Star Wars fans around the world are anxiously anticipating the next film, Rogue One, and today, Disney revealed some of the first toys based on the new movie.
Disney revealed the new Rogue One toys in a unique, novel way–by tapping the talent of Star Wars fans to #GoRogue and make fan-made stop motion videos of the new toys. You can view the first chapter of the video now with subsequent chapters coming out between now and the global launch of all products on September 30th.

The stories 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.

Keep reading for more pics and details on the toys coming from Hasbro. I really want to get my hands on the Black series Jyn (I wasn’t able to snag one at SDCC 2016) and K-2SO. I also love that the new vehicles fire Nerf darts instead of hard plastic projectiles.
