Happy New Year to you all! We here at From4-LOMtoZuckuss.com have had a great year when it comes to not only Star Wars figure collecting but with Star Wars in general.

Jordan and Cody from jorcomedia.com, the team behind last year's Star Wars Celebration Fan Film Awards Best Comedy winner "Bounty Buddies", have written in to let us know they have dropped their latest stop-motion short film: Rogue One Half (A Star Wars Parody). The film which is perfectly timed with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story later this week, takes a look as the Rebels' attempt to defeat an AT-AT. A long time ago, before the Rebels had it figured out... Admiral Ackbar & Mon Mothma led the first attacks against the Empire. With the newly completed Death Star & fleets of AT-ATs closing in, the Rebellion knew that they must act fast, using every trick they know to save the Galaxy!

Thanks to our friend Chris Pirillo, Jake and a few fellow collectors were given early access to some Rogue One toys! This group unboxing includes many of the toys that were released this past weekend during Force Friday. The big exception, which was confirmed last week by JediDefender.com, was the walking Hasbro AT-ACT which will be released later this Fall.
The Disney Parks Blog has announced a multipack of new Droid Factory droids based on the upcoming Rogue One film. This set mirrors The Force Awakens set which was released last year in September as well. This set consists of four new droids; C2-B5, R2-BHD, R3-M2 and R5-SK1 and only one so far will also be released in the Hasbro 3 3/4" line. C2-B5 will be included in the upcoming Rapid Fire AT-ACT vehicle. This multipack is set for release on Force Friday and if like last year's set will be gone from the parks before the movie actually arrives in theaters on December 16th, 2016.
