Hasbro has unveiled its San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Star Wars Black Series figures for 2017, and there's an interesting confirmation included.
While the trailer and behind-the-scenes video seemingly confirmed that Luke would train Rey in the ways of the Jedi, it has now been confirmed with the name of her figure: "Rey (Jedi Training)."
This really doesn't come as a gigantic shock, but it's always nice to get a confirmation. It's also interesting to note that the word "Padawan" – the title given to Jedi trainees in the Prequel trilogy – isn't used. Could it be Luke isn't aware of the word? Is Rey on a different path? Or could it be everyone just wants to forget the prequels happened except for Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan?
I'm going with the last one.
The figures will sell as a set at SDCC for $49.99 and a limited supply will be available on HasbroToyShop shortly after the show. For now, read the full description of the figure set below:
