One-of-a-Kind Black Series Figure

The Last Jedi Trailer & Speculation

During this week's Monday Night Football, the first official trailer finally debuted. Prior to the halftime release, revealed the official poster for the eighth episode of the Saga. What stands out immediately is Luke's position in the montage that is typically reserved for Darth Vader.

Maz will be getting her own release and will include her rocketeer looking backpack that will be featured in The Last Jedi. A new character by the name of C'Ai Threnalli (who appears to be similar or related to The Force Awakens' Ello Atsy) features a [...]
