Star Wars: The Last Jedi Merchandise – Snoke’s Throne Room, Porg Plushies, New Kylo Ren Image, & More.

As Force Friday inches closer, more bits of merchandise and promotional images appear. While we’ve covered some of what’s new in our latest Weekly Social Buzz piece, some of that is worth exploring in detail as we talk more about the merchandise that’s hit thus far.



BB-8 Playset


There’s a new playset in town with Snoke and a Praetorian Guard, and just like the old days, it’s one that folds into a character when it’s not in use:





A closer look at the playset interior is below:



But what’s also interesting is that there’s a “deluxe” version of this package that comes equipped with the “Force Link” peripheral – one which emphasizes our heroes in action on Snoke’s Star Destroyer:



Knowing toy packaging, this probably doesn’t represent a scenario that actually happens in the movie, but it does give us a bit of an idea of what the interior of the Star Destroyer looks like. But in any case, it’s worth noting that there appears to be a torture chair – something that focused fans noticed in the BTS reel when the mysterious red room with Snoke was shown (see title image).


It’s worth noting though that if the action scene on the package is actually representative of a sequence from the film, this is a pretty big nugget concerning the plot of the movie. Could this be a glimpse into the movie’s third act? Will Rey come to Finn’s rescue this time around and confront Snoke aboard his destroyer? Where are Luke and Kylo Ren? Perhaps as the plot converges toward the end of the film, Rey will fight with the Resistance against Snoke while Luke goes after Kylo. The possibilities are endless at the moment, but we will know more soon enough.



Funko POP! Toys


By now, you’ve probably seen the initial lineup of Funko’s toys for The Last Jedi:



As we can see here, Funko doesn’t seem intent on rehashing old POP! figures for their first The Last Jedi wave (even the BB-8 seen above is new), so all their new toys involve new costumes instead of the costumes we last saw these characters in in TLJ. So the major players that are absent from this list are Leia, “DJ”, Holdo, Hux, and Phasma, which we can presume are going to be part of the second wave, will be exclusives, or both. I can certainly imagine that First Order Rose, Pilot Finn, the other Praetorian Guards, and Luke in one of his other costumes will be saved for a later date as well.


Here’s the gallery of what most of them look like from the front (note the red gem necklace that Luke has):







Here’s another look at LEGO’s First Order Walker:





We can also get an idea of what Finn’s “battle-damaged” jacket is going to look like:




Porg & Praetorian Guard Plushies





Now that I have your attention, here’s a Praetorian Guard plushie (and some more Porgs):




New Kylo Ren Image


Nothing interesting to say about this other than that Phasma and one of the Praetorian Guards are there, too:




Black Series Toys


Some close-ups of the Black Series 6-inch toys ahead:


What interesting about this image is that Luke has a weapon hook here. While the figure doesn’t come with a lightsaber – as much as we all want it to – it does hint at the possibility of Luke using some sort of weapon in the movie. Probably not with this particular outfit, though…





And now, the other stuff. Here’s a good look at the new Poe Dameron helmet:



The cover of a new DK book:



And the Hot Wheels toys giving us new looks at the movie’s vehicles:



There’s also these schematics:








Don’t know quite what those are supposed to come from.


Last and least, we’ve got some drink toppers with five characters – Rey, the Judiciary Stormtrooper, the Elite Praetorian Guard, BB-8, and BB-9E.



…And that’s all for now! Plenty of information to go around, in any case – but Force Friday is still a few weeks away, so there will likely be new images that get out in the days ahead. We’ll be sure to cover them at SWNN. (Special thanks to the people at r/StarWarsLeaks for some of these pictures.)

    That throne room is pretty cool,reminds me of the cardboard Death Star from back in the 70’s and Snoke is tall ,hottoys that plz.

    • August 15, 2017 at 1:13 am

      $199 for something that recalls the cardboard playset from the 1970’s.

      • August 15, 2017 at 2:52 pm

        “reminds”, not “replicates”.

  • August 14, 2017 at 8:27 pm

    So, Snoke is giant after all. He isn’t human.

    • August 15, 2017 at 12:10 am

      Ithought this was common knowledge ever since they said that a practical 7-9 foot snoke puppet was created. Some people still think he is going to be Yoda height, and the Holo Transmission was so large because he was compensating.

      But yeah… why creat an 8 foot animatronic puppet if he isn’t at least that tall? lol

      • August 15, 2017 at 6:59 am

        In the EW interview, Rian Johnson said Snoke is all CG performance capture in TLJ. There was a “maquette… on set for lighting reference,” not an animatronic puppet.

        • August 16, 2017 at 2:32 am

          oh cool, i had not read that, must be new info. Regardless, if that had been known for the last 9 months too, i would have still thought he would be that tall. No need to do an 8 foot Marquette for lighting and the other actors to reference if he isn’t that tall. thanks for the update

  • August 14, 2017 at 9:05 pm

    Why BB-8 for a bad guy base? Why not that new BB-9E?

    • August 15, 2017 at 1:14 am

      It would make sense, yes, but Hasbro probably calculates that children would be more into this playset in a BB-8 form factor.

      Logically also, this playset should fold out to be the Resistance base. But again Hasbro probably thinks Snoke’s HQ would sell better. Hence the mismatch between the good guys and bad guys.

