We're only four days away from Force Friday, an event that will launch a bunch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise in major retail stores like Wal-Mart. Yesterday, we shared some images that revealed toys and a couple of LEGO sets that revealed some characters. Now, thanks to Jedi Temple Archives, we got new photos showing a couple of new alien characters. One of them is a Resistance X-Wing pilot while the other is a character we’ve seen before, but didn’t know the name before Check out the characters here:
The first action figure depicts Sarco Plank, who appears to be some kind of alien scavenger on the planet Jakku. We've seen this character on the set before, in the background of the behind-the-scenes Star Wars: The Force Awakens photo published in Vanity Fair (shown below).
As you can see above, he's wielding some kind of big gun. The second character's name is Asty. He's a Resistance pilot, so he's on the good side, but he's probably just a minor character. Hasbro has a history of making action figures out of insignificant characters with barely any role in the plot.
As Force Friday approaches this week, stay tuned as we reveal more details from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys. The film will arrive in theaters on December 18. You can check out the details of the 18-hour unboxing event here.
