Rogue One figure wants
« on: December 03, 2016, 04:52:34 PM »

Who else would you like to see as a figure that hasn't been announced yet? For me it's Rebel troopers. It looks like there are all sorts of Rebel troopers in this movie, with classic style uniforms and all new uniforms. Rogue One should be a Rebel forces troop builders dream, but so far there have been zero generic trooper figures announced. I hope Hasbro makes at least some of them before the Rogue One line ends!

This movies is packed with toyetic characters. There are so many kinds of troopers and aliens in the background. All the different Rebel soldiers. I'm afraid that what we've got is all we'll ever get seeing as Episode VIII was originally scheduled for May. As in, Hasbro may have planned for the Rogue One line to end swiftly so they could get merchandise out for 8. Hopefully I'm wrong, because I've got plenty of money I want to spend on Rogue One toys!

 even if it wasnt planned for May even Dec is close enough and these toy lines are a continious moving thing these days. backround obscure characters and all that is likely not going to happen unless it wins a pole or everyone bugs hasbro enough for a certain figure.

 it would be nice as im more into this movie/characters then i was TFA. their was some ok figures but looking back i could do without some of them now and i dont even have that many really.

Looks like we'll be getting the following Rogue One figures in 5POA 3.75" format:

Wave 3: Hitting now in the USA (soon in Canada):
- Bodhi Rook
- Imperial Death Trooper Specialist (same as the 2-pack but with the paldron)
- Shoretrooper/Scarif Stormtrooper (repack from the 2-pack)
- Jyn Erso (Imperial Ground Crew Disguise)

Wave 4:
- Admiral Raddus
- Galen Erso
- Lieutenant Sefla

Not so bad. Getting Lieutenant Sefla is an interesting choice, especially knowing how poorly the E7 Resistance Trooper performed at retail last year, but I'm glad Hasbro decided to produce at least one Rebel Ground Trooper. I would have definitely preferred to see a few more Rebels from the Rogue One ground force squad team, as well as Blue Leader General Antoc Merrick. Anyway, I'm sure we'll get some in a 2-pack before the Rogue One line hits the dust this Summer, as new stuff for E8 will be released in September.

My only hope is we'll get some more Super-articulated figures for Rogue One later this year. I would love to see a SA version of K-2SO, but doubt this will ever happen now. And something tells me we might also get a Cassian Andor in Imperial officer disguise in a 2-pack with a Stormtrooper. A peg warmer for sure, but Hasbro doesn't seem to learn from past mistakes...
