The unofficial “Go Rogue: A Star Wars Collecting Checklist” is now available for download. As additional information comes to light, we will amend the checklist and post a notice when a new update/download is available.
UPDATE: Version 2.0 is now available for download. Look for one last revision on Thursday of next week (Sept. 29).
Enrico writes in with a new store find today revealing the app-enabled Smart R2-D2.
I came across these at a local Walmart in San Diego this morning. I tried to buy the 12″ Rebels Vader but wasn’t allowed to. The remote R2-D2 was a surprise item. I haven’t seen it in any advance catalog. Looking at the box, it’s controlled via an app on Android and iPhone. Sorry I didn’t get pictures of the box.
You can download the app now to control the Bluetooth Smart R2-D2 via iTunes app store.
Our very own Justin “Chewie” stumbled across a product leak of his own at his local Walmart (Ballwin, MO) as a shelf of Rebel U-wing Fighters were placed early. They also scanned with no issue for $79.00.
Since the 6″ Black Series Hovertank Pilot leaked yesterday, people questioned if it was really an exclusive to Toys”R”Us as the packaging was missing the silver foil sticker. Now, eBay auctions have sprouted up and the sticker is present on those. This is not too dissimilar with what happened with the Exclusive First Order Snowtrooper Officer last year.
Thanks to Corey from First Order Transmissions/The Cargo Hold for the heads-up.
I just received a voice mail from GameStop stating that preorders for the Qui-Gon Jinn POP! figure from Funko have been canceled by the manufacturer. If you have one on preorder, your account should/will be credited the $5.00 down payment.