  • August 14, 2017 at 10:14 pm

    The “Gem” around Luke’s neck is easily the most interesting tidbit here. It has to be the crystal from Vader’s saber.

    • August 15, 2017 at 12:08 am

      I thought Pablo already debunked this, saying that the Saber had the same fate as the Emperor and was destroyed in the Death Star II?

      However… it could be some ancient sith crystal. Or…

      It could be one he made….. and it is a reminder. perhaps after his Nephew slaughtered all the padawans and destroyed everything he had worked for, and once in isolation, his anger and rage took him down a dark path, and now he sits in the middle of the Force…. a true balance.

      • August 15, 2017 at 12:16 am

        Oh heck, I missed that if Pablo said that, makes sense.

        I’m flirting with the idea Luke may channel the dark side a bit. They seem to be leaning toward a new sort of balance and understanding of how the force works. Maybe true mastery is using the dark side but not falling to it. Didn’t Mace Windu use the dark side in his Vapaad style? What if Luke isn’t using a saber cuz when he tried to make a new one the crystal turned red or his green one was corrupted when the Jedi academy fell? Oh Snap.

        “I created Vaapad to answer my weakness: it channels my own darkness into a weapon of the light.” – Mace Windu

        • August 15, 2017 at 2:51 pm

          Not gonna happen. A Jedi doesn’t use the dark side and grey Jedi are not gonna happen.

          Vaapad was a vapid idea, long dead now. Thank God.

          • August 15, 2017 at 4:33 pm

            What is your take on the red crystal around Luke’s neck? Where do you think it comes from?

          • August 15, 2017 at 8:03 pm

            I have no idea. It might be purely decorative and not at all addressed in the movie.

          • August 16, 2017 at 12:53 am

            We shall see. I’d say Luke wearing a red Kyber Crystal (if that’s what it is) around his neck would be pretty interesting.

          • August 16, 2017 at 11:37 pm


          • August 16, 2017 at 2:39 am

            The Bendu…. Ahsoka….. The fact that Luke has a red Kyber Crystal around his neck and says “It’s time for the Jedi to End”….. The talk of ‘Balance’ throughout the entire series…

            Don’t count out Grey Jedi, or whatever name is given to those not fully aligned to one side.

          • August 16, 2017 at 11:37 pm

            Bendu isn’t a Jedi and after she leaves the Order, Ashoka literally isn’t a Jedi.

            I am counting them out because Pablo Hidalgo said they don’t exist. If a person is being “gray” then they aren’t a Jedi. There can be a person using both, but they won’t be a Jedi.

          • August 18, 2017 at 1:50 am

            Ah, i get what you mean. Yeah, may not be named a Jedi, but obviously we will see more into the ‘Gray’ area of force users. Maybe Luke even busts out some force lightning lol. that would be interesting.

      • August 15, 2017 at 12:20 am

        Holy crap, it’s the crystal from his green saber corrupted by the dark side. In the new cannon doesn’t it state that the Sith corrupt a crystal to turn it red instead of the old cannon that said they were synthetic? He wears it around his neck as a gauge of his darkness and refuses to use his saber till the crystal turns green again.

      • August 15, 2017 at 12:23 am

        I will remember your name, I think you nailed it. It’s his crystal, probably from his green saber. Why has no one mentioned this? Luke has no saber yet wears a red Kyber Crystal around his neck….. this should be a thread in the Cantina.

        • August 16, 2017 at 2:35 am

          LOL! just an idea i had, but it would be so cool. I just don’t see him wearing a random dude’s crystal, unless it was truly important. Hell.. maybe we will see him bust out a red saber in a fight…. 😉

    • August 15, 2017 at 2:50 pm

      “has to be”
      What is this the basis for this? Vader’s saber was lost on the Death Star.

      • August 15, 2017 at 4:32 pm

        Read the rest of this thread. We know about Vader’s saber. Where do you think the red crystal around Luke’s neck comes from?

        • August 15, 2017 at 8:04 pm

          I read it. It’s based on nothing at all. No idea. It’s probably not even important.

  • August 15, 2017 at 1:03 am

    My God that walker is… massive.

  • August 15, 2017 at 1:16 am

    So I wonder if Hasbro will make a Heavy Assault Walker, or if they’ve decided to pass on this after the Rogue One AT-ACT, since they weren’t able to produce those at a decent retail price.

  • August 15, 2017 at 1:42 am

    I can’t help but get the feeling that the Heavy Assault Walker design never would have gotten past George Lucas. Not feeling it at all.

    Does noone else miss the ‘uniqueness’ to every new Star Wars episode? Always completely different, off-the-wall designs and creatures. Only a very few holdovers from episode to episode.

  • August 15, 2017 at 1:08 pm

    Why is this looking more and more like Empire?

  • August 15, 2017 at 3:32 pm

    Snoke seems to be channeling Hugh Hefner.

  • August 15, 2017 at 7:20 pm

    Cool.lots of new merchandise and I’m happy we finally get a Jedi master Luke. Snoke black seriess

  • August 15, 2017 at 8:38 pm

    I think i want that sar destoryer playset as a diorama display for figures lol
