Darth Vader returns in force this year with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! The epic space saga film takes place just before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, a time when the Galactic Empire is at the peak of its power, whereas the fledgling Rebel Alliance plots to thwart the Empire's plan to build a moon-sized battle station. As the Emperor's top enforcer and the symbol of the Empire's reign of terror, Lord Vader will crush the Rebels by any means necessary. 

While fans worldwide are holding their breath to experience the new film, Hot Toys is here to unleash the power of the Dark Side with the new 1/6th scale Darth Vader collectible figure! 

The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted featuring a newly developed body and armor, a new highly polished helmet sculpt, sophisticatedly tailored and delicately textured costume, a utility belt with LED lights, a lightsaber hilt.

When you pre-order now, you can also receive a specially designed Death Star theme double-sided backdrop!
Search your feelings... you know you want this for your Hot Toys Star Wars Collection! It is time to #GoRogue

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
