Felicity Jones Sees Her ‘Rogue One’ Action Figure for the First Time

Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma) inducted Rogue One‘s Felicity Jones into a very exclusive club when she gave Jones her very on action figure of  her character, “Jyn Erso,” from the upcoming Star Wars film Rogue One during Star Wars Celebration in London on Friday, July 15th.

“This is actually the very first toy being revealed from Rogue One,” Christie continued. “It’s not as good as mine.  But, you know, it’s great nonetheless.”

Although she likely knew it was coming, Jones was visibly pleased when the figure was unveiled. “She’s got a pretty cool ‘Han Solo’ gun-belt,” she beamed.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens on December 16, 2016

Batgirl Joins “Batman: Arkham Knight” Action Figures

Square Enix announced that Batgirl will be the next to join their hyper-detailed Play Arts Kai line of action figures from the video game Batman: Arkham Knight.

At 10 inches tall, Batman: Arkham Knight Batgirl comes with an articulated hard-plastic cape, interchangeable hands, a Batarang, a grapnel gun and a display stand.

Priced at $117, the figure is slated for release in August.

Anya & Stella vs. Action Figures

Anya and Stella demonstrate what girls run into when they try to buy action figures at the store.

Notes: Gamora is available as part of one of the two-packs of mini-figures. She is also available as part of the Marvel Legends series. Target was out of both of those and has been for weeks.

The only female action figure we were able to find in the entire aisle was Wonder Woman, and she was only available as part of a seven-hero set that cost $50. So in order to get one Wonder Woman, the girls would have to buy six heroes they didn’t want and pay $50 for the privilege. That was a non-starter.

I’m enough of a nerd that I know where to go to get female super hero figures, but they are generally designed for the adult male collector market. They are often inappropriately attired and always more expensive than the lines that are developed to be played with by children.

This is our first ever video. We hope to make more and we promise that as our skills improve, they will get better.
