Rogue One / TRU 3.75" Rogue One Cassian Andor vs Stormtrooper 2-Pack
« on: October 13, 2016, 12:06 PM »
One last thread to add this morning (for now). 

Looks like a repack of the U-Wing pack-in and a repack of the basic figure Stormtrooper with repaint accessories.  Pic from TRU UK site (via Yakface

Rogue One / TRU Exclusive TFA 3.75" Battle Figure 6-Pack
« on: October 13, 2016, 12:01 PM »
Another exclusive confirmed by Hasbro's Rogue One Product Checklist...  no pics yet though.

Rey vs Kylo; Poe vs TIE Pilot; Finn vs FN-2199.

Not sure if this is like three 2-packs packed together or what.  It would be great if the Kylo in the set is the "Ben" maskless head version.  That would be a nice way for those missing him or the Riot Control Stormtrooper aka FN-2199 (aka "TRAITOR!" guy) to finally nab them.

Rogue One / TRU Rogue One "Battle Damaged" TIE Striker

Hasbro has confirmed that TRU will be getting a variant deco 'Battle Damaged' TIE Striker...  no pics yet though.

We stand on the cusp of a new season.....  and I gotta tell you, I'm a bit worried for my squad.

Will the maigc of Bruce Boudreau help us make the playoffs?
Will the Avs finally get a clue with their new coach?
Have the Jets finally figured out Pavelec is bad (put him on waivers today)?
Will STL implode or finally live up to the hype?

Central Division dogfight again this year.  So many good teams, so many teams on the up and coming... and then my squad still trying to figure out which they are and hoping they are not the one falling to earth to make room for the "young and hungry" Jets or "glad to be rid of Roy" Avs.  :-\

Rogue One / 2016 New York Comic Con
« on: October 5, 2016, 05:21 PM »
Looks like we don't have a thread for this yet...

Tomorrow is Hasbro's panel at NYCC.  Should be interesting to see if there is any more that will be revealed before the movie... definitely sounds like there is more 3.75" and 6" in the pipeline, just a matter of when they are going to reveal it.

2016 NYCC Panel details:

October 06, 2016, 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM (ET)
Room 1A21
Join members of the Hasbro Star Wars team as they discuss the ever popular Hasbro Star Wars line that hit shelves this fall! Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro's latest action figure offerings with a look at new product coming later this year.

Rogue One / Kohls Rogue One 3.75" Box o' Variants
« on: October 2, 2016, 11:32 PM »
Another one for the "did we really need that?" file.

Kohls has an exclusive box set that has some deco vaiants of four figures from the Rogue One 'versus' 2-packs.  Like a poo dirt splattered Deathtrooper and a White Pauldron Stormie (repaint of Orange Pauldron Stormie that is packed with Baze in Wave 2).

Clicky the thumbnails below for a closer look.

Rogue One / Target Exclusive 3.75" Star Wars Saga 7-Pack
« on: September 30, 2016, 11:33 PM »
Adding this for the sake of completeness, knowing no one really cares -  :P

Star Wars Saga 7-Pack
DPCI: 087-06-6400

A 7-Pack that includes 8 repacked figures from previous 5POA lines, one per movie with a bonus BB-8 tossed in apparently, for just $40.  A really nice set if you have a need for it.

No details on when, but looks like this is confirmed.  Image thanks to Imperial Holocron on twitter:

Rogue One / Rogue One "Jedha Revolt" 4-Pack
« on: September 30, 2016, 10:24 AM »
LOL, movie is months away and The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog already has a look at the 4-pack that will go along with the DVD/Bluray release (like the Maz Kanata 4-pack last year)

Based on the pic, looks like this will be something that will be shown/revealed at NYCC in October.  Pack includes Jyn (Jedha), Saw Gerrera , Imperial Hovertank Pilot, and Edrio Two Tubes.

Black/Red Box Black Series Wave 9 or Rogue One Wave 3 or whatever we're calling it - it's up for pre-order at EE:

Once again, Leia is in the case assortment, which may or may not be correct based on the rumor mill...


Looks like it's a 4-pack of ROTS troopers - they started teasing it today and will put it up for pre-order on Saturday, 10/1.

Looks like another retailer exclusive has leaked ahead of time - picture from Twitter (via @Yak_Face):

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 6
« on: September 16, 2016, 01:20 PM »
As you may have seen on Twitter, there was a Hasbro google hangout today in which some of the fan sites participated.

Hasbro didn't exactly announce the contents of Wave 6 there, but they did confirm it's existence by saying there would be TWO waves this Fall.

Wave 6 should be the first to have Rogue One SA 3.75" figures - and YES, there will be some.  So buy up the 5POA at your own risk... ;)
