A Supreme Look at Snoke via SWCT

The Star Wars Card Trader app has a great look at Supreme Leader Snoke via one of its award cards. As you can see, his gold robe is far more subdued than what were getting in the 3.75″ and 6″ scale from Hasbro, which looks even more ridiculous by comparison. Click the image above for a closer look.

Thanks to Corey from First Order Transmissions for the heads-up.

    Maybe he’s Jabba who survived his choking and after gastric bypass a’la “My 600 Pound Life”…

    And can anyone tell me what’s up with that large, black looking ring? With that and his robe, he reminds me a lot of either Hugh Hefner or Dorothy Zbornak!

    • Stereotypical Evil Archer

      The Mandalorian Darksaber Kyber Crystal?

  • General Hux

    Snoking hot!!

  • comicalUser

    It is Palpatine! All deformed from his Death Star II mishap.

    The gold looks much better than the bath robe versions on the action figures.

  • CG

    What if he’s darth bane? That would be interesting

    • Stereotypical Evil Archer

      Mark Hamill is the voice of Darth Bane.

      • CG

        And? Thousands of years later he would sound a bit different

        • Stereotypical Evil Archer

          Hamill voiced Bane in The Clone Wars, so that’s about 50 years before The Force Awakens. After thousands of years, I suppose those last 50 are the hardest on the vocal chords.

  • Fred

    Looks like he’s wearing a gold bathrobe.

  • GIBBS v2

    I hope he is like super old, ancient even, an original Sith Lord pulling strings for thousands of years.

    Then eventually when we get a Knights of the Old Republic movies we can see him young, doing his evil thing.

    • Jason

      I’m hoping he can’t use the Force at all. It’s too soon for the Sith to try anything again. I’d rather he just be a Sith devotee who has collected lots of Sith artifacts and information. However if they keep the trend of copying the OT he will be a Sith Lord.

      • GIBBS v2

        That would be interesting. Kylo at some point realizes this and seizes power. But with a face and body like that I have to believe the force is the only thing keeping him together.

        • Jason

          Well I got the idea from the Darth Bane novels. If I remember correctly, it did not go well for the artifact collector…

  • Stereotypical Evil Archer

    Sort of looks like Caesar from the Apes movies, the eyes and mouth.

    • J.R. Raz

      It’s the same motion capture actor. Andy Serkis

    • A bald Cesar…Hmm, possible crossover?

      • Stereotypical Evil Archer

        Ha ha!

    • General Hux

      Well…They’re bathed played by the same actor. Lol

  • The D.O.
  • Paul

    I really like this photo. He has more personality here than he did in all of TFA.

  • Equinsu Ocha

    Snoke is Goldmember

  • Jonathan O.

    I want to know what’s with the Schwartz ring he has on. And will it be as big as Luke’s?

  • JawaKing

    The lighting in the Snoke photo looks like it might not be bright. It might turn out that the robes are more gold and his skin tone lighter than how it appears on the card. I remember way back, when the first photos of Yoda from TESB showed him as grey or bluish, because of the lighting in which the photos were taken.

  • RumSleg

    He looks even more like Ezra Bridger from this angle!

    • Skav Atar

      could be, since Maul and dark and light holocrons, he has knowledge of both the Light and Dark sides of the Force.

      • CountDookie

        Wonder why no yellow and red Sith eyes? He’s training Kylo so he should be a force user.

    • bmales01

      I know we keep making the joke but is Ezra’s race even supposed to be that tall? He’s humanoid so I wouldnt think so. He could be scarred and corrupted by the Dark Side like Palpatine, but his height would increased that much

      • RumSleg

        I think Snoke’s extreme height means he absolutely cannot be Ezra, and thus it is even funnier to continue to speculate that he’s Ezra. 🙂

        • Mike_5555

          I genuinely think Snoke is just Snoke. There won’t be some big reveal, he’s just the evil guy who rules the FO.

          • JohnMorog

            Also probably where all the money to support all the new FO toys comes from.

          • JohnMorog

            Actually all the FO toys come from Hasbro 😉

          • RumSleg

            That’s fine by me, but see my other comment to bmales above. I still think some explanation is necessary re: where Snoke was and what he was doing during Palpatine’s rise and fall.

            Yoda hid, Kenobi hid, Maz hid. Did Snoke hide? If Snoke spent the sixty years of Palpatine’s rise and fall in the Unknown Regions, why did he care to come back to take over the known galaxy?

          • Mike_5555

            I completely agree that they need to explain his motivations and some of his past, but I’m not expecting much. I don’t think they’re that concerned with his history.

          • Paul

            Certainly not in this film, based on Johnson’s comments.

