    It's here folks... figured I would start a thread for it... this is gonna be a biggie, with lots and lots of debate...

    A more direct link to the ImageShack storage for these images is here

    Anyone debating clicking the link... this is it, the real deal, all the concept art we have been talking about...

    Plenty of discussion to follow...

    [UPDATE]The images have now been removed...[/UPDATE]

    [more updates]For those who did not get a chance to see the original release of the concept art before it was taken down, a somewhat more official release of the images can be found here[/]

    MOD - DarthDwight: Here is another link provided by @guywalker.

    And here I thought I was sleeping tonight. I'll post piece by piece tomorrow on my thoughts once I gather them from the nerdsplosion.

    Ok, first thoughts... let's take them in order, grouped on millenniumfalcon.com

    AT-AT & Binary Sunset
    These almost look like production shots they are so clean and clear... My first thought on these was the one titled, "Binary Sunset". I have been fighting against the idea that the desert planet Daisy is on is Tattooine... but "binary sunset" seems to indicate that it is. While there are many binary star systems, and many desert planets... coincidence is starting to catch up with it, and it is looking like that is where they are... why? What is there? Maybe what they are searching for is something that was in Ben's hermit retreat...

    Daisy Ridley & Boyega Saber
    The one with Daisy holding up the saber... the "grave robber" is in the background, doesn't look like she is fighting him, could they be fighting together?

    Grave Robber & Vader
    Grave Robber I certainly looks like loving reverence... tenderness... strong emotional contact, not one who loved from afar, almost... remembrance... and the skin on the lip, interesting touch... why, when that much is machine... why the lip? Is the nose-piece over the face? A mask? Perhaps not ALL cyborg...

    Grave Robber & Daisy Ridley
    The one called Dark Knight & Daisy Ridley is pretty blunt... interesting that in some places this being is referred to as "Grave Robber" and in some "Dark Knight"... but never Luke... Daisy and Boyega are mentioned by name... this being is not ever mentioned by name, but is given two monikers... worthy of note

    Greenham Hangar Set & Massassi Temple
    The rebel base on Yavin was the only Massassi temple we have seen (unless you count Jabba's palace, I guess) so we certainly do seem to be visiting old haunts... if the desert is Tattooine and the Massassi temple is Yavin... the snow planet could be Hoth... throw my objections out the window on that

    Millennium Falcon & Skellig Michael Set
    We know Daisy and Mark were there, don't remember confirmation about Harrison being there... so maybe Daisy has the Falcon all along. Certainly lending to the idea that the final battle (or at least the one we have seen in other concept art) is on Skellig Michael

    Pod Bike & Pod Falcon and Pod Junker & Land Speeder
    Building on the former statement, it is interesting that the craft we are told Daisy is piloting is called the Pod Falcon... as in, utility craft of the Falcon...

    Tie Fighters
    Yeah, that's one downed TIE fighter... is Boyega the pilot (and it's looking like he was) and why was he in a TIE

    Abu Dharib Set & Outrider
    The one with the Falcon is marked WIP, which I can only assume is "Work In Progress"

    Chewbacca Cybernetic & Knight Trooper
    Chewie was talked about, he isn't cyber, but the chrometrooper being listed as Knight Trooper is very interesting. Anyone still doubting their existence?

    Daisy Ridley
    The concept of Daisy is listed as "smuggler gear"... not scavenger, not pirate... not Jedi Padawan... smuggler... does Boyega contact her because he needs to get something (or someone) smuggled to Luke, like Obi-Wan and Luke went to Han in ANH

    Montross (Unused Character 1976)
    These look like what we have been led to think the MvS character is... but it is specifically called Montross...

    Montross was a Mandalorian–turned–bounty hunter who competed with Jango Fett to become the template for the clone troopers of the Galactic Republic. Originally one of Jaster Mereel's True Mandalorians, Montross fought in the Mandalorian Civil War, where he was known for his brutal tactics and reckless acts. When a young boy called Jango Fett joined the Mandalorians and was treated like a son by Mereel, Montross was angered by Mereel's favoritism of Fett and became contemptuous of him. In an engagement on Korda Six, Montross left Mereel to die. He attempted to claim the title of Mandalore, but was thwarted by Fett, who told the true story of Mereel's death to the other Mandalorians, took over, and banished Montross.

