Hot - or cold - on the tail of last year's robot is the new R2-H16. This festive fellow has a hat with ear flaps, which is reason alone enough to buy one as 3 3/4-inch scale droids seem to have become the new Vinylmation as our hobby as concerned. The official Disney Parks site has a feature on this and other new items, including a Bluetooth Stormtrooper Commlink for your phone, new plush Ewoks based on the 1980s cartoons - seriously!, and other goodies.
From the new Rogue One line comes the Kanan Jarrus (Stormtrooper Disguise)! It's a new taller Stormtrooper sculpt with a removable helmet and a wrist launcher for some reason. It's actually pretty fun - and shortpacked, so get one or more if you see them. Read on!
Late last year, we saw the release of the RawShark Studios The Order Bobaran Action Figure. This sold out quickly, and was a $20 3-inch action figure that seems to almost perfectly color match Kenner's original 3 3/4-inch Boba Fett action figure. And it's pretty cool.
Since this is produced on the official timetable, you won't see some known-but-not-listed items like Wave 2 3 3/4-inch action figures, 2-packs, 6-inch figures, and so on. But what is on here may amaze you - a bunch of exclusives we've not yet seen! Read on to find out what you'll find in stores as the year goes on.
People love Sabine Wren. She's selling - I see cases of Rogue One figures at Big Lots or Walmart or what have you, and typically she's the one who's gone. If you see one, get one - find out why, read on!
The new Kylo Ren (Rogue One packaging) is pretty sharp - it's the unmasked figure with a mask. The hood is removable, it has the new pose with new torso and legs, and you're probably going to dig it. It has a firing projectile launcher too - why? Because it's fun, that's why. Read on!
Last week Hasbro dropped the first wave of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story action figures. At New York Comic Con, Hasbro revelaed some more 3 3/4-inch action figures from waves 2 and 3! Baze Malbus and a Stormtrooper Officer make up a new 2-pack. New single figures from wave 2 include Darth Vader and Chirrut Imwe. Future figures include Jyn Erso in an Imperial Ground Crew disguise, Bodhi Rook, and Admiral Raddus. We assume there is a rule all Mon Calamari must be Admirals.
Hasbro sent along new The Black Series reveals from New York Comic Con! Rogue One: A Star Wars Story releases await you including a new Darth Vader, Director Krennic, a Scarif Stormtrooper, Baze Malbus, and Chirrut Imwe. Neat stuff! Hasbro's photographers sure love negative space.
The Rogue One line is mostly new movie stuff, but returning favorites and the Rebels cast like Hera Syndulla put in a few appearances. This particular figure is an A-Wing pilot, and a pretty good one - but it's the Hera you bought before with a new head. Is that enough to warrant another purchase? It's a non-removable helmet, for what it's worth. Read on!
No really, the AT-DP Pilot is new, I swear! It looks just like the figure you bought a couple of years ago, but it's a different tool - the foot copyrights are different, the textures are different, he's a tiny bit shorter, and the deco and paint masks are changed a bit. The tint is different, too. It's packed with the just-released Imperial Speeder vehicle - a worthwhile purchase - but it's almost the very definition of a "just different enough to make you mad" figure. You might not even realize it's different without a side-by-side comparison, but don't worry - you've got one when you read on.
He's new! The 3 3/4-inch K-2SO (Rogue One) has a cool grappling hook accessory, but no blaster like his 6-inch counterpart. What does he have in the movie? I have no idea, I haven't seen it. But I have seen the figure, and the figure's ball-and-socket joints give him a good range of motion. And less stability. But he looks cool. Read on!
Hey, it's a new Imperial Stormtrooper! He has 5 points of articulation, blast-off armor, and one of the better sculpts we've seen in recent memory. The blaster is new and different, but the figure looks like a classic. Do you need to army-build this one? (Well, you would if there was a big playset to go with it.) Read on!
In the first teaser we briefly see what appears to be Jyn Erso wearing the Imperial Ground Crew outfit, and that's about all that we know about these guys. They look cool, and fit in with the existing Empire aesthetic. And they're in stores. Should you get one? Read on!
This Captain Cassian Andor comes with the new U-Wing Fighter, which may or may not be at a store near you - it would seem the Rogue One roll-out is something many retailers have almost started. The figure ain't bad, the ship is better than you might think, but it's not cheap - thanks, inflation. Want to know more? Read on!
