    Finn's shirt looks almost like a Jedi undershirt

    That's exactly what I thought too upon first viewing. Though, part of me wants it to just be a dressing gown he put on after leaving the bacta tank (?) and forgot to take off.

    How can you tell from the picture as it only really shows Finn's head & torso. He may well have mechanical parts attached to his legs or hand & you wouldn't know from that picture

    Unless cybernetics are now directly built into his spine, they'd show something for visual reasons

    Yes I am sure they would reveal that sort of info 10 months before the film on a toy package sorry but this is the last thing they would do. That image of finn is designed to give as little away as possible. Now I am not saying he does have mechanical enhancement's just that this image doesn't rule them out

    I get you. I agree that they wouldn't reveal anything so soon and they wouldn't reveal it even a month before (maybe) but it would even in the slightest sense a tad obvious

    This week the film I watchem from Rian Johnson's bucket list is Sahara (1943) starring Humphrey Bogart. It tells a story of American and British soldiers that escape the German army after the fall of Tobruk in one tank. The first half of the film has a strong "man against the nature," as the tank crew picks up more people along the way (Italian POW, German pilot and Sudanese soldier) with resources (especially water) that deplete quickly. Although we might see some scenes that relate to that in Episode VIII, I believe the second half of the film has much more importance for us, Star Wars fans.

    During the second half of the film the crew reaches ruins with a well that contains water. However, we also learn that the Allied Forces are to come to El Alamein to defend against further Axis offensive. Moreover, a sizeable division of Germans desperately needs to restock on water (their reserves had run out days before) and our heroes catch their scouts, so they decide to pull off a crazy feat. They bait these Germans into these ruins and fight against them. Ten-people crew to hundreds of soldiers and ultimately, they win. This is a motif that we may have been looking for - a small band of Resistance fighters is able to put up a fight against much bigger, but desperate First Order's division.

    Ok, not trying to speculate too much but honest question: why announce Force Friday this far in advance? For TFA they announced it early May, mid Feb for TLJ seems pretty early...

    Force Friday worked well the first time. I think that announcing Force Friday early will help toy companies to prepare for the event.

    Finn's jacket looks the same from TFA. I'd like to see the back of it. There might be a long gash in it.

    I was within the first 20 people in line and went home with barely anything. And yea, I guess last year's Rogue One launch wasn't called Force Friday officially...

    The gash would be there because he got a serious back injury from Kylo Ren's lightsaber. Unless he has a tailor, his jacket will probably be worse for wear.
