With the big announcement this morning of the Force Awakens line up, we got our first look at all the amazing new Star Wars content.
Of all the exciting Force Awaken’s content that was revealed, we still have a few questions remaining, particularly with the Power Discs, which had it’s content censored from view.
We know Disney and the Lucas team has been very secretive about the Force Awakens content, and fearing that these power discs my reveal a critical plot point or secret to the film, they kept their details under wraps for now.
But any savy Star Wars fan has already seen details on these power discs in trailers, promotional items and newly released toys. In addition to that, taking a close look at the packaging still reveals some of the content of each power disc in the overlapping packaging that wasn’t completely greyed out.
Here are some of our assumptions, best guesses, and details about these new power discs based on other announcements and info outside of Disney Infinity.
RESISTANCE TACTICAL STRIKE: Special Attack (Round)
This is the first disc in the power disc pack, and will provide the users with a special attack like we’ve seen introduced in 2.0. Here is an up close look at the packaging and the partial peek at the artwork they didn’t grey out.
The Resistance forms shortly after the Battle of Endor and is lead by Leia, and includes members such as Poe Dameron and R2-D2. You catch a glimpse of some of the Resistance Fighters in the Force Awakens trailer.
POE’S RESISTANCE JACKET: Costume Change (Round)
Poe Dameron is seen in various toys and promotional images in one of two outfits, his bright orange flight suit (which his Infinity figure is wearing) or his tan jacket. This tan jacket eventually switches hands in the film because its the same jacket we see Finn wearing on both his figure and in a majority of the film stills.
FINN’S STORMTROOPER COSTUME: Costume Change (Round)
We are first introduced to Finn as a storm trooper, and he eventually gets ahold of Poe Dameron’s jacket which he wears for the remainder of the film. Finn servers as a Storm Trooper and can be seen in the trailers and toy line up in his Storm Trooper outfit.
While nothing has been official confirmed, this shot from the trailer is likely Finn in his Stormtrooper outfit and Poe in his Resistance Jacket.
QUAD JUMPER: Vehicle Disc (Hexagonal)
The Quad Jumper is where things get a little tricky, as we have seen a ton of new vehicles for Star Wars but haven’t gotten much official word on what their names are. There are a few vehicles we’ve gotten a look at that might qualify as the quad jumper, so we will share them all and see what turns up to be the right one.
This piece of concept art shows a land speeder vehicle with four large thrusters (quad). This looks like it would translate into a seriously awesome power disc vehicle.
But perhaps the quad could be referring to the amount of legs, not the amount of thrusters. We’ve also seen this incredible new creature ridden by one of the scavengers of Jakku.
