New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Figures Suggest Kylo May Ditch His Helmet

Force Friday is closing in fast and to celebrate, Hasbro has unveiled its new line of Star Wars: The Last Jedi figures, rounding up all of your favorites from a galaxy far, far away. And some baddies, too.

From Kylo Ren to C-3PO, this merchandise was first spotted by the eagle-eyed folks over at Star Wars News Net, and is designed to offer a closer look at each character and their respective attire. It’s not much, but one possible point of contention is the fact that Adam Driver’s glowering villain is seen here without his helmet on, thereby providing another peek at his facial scar – one that Kylo Ren suffered at the hands of Rey aboard Starkiller Base.

Does this mean The Last Jedi will feature more of Ren without his mask than The Force Awakens? It’s far too soon to tell, and it’s unlikely we’ll find any concrete answers from a Hasbro toy range. Regardless, the new line of Star Wars-themed merch does spotlight a handful of Adam Driver’s co-stars, including Resistance gunner Paige (Rose Tico’s sister), C-3PO, Chewbacca, General Hux, Kylo Ren, Rey, Finn, Rose, a Stormtrooper, Luke Skywalker and Poe Dameron, the best damn pilot in the galaxy.

For those who don’t know, Force Friday is a Star Wars merchandising event that often takes place in the first week of September, when industry giants like Hasbro, Walmart, and even Verizon team up with Disney to help drum up excitement for the latest release – Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in this instance. This year’s edition takes place on September 1st, so if you’re in the market for some Star Wars-themed collectibles, you’d best keep your peepers peeled on all of the major storefronts to catch the latest promotions.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on December 15th. Other projects in the works from that galaxy far, far away include a Han Solo origin story and Episode IX, which is coming to us by way of Jurassic World‘s Colin Trevorrow.
