Hasbro has put together their own “official” checklist to keep collectors up to date on the products available for the Rogue One launch. Click this link to check it out and see if you notice a few items not yet announced.
Friend Chris Pirillo has posted his first look demo of the new Rogue One Rapid Fire AT-ACT from Hasbro (courtesy of Disney). This item is not yet available in stores, but look for it later this fall. Head on over to his YouTube channel or watch above to check it out.
The unofficial “Go Rogue: A Star Wars Collecting Checklist” is now available for download. As additional information comes to light, we will amend the checklist and post a notice when a new update/download is available.
UPDATE: The third and final version (3.0) of the checklist is now available for download. Thank you to everyone who sent in store reports, links to eBay auctions and tagged us via social media as you, the fans, were instrumental in the creation of this list. Good luck to everyone heading out tonight!
Hasbro has confirmed via JediDefender, that the Nerf-firing Imperial AT-ACT WILL NOT be available at retail for the Rogue Friday/Force Friday launch on September 30. Look for it in stores and online later this fall.

Enrico writes in with a new store find today revealing the app-enabled Smart R2-D2.
I came across these at a local Walmart in San Diego this morning. I tried to buy the 12″ Rebels Vader but wasn’t allowed to. The remote R2-D2 was a surprise item. I haven’t seen it in any advance catalog. Looking at the box, it’s controlled via an app on Android and iPhone. Sorry I didn’t get pictures of the box.
You can download the app now to control the Bluetooth Smart R2-D2 via iTunes app store.
Our very own Justin “Chewie” stumbled across a product leak of his own at his local Walmart (Ballwin, MO) as a shelf of Rebel U-wing Fighters were placed early. They also scanned with no issue for $79.00.
Since the 6″ Black Series Hovertank Pilot leaked yesterday, people questioned if it was really an exclusive to Toys”R”Us as the packaging was missing the silver foil sticker. Now, eBay auctions have sprouted up and the sticker is present on those. This is not too dissimilar with what happened with the Exclusive First Order Snowtrooper Officer last year.
Thanks to Corey from First Order Transmissions/The Cargo Hold for the heads-up.
We ran into this news this weekend but @geektroooper on Twitter shares this excellent side-by-side image of two new Jakks Pacific exclusive 18″ Big-Fig packs hitting Costco stores. The Force Awakens set includes Rey, Kylo Ren and Finn and the Rogue One Anthology set includes K-2SO, Stormtrooper and Death Trooper. Both retail for $39.99.
