JJ Abrams may be doing a frustratingly good job at keeping Star Wars: The Force Awakens secrets, well, secret, but now, the new themed Lego sets have debuted two never-before-seen characters.

Leaked images of the Millennium Falcon and X-Wing toy sets appeared on Lego/Star Wars fansite From Bricks to Bothans yesterday, sparking great excitement among fans on social media.

Mini figurines in the box include an aged Han Solo and Chewbacca, already confirmed new characters Finn, Rey and BB-8 and two unknowns, one with braids and a beard called Tasu Leech and another nameless man from the so-called Kanjiklub gang.

Poe Dameron's X-Wing is black and orange, which fans are enjoying (it's "the coolest colour combo ever", apparently), while the Falcon seems to be under attack from the two mysterious characters, suggesting they may be baddies.

No-one has any idea who might be playing the two men, but some reports are speculating that Indonesian martial artist Yayan Ruhian could be Leech as he is mentioned on The Force Awakens IMDB page and looks the most like the figurine.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits UK cinemas on 18 December and the Lego sets reach shelves in September.
