With anticipation mounting for Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, the final installment in the Skywalker Saga, rumors have begun to swirl around what Star Wars fans can expect to see as the epic space opera reaches it epic climax. To celebrate the film and kick off Force Friday, toy manufacturers like Hasbro, Sideshow Collectibles, and LEGO have released tons of new products, each adding to the richness of the Star Wars Universe.
Part of the fun of collecting the products is figuring out how they connect to the plot of the new film, and in what ways they'll be featured. Sometimes a product will contain spoilers, which serves to heighten the excitement and mystery surrounding it, though more often than not the same spoilers can have fans scratching their heads. Below you'll find 10 possible Rise of Skywalker spoilers from Force Friday products.
10 VADER'S RETURN
For Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, Hasbro has released a 12-inch Darth Vader figure, complete with cape and multiple points of articulation. Part of its Hero Series, it is (so far) the only character from either the Prequel or Classic Trilogies that's been released. It can be either purchased by itself, or in a three-pack with Supreme Leader Kylo Ren and a Sith Trooper.
Throughout the latest Star Wars trilogy, Darth Vader has played an ominous role. Even in death, he's guided the actions of Kylo Ren, formerly Ben Solo (his grandson). By releasing a Darth Vader figure, it's very possible that we may be seeing the famous Sith Lord appear in some way to bring the Star Wars Saga to a memorable close.
9 SITH TROOPERS
By now, you may have seen what appeared to be "Red First Order Stormtroopers" on everything from sweatshirts to coffee mugs, but Sideshow Collectibles has released a 1:10 scale Sith Trooper Two-Pack as part of Kotobukiya's ARTFX statue series to give you a better look at these new soldiers.
Not to be confused with the Praetorian Guards that flanked Supreme Leader Snoke's throne, the Sith Trooper was a special division of Stormtrooper named after the ancient order of Dark Side users. They're part of the 105th Battalion in Rise of Skywalker, and created specifically for the film. A new commission by Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, intent on resurrecting the Sith ways?
8 RETURN OF THE KNIGHTS OF REN
In a curious twist, this "Knight of Ren" is getting the retro treatment, as Hasbro releases it as part of its Vintage Collection of 3 3/4-inch action figures. The Knights of Ren infamously appeared in a Force Vision that Rey had when she touched Luke Skywalker's old lightsaber in The Force Awakens, and it appears they'll be returning for Episode IX.
This single Knight of Ren provides one of the most complete looks we've had at a member of their mysterious cohort. Each of the Knights of Ren had a distinct mask, and this figure is no different. It also boasts highly detailed robes, boots, and bracers, as well as an intricate glaive. Who knows what role they'll play in The Rise of Skywalker, or if they'll even be under the command of Kylo Ren.
7 FIRST ORDER TROOPER AND TREAD SPEEDER
If you attended Star Wars Celebration in Chicago this year, you might have gotten a glimpse of the First Order Treadspeeder, a new vehicle being introduced in The Rise of Skywalker. In anticipation of its appearance in the film, Hasbro has released a 5-inch scale version that also comes with a First Order driver.
The First Order Treadspeeder is an alternative patrolling vehicle that allows for traction over unstable terrain, and bypasses some of the issues that typical speeders face. It's used by members of the 709th Legion of First Order troopers on the planet of Batuu as part of the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge series of comics that ties into the Disney theme park.
6 PASAANA SPEEDER CHASE
It seems like Rey is going to find herself once again in the cross-hairs of the First Order with this LEGO Rise of Skywalker: Pasaana Speeder Chase building kit! It includes 373 pieces to build a Transport toy jet and a First Order treadspeeder, as well as three mini-figures and accessories.
The First Order Treadspeeder is a new rugged speeder created for The Rise of Skywalker, and First Order Jet Troopers (so called for their use of jet-packs) are a newly created First Order trooper designation for the film. The hovering transport speeder Rey controls is also a new vehicle never before seen.
5 THE INTRODUCTION OF ZORII BLISS
By the look and sound of it, Han Solo wouldn't have minded sharing a drink with Zorii Bliss at Maz Kanata's tavern. Anticipating her role in The Rise of Skywalker, Hasbro has released its Zorii Bliss 3 3/4 figure as part of its Vintage Collection line of toys.
Zorii Bliss was a frequent patron of the Thieves' Quarter on the planet Kijimi, known for being a cold, remote planet far away from the war between the First Order and the Resistance. Known as a scoundrel and a thief, she was an acquaintance of Poe Dameron, so we expect to see her show up in connection with him in Episode IX.
4 THE INTRODUCTION OF JANNAH
Funko Pop! has joined in on all the fun surrounding Episode IX by unveiling in its latest run of Star Wars inspired Pops a new Rise of Skywalker character - the mysterious Jannah. Although she was revealed this year at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, not much is known about this elusive young woman.
Actress Naomi Ackie, who will portray Jannah in the upcoming film, has said that the original crew (Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, etc) will encounter her on their "epic adventure". She's seen here dressed in battle attire, with a cape to protect herself from harsh elements and an energy bow to defend herself.
3 THE RETURN OF THE Y-WING
Longtime Star Wars fans will be used to seeing Y-wings in the Classic Trilogy, but it appears that the Y-wing will be making a comeback in Episode IX. LEGO has gotten in on the fun of Star Wars space battles with this Rise of Skywalker Resistance Y-wing build, which also comes with 5 mini-figures and accessories.
Since the figurines include a First Order Snowtrooper, it's safe to say this Y-wing will be seeing action over a snowy planet. Perhaps a return to Hoth? It also features Zorii Bliss and Poe Dameron who, according to Star Wars Celebration this year share a mysterious past. Aside from its typical astromech co-pilot, the new droid buddy D-O is also along for the ride!
2 LANDO AND THE FALCON'S RETURN
While not much of a spoiler if you've already seen the trailer for Episode IX, LEGO's release of the Millennium Falcon as a building kit gives Star Wars fans a chance to relive the iconic moment when they saw Lando once again at the controls of the famous Corellian freighter!
With Han Solo's passing, Star Wars fans may see the ship once again return to its former owner, Lando Calrissian. This time around it seems like he has a full crew. The mini-figures include mainstays C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, and Lando, while new members include the little droid D-O, Finn, and Boolio, a new character created for Rise of Skywalker.
1 MORE KNIGHTS OF REN
This collection of Funko Mystery Mini figurines has got Star Wars fans' tongues wagging more than Jabba the Hutt. Out of a total of 12 figurines, one order placed gets you a single figure, but you won't know which figure you're getting until you receive your mystery parcel!
Three out of the twelve figures are members of the Knights of Ren, implying that we'll be seeing much more of their order in Rise of Skywalker. But most fascinating of all is the last figure, which hasn't been confirmed, but could be General Hux. Since Hux has signature red hair, it's also likely that it's Allegiant General Pryde, played by Richard E Grant in Episode IX, and not seen in its trailer.
