Jealous that you have Thrawn and Raddus. Ebay?

I got my R1 phasma/finn here - think it's same packaging. it's a good site, managed to complete my TFA singles there

some from the same set also available cheaper on group-on but no Finn/phasma

I say not included as apparantly these were released with Rogue One waves but how come they have different packaging?


All my Rogue One and TFA multipack that was the TRU exclusive.

From what I was reading tonight SAF sold out of their remaining 150 Gammy Guards in 30 minutes! I would of liked one but the cost puts me off. I know it’s not SAF bumping the price up but over £30!! :shock:

Why a TFA product with a Rogue One wave?

Postby Taffius » Mon Sep 03, 2018 7:49 am

I have been trying to understand why Hasbro roll out packaging from a previous line within another line wave. For example:

(Source: Jeditemple ArchivesVisual Guides, http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/star-wars-rogue-one/)

TRU exclusive TFA 6 pack. Released as a Multipack under Rogue One multipack group. Target exclusive Saga 7 pack is another example (but I do not have - it is a want).

Were they purely a "bridge" to Rogue One release or a deal between a toy retailer and Hasbro and one offs? Anyone know why Hasbro / Stores did this? Was it just shifting older stock under an exclusive banner?

Well Boston, Lincs HB only had Rey and Kylo black series and some hot wheels. Next door in TK Maxx there were some Hot Wheels too.

That was about it. A little pants to say the least.
