While still not officially announced, "Force Friday" is expected to return on September 30th, 2016 to launch the new products tying into Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which hits theaters in December. Today, Jedi News revealed what fans can expect from toy company Hasbro when it comes to 6" action figures on Force Friday 2016. The list is mostly focused on Rogue One characters (for obvious reasons) with a few The Force Awakens favorites thrown in for good measure.
The figures will be (via Jedi News),
- Rey / BB-8 (Re-Pack)
- Kylo Ren (new mould)
- Rogue One: Jyn Erso
- Rogue One: Stormtrooper
- Medical Droid
- Rogue One: "Seal Team Male" - Forest Whitaker's character.
It does seem a little odd that there will only be three characters from Rogue One on sale, given that this event is suppose to be in promotion of Rogue One. There's always a possibility that the Medical Droid on the list is actually the Enforcer droid played by Alan Tudyk (via motion capture performance) and there has been some sort of mix up.
As always, this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm, Disney, or Hasbro.
