Leaked minifigs from Lego’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi (opens in new tab) line may have just revealed a major clue of Snoke’s origins, plus a look at BB-8’s evil brother, BB-9. Because it’s not a Star Wars movie without some cool spoileriffic tie-in Lego figures.
Let’s take a look at Snoke first (via StarWarsNewsNet (opens in new tab)). The First Order minifig head honcho looks as scarred as ever but – what’s this – he’s wearing some nifty-looking robes that look suspiciously like something a Jedi might wear… A clue as to his origins, perhaps? A handful of Jedi survived Order 66. Just sayin’. Or is Snoke just really into the latest trends? I hear Jedi robes are in this season.

Finn, looking as shocked as ever (opens in new tab), is next. There isn’t a great deal new to see here following on from Star Wars: The Force Awakens (opens in new tab), but it’s cool to see his figure so well-detailed. His jacket has more pockets than you can shake a lightsaber at.
I’ve left the most menacing ‘til last. This First Order pilot has brought a baddie buddy along for the ride: BB-9E. Yes, that’s pretty much an evil version of BB-8 and, yes, that’s one of the coolest Star Wars droids I’ve ever seen. I wonder if we’ll see any more versions of the BB droids in the future?
