ROTJ, aren’t they? That’s two new ships that follow this awkward design (Leia’s transport from Force Awakens is the other one.)

    • July 22, 2017 at 12:31 pm

      It is odd that the B-Wing form factor is being reiterated so many times in the sequel trilogy. Isn’t anybody asking, hey, isn’t this the same thing again?
