Now THIS is the kind of surprise news that I like to see! Straight from my friends at Disney/Lucasfilm comes the first installment of GO ROGUE, a series of fan-created shorts that serve as the reveal for the new toys from ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY (my most-anticipated movie and toy collection of 2016). The stories in GO ROGUE follow the adventures of “Rogue One” toys from Hasbro, LEGO, FUNKO, JAKKS Pacific, Mattel and Disney Store as they try to track down the building instructions to the LEGO Star Wars Death Star set which have been misplaced by the Empire. Check out the first episode, and all the vital details below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine!

Tonight during the Olympics coverage on NBC, the world got their first look at the latest trailer for Lucasfilm's ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. Directed by Gareth Edwards (GODZILLA), this is the first live-action feature to take place outside of the "episodic" STAR WARS Saga since the made-for-TV Ewok movies of the 1980s, and a very different type of STAR WARS film.  This is the tale of the Rebel Alliance and their small band of fighters mentioned in the opening crawl of 1977's STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE, the ones who must steal the plans to The Empire's dreaded new super-weapon, The Death Star.

Lucasfilm's ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is one of the most anticipated films of 2016, and one of the most interesting trips that fans have ever take to a galaxy far, far away. The first live-action theatrical film to take place outside of the numeric "Saga," Gareth Edwards' ROGUE ONE is a straight-up "war" movie set in the time period immediately preceding 1977's STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE, presenting for the first time, the tale of the Rebels who stole the plans for the Imperial Death Star. Launched September 30, 2016 and rolling out well into the winter months, a new collection of STAR WARS toys based on ROGUE ONE will hit retail, and while countless licensees will be in on the action, here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine we're presenting a series of STAR WARS Checklists, this one focusing on Hasbro's classic 3¾" action figures, vehicles and playsets (carrying on the tradition that Kenner started 40 years ago)- along with the ever-popular "Black Series" of collector-focused 6" figures and accessories. If you'd like to keep track of what's available or coming soon from these lines, this is the place to be!
