The figures look cool.  But those accessories look...bizarre!

The Maul 2-pack looks incredible, for sure. They nailed both those characters. I'm not sure I like how they interpreted his giant explosive backpack though. The one I recall from the episode was more non-existy.  :D

Yeah, you think maybe they could've done an exaggeration of the helicopter saber thing for an action accessory, but nope...gotta go blaster pack

If you have the Reaction Buffy you can have her fight Seventh Sister for that Sarah Michelle Gellar vs Sarah Michelle Gellar action.

A store near me had the whole assortment of 2-packs out today.  I definitely liked the sets with Pao & the Deathtrooper and the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader with Moroff.  As for the Poe Dameron & FO Snowtrooper Officer?  Man, that likeness on Poe is just bad.

Well, I got the sets with Pao & the Deathtrooper and the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader with Moroff to the registers.  I even tried self-checkout on those plus a 3.75" Black Series Emporer's Royal Guard.  But when I scanned them there was an error message.  And the clerk who helped me took them and said "These have been recalled".

Also erroneously on the pegs?  6" Black Series Jyn Erso, Hera's A-Wing, and whole bunch of R1 Hot Wheels.

My God you heartless bastard, think of the kids!!  :D

Every time a SW fan tries to buy a Rogue One toy early, Babay Jesus cries.  :'(

Seriously though, how much was the A-Wing?

The A-Wing is $29.99, I think... saw shelf tags a few days ago at a Walmart and I think that was the price.

I fully expected the possibility of getting shut down. I didn't even bother to argue, because it wasn't worth it.  I can just go back to the same store on Friday. 

I just found it annoying that they put that much new stock out without heeding the street date instructions on the cases.

I can relate!

Not so much with Rogue One product, but back in the Legacy era, I was losing my mind because two Walmart stores in my area kept putting out AT-TEs and other vehicles but would not sell them.  They kept taking them from me at the register, then the next day, they'd be back on the shelves!

I did end up getting the AT-TE and Homing Spider droid early though thanks to manager overrides as she saw this happening and understood my frustration.

I think if it was something as cool as the AT-TE, I would've probably been in the same kind of mindset as you, CHEWIE.  But for 5 POA figure 2-packs?  There's a distinct dropoff in enthusiasm that directly correlates to the quality of the figures & toys that we're getting now.

Anybody know if the Deathtrooper in the two pack is any different than the Deathtrooper that is carded on its own?
