Topps trading card shows Snoke in The Last Jedi

Supreme Leader Snoke remains as much a mystery as Rey in the Star Wars sequel trilogy.

Snoke first appeared as a giant hologram in JJ Abrams' The Force Awakens and fans will learn more about the power behind the First Order in Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi this December.

Fans got their first glimpse of Snoke's toy incarnation before Force Friday. Now, Topps reveals how he'll look in The Last Jedi. His appearance is akin to a reconstructed Anakin Skywalker. It's divisive out of context sans Andy Serkis' voiceover. Snoke's a giant seemingly channelling Hugh Hefner in a golden robe. More intergalactic playboy than menace.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

Andy Serkis’ Star Wars character officially revealed

The name of Andy Serkis' character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been officially announced in an exclusive interview with photographer Annie Leibovitz at

“I can remember, from the very beginning,” Leibovitz tells, “I was astounded by the universe that George [Lucas] had created. I’d never seen anything like it. It was just unbelievable, and the actors and characters really resonated with all of us. It was a great, great visual story that continues to carry forth today.”

Fans who are sensitive to spoilers may wish to stop reading...

Actor Andy Serkis has become synonymous with motion-capture performance: from The Lord of the Rings to Planet of the Apes. The Force Awakens will be no exception. Serkis is playing Supreme Leader Snoke and his brooding intonations were heard in the first teaser trailer.

Safe to assume Snoke's a villain? Let me know in the comments below.
