One definitely fits for Rogue One

Absolutely!  We already saw the ERG's in the trailer.  I would love to see them mix it up, FWIW.  There's this rich "Legends" backstory for them about being this incredible unit of warriors.  But when it came time to actually see them do anything in ROTS, Yoda just levelled them.

I was actually thinking this one might be related to Episode 8.

I saw the code name Candy Man and immediately thought of Tony Todd.

I think these are all good choices, will definitely pick up another Royal Guard or two.

Packaged shot from Robot Kingdom - cool to see the ERG includes all the extra gear (yet another reason these will fly off the pegs).

Theoretically, yes. Though Hasbro "repacks" due seem to have slight paint app and color differences on occasion.

I must've missed the ERG the first time around since I don't recall the 2nd helmet and shoulder pads.

Here's hoping Hasbro re-releases the figures that were hard to find during their original release.

There's a chinese ebay seller that carries that alternate helmet. Because ebay sellers only have the helmets you don't need.  :(

Ideally they'd fix Ahsoka's need for an orthopedic shoe on her one foot...  I always hated that lopsided lean she had. 

People forget too easily that not everything was roses in the TVC either.  Amazing what a piece of cardboard can do to your perceptions. :P

IIRC, these were the last wave of TVC and were online only.  The sold out really quick.

TBS has been pretty good about giving us some hard to get TVC figures.  It's how I ended up getting Bastilla Shan for a reasonable price.

That online wave from the TVC line was VERY difficult to come by unless you ordered the full case.  I wanted to get at least 6 ERG's, and it was tough to just come by three of them.  So I welcome the ERG wholeheartedly.

The ERG and Ahsoka were both part of that last exclusive TVC wave.  The other two I still wonder why they were chosen ultimately.

Hasbro self-sabotage?

Retailer insistence? Wal-Mart loves Ackbar?

Online? Last wave? Geez, I need to start taking gingkoba 'cause I have no recollection of how I even got Ashoka.

Now that I think about it, I probably don't have Ackbar either.

The more my brain is exposed for the Swiss cheese it's become, the better this wave is turning out to be.
