Will spinoffs have a series all their own, like how Iron Man is his own series? I'm wondering if they'll go that route or one-and-done type deals.
The original plan I thought I read was to just do random, one-off movies. But, like everything else, if they stumble onto something that makes a bajilion dollars, I could see them making a "Rogue One 2".
You bring up an interesting point about potential for figures... Whatever they make, it'll be a pretty short run. There's a really small window for any retail line if the Episode 8 stuff will be hitting in March/April 2017.
I think I saw Jayson joking on Twitter about how Hasbro is taking/planning for all these movies... assuming they need a buffer in-between to clear out retail to make room for the next line, could we see something like:
Ep7 toy line = September 2015 - July 2016
Rogue One toy line = September 2016 - February 2017
Ep8 toy line = April 2017 - whenever the next stand-alone comes along
And people still think there will be a lot of room at retail for large PT/OT figure lines and Rebels and whatever else...? How this is all going to work is still the most curious part for me, aside from the scales and the prices.
