Okay, we lied when we said the last Rey figure from Hot Toys was the one we were waiting for. It’s this one instead.
At io9, we love wild theories about movies and TV shows based on actor hair length (just look at our shockingly extensive coverage of Jon Snow’s locks). So when Daisy Ridley reveals that she has to hide her Episode VIII hairstyle for spoilers’ sake, even while she’s just working out, you can be damn well sure we pay…
We know that Luke and Rey will be spending time together in Star Wars Episode VIII. And we can only hope it proves the fan theory that Luke really only knows how to train a Jedi the same way he was trained.
The Force Awakens had lots of lovely surprises—but one of the biggest of all was just how relative newcomer Daisy Ridley completed nailed her portrayal of Rey. Now that we’ve seen her audition though, it’s hard not to see why the production team fell in love with her, too.
There was a lot of potential when someone at Disney decided to turn Rey’s Speeder into a USB flash drive. That is, until the company decided to cheap out and put a paltry 4GB of storage in it. It won’t even be able to hold the HD digital copy of The Force Awakens you’re so desperate to download.

There are a few big mysteries in The Force Awakens. We’ve discussed one already (the identity of the First Order’s Supreme Leader Snoke) so now it’s time to discuss an even more pressing question: Who are Rey’s parents?

The problems of female characters being under-represented in geek merchandise is real. But when it’s a secondary character like Gamora or Black Widow, at least toy companies have an excuse. When the girl is not just the star of the movie, but of the whole franchise, that’s another story.
Were you bummed that there was only one poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens? That just changed. Star Wars social media exploded Wednesday morning with a bunch of brand new character posters featuring Finn, Rey, Kylo Ren, Han Solo and Princess Leia.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a few months away, but there’s less than a month until its Toys hit shelves across the world—and that means until then, toys will inevitably leak their way onto the internet before release.