          • CT-7567

            We didn’t know anything about the Emperor until ROTJ. Even then it wasn’t much, but it was enough to simply understand that he was a powerful individual that craved more power. It was ok for Palpatine to simply be “THE Emperor” because it was already established that the bad guys were the Empire. Somebody’s gotta be in charge. And obviously, if the Empire is evil, it’s leader us going to be a big bad. But Snoke can’t just come out of nowhere because of the established galactic history from six previous sags installments.

          • bmales01

            agree, he needs a logical back story for being in the ST and good reasons for his machinations and aspirations

          • Bombadgungan

            Somebody had to fill the void and rule the galaxy.

          • CT-7567

            Right. Plus, how and why us he Supreme Leader of the FO?

          • bmales01

            He needs some good reason for his position. It doesnt mean he needs to be an established character but he should be something logical: eg, a fallen Jedi who hid after Order 66, a rogue Sith who acted behind the scenes for centuries, etc

          • JohnMorog

            Or even some dude with a lot of money that bought his way in. Some sort of backstory.

          • bmales01

            exactly.

          • 80sRobot

            Here’s my proposed Snoke backstory:

            He was a power player behind-the-scenes during the OT era. He and perhaps others helped Palpatine’s rise to power. Snoke’s origins are from beyond the Outer Rim — his race and also the others who collaborated with him on Palpatine are from this mysterious region. We don’t know why they’ve been corrupting the civilizations within the known SW galaxy for millennia. But the Force appears to be a main motivator behind their actions. (The Sequel Trilogy won’t go into this; there isn’t time for it. This would be for another trilogy to take up.)

            There, Kathleen Kennedy — I just did some of the work that Trevorrow (and perhaps Johnson) failed to do! You can PayPal me my money! lol

          • CT-7567

            Exactly. Maybe a former Inquisitor? Something that makes sense in-story.

          • bmales01

            just something logical. and it doesnt need to be a huge amount of dialogue. It can be a few mysterious lines hinting to it

          • Bombadgungan

            Soooo… he’s not Jar Jar? 😉

          • CT-7567

            Agreed. Possibly an insider from Palpatine’s court. Maybe a high ranking former Imperial officer? When I was a kid I used Sim Aloo and my ERG figures as the bad guys in my own further adventures. I just want to know enough about the character to understand him and his motivations.

          • General Hux

            Look up the backstory of Gallius Rax…That’s who I think Snoke is.

        • bmales01

          It is funny. But at the same time, any thruthfulness (or a similar characters) scares me silly

        • Brian Beck
      • RumSleg

        Ezra was scarred and corrupted by the Dark Side and also caught in Wonka’s taffy puller, that’s how he got so tall.

      • RumSleg

        But seriously, I’m a little worried by Rian Johnson’s comments that we won’t get much Snoke back story in The Last Jedi. I don’t need his entire bio, but I would like some satisfying explanation of where he was and what he was doing when Palpatine and Vader were running things. Yoda hid on Dagobah, Kenobi hid on Tatooine, Maz Kanata hid on Takodana (I presume). Is Snoke the hiding type? Did he go traveling the unknown regions for 60 years while Palpatine rose and fell and only decide to come back after he sensed Palpatine was gone?

        • JohnMorog

          Yeah, we definitely need some sort of back story. Granted, with as little back story as we got on Rey, the mystery of who the heck we’re watching may continue! In reality though, we didn’t really know the Emporer’s back story much until the PT, right?

          • bmales01

            We still dont know much about Palpy. Pupil of Plagues. Killed his mentor. No real reason for his aspirations of power other than being a Sith. No personal back story.

          • JohnMorog

            So I guess as long as it’s established that Snoke is bad, sneaky, or otherwise power hungry will we be okay?

          • bmales01

            probably. plus Hollywood and Disney are lazy storytellers

          • JohnMorog

            Sad but true in too many cases, much more than just with Star Wars alone. Probably why Star Wars is so good, really. It’s one of the few sagas that actually has a good story with lots to it.

          • Its best if Palpatine stays a one dimensional character.

          • Paul

            Lucas made the comment in an article in ’99 that Palpatine was originally motivated to do good and used the Dark Side to try and make things better overall in the Republic, but as time passed he became corrupted and eventually just wanted power for power’s sake.

            Granted this is not born out in the actual films.

        • I kind of wonder about those things too, but with the original trilogy I never wanted or needed an backstory or even passing explanation for Palpatine. He was the main bad guy and that was it. We got the whole story of Palpatine later on with the sequels, and that gave him somewhat more dimension, but he didnt really change as a character through all 6 movies. I feel the same about Snoke. The movie doesnt have to explain a whole lot to satisfy me, especially if they have to come up with some contrived explanation of how he has always been in the background even throughout the OT.

    • General Hux

      Shut up!! LOL!
