Is this the first wave of Star Wars Rogue One Black Series figures?



We will only post news relating to Rogue One that relates directly to the Action Figures. Anything that we do post that can remotely be classed as a spoiler will be posted behind this banner first so fans can choose whether to click through / scroll down.

The following image has been circulated online and appears to originate at a Puerto Rico comic convention a few days ahead of San Diego Comic Con. It has since been followed up by a further image of 6 boxed figures.

The two images show 6 figures from the Hasbro Star Wars Black Series, four of which are Rogue One characters. One is a repack of the SDCC Kylo Ren and the final figure is a re-release of Rey from The Force Awakens, with (we assume) with her light saber. It is worth stating that Rey may just be in the boxed image out of context and has nothing to do with the first Rogue One themed wave.

We already know from our Star Wars Celebration coverage that Jyn Erso is down to be #22 in the Black Series packaging, and the unmasked Kylo Ren #26. It appears logical therefore that the other 3 figures will make up slots #23. #24 and #25 and one will probably be double packed. We would hope this double pack figure would be the Death Trooper. These should be the figures we will see hit stores on 30th September 2016 for Force Friday 2.
