Hasbro unveils first look at Rogue One figures

Hasbro has showed off its first Rogue One action figure at this year’s Star Wars Celebration event.

The firm showcased the Star Wars Black Series Jyn Erso action figure during Friday’s the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel at the Expo in London.

The 6” figure was revealed by Jyn herself (Felicity Jones), and presented by panel moderator Gwendoline Christie (Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Captain Phasma).

“I feel very privileged to have joined the Star Wars doll universe,” said Jones.

Having been hit with criticism around the lack of Rey toys for The Force Awakens, Disney stated: ‘Jyn will be represented across a variety of products – something fans will have to wait and see for themselves on September 30th, when all new Rogue One products launch globally.’
