Well it does look like in the scene where her and Cassian are in disguise, she is wearing her brown rebel boots.So Hasbro repainted a ground crew figures hands gloves to look like finger less gloves for jyn in disguise figure and repainted the boots to poop brown
doesn't make sense to me at all. I am sure hasbro doesn't make decisions based on what they hope customisers will or won't do. Any figure would sell well enough in wave 1 regardless.I'm not surprised they did it that way. They had to know people would buy more of the Ground Crew figure right off the bat for customs before they announced this version. I'm more surprised that they released Jyn (Eadu) before Jyn (Jedha). Already picked up an extra Ground Crew fig, so at least they saved me buying another Jyn - except for this one, of course
The ground crew figure is gender neutral. It can easily be male if you want it to be.doesn't make sense to me at all. I am sure hasbro doesn't make decisions based on what they hope customisers will or won't do. Any figure would sell well enough in wave 1 regardless.
If they wanted to do a Ground Crew figure, why not do a regular male trooper? Instead they have done two Jyns in disguise, one without a removable helmet.
well yes, and I have been saying that, we don't know that there aren't female Ground Crew. And for this part of the story to make sense, there would need to have been a female Imperial Crew, cos Jyn would look ridiculous in a bigger uniform. However, I do think it's more likely that Hasbro is just being lazy. We'll see.Just playing devils advocate, do we know that's the case with them? Perhaps they are all female, perhaps short height is part of the job description.
Of course there's always the obvious, Hasbro underscaled them because they are lazy.
Ok, so maybe late Jan or Feb then. Do you think Wave 3 will be the last wave for Rogue One? Upcoming characters that we know about:I think Wave 3 is going to be after the release the movie similar to the Resistance Rey wave from TFA
I would hope there are a few more waves. It's tough to say, TFA seemed really light on figures to me, I don't know if it was planned that way or they just ran out of time. I hope R1 has a good 3/4 more waves?Ok, so maybe late Jan or Feb then. Do you think Wave 3 will be the last wave for Rogue One? Upcoming characters that we know about:
* Jyn Imperial Disguise
* Admiral Raddus
* Bodhi Rook
* Deathtrooper Specialist
* Scarif Trooper
* Fenn Rau
* Admiral Thrawn
This makes 7 which the waves have consisted of so far. Is this the final figures for this line or is there another yet to be revealed wave?
Unfortunately, I think we've seen just about everything we're going to get from R1. With the possibility of one or two more surprise figures. We have to keep in mind, that Hasbro has already said this line would have less offerings. So far they are on par with that. The only question is, how much less product are they talking about?
TFA has 29 basic figures, and R1 will be just about half way there with wave 3.
Hopefully, just as the Rogue One waves contained Rebels figures and Force Awakens figures, we'll see a Rogue One character or two pop up in other lines.
you are probably right, but I hope not. I really hope not. From the trailers alone there are a few cool rebels that are essential, as well as variations for the main characters. And when we see the film there will be tons of figures that we are crying out for. But there won't be much opportunity to do many more. I am hoping Hasbro can squeeze in a few spring and summer waves before Ep VIII.
Its like trying to get TFA at this point. I cant imagine many TFA figures coming out at this point. I am sure we will see the odd one or two, but not many. And when we do, its likely to be a main character variation. So the chances of us getting some of the background characters are VERY slim. Its a shame, but after spring I just think there will be no R1 figures coming aside from the odd figure. If we dont get Blue Leader and a Rebel Soldier or two in the spring, then I dont fancy the chances at all.....Hopefully, just as the Rogue One waves contained Rebels figures and Force Awakens figures, we'll see a Rogue One character or two pop up in other lines.
But, then again, maybe not. Maybe Hasbro felt they needed to flesh out Rogue One with figures from other parts of the franchise since Rogue One is considered a placeholder between the main saga films.
