Looks like the first product leaks for Rogue One are starting to hit the street as Instagram follower @jedi_skywalkerr posts an in-hand pic of Wave 1 which includes Jyn Erso (Jedha), Cassian Andor, Imperial Death Trooper, K-2SO, Kylo Ren (Unmasked) and Rey with BB-8 (lightsaber variant).

Hasbro Design Director Steve Evans has replied via or Instagram page regarding the complaints of the 6″ Princess Leia figure on display at Celebration Europe.
“the Leia figure shown at SWCE is a pre-production ‘first shot’ and is not final deco. We are addressing the delicacies of lips, eyes and eyebrows. The hood is also not stitched as it will be in final product.”
EW.com has revealed two new 6″ Black Series exclusives set for release at Celebration Europe and SDCC. The first is Kylo Ren with alternate “unmasked head”, Vader’s charred helmet and First Order banner ($34.99).
