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?
The Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader is pretty awesome - and it's part of a great set. I'm seeing these around, so you should probably snag one when you see it. Just look at those colors! It's pretty fancy. Read on!
It's Moroff! He comes with a trooper you want, but is actually a pretty fantastic figure himself. He may have laughable hair, but it would seem that sort of thing is accepted as of late. He also includes a giant backpack cannon and a smaller - but still big - rifle. Read on!
This new Imperial Stormtrooper looks like how most people imagined Sandtroopers in the 1990s - most customs were just a shoulder pad on a Stormtrooper, and it was always orange. The configuration appered in Star Wars Rebels too - but this is the movie Rogue One version with an added ammo pouch. Swanky! Read on!
Baze Malbus is some sort of weapons expert in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The figure was designed accordingly with a massive backpack rocket launcher that may or may not be in the movie. I have no idea - all I know is that I have this figure in my hands and it looks pretty good. Read on!

It's Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha) from wave 2 of the 3 3/4-inch Rogue One line! She has a scarf, a blaster, a rocket launcher, and feels like she'd be right at home in the mid-late 1980s "off camera" world of Star Wars toys. If she couldn't pilot the ATL Interceptor, I don't know who could. But is she worth picking up - even with appearances in an upcoming gift set and vehicle? Read on!
Director Krennic is in charge of the whole Death Star construction thing and has a group of hangers-on called Death Troopers. As such, one might assume he's the new bad guy - the figure turned out fairly well, although maybe the cape isn't exactly what you wanted. It's still a nice figure. Read on!
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.

Happy Halloween! R2-B00 is - or was - at Disney theme parks as I type this for about thirteen spooky dollars. It'll be a beast to find them now that R2-H16 is shipping. I bet they'll skeleton of them. You could say it's pretty ghoul. Rather than torture more words in this intro, why not read on?
