New York Toy Fair has come and gone. A number of new Star Wars figures were revealed but nothing from this years’ upcoming film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, attendees got a brief glimpse of the new packaging for Star Wars merchandise. The packaging for all Star Wars merchandise will be based on the film (even if the merchandise is based on something from the other films).
Details on the new packaging are as follows:
- Packaging features the heroes in a “V” style group pose.
- Rogue One title is printed beneath the group shot.
- A large right-facing Darth Vader helmet is situated above the group shot to the right.
- There is some male character dressed in all white with what looks to be a cape. He is located in the lower right section beneath the group shot.
This sounds like a very interesting packaging. Most packaging for Star Wars merchandise has only had one character (Kylo Ren, Yoda, Darth Vader etc.) so this sounds like it will be something different.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled for release on December 16th, 2016.
Thoughts on this report? Are you excited for the merchandise from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?
