Members of the Elite Series Collectors group on Facebook are reporting* the discovery for 3 “new” Elite Series figures coming soon to Disney Stores in the UK (and the US). Soon, you be able to add Riot Gear Stormtrooper, Finn with Lightsaber and Squad Leader Stormtrooper to your collection. Also of interest is a slight packaging refresh for the line which looks to universalize the box to cut down the cost of printing, requiring only a sticker to differentiate each character.
Thanks to Corey for First Order Transmissions for the heads-up.
