With the release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” just months away, fans are jumping into any info available to keep them company. However, it looks like GameStop gave them some juicy information through its toy listings.

According to a list leaked on Reddit over the weekend, new characters will appear in the upcoming “Star Wars” film. Some of the new names used in some of the toys include Foxtrot and Cool Beta, among others. It is yet to be determined, however, if they are just code names for the toys or if they are the actual names of the characters.

Other confirmed characters that are part of the toy line include Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson), Lando Calrissian, and Darth Vader. In addition, there will also be a Stormtrooper toy, as well as a so-called Victor toy. The latter character is speculated to be Supreme Leader Snoke, according to post from La Fosa del Rancor.

The post explained that the names of “Cool Beta” and “Foxtrot” are the toughest to guess or identify. Since it is the first wave of “Star Wars Episode VIII toys,” there is a possibility that they could be of great significance like the characters of Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, or Rey, to name a few.

Meanwhile, the basis of the character Victor being Snoke is that one of the two figures comes with a throne. In the films, only Snoke sat on a throne.

Meanwhile, another theory posted on Reddit last week said that General Leia Organa will have a face-off against Snoke. The showdown will reportedly take place in the early portions of the upcoming film. Captain Phasma will allegedly capture the General and take her to the Star Destroyer.

Phasma will then present Leia to Snoke. Then, the two will reportedly exchange barbs. Leia mentions the possibility of Luke making a return, and this causes Snoke to get angry.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will premiere on Dec. 15.
