Several new “Star Wars : The Force Awakens” images have hit the net, just as upcoming comic book ‘C-3P0 #1’ is announced. The one shot will explain how the droid ends up with a red arm in the December 18 release.
In addition, some minor spoilers are out there for the film’s array of new characters – and all leaks can be sourced back to ‘Force Friday’ merchandise.
Firstly, a description of ‘Finn’ from the Halloween costume, says :
“Sometimes, heroes come from the unlikeliest of places. The Galactic Empire has been dead for decades, but evil never really dies. With villains rising to take the Empire’s place, heroes must rise to oppose them.
After becoming stranded by himself in the deserts of Jakku, and meeting up with a girl named Rey, a Stormtrooper named Finn has joined the side of the Resistance. He began his adventure as a part of the New Order, but now he’s one of the few people that can stop them.
With a new look, Finn is ready for a new mission. Since trading in his Stormtrooper armor for a new set of gear, Finn’s outfit might not be flashy, but it’s all that a hero needs to succeed.”
Rey’s costume description hints that the young heroine might in fact be a Jedi.
“The mission to take down the First Order is underway! After invading the Starkiller Base, one member of the Resistance has split from her group and found herself in a massive room full of First Order soldiers.
Completely surrounded by Stormtroopers with blasters and Knights of Ren with lightsabers, she seems to be totally outnumbered. Unfortunately for her enemies, though, they’ve made a big mistake: it’s not about the strength of the weapon, but the strength of the warrior that wields it.”
In addition, we’ve learnt that General Hux’s Starkiller Base is more powerful than both Death Stars :
“An ice planet converted into a stronghold of the First Order and armed with a fiercely destructive new weapon capable of destroying entire star systems.”
