If you're enjoying stomping the pavement to find R5-D4 at GameStops this weekend, good news - you can do it again in November! For a couple of bucks north of $20, the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot variatnt Inferno Squadron Pilot should be up for grabs in November. It's like the TIE Fighter Pilot you have but with more red.
The info just keeps rolling in! Hasbro's PR department informed us that Commander Gree is coming to Toys R Us as an exclusive. When? We don't know, but the 6-inch The Black Series figure looks pretty sharp.
More information as we have it - and it's nice to see the prequels getting some love out there.
Today's the day! Without too much fuss, Target's exclusive AT-ACT Driver has joined the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story DVD and Blu-Ray at retail today. It's worth noting Target has an exclusive deluxe Blu-Ray set with bonus content as well, and the price may vary. The tag said $29.99 but it rang up $27.99. Go figure.
If you want to see if the 6-inch AT-ACT Driver figure is in your area, check DPCI 087-06-1115.
This Sergeant Jyn Erso is pretty cool - Walmart's 3 3/4-inch super-articulated figure actually has a slightly different costume than the non-exclusive version. There's a missing jacket under her vest - this is one of the many costume changes in Rogue One. If you're on the fence about this figure, don't be - she's got a lot of articulation, a sniper rifle, and a unique costume - 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.
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!
It's here too! For $14.99 - and apparently not qualifying for the 20% off sale right now - the Star Wars Rogue One Cassian Andor and Stormtrooper Exclusive Figure Two-Pack is in stores now. As always, I found it in Phoenix, AZ and it was the last one at the store I visited. Good hunting!
The set includes Cassian Andor from the U-Wing fighter (with slightly better paint), a redeco of the single-carded Stormtrooper, Sabine's zipline, and more. That's a decent amount of plastic for $15.
Kohl's pricing is tricky - they're usually more expensive than other stores, but run promotions regularly that change the actual cost of the item. This year, they've got a swell Star Wars Rogue One Battle 4-Pack Figurine Set with a normal going rate of $49.99. Today, the base price was $34.99 when I placed my order not 10 minutes ago, and as of right now it's $39.99. It may well move again. I used the codes USA10 and VETERAN to get it down to under $25 with free in-store pick-up and sales tax - but again, that pricing seems to change, so be careful when checking out and check the coupon code sites. But why is this set different enough to make you mad?
Target's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Hasbro exclusive sets are in stores as of today. A 12-inch 6-pack, a 3 3/4-inch 7-pack, and a 6-inch 3-pack are there now. The Black Series set includes a repack of Jyn Erso along with a plussed up Imperial Death Trooper with more gear and the jacketed version of Cassian Andor. The Eadu head looks a smidgen better - but they're out there now if you need them.

The Entertainment Earth Exclusive Star Wars The Black Series Astromech Droids 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures Pack is IN STOCK NOW! 3 3/4-inches, opening body compartments with an arm inside, retractable third legs, and drinks. So many drinks. Order now - Free Shipping in the USA! Click here and get yours.
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.
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.

If you're planning on being at Disneyland or Disneyworld soon, a whole slate of Rogue One theme park products have been announced for September 30! The pricing is unknown, but click here to see everything. A new Droid Factory 4-pack brings you C2-B5 (new), R2-BHO (new), R2-M2 (new), and R5-SK1 - which looks a lot like R5-D4. I'll have the skinny for you when I (hopefully) pick up my set in October along with (hopefully) R2-B00.
Hasbro's PR team kindly sent along a press release with many new and some neewish exclusives! More are coming this fall, but for now, here's a look at what you can expect on (or around) Friday, September 30. None of the 3 3/4-inch figure exclusives are listed here, but 6-inch, prop replicas, Nerf guns, and more await you after the jump.
