SDCC 2016: Rogue One Figures To Be Revealed Tomorrow

hasbro_rogueone_mysterybox
Last year’s SDCC was a bit of a letdown as product for The Force Awakens was kept heavily under wraps until Force Friday (and the preceding leaks). This year, it looks like the mystery box won’t be under lock and key as much as Hasbro is set to reveal new products from Rogue One starting tomorrow.
