Rebelscum forum member “Nighthawk” has posted new images from the packaging for Hasbro’s Rogue OneU-Wing and TIE Striker vehicles that shed light on the NERF launching features of both fighters. It appears that the launcher for the U-wing is retractable (not removable) and the TIE’s is a fixed position cannon. These were found at retail in Canada ($59.99-$69.99).
Also, try to pick which eye to look at when staring at the Cassian Andor figure. :/

I placed my first order last week, and already received them today. And I have to say, these might be the most exciting thing to happen to the hobby for me… since… heck, I don’t even know that I have EVER seen something this fantastic for displaying a collection.
My son (age 9) and his friend (age 8) went bonkers as well wanting to set them up. Pretty damn cool… hopefully we see a lot more out of these guys as for many of us, this could be a game changer in collecting.
You can check out a few pics that I snapped here, and be sure to visit their site – and place an order as they have some currently in stock as of this post.
