During the Star Wars Triple Force Friday livestream of the new toy release, fans got a nice surprise about a couple of new characters from The Rise of Skywalker.
Warning there are spoilers ahead!
Babu Frik is a black market droidsmith from Poe Dameron’s Spice Running days on Kijimi. He is the little droid fixer! Rey, Poe, Finn, C3-PO, D-O, and BB-8 visit Babu Frik in order to extract the location of the Sith Wayfinder from C3-PO’s memory bank.
Babu Frik is as adorable as he is intelligent. Some even say he is cuter than Baby Yoda. I don’t know about that, but I do know he survives the attack on Kijimi, so there is a good chance we will see him again. Maybe Baby Yoda and Babu Frik can team up and take down the Darkside with their combined charm.
Babu Frik comes with the Hasbro Black Series C-3PO set. He is a droid builder so far. This set is particularly cool because it showcases Threepio in Chewbaccas bag and holding his crossbow blaster.

Boolio is a friend of The Resistance. His job in The Rise of Skywalker is to deliver a message from The First Order spy. After R2-D2 successfully gets the information from Boolio, Finn asks how they can thank him, he replies “win the war.”
Unfortunately, Boolio is caught by The First Order and beheaded. By catching Boolio they learn there is a spy within their ranks, which makes for a very tense, uneasy workplace for The First Order Council.
