There is one glaring absence in a certain crew of rebels that will be filled sometime in late 2019. If you’ve followed along with some of the other rumor articles or through various Black Series groups on Facebook, you’ll know the answer. If not, you won’t have to go far.
After some additional UPC searching on Brickseek, here are the details for the two upcoming deluxe packs in wave 2 of the Force Link line that were leaked last week via ToysRUs.ca
“E8 Fxtrt 2 Blk Delta 1 Victor Delta 1”
Includes Rose in First Order Disguise, BB-8 and BB-9E
Walmart SKU: 954528985
“R1 Seal Seer and Seal Weaponizer”
Includes Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus
Walmart SKU: 244975093
Both packs retail for about $14.99
UPDATE: Images for Rose and Droids added.
A new exclusive Deluxe “Vs.” set has popped up on Toys”R”Us.co.uk featuring Captain Cassian Andor and an Imperial Stormtrooper Officer. The Cassian is repacked from the U-Wing Fighter and the Stormtrooper is a repaint of the single carded basic/universe figure.

Thanks to MNA for the heads-up.
UPDATE: This is confirmed for a US release as well via Hasbro’s Official Collectors Checklist
Here are some new images for the second wave of Deluxe “vs.” pack coming in the Rogue One line. Click on through to check out Baze Malbus vs Imperial Stormtrooper and Darth Maul vs. Seventh Sister Inquisitor!
PROS: Hasbro surprised the collecting community when they announced that they’d be tackling “beasts” in the 6″ scale and they got things very much right with Jabba. The sculpt is the best likeness yet with exacting details in the skin – right down to the obligatory tattoo. Hasbro also added a fun bit of interactivity as you can recreate Jabba signature belly laugh by way of rotating the arms up and down to open and close the mouth. Unfortunately, you’ll have to supply the sound effects yourself.
CONS: For an original retail price of $40 (US), this seems really overpriced and overwhelmingly bland when in its retail packaging. Many collectors found themselves frustrated in that the support accessories were only available through the SDCC exclusive. Tough to argue with those sentiments.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
