Unlike the cloak and dagger tomfoolery surrounding the release of last year’s The Force Awakens toys, Disney and Lucasfilm are definitely on board with promoting the heck out of the Star Wars Rogue One toys far in advance of their release! And the latest company to get in on the act is one of the most beloved international licensees: the Bandai SH Figuarts Rogue One figures have now been revealed, including a Figuarts Death Trooper, K-2SO and more!Continue Reading →
And so it begins! Though Funko isn’t allowed to begin selling their Star Wars Rogue One POP Vinyls just yet, the veritable onslaught of Funko Rogue One POPs can now begin with the very first five vinyl figures in the line having been revealed today: Felicity Jones’ Rebel protagonist Jyn Erso and the movie’s villain, Director Orson Krennic, are joined by Funko POP K-2SO, Captain Cassian Andor and Chirrur Imwe figures!Continue Reading →
Well here’s some unexpected–and pleasant–news to wake up to! While only four Hasbro Black Series Rogue One 6″ figures from the movie will be available on Force Friday, Hasbro is being one-upped–by the Disney Store, of all places! The 6.5″ die-cast Rogue One Elite Series have been announced, with seven figures including three Rebels who won’t be available at launch from Hasbro…Continue Reading →
For months, fans have been speculating about the future of the Star Wars Black Series 3 3/4″ figure line that’s been a Walmart exclusive since last fall. SDCC 2016 came and went with nothing to report, but out of nowhere, some surprising news leaked from overseas today: four new 4″ Black Series figures are on the way to Walmart this fall! But while they’re new to the Black Series, the figures themselves are not exactly “new”…Continue Reading →
It was just yesterday I was discussing the Hasbro Rogue One figures two-packs Wave 1 and lamenting that we hadn’t seen any images confirming the single-carded Rogue One Wave 1 figures. But today, another leak sprung making yesterday’s complaints a moot point! A seller in Pomona, California has leaked packaged photos of all seven 3.75″ Rogue One figures that will be available on Force Friday… though not all of them are from the movie at all…Continue Reading →

Well, isn’t that just always the way…? After I posted my review of the exclusive Funko Maz Kanata POP Vinyl figure this week and complained about the lack of Maz Kanata toys in it, Gentle Giant just had to go and invalidate me by soliciting a new Maz product the very next day.
But hey, I’m honestly not complaining, because I love this statue–the Star Wars Maz Kanata mini bust is now up for order! And if you’re a PGM member, there’s even an exclusive…Continue Reading →
Because of the fact that Maz Kanata was a fully computer-rendered character and merchandisers didn’t have final reference materials for her until late in product development, we haven’t gotten much Maz merch to-date. In fact, Hasbro only released one 3.75″ Maz Kanata figure in a box set. But there’s one company that releases two figures of Maz Kanata–Funko! Let’s take a look at the Target Exclusive Maz Kanata POP Vinyl figure without glasses…Continue Reading →
After The Force Awakens toys and merch were handled last year as if they were national security secrets, I was expecting this year’s Rogue One toys to be handled much the same.
