Toyguide Update: Rogue One Jedha Revolt Multipack

The Yakface Toyguide continue today with our next entry in the Rogue One 3.75″ basic figure assortment with Jedha Revolt multipack.

PROS: A marked improvement over the “Home Entertainment” set released for The Force Awakens, this set features 3 new figures with excellent sculpting and paint. Edrio and Saw are brand new for this set and are the most detailed of the 4 figures. Saw Gerrera is the highlight though featuring the most complex sculpt and a great likeness to Forest Whitaker. There are no superfluous pack-in weapons to clutter the set.

CONS: The benefits far outweigh the negatives for this set as repacking Jyn seems like an overcompensation to correct the “Where’s Rey” issues from 2015. It’s also unfortunate that this is the only to get Saw Gerrera and Edrio Two Tubes, but obviously better than not getting them at all.

Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.

Toyguide Update: Admiral Raddus

The Yakface Toyguide return today for our next entry in the Rogue One 3.75″ basic figure assortment with the Admiral Raddus figure.

PROS:  Overall sculpt and deco is fantastic with crisp details and decent color blending especially on the hands/forearms. Like the TFA Admiral Ackbar that came before it, Raddus features an articulated mouth to bark out orders to the fleet over Scarif. It works well and is reminiscent of a time when toys were toys. He includes a DH-17 blaster pistol which is oddly oversized, and a rocket firing rifle.

CONS: The incorporation of the movable jaw renders the neck immobile so the figure is perpetually stuck looking forward/up. As one of the final figures released in the Rogue One line look, this may prove to be a tough find as we approach spring/summer with the 40th Anniversary and The Last Jedi product on the way.

3.75″ Universe/Rogue One Wave 4 Assortment Reveals New Figures

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.

3.75″ Jyn Erso (Imperial Ground Crew) Variant

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.
