WB Games has confirmed which characters have made the cut in the LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker by detailing the various DLC that will be available at launch and after release across three waves of release dates. While the information has been confirmed, the various dates might be confusing for some, with early access to certain DLC given with the deluxe edition of the game.
Reddit user Jtneagle has addressed this with a visual guide to the release dates (without early access) and all included characters in each DLC pack with a visual guide to the additional content for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
Note that a few of these minifigures are fan-made creations and not official, though all reflect designs of those characters in the Star Wars universe. That said, their in-game appearance may differ. Out of the seven character packs and additional purchase bonus, a total of 39 characters will be available as part of DLC.
Other than the Classic Character Pack and Trooper Character pack being available early to those who purchase the Deluxe Edition of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (more details here), the DLC will be launched in three waves.
Anyone who might have been confused by the initial reveal of the eight LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga DLC options can use the above visual guide to catch up on every additional minifigure that will be playable in the game. However, that eighth Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi DLC is only available to select pre-orders of the title and our pre-order guide can help explain more.
