Over the twenty-five years fans have seen huge changes in Star Wars licensees and merchandise, as well as a fair amount of waxing and waning of interest in the fan base as two trilogies came into being, and so Rebelscum is wistfully casting a glance over its shoulder and reviewing the last quarter of a century of Star Wars collecting.
Disney has stepped up its media campaign to build up hype for their next Star Wars installment, and in conjunction with , has revealed images of a number of upcoming Rogue One toys. Included is the 75155 Rebel U-Wing Fighter from LEGO, Hasbro's Jyn Erso and Death Trooper action figures, Funko's Director Krennic and one of the Hot Wheels Starship two-packs. Accompanying this media blitz is a dastardly clever mini movie. Hang on right through the credits and treat yourself - and make sure you come back to Rebelscum tomorrow at 10am EST for more Rogue One exclusive reveals.
