J.J. Abrams seems to be going by the old adage “Loose lips sink spaceships,” because it’s hard to find any new info on Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
But you can’t stop the merchandising, as Spaceballs‘ Yogurt would say.
The package of LEGO‘s Millennium Falcon set was spotted early, and it includes a named character that no one has even heard of!
The character, listed as Tasu Leech, doesn’t have any info with it, but it is a dead ringer for cast member Yayan Ruhian:
The fact that Yayan is a martial arts expert (see his scene-stealing performance as Mad Dog in The Raid: Redemption), we’re guessing Tasu is going to be one tough customer.
And that may be his The Raid 2 costar and fellow Pencak Silat fighter Cecep Arif Rahman as the “Kanjiklub gang member.”
Both actors were reportedly cast early this year specifically for their fighting ability.
Inneresting! Can’t wait to see them in action!
