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!
