Thanks to a little toy leak for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, it seems we’re going to be seeing a new Resistance BB unit.
The Last Jedi has already been subject to quite a lot of leaks now, and lots of tie-in merch have already been seen, especially since many of these will be available on Force Friday II this coming September.
Of the new toys, a new BB Unit called BB-9 appeared, which is the First Order’s answer to BB-8. The unit itself will appear sometime in the 30 years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, taking over the R2 units as the most prominent astromech droids used in the galaxy.
Aside from this leak, there’s also an image of a Funko Pop BB9 unit surfacing on reddit, which you can view here.
We’re expecting to see these BB units running around in the background for the upcoming movie, and perhaps an explanation as to why BB-8 himself is considered unique by Poe Dameron, stating that BB-8 is “one of a kind” in The Force Awakens.
Hopefully we’ll find out more when a new trailer has been released for the movie!
