It might be several months until we see the first Star Wars: Rogue One toys in stores, but an early report reveals the figures that will be included in the first wave. Some of the toys will be from the new movie, while other characters appear in older films.
According to exclusive report from Jedi News, Hasbro already has an early plan for the first wave of Star Wars: Rogue One Black Series figures. All of the figures named will be available on September 30th, 2016 which is this year’s Force Friday event.
The Black Series figures include: “Rey / BB-8 (Re-Pack), Kylo Ren (new mould), Rogue One: Jyn Erso, Rogue One: Stormtrooper, Medical Droid and Rogue One: “Seal Team Male” – Forest Whitaker’s character“.
Bear in mind, Hasbro’s plans could change between now and September but this seems like a legitimate lineup for the first wave of action figures. Hasbro and Disney usually hold off further figures until closer to the release date for the movie to avoid spoilers.
If we manage to buy any of the Star Wars: Rogue One figurines early this year, we’ll be sure to try and review some of them. Several figures last year were sold out due to the high demand. Some unfortunate folks left without any toys in last year’s Force Friday events.
