How Low Can They Go?

If you have a Gordmans store in your area, the Rogue One AT-ACT has been marked down to $49.99.  So if you’ve held off on getting this, or looking for a fun Christmas present at a good price,  you may want to pick this up if you are able to.

Personal Note:  If Hasbro had not over-engineered this thing with the app, walking feature, Nerf, etc… and had instead made it more on par with THIS, it would have performed much better for retailers.   What say you?

Update: Rumor Report: Force Friday 2019

While the final cinematic chapter in the Skywalker story draws to a close in December 2019, there will (once again) be a huge marketing push and global launch for products for Episode IX. Rumor has it that this date is set a bit closer to the film launch than the previous installments — October 4, 2019. Barring leaks and official early first looks and preorders, this will be the hard street date for the copious amount of licensed products (toys, books, clothing, etc.) from not only Episode IX but from other sources throughout the franchise as well.

And yes, you can expect us to assemble our downloadable “unofficial” checklist for this event as well.

UPDATE: also of interest, Star Wars will be sharing a merchandise launch date with another popular and highly anticipated sequel. If you have young kids like I do, hopefully that won’t cause your bank accounts and credit cards to be Frozen, too.
