A new Funko POP! three pack is coming to Walmart. This set is inspired by the classic Kenner designs and includes Hammerhead, Greedo and Walrusman. All three match the 1979 classic Kenner action figure designs. This retro set is sure to be a hit among long time collectors. It will be hitting Walmart stores nationwide later this month.

The ultra cool Rogue One Droid Factory Astromech Four Pack has been showing up at Disney Parks in North America. This set includes four exclusive droids: C2-B5, R2-BHO, R3-M2, and R5-SK1 that are all from the new movie. If you love astromech droids as we do at Rebelscum, you will not want to miss out on this pack.

If you have the LEGO 3D Catalogue App (for Android or iPhone) make sure it is up-to-date because the latest digital catalogue is now available. Inside it are six pages of LEGO Star Wars sets - many of which are already on toy store shelves - with regional release windows and prices. Thanks to Nick P for the timely reminder.

Because one new astromech in a plastic bag wasn't enough, here is another to add to your collection. Brick Depot, a chain of LEGO Certified Stores in Romania, is offering this specially packaged version of a unique droid created by Disney for their Rogue One Droid Factory set, free with a 24 purchase of LEGO Star Wars sets in one of their three stores in this European country. Given that the minifig comes with a base with a Technic pin which could be used to connect other droids, it is Rebelscum's summation that matching droids from the Droid Factory set are likely. Note that the dome element seems to be segmented which has lead some to conclude that the top of the minifig can be rotated. It has also been noticed that the edge of the base is curved as if it is the end piece in a set. Snaps to Graham at Brick Fanatics for the share. You can enjoy discussing this new minifig set in the dedicated 40268 R3-M2 thread in the LEGO section of our forums.
