The names and appearance of two new characters in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” have been revealed in a leaked image. The picture shows a Lego toy set of the franchise that is yet to be unveiled by the producers officially.
The image first surfaced on FBTB and was removed after a takedown request. But it can still be seen at Joblo, in which the new characters and the ships they may be seen with in the movie are revealed.
The new characters are a Kanjiklub gang member and Tasu Leech. The gang member is wearing a helmet along with an eye patch and is seen carrying a rifle. Leech is seen wearing black and appears to be carrying a blaster. The two toys are a part of the Millennium Falcon set and may be associated with the spaceship in the movie.
Some of the other toys seen in the leaked images are models of Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley) and the soccer droid BB-8. The X-Wing set includes toys of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), another Resistance forces pilot, a ground crew and BB-8.
The names of the actors playing the roles of the Kanjiklub gang member and Tasu Leech in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” haven’t been revealed in the leaked images, but Anthony Breznican of Entertainment Weekly suggests that the actor playing Tasu in the movie is Yayan Ruhian. The speculation is based on the physical resemblance of the actor to the toy.
Ruhian is a martial arts expert who has been a part of “The Raid: Redemption” and “Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld.” The actor, Lucasfilm and Lego have reportedly no comment on the leaked image.
Breznican notes that Leech and possibly his fellow gang members have some “hostility” toward the Millennium Falcon and its crew in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” since the toys are seen firing at the spaceship from the ground in the image. More details about the movie are expected to be made available before the release of the movie. The movie is set to be released Dec. 18, 2015, in the U.S.
