Tomorrow marks this year's 'Force Friday' - the day on which merchandise for Rogue One begins to hit stores. Excitement has been somewhat subdued this time around, with no New Zealand retailers holding a midnight opening like they did for last year's release of Force Awakens products. Nevertheless, I'll still be out first thing in the morning to get my hands on some of these newest items.
As usual, my main focus will be on Hasbro's 3 3/4" action figure and Micro Machines lines. A short while ago Rebelscum.com posted scans of Hasbro's official Rogue One product guide, and after some careful consideration I've whittled my wishlist down to the following items:
- 3 3/4" Rogue One Sergeant Jyn Erso (Eadu)
- 3 3/4" Rogue One K2-SO
- 3 3/4" Rogue One 2-Pack: Imperial Death Trooper and Rebel Commando Pao
- 3 3/4" Rogue One 2-Pack: Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader and Moroff
- Micro Machines Deluxe Pack: Assault on Scarif
- Micro Machines Deluxe Pack: Fight the Imperial Might
- Micro Machines Deluxe Pack: Mandalorian Melee
- Micro Machines 3-Pack: Rebel Pursuit
- Micro Machines 3-Pack: High Speed Rebel Raid
While it seems we'll be getting the full first wave of 3 3/4" figures on Force Friday, it's unclear whether or not the new Micro Machines will be appearing at the same time. I guess we'll find out tomorrow!
