I especially love the sort of long hair white Chewbacca alien in the clip.

We'll get a 3.75" and 6" figure of this guy, his backstory in magazines, but he won't actually be in the movie...   :P

The figure you're referring to is Constable Whitebacca.

So has there been any official confirmation of a Force Friday this fall, and when exactly it is going to take place?

I'm a little surprised that Target hasn't started to clean out its pegs in preparation for the August reset, new assortments, etc.  I know the 6" figs are keeping the same DPCI, but do we know if the 3.75" figs are keeping the same DPCI or going to something new?

September 30. As for the 3.75", he assortment numbers look to have changed so I would expect at DPCI reset as well.

Thanks Jayson. 

I guess Target still has plenty of time to clean out the old inventory before then.

I wonder with the DPCI not changing for the 6" figures if we might see some leak early.

I hope Target puts these on sale otherwise there will be a lot of 6" figures getting moved to make room for new stock.

A whole bunch of ROGUE ONE items got listed for pre-order on Amazon earlier today.  But several of them were listed using some of the code names that we've previously seen on some ROGUE ONE rumor lists.  And sure enough, word got back to somebody at either Hasbro or Lucasfilm, because the listings got pulled.  Per SWAN, these were some of the items that got listed (and summarily pulled):

Black Series 6-inch Figures
◦Princess Leia
◦Shark Leader
◦Shark Trooper (Yellow)
◦Tertiary Hero Droid
◦Seal Seer
◦AT-ACT Driver
◦Seal Weaponizer
◦Sabine
◦Obi-Wan Kenobi (From A New Hope confirmation the SDCC figure will be released regularly, without the extra accessories)
◦and, the best, Darth Vader


Also up for order is the new, big, AT-ACT vehicle!

More leaks via JTA

Moroff vs. Scarif Stormtrooper
Rebel Commando Pao vs. Death Trooper

The U-wing is actually huge!

Moroff was my most wanted from the Celebration reel so this is great. Amazing figure. The U-Wing is huge, but the troop compartment doesn't appear to be functional, at least from these shots. Great stuff overall. Looking forward to everything.

It would definitely be nice if there was some sort of troop space in the belly of the U-wing.  But since they didn't highlight the ventral side of the ship, I don't think it's going to happen.

Moroff looks very cool, and was definitely one of the cooler little gems from the Celebration sizzle reel.  And his general appearance along with a photo that leaked out during production has me wondering if the Wookiees factor in to the construction of the Death Star.

I definitely want to see some more images of the TIE Striker.  The crew compartment looks big enough that I think it's manned by a crew of two.

This is supposed to be Poe?  When did he ever wear this particular resistance outfit?

This is supposed to be Poe? 

I'm willing to overlook a lot when it comes to Hasbro 3.75" these days (price, articulation, distribution, etc), but that is one of the worst face paint ap/deco jobs I've seen on a 3.75" figure since the horrible eyes on the first wave of Indiana Jones figures. 

If they all look that bad at retail, I will be happy to skip the FO-Snow variant and "blink and you miss him" Poe 2-pack.

The Rogue One goofy monster/alien sets look pretty soild though.  No idea what the heck that Yeti guy is supposed to be, but he looks kinda cool.

Makes sense... I'm always scanning that shot for random aliens and droids in the background and never noticed.

The 3D blu-ray will have a deleted expanded version of that end scene where Poe puts on the big rocket launcher pack to blast the Snowtrooper officer that stowed away on the Millenium Falcon.  Finn says "That's one hell of a pilot!" again.

Then they kiss.  ;)
