You didn’t need the Force to know Hasbro would be coming out with new toys for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, right? Hasbro has shared the initial line-ups for vehicles and playsets for the 3.75-inch scale, a wave of figures for Star Wars: Black Series in the 6-inch scale, and basic and deluxe figures in the 12-inch scale.
With their recent foray into super-articulated 12-inch figures for Marvel, I thought maybe Star Wars would follow suit with Black Series in 12-inches. But that’s not to be this time around.
No Bothans were harmed to bring us this press release.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in the US on December 6 this year, and LEGO will be there with LEGO Star Wars sets based on the movie. We’ve got the schematics for eight new sets. Many Bothans died to bring us this information.
While no official street date has been revealed, if past patterns hold, we should see these sets hit shelves in the 3 months before the movie release. And there’s this year’s Force Friday, aka Rogue Friday, which falls on September 30. So, use the Force!
We haven’t done an official AFP Free Stuff Giveaway in a while, but this one was worth the wait (if we do say so ourselves!) The Sith Lords at Hasbro were devious enough to send us a Dark Side-inspired, Jabba-sized pile of loot, and we are going to corrupt you with a chance (actually, five chances) to take it all for your own. After all, it furthers our nefarious goal of ruling the toy website universe.
You have until Friday, when the Force Awakens opens, to enter this giveaway. There’s a bunch of stuff included – check out the pics above and read on for how to enter and what is included. Remember – through power, I gain victory!
