Star Wars Sequel Skin Pack: Out Now
Explore both sides of the Force with the new pack on Marketplace!
Has any man, in any galaxy, snivelled with such snivelly snivelliness as General Armitage Hux? I doubt it. He’s just one of the (inter)stellar skins we’ve included in the Star Wars Sequel Skin Pack, featuring a total of 53 characters from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
The light side shows up in force, naturally, with a choice of two skins for the sequels’ tenacious heroine Rey and her irrepressible friend Finn (who also appears wearing a Bacta Suit), plus Poe Dameron, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker and no small number of their fellow “rebel scum”.
But the universe must have balance! Bringing up the dark side numbers are Kylo Ren, both fresh-faced and scarred, and his devious master Snoke. Then there’s the steely Captain Phasma and General Armitage Hux, available for all your snivelling needs. And this grim lot are accompanied by Stormtroopers, informers, enforcers, a TIE Fighter pilot and other dastardly collaborators of the Empire.
And that’s not all: you can take on the peculiar shape of Gwellis Bagnoro, Grummgar or Pru Sweevant, and stroll around in the pixel-flesh of Nien Nunb, Quiggold, and Bala-Tik. Ensign Goode is present and correct, as you’d expect, and Razoo Qin Fee is out for vengeance (or an ample pay-off). Hankering to jump in the slinky skin of Bazine Netal? We’ve got you covered! And of course C’ai Threnalli and Bargwill Tomder make an appearance, too.
I asked 4J Studios’ art director David Keningale if he could pick a favourite from the skins they created.
“That is a difficult choice. I think our team has done a fantastic job with all these characters. I have a few favourites – obviously Chewbacca and Rey are up there, but from a Minecraft viewpoint I love the extended neck and head of the droid PZ-4CO. It works really well.”

“I’ve been a fan of Star Wars since… a long time ago,” says David. “Getting to work on the pack with the latest movies really has been very exciting, almost like a dream come true.”