    Would be interesting if this is MvS

    Millennium Falcon Set Plans
    More than anything else, this to me is the proof of authenticity... We were told earlier that there were two rebel installations, the Greenham and the Pirate's Cove, but earlier the Greenham location was referred to as the Massassi set, and here we have the details of "Massassi Temple - Pirate's Cove" so I am thinking that the Greenham/Massassi set is the Pirate's Cove. The interior was obviously done at the studio in Pinewood, but what really makes me tie this into being Yavin (and not some other Massassi temple) is the inset piece mapping the Ep IV hanger.

    The one titled "carosel" (even though it is spelled Carousel" on the blueprints in the actual image) is, oddly enough, a size comparison... ["The Carousel" Size Comparison] is what the blueprint reads... showing two different sizes of Falcon?


    Wampa Saber
    If I read the image correctly, it says JK_Sword_WAMPA I would say, whatever Christi's character is, her initials are JK

    Vader Helm
    And here we end... with the burned out hulk which was our Sith... and he will be in this film, from a certain point of view...

    I may not sleep for a week...

    They all look fabulous. Cyborg looks particularly scary.

    I think most of the titles are speculation. This is how misinformation starts.

    I think it's safe to assume at this point that the cyborg is not
    Luke Skywalker
    - he's on what appears to be an imperial vessel.

    At the same time though, a lot of this could have changed significantly.

    My sentiments exactly...

    Like a commenter on the link said, these are very interesting pieces of work, some are simply amazing, and would be awesome in an artbook if not actually used in the film.

    I stayed up late even though I have a test to work on in less than twelve hours.

    Totally worth it to get a look at these. (Don't worry, I've been studying!)

    If he has gone all dark... where else would he be?

    Your image looks a little lighter than the one on Falcon... and looking at yours, it looks much more like the face piece is over the face, not the face itself... a mask?

    Picture Vader's helmet... take off the cowl... remove the mouth piece... just the piece that covers the eyes and nose, but not the eye lenses... that is what this looks like...

    If Norman Bates can kill his mother and dress up like her... why can't Luke do the same after killing his father? Ever hear how power executives like to be little sissy boys for dominant mistresses so they can escape having to be in control? What does the pressure of rebuilding a Jedi order do to someone... cross dressing to a whole new level...

    Show this thread to your boss... he might totally understand

    Well, he has no beard. So it's not Luke. Luke going evil without any explanation makes no sense anyways. This isn't Luke.

    Haven't we also being told (source alludes me) that this

    [​IMG]

    is not Luke's hand- the same hand in the concept art.

    College doesn't have bosses for students, it has professors.

    But I will be mirroring the blast out of these images, let me tell you.

    He looks far too youthful, doesn't he? Almost like a dark prince, like Anakin before becoming a Darth or Luke in ROTJ. Of course this is all concept and no one really knows who it is supposed to be or if they will even be in the film. I remember someone saying the production took the villain in a wholly different direction, but I don't remember where I heard it. In any case, something that catches my eye is the painting with the girl being held by this Dark Prince...she bears a striking resemblance in my eye to Leia and specifically Carrie's real life daughter. Coincidence? Was it because the girl in the painting was a rough idea of the daughter of Leia before casting was finalized? The reason I ask this is mainly because of the resemblance, but also because the other concepts of what we think portray Daisy's character actually look more like Daisy whereas this one clearly does not.

    Even if these aren't used in the film, it's great to know that this what the direction the film was at some point. A lot of creativity and surprises are in store.

    Ahhh, so finally someone leaked them. It was just a question of time. Too many people were shared these.

    Totally agree. They look quite muscular and strong. The suits look like they fit them.

    Ahhh... you originally said, "test to work on" which I (in excitement over the elephant in the room) read as "test at work"

    I also remember reading a quote somewhere that said, (more or less) "yeah, you can fit a beard under this"

    How many had you seen... and how many more have you seen we don't know about?


    (duel)(duel)(duel)(duel)(duel)(duel)

    Btw, and while it lasts... here is a link to download the images in a zip file
