So, it looks as though the Russian incarnation of shop.lego.com went ahead and released photos of the new TLJ figs, 75526 and 75528 through 75530. Why is it almost always Russia?
Obviously I can't link to them, but they look fantastic. For those who are interested:
75526 is "Elite Tie Fighter Pilot". Though it bears a pretty strong resemblance to the Death Trooper, it has some noticeable differences, such as some sort of technic-constructed flight suit a la Poe Dameron and a bizarre, red and black headsculpt.
75528 is Rey. She's got exposed hair(!), a selection of printed light bley parts, and a recolor of the lower leg shell in dark brown. Additionally, she uses Jyn Erso's torso plate, and comes with a lightsaber.
75529 is "Elite Praetorian Guard". He or she is phenomenal. Seriously, this may be the best SWC set at the 25 USD price point yet. We're looking at three or four new recolors in Mata Red, several other parts that haven't been seen in said color since early HF, and a new G2-esque blade piece with a pin add-on. There's a cloth component on both this one and Rey.
75530 is Chewbacca. Unfortunately, TLG may have began to drop the ball here; the set is big, and full of interesting parts, but they don't do a great job of meshing together well. The new wrap-around shell shows up printed, eight times, and the headsculpt is among the worst of the SW figs so far, as far as I'm concerned. On the bright side, he looks as though he includes a working crossbow, which is incredible in and of itself. As in, you pull back and the projectile launches. The large beast feet show up recolored as well.
You can probably find the images on the legoleaks subreddit pretty readily.
