We are currently 21 days away "Force Friday" on September 4th, which will mark the official release of all merchandise related to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Even so, over the past week or so we have been receiving a mass amount of leaks of toys and other products. Earlier today Ebay listings for four 3.75-inch The Force Awakens action figures; A Kylo Ren, a Finn, a Captain Phasma and a First Order Flametrooper. As of writing this it appears almost all of them have been sold. While these figures do look legitimate, we be cautious about considering them the real thing until they are officially revealed by Lucasfilm. You can check out images of all of them below, as well as the cardbacks for three of them which reveal a never before seen character. This calls for a minor SPOILER WARNING for those wanting to avoid them:
You may notice on the back of the Finn and Flametrooper card there is photo of a previously unseen character, named "Constable Zuvio". You can get a better look at him below:
Update: Even more Episode VII figures have been revealed, this time on Facebook. Shawn Shepherd posted a collection of photos in the group Star Wars: Anything & Everything. He claims he picked up the figures, which we can assume are also 3.75-inch, at his local Walmart which apparently broke the street date(September 4th) and put them on shelves early. You can scroll through the images below which show off, in addition to the figures above, a standard First Order Stormtrooper, Rey, Poe Dameron, Chewbacca, Constable Zuvio and others.
Also included are a Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, in his Cloud City garb from The Empire Strikes Back. We previously heard that an "Episode VII Darth Vader" would be included in this wave, but it's still unclear how this figures will be connected to The Force Awakens, if at all. Could this mean we get a flashback with Vader and Luke in the film, perhaps helping to fill in the backstory for the Lightsaber we see in The Force Awakens? Time will tell.
You may also notice that all of the figures include a special accessory, some of which appear to be armor of some type. Whether that armor is exclusive to the figures or may actually appear in the film is anyone's guess.
Update #2: Our friends at Making Star Wars found another Ebay listing with all 12 figures included. It includes a high quality of images of them, which you can see here:
Keep it here on StarWarsUnderword.com in the lead up to "Force Friday". We will be reporting all the reveals, both official and unofficial.
