It does seem a little odd in that we got several new vehicles from TFA, including some that didn't even make the final cut, yet we're getting none from Rogue One.

Remember, when the Rogue One line was initially planned, Episode 8 was coming in May 2017.  Rogue One toys had a small window, which is why the line isn't so expansive.  Maybe they were worried about a small release windo in case new Ep8 Class 2 would be needed?

Seems like a strange omission (and a sorely missed one) but it seems to be a casualty of the whacky shifting timelines of Ep7-R1-Ep8.  :-\

I think it's the short window...  Only so much time, like Jeff said.  Plus those TFA ships but them in the ass with having limited info to go on.  Then they're cut and you're sol.  Like Zuvio for that matter.  I'm sure they reevaluated how they're rolling things out going forward.

Lots of good info there!  I wish it had been better publicized, because I would've liked to have seen it live.

It wasn't live. It was a private hangout/conference call.

No hover tank?

Should not be surprised. Collecting Star Wars lately has been pretty tankless.

Oh.  Still, not a bad way to hold a press avail.

Bummed about the Hovertank.  But when have we ever gotten every vehicle in a movie in one shot?

That's what they're saying in Dublin.

No, but it seems in the action figure line we are getting 3 vehicles from Rogue One.  With 2 from REBELS, and one of those is a repaint. 5 new vehicles in a movie year is light.

Well, Hasbro does seem to be hoping that we're going to be buying this $300 AT-ACT.  And that's just not happening for me.

But there is this possible 6" vehicle rumor that's been circulating.  That one has me a little curious.

Considering they seem to be waiting for spring to announce/show this hypothetical new 6 inch vehicle, it's probably from ANH. If so, most likely the X-Wing. Maybe a Imperial TIE, but I'd rather see something different.

Not a rumor, but a general report - Hasbro Pulse today confirms that all three Scarif Stormtrooper ranks will get 3.75" figures by the spring.   Good news!

Scarif Stormtrooper
- Rogue One 3.75" basic figure wave 3
- Walmart 3.75" Black Series wave 7

Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader
- Rogue One 3.75" figure 2-pack wave 1 (with Morrow)

Scarif Stormtrooper Captain
- TBD

Seems like an easy repaint for the 6" line too.

I maintain the Captain will show up with Bistan in one of the two packs.

The Shoretrooper Captain/Bistan pack is a really, really safe bet at this point.  :-X

Hopefully it's not hard to find. All of the RO two packs are piling up high around here.
