A still image (or production photo) of Rose and Rey in Star Wars Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker was revealed earlier today. So without any further delay, here’s the photo:
And while I think that Rose looks a lot better than in her TLJ outfit, very official and all business, I can still only hope we will not get an action figure of her in that outfit, since it follows the more or less boring design language of Resistance costumes. The shirt appears to have the exact same design as Poe’s. So that means she probably also wears pants with a similar design and color: brown. I really, really hope Star Wars will eventually move beyond the current tan, beige, brown, grey, white and black color scheme. My toy shelf needs some more color!
We’re adding some new The Black Series [Phase III] 6-Inch figures to our Visual Guides, starting with Resistance Tech Rose (55). Click below to have a look. You can also check out our full review of this figure right here.
The 6″ version of Resistance Tech Rose turned out better than expected, but she still doesn’t look better than the 5POA version (sigh). Find out why you shouldn’t overlook her however in our Research Droids Reviews today!

From the day I saw the Resistance Gunner Paige and Resistance Tech Rose on store shelves September 1st, I stated immediately how intrigued I was by their characters and that I hoped right from the start that their characters would become a meaningful addition to The Last Jedi. The Last Jedi MUST DELIVER! This is evidenced by how I feel about The Force Awakens. In my opinion, Star Wars needs a jolt of Force lightning in the storytelling and I hope it gets rejuvenated into hyperdrive with Episode VIII. Just recently, director Rian Johnson hosted a Twitter Q&A. One of the questions asked focused on what character he is most interested in and he made it clear that Rose is a character he adores. I can’t tell you how excited I am by Rian’s response. Click through to check it out. Do you think Rian is right? Are we in store for something good with Rose? Lord knows she’s got to be better than Rey!
