First Look At 'Episode VIII' Toy Packaging

3 comments

By Ciaran Duggan,

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac all feature on the cover of 'The Last Jedi' toy packaging as fans are treated to a first look at a much changed Rey.

The most striking visual on the toy's cover is the stylistic change of Rey's hair for the upcoming movie.

The hair is no longer tied in a bow and is much longer than fans last saw in 'The Force Awakens.'

In contrast to this, Poe and Finn appear almost identical to the characters we grew to know in 'The Force Awakens' (right down to the outfits that they adorn).


'The Last Jedi' packaging is directly contrasted to the packaging used for 'The Force Awakens' with the use of the iconic image of Kylo Ren. Instead, the heroes have been placed onto the packaging. Perhaps seen as a better marketing ploy, or maybe there is a subliminial meaning attached?

The marketing of the packaging has been disclosed in relation to Star Wars Force Friday II, which comes out on September 1 2017.

What do you make of the packaging? Let us know in the comments below.
