Remember that smaller scale Millennium Falcon from Hasbro last year? Hasbro is issuing more vehicles in this “value” scale — one of which is the TIE Striker. As you can see, the vehicle is a tad smaller, lacks figure compatibility and (to some collector’s delight) the omission of the NERF firing features. What do you think?
Thanks to Corey from First Order Transmissions for the heads-up on the image.

In an interesting move, Funko has officially revealed the POP!s packed in the Smuggler’s Bounty “Rogue One” box coming in November: Jyn Erso (Eadu “Mountain Gear”) and the Imperial Death Trooper Specialist. Since this is an official announcement, we are not considering this reveal a spoiler since these figures are also shown on the back of the POP!s packed in September’s Smuggler’s Bounty as well.
Head on over to StarWars.com for the official announcement as well as an brief QnA with Senior Product Designer, Reis O’Brien.
You have until 11:59pm tomorrow night to order Funko’s Smuggler’s Bounty “Death Star” theme box for September. This month’s box includes TWO POP! figures so don’t miss out!

We are “going rogue” and producing an independent downloadable PDF checklist (similar to last year) to guide collectors through the toy aisles on September 30 and beyond. As of now, we are including most products announced (and unannounced) for Hasbro, LEGO, Funko, Jakks Pacific, Hot Wheels, and Disney Store.
And as last year, not all items will be available on Rogue/Force Friday, but in lieu of any of those brands providing anything “official”, we felt it would be in collector’s best interest to know what to expect/budget.

The coolest Star Wars collections are on ICE!
Over Labor Day weekend a group of Star Wars collectors from across the globe gathered in the Washington DC area for an International Collector’s Event–or ICE. Items were sold and traded, collections were put on display, and friends swapped stories. All while traveling through Virginia and Maryland visiting a dozen Star Wars collections!
Marjorie and Arnie were on-hand to see these impressive displays and talk to some of the other attendees. So kick back and enjoy this extra-cool episode of Star Wars Action News
Street date? What street date? We been getting several reports a day of Rogue One products hitting retail early. Today’s latest reports come from Pocky Bandit and Eric Saunders via Twitter. Pocky Bandit found the 6″ Black Series wave at Walmart and Eric found a few 3.75″ figures at Kroger.
Yakface reader Andrew S. writes in with this latest Rogue One retail find:
Hey guys, just wanted to drop you a line to let you know I was able to find a batch of Rogue One 3.75 inch figures at my local Kroger in Columbus, Ohio. I got Jyn Erso (Eadu) and K2S0, but they also had a Stormtrooper and an Imperial Ground Crew figure. I attached a photo of the ones I purchased.
Love your site, keep up the good work!
Thanks Andrew, and great find!
