These Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Posters Sure Are Awesome

A slew of major characters from a galaxy far, far away – including everybody's favorite scruffy-looking nerf herder – have graced a new set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens posters. Han Solo readies his blaster pistol in his stylish portrait, shared today on official Star Wars social media sites.

Besides the heroic smuggler, the lineup of character portraits includes Finn, Kylo Ren, Leia Organa, and Rey.

Holding a lightsaber blade that close to your eye might not be the best idea, Finn...

Seriously, look at this poster and tell me Han didn't shoot first. I dare you.

Darth Revan, I mean, Kylo Ren rocks the black hood and mask look.

I guess Leia didn't get the memo about covering her right eye with a handy weapon. 

Rey, on the other hand, apparently did.

As usual, farm-boy-turned-Jedi-Master Luke Skywalker is conspicuously absent from the official promo material. Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18.
