Could there still be SDCC Hasbro exclusives to reveal, and where does Rogue One fit in?

Over the course of the last week we have seen three brand new 6 inch exclusive sets revealed by Hasbro. Unmasked Kylo Ren will kick the ball rolling at Star Wars Celebration next week. He will then join A New Hope Obi Wan and an Astromech 3-pack at SDCC. Obi Wan will then of course cross the channel to the UK for the London Film and Comic Con.

But is that everything? Well we suspect there may still be "something" up Hasbro's sleeve for SDCC.

Let's remind ourselves of the comments made at New York Toy Fair in February 2016 at the Hasbro Panel

"the Rogue One series will make its debut as an exclusive figure at San Diego Comic-Con this July" - Comics Alliance

"During the Hasbro panel it was revealed that the company will exclusively release a Rogue One action figure during the San Diego Comic Con. No more details were given on that mysterious figure" - Star Wars News

"Among the figures listed for 2016 is a SDCC Exclusive -Rogue One Secret Figure". - The Force.net

Now of course things do change and Hasbro may have had this planned and then pulled the plans, or indeed had them pulled or amended by Disney.

But then there is this Twitter conversation last night from Randy Falk at NECA, who we know to be a collector of the Star Wars Black Series and Marvel Legends. The tweets indicate that Randy is aware of a Marvel Legends 6" exclusive and "others".

What that means ultimately is yet to be seen, but I wouldn't be surprised if a further Black Series exclusive pops up in the coming 2-weeks.

If we follow the pattern laid down by The Force Awakens with the First Order Trooper at SDCC 2015 - then if we do get a Rogue One exclusive, I wouldn't be looking much past this guy in the Convention Black & White packaging - and then seeing him in the regular line come the mass release on Force Friday II
