This is the ROGUE ONE - Black Series 6" Jyn Erso figure that was shown during the ROGUE ONE panel.

That Jyn figure looks really nice.

Is Jedha the beach planet?
Don't even act like I didn't buy that doughnut...I got the documentation right here...

I don't think Jedha is the beach planet, but could be wrong. I think the figure is great, likeness isn't exact but close. Surprised they're continuing the current red/black color scheme and numbering (apparently). Looks good, so no complaints. Looking forward to the rest.

The name of the planet "Jedah" seems like it could be important.  Especially considering some of the rumors surrounding a plot point in the movie that the Empire is mining Khyber crystals (the same crystals Jedi use in their lightsabers) for the purpose of powering or focusing the beams of the Death Star's super-laser weapon.  Rumor also has it that the hover tanks are transporting some of these crystals in the large orange crates, and the AT-ACT's are employed in transporting some of these crystals or other weapons components as well.  So could "Jedah" be some sort of planet that was important to the Jedi?

Looks like something is afoot as the pics aren't there.

Saw 'em earlier...  Cool looking figures.  6" guys get all the love. :)  These looked really good I thought.

Some of the first wave of ROGUE ONE themed BLACK SERIES 6" figures have leaked and there are some video reviews of those figures which have been posted to YouTube.  Check them out at the links below:
TFA22 - Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha)
TFA23 - Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu)
TFA24 - K-2SO
TFA25 - Imperial Death Trooperr


The (Eadu) notation with Cassian Andor makes me think that we have a third planet in the mix for ROGUE ONE.  We've already seen a good deal about Jedha, along with the tropical planet Scarif.  I think that Eadu is probably the name for the planet that was a location shoot in Iceland, with the volcanic rock surface.
