UPDATE: Both videos appear to have been removed from the Hasbro YouTube channel. I'm not sure why. I wonder if they will be changed and reissued?
UPDATE: I had cause to reference this post in a new post and so went to check to see if the commercials that had been removed had been reactivated so I could update this post and found that Hasbro channel has three Star Wars toy videos listed as private. I'm certain these are the commercials that were removed, check out the image of the channel's playlist.
A TV commercial for Hasbro's new Force Link technology has revealed some toy based elements that may be giving us a peak behind the curtain at The Last Jedi...
There are couple of commercials on Hasbro's youtube channel. Thanks to TSW VIP's Adam and Jay for the heads up. In the first one we get a line from Kylo Ren that seems to be from The Last Jedi. Check it out below.
The line is "The darkness guides me..." I don't recall Kylo Ren having this exact line in The Force Awakens, so I'm assuming its from The Last Jedi. much in the same way we got some dialogue revealed from The Force Awakens when the toys had sound chips onboard. Remember Finn's Stormtrooper designation was revealed this way?
The second commercial had this line-
Again this is Kylo Ren, when he is placed next to the action figure of Supreme Leader Snoke on the new BB-8 play set. The tv spot refers to this as "four levels of galactic adventure" by I suspect it is the Mega Star Destoyer we hear Snoke uses to keep moving. Check it out below.
This commercial reveals a few that elements of the playlet that could be very interesting if the translate over to the film. Take a look in the screen shot below.
We get a few things you might expect on a First Order Star Destroyer and/or installation. We have the trash compactor (which suggests a ship to me rather than base) and a detention block. We also see a Throne Room, some trap doors and a "Lightspeed Tracking Room", that has to have some plot significance doesn't it? There is also a scary interrogation chair. We saw an image of the box art for this set which reveals the Rey, Finn and Rose see some action on this ship/base. I wonder if the location of this ship/base and by extension Snoke, is at the heart of Finn and Rose's mission that involves DJ, a trip to Canto Bight and some "slicers" in The Last Jedi? Only time will tell.
I love the way we can mine these toys for clues about the new movies. What have you noticed about the new Hasbro Toys, specifically the Force Link tech? Do you like the sound of Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer and do you think his dialogue is from The Last Jedi? Have your say in the comments below.
