Hasbro has released an official image of the 3.75″ Galen Erso (Eadu) figure. Enjoy!
Yakface and Flyguy are back after the holidays and the release of Rogue One to ring in the new year with the latest in Star Wars collecting and news – including the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope. New, unannounced items have been hitting retail as well as huge clearances. This and much more on Episode 108 of The Realm Recap.
This week on TOY RUN, Criz Bee and Jake remember Carrie Fisher and her numerous Princess Leia action figures that have been released over the past 40 years. In addition, Jayson Krebsbach from Yakface.com stops by to reflect on collecting Star Wars action figures in 2016. Together they discuss how Hasbro treated the 3 ¾” and 6” Rogue One and Force Awakens lines. All this plus the latest in Star Wars action figure news from the last few weeks on Episode 41 of TOY RUN – The Star Wars Action Figure Cast!
A few days ago, Robot Kingdom posted a new case assortment of 3.75″ figures featuring a mix of Rogue One and Rebels characters that included Fenn Rau (Star Wars Rebels), Imperial Death Trooper Specialist (Rogue One), Admiral Raddus (Rogue One), Shoretrooper (Rogue One), Galen Erso (Rogue One) and Lieutenant Sefla (Rogue One). We have intel that this case is being cancelled.
Now, before the requests for Hasbro to be decimated from low orbit (like Scarif Citadel), we have heard that the figures themselves are not cancelled, so it just may be that the case assortment (figures included and number of each) is different than originally set. More as this develops….
On Episode 62 of The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X Podcast. Forest Whitaker himself refers to seeing 3 figures of his Saw Gerrera character, one from Rogue One (as part of the Jedha Revolt 4 pack), the Funko POP! figure and one from the animated series (Star Wars Rebels) which he misidentifies as The Clone Wars. Hear it for yourself at the 51:50 timestamp.
Thanks to @RobGower on Twitter for the report.
Death Troopers! Saw Gerrera! Maul! Obi-Wan! All this and more in the new mid-season trailer for Star Wars Rebels.
Robot Kingdom has listed the next wave of 3.75″ Star Wars Universe figures featuring new figures from Rogue One. This wave consists of Fenn Rau (Star Wars Rebels), Imperial Death Trooper Specialist (Rogue One), Shoretrooper (Rogue One), Admiral Raddus (Rogue One), Galen Erso (Rogue One) and Lieutenant Sefla (Rogue One).
No word yet as to which outfit Galen Erso will be sculpted.
The clearances continue as Target has started to mark down the 6″ Black Series Rogue One 3pk that includes Jyn, Cassian and Death Trooper Specialist. YMMV (Your mileage may vary) but clearances have been found from $41.98 to $29.98 all over the US. You’ll find the biggest discounts in metro areas that have the largest inventories on hand. Good luck and may the force be with you.
MedicomToy has announced the latest addition to their line of MAFEX (Miracle Action Figure EX) figures with the Rogue One Shoretrooper. Approximately 1/12 in scale, this figure includes the necessary components to convert the figure from standard Scarif Stormtrooper to the Squad Leader – very cool! It is available for preorder now from sponsor Big Bad Toy Store with an estimated availability of August 2017.
It looks like we may possibly see a running change to the upcoming Sergeant Jyn Erso (Imperial Ground Crew Disguise) figure as original solicitation imagery shows her wearing the commandeered helmet, while a new carded image as turned up showing it packaged separately. No official word on whether both will be available or if this is like the 6″ K-2SO “blaster/no blaster” production change.
Those who held off on pulling the trigger on the Rogue One AT-ACT, may want to start hitting Target stores as reader Mike M. found them marked down to $149.98 at his store. YMMV, but I’ve also heard that stores will be putting these on clearance December 26.
After hours of aggravation, I was able to get the damn Nerf mechanism on Hasbro’s new AT-ACT finally working.
I don’t even know exactly what I did to fix it, but I guess jiggling it around as much as I did after removing the head screws aligned something that was out of whack. Anyways, more details after the jump!
