Sporting a very George Michael look is the latest incarnation of hero of the Resistance, Poe Dameron, from The Last Jedi. This minifig is expected to be released with 75188 Resistance Bomber and depicts Poe in some kind of crash harness or flight suit. It is worth noting that this leaked image has a long blaster instead of the shorter one shown on the boxed proof images that were leaked in May. This marks the fourth in a full set of five minifigs from the 75188 Resistance Bomber set, with Resistance Gunner Paige still AWOL.

This minifig has leaked just at the right time because I've found a whole new set of goofy colour filters to reduce the impact of these spoilers. Click on the thumbnail to take a peak of three images (which may possibly be renders) of this Resistance character played by Laura Dern in the upcoming The Last Jedi, due out on December 15th. And yes, we think that she looks like Betty White too.

Despite some well documented production woes Lucasfilm/Disney are holding the release date for the currently untitled Han Solo stand alone movie at May 25th, 2018, and now Brick Fanatics have received word that suggests the LEGO Star Wars range for the Han Solo movie will hit shelves on April 20th, 2018. This would put the - presumably wider - merchandise release five weeks ahead of the movie's premiere. While Brick Fanatics are quietly confident that this will pan out it remains a rumour until officially confirmed by Lucasfilm/Disney or LEGO.

We've already seen one ground trooper of the Resistance army, and now we're revealing the Resistance Trooper that will come with 75189 First Order Heavy Transport. Sporting the same visored helmet, but with a flip down face guard, and printed leg piece as the aforementioned Resistance Trooper this one has a new bearded face and torso print.

With a day between unofficial photo releases the LEGO The Last Jedi leakapolooza seems to be tailing off now. Here is the Resistance Bomber Pilot that will be included in the 75188 Resistance Bomber (see our earlier report for a description and images). This minifig has the same face, torso and leg print as the Resistance Bombardier minifig, but comes with a new single piece visored helmet. Truth be told, it's not a great picture and only marginally better than the one that came with the boxed minifig lineup but the Aurabesh on the helmet is readable. Does anyone want to translate it? We'd love to hear from you if you manage to figure out what it says.

You take your eyes off the internet for five seconds and another preliminary minifig gets posted. Making its debut in the pantheon of leaked The Last Jedi minifigs is the First Order Walker Driver from the 75189 First Order Heavy Walker set. With a distinct Ziggy Stardust flash across its helmet, chest and leg print this is a completely new and original design and is the first time we've seen a new First Order combatant we have seen for the next Star Wars instalment.
