Last January Hasbro made an announcement that they wouldn’t show The Force Awakens toys at Toy Fair, and now they’ve repeated that announcement for Rogue One.
“We wanted to let you know that there will be no toys based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story shown at Toy Fair this year. While there will be a small selection of new Star Wars toys revealed at Toy Fair and in the days leading up to it, none of them will be directly based on the new characters from the upcoming film.
We know that there’s a huge amount of anticipation for Star Wars toys this year, and we wanted to be forthcoming about this as we know it might make a difference for some of you in regards to travel plans. We’re extremely excited for the year ahead and we look forward to working with each of you throughout the year.”
It seems like Rogue One is stuck in the same style of JJ Abrams Mystery Box that The Force Awakens was. This likely means we’ll probably see a Stormtrooper (likely the black Shadowtrooper) figure at SDCC and then nothing more until Force Friday in September.
