An action figure for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones) was revealed at Star Wars Celebration Europe on Friday evening. The figure is part of Hasbro's Black Series of high-end toys, and lists her on the box as "Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jodha)."
Jodha is the planet where many of our heroes in Rogue One will meet, they revealed in the panel. Chirrut and Baze (Played by Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen) are native to the planet, as is Riz Ahmed's Bodhi Rook. Erso was seen in the initial trailer on the Imperial-occupied planet fighting off some stormtroopers.
Guest host of the panel, Gwendoline Christie, presented the Jyn Erso figure to Jones, after talking excitedly about seeing her action figures for the first time. Jones said she was "very honored to join the ranks" of the toy community.
This is, of course, only the first toy for Rogue One, with many more yet to be revealed. Many of the other characters are sure to get figures as well, and if the toy explosion (which was incredibly successful) of The Force Awakens last year is any indication, there will be many more figures, vehicles, and tie-in toys of many sizes and styles released surrounding the film's debut on December 16, 2016.0comments
