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.

You'll have caught a glimpse of this minifig in our 75188 Resistance Bomber reveal in May, so here is a bigger and better shot to whet your appetitie for the upcoming The Last Jedi sets due to be released by LEGO in September. Compare the previous image with this one and you'll immediately spot that the face is reversible - with a plain minifig face on one side and another with a breathing mask.

The latest pre-released minifig image is of Rose, a new character who is said to accompany Finn on a side mission in The Last Jedi and will come in an as yet unknown set. The torso and leg print shows a non-descript maintenance workers outfit, and all-in-all it's a rather non-descript minifig that is somewhat reminiscent of the LEGO version of Irina Spalko from the IJ: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sets.

Sporting a new quilted tabard, Kylo Ren displays his rage face in this new The Last Jedi minifig which is from an undocumented set - no points for suggesting Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter though. We are guessing that the head piece is dual-sided, with the reverse depicting a less aggressive visage. It is interesting to note that the scar Kylo Ren received in his duel with Rey in The Force Awakens is in the controversial location that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson moved it to. Grr, continuity, growl, fans unite, grr.

Today's first The Last Jedi minifig leak is the latest non-commissioned officer to join the ranks of the First Order defence force. In the packaging shot we posted of this minifig it is show with the shoulder pauldron on the right shoulder so one would assume the example in the image above was assembled incorrectly. In comparison with the First Order Stormtrooper minifig that came with 75103, 75132 and 75139 it is clear that the helmet and front print on the torso is not unique.
