EntertainmentEarth is now taking preorders for the Wave 3 of Rogue One 3.75″ Action Figure “Versus” 2-packs which includes 3x repacks of the Baze/Stormtrooper set as well as 5x of a new set listed below.
3x SW R1 BASE MALBUS AND STORMTROOPER
5x SW SWU LEAD HB TAN AND V TROOPER COMMAND
The bold text is different than the Poe/First Order Stormtrooper set and since it is not labeled as “R1” is looks to be from another era of the saga. As soon as we learn more, we will update this story.
UPDATE: if past code names hold true for this set, “Lead HB Tan” should be Finn and “V(illain) Trooper Command” will be Captain Phasma as seen on display at SDCC 2016 via The Toyark.
As of 11:00am ET, Hasbro Toy Shop has opened orders for their convention exclusive 6″ Black Series figures.
UPDATE 1: Jyn Erso – Sold Out (11:11am ET)
UPDATE 2: Ben Kenobi – Sold Out (11:22am ET)
UPDATE 3: Kylo Ren (Unmasked) – Sold Out (approx. 11:45am ET)

Continue reading UPDATE: Hasbro Reveals 5 New 6″ Black Series Figures
Hasbro has updated their booth with a few more Black Series figures like Darth Revan and Sabine, but what drew our attention was the much-improved look of the 6″ Princess Leia Organa tweeted out by Hasbro themselves. A far cry from what was shown at Celebration Europe last week.
Last year’s SDCC was a bit of a letdown as product for The Force Awakens was kept heavily under wraps until Force Friday (and the preceding leaks). This year, it looks like the mystery box won’t be under lock and key as much as Hasbro is set to reveal new products from Rogue One starting tomorrow.

You can see Arnie’s exact quote on their Facebook page.
