Set to be released in Spring of 2021, the sixth game in the
LEGO Star Wars franchise, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, is highly
anticipated by fans of both Star Wars and the LEGO titles. The game is set to
cover the events of all nine episodic Star Wars films, featuring hundreds of
fan favourite characters in one of the biggest LEGO experiences to date.
The game has been confirmed to feature upwards of 500 different characters, an unprecedented amount for a LEGO title. Currently, 121 of these characters have been confirmed; this include all main characters, such as Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker and Rey, as well as a host of fan favourite supporting character such as Yoda, Mace Windu, Maz Kanata, Captain Phasma and Admiral Ackbar. Even some spin off characters, such as the fan favourite character Ahsoka Tano from the Clone Wars and Rebels TV Series, have been confirmed to appear.
Despite all of this, 500 character slots it still a lot to fill, and eventually LEGO will run out of major Star Wars characters to complete the roster. This leaves the door wide open for the appearance of some minor and more obscure characters that feature throughout the Star Wars franchise.
While thousands of different characters are featured throughout the expansive media of the franchise, these are ten obscure characters that feature in the movies and need to be playable in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
10. Aurra Sing
The female Palliduvan Bounty Hunter, Aurra Sing, first
appeared in a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo in the film Star Wars: Episode I –
The Phantom Menace, where she can be seen watching the Boonta Eve Podrace from
a balcony at Beggar's Canyon. Sing had a large role in the 2008 animated show Star
Wars: The Clone Wars, where she was seen teaming up with a young Boba Fett in a
revenge mission against Jedi Master Mace Windu.
She was also seen teaming with a group of bounty hunters lead by Cad Bane, during the mission to attack the Republic Senate Building. In the Disney Cannon, it was reveal in the film Solo: A Star Wars Story that Aurra Sing had died on a mission for Dryden Vos, leader of the Crimson Dawn Syndicate. In Legends, Sing was known for her skill at killing Jedi and is often seen wielding a red-bladed Lightsaber.
Aurra Sing has appeared in two LEGO games so far, 2011’s Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars and 2016 LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens; in the latter game, she was featured in DLC ‘The Clone Wars Character Pack.’ Sing is a popular character with fans, and it would be great to see the bounty hunter return for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
