(Update: Some more images have made their way online thanks to some tweets by Jedi News‘ Justin LaSalata that shows Ezra with a lightsaber that has a unique hilt, the Phantom, some 12 inch figures, as well as some better shots of the artwork for the Command line box with the Mandalorian character)
Toy Fair 2014 in New York officially kicks off tomorrow, but new photos of figures from the Star Wars Rebels line are already making their way online. Thanks to some tweets from the guys over at Rebels Transmission and Rebels Report, we’re able to get some great looks at the figures from the series such as Kanan, Ezra, Zeb, some vehicles, and also images of some new, and unknown characters! You can check out all the images of the figures from Toy Fair below:
The figures and vehicles shown in these images look really cool, and it’s great to get a look at some new and familiar characters who look to show up in the show. Characters like that Imperial officer who is speculated to be named Agent Kallus, and of course of everyone’s favorite droid duo, R2-D2 and C-3PO.
But the image that has me most intrigued is the one of the female Mandalorian. First off, I think it would be really cool to have one of the main heroes be someone who wears Mandalorian armor, but there is already some speculation going around online about just who is under that helmet. And right now the speculation is that maybe this character could be Ahsoka Tano. There is some evidence in the image that supports the theory, as the Mandalorian is definitely a female, and if you look closely at her skin color, it does resemble the tone of Ahsoka’s skin. But then, how could Ahsoka fit her head inside the helmet with her lekku? Maybe it’s just wishful thinking by fans that really want to see Ahsoka in this series, but we do know that there is still one more main hero character who has not been revealed at all, and this mysterious Mandalorian character could be that last rebel.
Hopefully we wont have to wait too long to find out who exactly these new characters are, but we’ll definitely keep you posted on all the news that comes out of Toy Fair 2014. Thanks to Rebels Transmission and Rebels Report for tweeting out these images.
