The unfortunately named Hasbro Pulse beats rarely, but when it does we're in for a treat. Today it's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Introduces the Scarif Stormtrooper. You get a look at the three ranks of the trooper, and one wonderful little bit of confirmation:
"You can add the Scarif Stormtrooper to your collection right now with the Star Wars Universe 3.75” 2-pack featuring the Scarif Stormtrooper and Moroff. All three styles of Scarif Stormtrooper will be available in the 3.75” inch series in the spring. The Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader is available right now in our 6-inch Black Series. You can also pick up a 12” Shoretrooper next Spring."
There's no full-size Ziro the Hutt figure yet (just a Fighter Pods figure), but you can get his bartender! The R2-C2 is on sale at Entertainment Earth right now, it's an exclusive, and yeah I work there. So I'm biased. Do you need to get your drink on with a robot? Read on!
Hey kids, it's Darth Maul! In the far-flung futurey past of Star Wars Rebels, he retains his cybernetic lower torso and legs, but has once more lost his shirt. Poor guy just can't keep his shirt on. This is why Darth Maul is the Iggy Pop of outer space. Want to know more about this new figure? Read on!
The Seventh Sister Inquisitor was shown last February at Toy Fair and started hitting stores about a month ago - along with another shirtless Darth Maul, as is the style at the time. She has a miniature droid, a lightsaber, and a removable face mask. She also has the ability to fall over and has eschewed such elements as foot peg holes. Want to know more? Read on!

Walmart stores are often a frustrating and exciting source of exclusives and bundles in November. This year, the "we were told this was canceled" Rogue One Star Wars Titan Hero Series vehicle assortment arrived at Walmart in aisle dumps along with Poe/Speederbike, Stormtrooper/Assault Walker, and some Marvel Mask/Figure 2-packs. At $10 a whack they're spectacular values for kids and something collectors in 20 years - when Titan Hero Series becomes the Mego of this generation of children - cost more than a trip to the movies for your family. But hey, you can go get these now if you're lucky.
The lines aren't necessarily terrible in all locations, and if you're one of the many toy vampires out there the after hours shopping trip will do you more good than refreshing your social media feeds and postponing sleep another hour or three.

If you can't get enough pink in your action figure boxes, QT-KT is one you'll want. There aren't many pink figures in the thousands of plastic men and women in Star Wars, but here's one. It's based on the bartender droid mold, minus the bartender stuff. Also, Happy Thanksgiving. Read on!
This is the first Snowtrooper Officer to be made in Vietnam - and at first glance, it's just a deco variant. But it's not. This is an all-new sculpt - everything is basically in the same place, but the details, the textures, and the sizes of elements have changed. The height is a little different, and you'll notice some pretty significant changes on the bottom of the backpack. Check it out - read on!
It's the Death Trooper! Which is kind of a silly name for a government to employ for its military, but then again we also have a Death Star and such. It's a decent figure with a ridiculous backpack - and it comes in a two-pack with a cool alien. I assume you've bought yours by now. If not, read on!

Thanks to my pal Shannon once more, the droid R2-H16 is here in the office! He's at Disneyland and other Disney parks now for pennies under $13. He also has an all-new hat. You won't want to miss this festive fellow, as he'll likely disappear from the parks before the new year. Get yours, read on!
This week in Q&A - Stormtrooper variations - oh, the rich tapestry of flavor that awaits us all! R2-D2 anxiety - what should you do if you missed the first 6-inch figure? And future droid sets - what does hope look like? All this and more, little girl.
