SPOILER WARNING: The following article may contain spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in theaters December 15.
A Reddit user has spotted packaging for a new Star Wars: The Last Jedi LEGO set — poised for release on Force Friday this Fall — that reveals quite the different look for the ominous Supreme Leader Snoke.
The packaging for the First Order Star Destroyer, the biggest set of the bunch, reveals that the set includes six mini-figures: First Order Officer, First Order Shuttle Pilot, First Order Stormtrooper, First Order Stormtrooper Sergeant, BB-9E and, most notably, Supreme Leader Snoke.
Marking the first time Snoke has been included in Star Wars merchandising, the mini-figure is notable because it looks absolutely nothing like the Snoke that appeared via hologram in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The figure is the same size as the others, indicating that the character we saw in Force Awakens was simply enlarged — therefore, not a giant. He also appears to have a caucasian skin tone with some scaring on the face — looking more like a human — as opposed to his grey, ghostly appearance in The Force Awakens. The character also sports a regal robe.
Could this indicate a change of look for Snoke in The Last Jedi?
