Did a LEGO set just reveal a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens character?

So far, everything we've seen from Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been pretty carefully curated by director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy. Sure, we've seen some leaks here and there, but most of the official stuff has come through their own sense of what we should see and when. Now we're starting to enter territory where that might change.

See, the first official toys for The Force Awakens are just around the corner, and some corners of the Internet are already getting a closer look at various characters and scenarios. Now, today, we have a look at what seems to be a new character.

This leak comes courtesy of From Bricks to Bothans (who've already deleted their post), which seems to reveals some new LEGO set packaging photos that reveal some new characters. Here the images are via Battlefront News on Twitter.



In these images, we see the names of several characters we already know, including Finn and Rey, but there are also new faces. The name "Kanjiklub gang" shows up, as does the name "Tasu Leech," who seems like he may be associated with the Kanjiklub character.

At the moment, we're not sure who this character really is, or where his allegiances lie (though as EW notes, he seems to be an adversary of the Millennium Falcon), but we're looking forward to finding out as this film's marketing machine pushes forward.
