More Info on The Raddus Plus New The Last Jedi Details from the Star Wars Databank Page and More

Yesterday we shared with you some details on Snokes’s new Mega-Class Star Destroyer and the new cool looking Mon Calamari cruiser, named The Raddus, via Sphero’s BB-8 app. Now more information on The Raddus surfaced via the same app. Also Star Wars.com updated their Databank page with some new entries from The Last Jedi.

 

 

Here’s what more info on the Raddus a Reddit user found and shared on their forums (click on the images for bigger version):

 

 

This makes the ship twice as big as the last Mon Calamari cruiser that we saw in Return of the Jedi.

 

The app also shows some older droids of the Resistance. Meet BB-2 and BB-4 (via reddit).

 

 

 

In other news. StarWars.com has updated the Star Wars Databank page with some new info on characters and places from The Last Jedi. Check out some of the latest editions:

 

CRAIT

Now uninhabited, Crait is a mineral world dusted by a layer of white salt, reflecting the planet’s sunlight. It was once the site of a Rebel Alliance outpost, and has become a haven for the fleeing Resistance forces.

 

Crait

 

RESISTANCE SKI-SPEEDER

An older design pre-dating the Rebel Alliance, these low-altitude, high power ski speeders use a stabilizer strut to keep balance when zipping across alien terrain.

 

RESISTANCE BOMBER

Now reinforced with new combat craft, the Resistance fleet dispatches hardy bombers into battle with the First Order fleet. Escorted by swift starfighters, these munitions-laden carrier ships drop powerful proton bombs onto their Star Destroyer targets.

 

ELITE PRAETORIAN GUARD

As the Supreme Leader of the First Order, Snoke stood atop an evil regime that mirrored many of the dark traditions of the Galactic Empire. As a striking example, Snoke was flanked by crimson-clad guardians, loyal protectors encased in the ornate armor ready to defend the Supreme Leader from any threat.

 

FIRST ORDER STORMTROOPER EXECUTIONER

The First Order can only operate effectively with the absolute loyalty of its followers. Should any soldier be found guilty of treason, it is up to this special branch of Stormtrooper to dispense final justice.

 

BB-9E

The First Order benefits from the latest technology across all its activities. This includes having dark, gleaming BB astromech units of their own that keep their starships and machinery operational.

 

BB-Unit

 

BB-UNIT

Rolling about the hangar bays of outposts and capital ships, or snug in the astromech sockets of X-wing fighters, BB units work tirelessly to keep the weapons and vessels of the Resistance in top combat condition.

 

ROSE

Part of the support crew that keeps the Resistance starfighters flying, Rose has hated the First Order since she was a child. Now able to fight back against the enemy, Rose keeps her focus on her mission.

And last but not least, here’s a very cool collection of 64 promo images, cards, posters and stickers from The Last Jedi:

    That gun on Crait is amazing. I love that they called the cruiser The Raddus.

      I dig the design but it doesn’t look very real to me… wish they had constructed an actual model

        It does look a little fake. They should have called ‘The Raddus’ the ‘Porkins.’

    Couldn’t quite work out why Chewie looks ‘off’. Then I realised, it’s the eyes, the eyes are wrong.
    So much of Chewie’s character is in the eyes and of course these aren’t Mayhews.

      I would agree. I think it’s just going to be one of those things. Mayhew has been phased out. But I think you nailed it. Eyes are, after all, the first thing someone looks at.

    The x-wing really is in the sea!?

      Guessing that’s Luke’s. He really is bad at landing on unfamiliar planets!
      This is why Luke never flew Y-wings, none of the other rebels wanted to fly co-pilot.
      Heck look what happened to Dak. If the shot from the walker didn’t kill him, Luke’s landing would have.

    Pretty sad that they couldn’t have OTHER alien races fight alongside the Rebels/Resistance as prominently as the Mon Calimari. Bankrupt in the idea department, I guess.

    I LOVE that that ship is called The Raddus!!

    More dark side please.

    Description of the Raddus reminds me of the Battlestar Galactica in the SciFi series – phased out, stripped down for retirement, etc. Then forced back into action. Between Force Friday and the new and more frequent releases of information, I’m getting excited all over again!

      We kinda knew that Poe had a wider exhaust port than the other guys, didn’t we?

    Rose’s outfit says “Ground Logistics Division landing officer”.

    Finally — I’ve been waiting 40 years for Star Wars to pay proper homage to Admiral Raddus.

      yeh, was just thinking it should’ve been the Ackbar

        Basically the same character — it would’ve made more sense for him to have been in Rogue One as opposed to his do-nothing role in TFA.

    those new BB units scare me.

      Why? In the OT there were many R2 variants. I would be like in the real world if Toyota made one car model in one color and that’s it. There are thousands of other BB units in the galaxy, possibly millions.

        I didn’t say there shouldn’t be different variants of BBs, just that these particular designs shown here look creepy…

    I called it — I thought that the Ski Speeder looked like an old ship originally made before the Sequel Trilogy era that the Resistance repurposes and weaponizes for battle against the FO. 🙂

    Maybe it’s just me but I’d like to see the resistance use ships from the spoils of war. Modified old school empire Star Destroyers launching resistance Tie or x wing fighters would be cool.

      That would be awesome.

    Loving the look of the Raddus. Favorite new vehicle/tech so far

    I wonder if these two megaships are what gave rise to the rumors that each side would have a superweapon in TFA, or perhaps they were repurposed after that direction was discarded.

    That Crait building looks like Howl’s Moving Castle.

    Mon Calamari ships have put on a few pounds…

    “Uninhabited and a haven for fleeingg Resistance troops” make Crait a lot like Hoth albeit with a different environment. If the First Order shows up at Crait and strikes the Resistance base as the rumors indicate, the comparisons to ESB will be inevitable.
