Another midnight product launch has come and gone, but the news is not over as we are back this week to discuss the latest developments in Star Wars collecting. Rogue Friday proved to be a more subdued, but more satisfying experience for many this year as stores seemed to have a good amount of merchandise to satiate needy collectors. Flyguy and I discuss our experiences as well as several announcements that came in the hours before and after Sept. 30. Enjoy the super-sized, and wallet draining Episode 105 of The Realm Recap.

Toys”R”us is running a Buy 1, Get 1 40% off sale through October 8 on all 3.75″ action figures and vehicles. This is a good time to stock up on army builders and some custom fodder this price… and even take the plunge on some vehicles, if you can get over the NERF features.
Kotaku.com has posted an exclusive article revealed even more exclusives coming to Walmart, Target, Kohls, Toys”R”Us and Walgreens. Head on over to check out the Walmart 3.75″ Black Series Rogue One Wave featuring Scarif Stormtrooper, Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor and Death Trooper Specialist, Walgreens Exclusive 6″ C-3PO and much more!

The Yakface Toyguide with our first Rogue One entry: the Toys”R”Us Exclusive 6″ Black Series Imperial Hovertank Pilot.
PROS: Rogue One looks to have an extremely diverse range of Imperial troops in their ranks and Hasbro’s Hovertank Pilot an excellent interpretation of one of them. Unlike the lanky Deathtrooper, the Hovertank Pilot has a stockier build and a battle-warn appearance. Hasbro went above and beyond in giving this figure an in-universe look with a nice wash on the off-white armor complete with scuffs and scrapes. The articulation is what we’ve been accustomed to for this scale so the figure has no problem being posed in a wide and varying range of stances. He has no issue holding the new blaster with both hands in either a relaxed or aiming posture.
CONS: The jury is still out whether or not the accuracy of the deco for this trooper is correct as we’ve only seen brief glimpses of the pilot in the trailers. If not, I suppose the door is left open for a screen accurate repaint in the future. This figure is exclusive to Toys”R”Us starting on Sept. 30 so he might be difficult to find initially.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
As promised, Hasbro has unveiled a few of their exclusives for Rogue Friday next week – two of which have leaked prematurely.
