Hasbro kindly shared with us the press release of retailer exclusives coming for the end of this year for Star Wars Rogue One. If you follow us on Twitter, all but a few of these have been well spotted already but nice to see hi-res pics. R2-D2 mentioned ion here but don't take that as definitive proof of him being in the movie. No mention of the EE, black series multi colour trooper pack but more on that in time.
