The Coolest Props for The Last Jedi From NYCC

New York Comic-Con is happening right now and while LucasFilm isn’t releasing anything special at the event such as a new trailer for The Last Jedi or possibly some more concrete Han Solo news they have developed a slight presence at the event by revealing new Star Wars books that will be coming out and by having a booth entirely highlighting some props, models, and costumes for The Last Jedi. And so, thanks to starwars.com, I am going to tell you which props I found the coolest to see.

Two Praetorian Guard Weapons

I am already a huge fan of the Praetorian Guards before I even see them in action in the actual film so these weapons are definitely just mind-blowing to me. One is a Praetorian long-axe and the other is an electro-chain whip. Doesn’t that sound awesome?! Electro-chain whip, what is that?! Oh my goodness, I’m so excited for this movie.

Kylo Ren’s Tie Silencer

I wrote a couple of months ago about the new Tie Silencer, which is Kylo Ren’s personal tie fighter, and I thought it was so cool. This model gives an even better, in-depth look into just exactly how it’s going to look and I am ecstatic.

I mean this ship is beautiful at all angles. Wow.

A Resistance Bomber

So, thanks to this model, I now know that those ships I saw at the end of the teaser trailer were actually Resistance bombers. That’s incredibly fascinating because now I’m extra interested in how these ships operate. There have never been bombers in the original trilogy and so I can’t wait to see these ships in action in the film.

Resistance Cruiser Bridge Guard Blaster Rifle

Ever since I obtained Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia I’ve kind of been fascinated with the weapons in Star Wars. And so this model of this rifle instantly caught my eye. I love its ruggedness and it looks like it can do quite some damage. Hopefully, I’ll get to see it in action.

Finn’s Backpack

When I first saw the photo of this backpack I thought it was Rey’s. And then, to find out, that it’s actually Finn’s backpack is kind of amazing. What does Finn having a backpack mean? Is the Resistance going to have to trek somewhere? Is Finn going to trek into some unknown territory and he needs a backpack to hold all of his things? Or am I just thinking too hard about this? I don’t know, but I can’t wait to find out.

And finally the helmets of the First Order and Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber

It’s always cool seeing Kylo Ren’s helmet as well as the simple Stormtrooper helmet but what really catches my eye in this photo is, of course, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber. I absolutely love the crossguard hilt and I’m excited to see if this is just another replica of Kylo Ren’s former lightsaber or if he crafts himself a new one.

And this photo is just amazing. I already love the flametrooper’s helmet but this Praetorian Guard helmet is absolutely fascinating. It’s kind of frightening because there aren’t any different colored slits on the face of the helmet to act as an illusion of eyes. This helps give the facade of a faceless, truly emotionless warrior that the Praetorian Guards are supposed to be. This makes Snoke all the more mysterious. Who is he to have guards such as these protect him? Hopefully The Last Jedi will provide a little more insight. And I’m also hoping that these guards aren’t like Captain Phasma and will be used as great marketing tools only to have next to zero presence in the actual movie.

Well, this is my post. If you would like to see some more of the photos that were shared from NYCC involving The Last Jedi you can go to starwars.com to see them. I thank you for reading and May the Force Be With You…Always.

  1. Hi Annlyel, Those Praetorian Guard weapons do look interesting (and wow that mask!). The double bladed weapon reminds me of Asaj Ventris’ S-Bend double lightsaber staff.
    There has been a Bomber in the original trilogy but it wasn’t seen used in this role in the movies much. The BTL-A4 Y-Wing is called a starfighter but because it was slower and less agile than newer ships it was also used as a bomber. In the First Death Star battle they were used to take out defensive positions and were the first ships to commence a bombing run on the trench exhaust port (Gold Squadron). The X-wings were originally there to protect the Y-Wings from Tie Fighters.
    MTFBWY!
