Really hope not. The day toy designs start leaking is the day we need to commit to a no spoilers thread.

Isn't this the no spoilers thread? Ha, if you consider action figures to be "spoilers," you probably shouldn't even be on the internet for the next few months.

Historically, Lucas gave away HUGE spoilers with toy releases. "Here's the Qui Gon dies at the hands of Darth Maul, who then gets cut in half bt Obi Wan playset!"

On a fashion note, that jacket Boyega is wearing looks pretty spiffy.. I might have to snag me one of those.

They gave it away on the soundtrack.

So that's like the new trailer park, or converting shipping containers to houses?

From the article:

quote:
Princess Leia (Fisher) has come into possession of the lightsaber once possessed by her father, Darth Vader, and later lost by Luke (Hamill) when Vader separated him from his arm during that "join me" duel in The Empire Strikes Back.
Guess that's confirmed then. Hope they explain who comes across the saber, and how. Had to have been in Cloud City.

And from the Kylo Ren article.

quote:
Remember how we eventually learned that "Darth" is not a first name, but a kind of title? It appears the surname "Ren" is something similar.

"He is a character who came to the name Kylo Ren when he joined a group called the Knights of Ren," Abrams says. But that's as far as the writer-director will go. What are the Knights of Ren? You're going to have to wait until Dec. 18 to find out.
Interesting.

Who or what is the chrome trooper?

If spoilerish, say so and don't answer

You know...if you put an "S" in front of Kylo, you get a very interesting combination.

Yeah which is why everyone thought the picture of the orange person in the trailer handing the light saber to supposedly Leia was Ahsoka.

Google says that the german word "ren" translates to reindeer. I do give you an A+ for effort though.

Is that Domhnall Gleeson??? I'm pretty sure from the panels they confirmed this is his character, but man that looks almost nothing like him.

And as for the Knights of Ren thing... I like it! Looks like they really are creating a familiar yet very different universe for us here. I'm anxiously awaiting the release of that book that will bridge ROTJ and Ep VII ("Star Wars: Aftermath" - Sept. 4th). Hopefully there will be something about these Knights and other goodies in there.

whatever sort of animal that is is wearing the head of the early model scout walker as armor, and that in and of itself is so tremendously awesome.

EW says more articles to come later today, including Harrison Ford's first day on set.

In the photo of the gal and the dude running with the storm trooper behind them getting ready to fire, my first thought was I bet those clowns still can't hit the broad side of a basketball back board from 3 feet away, let alone a running target from ten feet away.

Because some people apparently consider Luke's actual, physical appearance in the movie a spoiler, I'll only link to this, but the first a spy photo of Hamill in character for some kind of promotional shoot has just leaked...
