***No Spoilers unless you haven’t seen the trailers***
In hours, rather than days, thousands will begin pouring into theaters around the world to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The winter movie that is poised to demolish all of the records before it. Pre-sales for tickets for the movie are said to be around $100 million.
And the only place to play TFA is on Disney Infinity. I am looking forward to this Playset more than any other. The playset comes with figures for the two new main characters Finn and Rey and a crystal piece for the playset. There are still a lot of mysteries surrounding these two (or who they are connected to).
We recently had a trailer for the game, and now there is a poster. All of the Star Wars movies have had awesome posters, and The Force Awakens did not disappoint when it’s poster was revealed on the Internet.
And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for!
This poster has me excited for the movie and the Play Set. Let’s take another look. At the very top we see what appears to be a new Death Star inspired weapon. We’ve seen what I am assuming to be the destructive red (coincidence… I think not) beam from this weapon.
Next we see Kylo Ren with his imperfect red lightsaber (which interestingly is the only lightsaber on the poster). Kylo Ren has a DI figure that is sold separately from the Play Set. His figure looks menacing even when placed next to Darth Vader. Many are mistakenly thinking that Kylo Ren will be a sith, but from what we know he is not. He actually belongs to a group called the Knights of Ren.
As you move down you see our two protagonists of the film and Play Set. We know that Rey grew up on a Jakku which was the site of a major (and maybe final) battle between the Empire and the Republic. At some point she comes across a little droid designated BB-8, and that’s when her adventure begins. She then meets Finn. From voiceover in the trailers it appears That when we meet Finn he will be making a very important decision to turn on the First Order (who has replaced The Galactic Empire).
Between Rey and Finn are a couple of aged but familiar faces. Han Solo and Chewbacca are both featured in movie advertising for the movie and the Play Set. The moment I first saw Han in the original trailer I was ready for this movie, and I am ready for the Play Set as well.
Below Han and Chewie we have another new character who has a figure sold separately from the Play Set, Poe Dameron. I honestly know very little about the character, except that he is an X-Wing pilot and part of the main cast.
Surrounding our cast of figures we see the Millenium Falcon, new TIE fighters, new X-Wing fighters, and Stormtroopers. Everything about this poster screams that this will be the Play Set to play this holiday season.
