New Gunner?

Post by Sarge » Sat Jul 29, 2017 2:40 am

I know that Lego isn't the most trustworthy source, but there's a figure on this box that depicts a "First Order Gunner". I think it's a sneak peak at the new line of lego toys for the upcoming Last Jedi movie.

I think that's exactly the same as the "First Order Technician" and "First Order Engineer." They can't seem to decide what to call these guys!

I heard about that last week. It is the exact same figure that they called the First Order Crewman and sometimes First Order Engineer. It's also possible that LFL is re-using the costume for a different role. The million dollar question will be if they will be in any other role other than blurry window-dressing. That's why neither us nor the IOC pursued it from a CRL perspective: there just weren't enough references to build an accurate set of standards.

Yeah, it looks like the character so far has been pretty undefined, jumping from one description to another. Maybe "The Last Jedi" will clear things up a bit.

If the character is indeed a gunner, and there are enough references, we'll be more than happy to start working on the CRL.

Visual guide referred to the ones in Ep7 as Engineers, assume these are just the same. Lego's never been very accurate with their naming same as the toys, think part comes from the multiple language translations they do on the packaging now and being produced so far in advance.

We still never got clear images of the Engineer costumes did we?

No. About the best we got is a front view in the visual dictionary. Nothing that clearly shows the back.
