Rogue One Voice Changer Helmets and More Coming From Hasbro

The next wave of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story products have been revealed by manufacturer Hasbro. Ahead of the anthology film’s release on December 16, the new range already looks to include a host of fresh action figures, as well as some colourful Star Wars weaponry and all-new playsets. There’s some neat Stormtrooper helmets too, if you’re feeling the Dark Side.

Some fresh additions to NERF’s Star Wars range. Fans of The Alliance can fight back against Imperial forces with a GlowStrike Deluxe Blaster based on Jyn Erso’s personal pistol, or opt for the more compact pistol of Captain Cassian Andor. Boasting a range of 65 feet, the Erso blaster features killer blasting sound effects from the film, while both guns carry nifty light functions and glow in the dark ammo to take out Troopers in gloomier corridors. While the Erso blaster requires 4 AA batteries to wield, the Andor NERF needs 3 AAA batteries to function fully (included in both).

In addition to 6 original NERF darts, the Erso Deluxe blaster comes with 6 Elite GlowStrike darts to ensure your accuracy is never compromised. The Andor pistol, however, will include 3 Elite GlowStrike darts. According to Argos, the Erso Blaster will sell for £44.99, while the Andor pistol will be $19.99 (£14.99). They’re expected to release on September 30 2016.

A new Micro Machines playset was also revealed by Hasbro, envisioning an unfoldable Death Star that features “360 degrees of play” across 3 Rogue One battle environments. The playset comes with exclusive Jyn Erso and Imperial Death Trooper Micro figures, as well as miniature versions of the Imperial AT-AT Walker, Krennic’s Shuttle and an Imperial Cargo Shuttle. The set is priced at $49.99 (approximately £37), and will be available at “most major retailers”, as well as Hasbro’s official store.

But as the previously-distributed Vader helmet and Chewbacca Mom have elegantly outlined, the Rogue One range just wouldn’t be complete without some voice-changing headgear. As such, some new Imperial helmets will be hitting stores this autumn, including a Rogue One Death Trooper mask and a new Stormtrooper helmet from the company’s Black Series – each fitted with a voice-changer to lend your intergalactic exploits some distinctive Imperial flair. You can see the new gear in the images below (thanks, Screen Rant).

It should be noted that the Rogue One Death Trooper mask requires 3 1.5V AA batteries to function, which will come included when purchased. However, you’ll need to purchase your own 1.5V AA alkaline batteries if you want to tear it up as a Black Series Stormtrooper.

A hands-on with the upcoming masks was also recently published, which is available to watch below via Star Wars News Net.

The products follow Hasbro’s recent announcements of their new range of figures and playsets to compliment the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16. You can see their new AT-ACT vehicle playset here.
