Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - TOYETIC

Star Wars generated an incredible amount of merchandise, so much so that deep into the 1980s you couldn't rummage around any kind of outdoor market without coming across a stall hawking action figures of the less exciting members of Jabba the Hutt's enormous entourage. You know the ones, your Gamorrean Guards, a Weequay or, if you were very lucky indeed, Lando Calrissian in his Tamtel Skreej disguise. Based on this trailer, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story feels like a film springing from that kind of starting point. Gareth Edwards (and whoever ended up helming the reshoots) armed with a toybox selection of the also-ran characters, all jetting off on their own adventure.
