Star Wars: Rogue One Theater Goods in Japan

Along with just about everywhere else, Star Wars: Rogue One was recently released in Japan. An age-old tradition here is to sell a bunch of movie-themed goods at the theater, to the point of creating a pop-up shop for the biggest films.

For Rogue One, the product roll out was much smaller than for 2015's The Force Awakens. In fact, the theater I went to was even selling TFA goods as well as standard toy store Star Wars merch alongside the small number of Rogue-specific goods. Anyway, a few gems emerged. Here's a look at the offerings.
Sample movie program. For more than half a century, special programs have been made in Japan to be sold during theatrical releases..

Cool selection of 3D glasses.

 More after the jump:
It was a bit surprising to see some Black Series and standard 3 3/4" figures at the pop up shop.




With Rogue and The Force Awakens, we've seen some outstanding new coins. This is another Japanese tradition going make several decades.


The Plush Star



Another standout item - a super cool pen with Dark Lord chain strap.

Rogue One branded popcorn buckets and drink cups.

Personally, I thought Rogue One was an excellent film and the best in the Star Wars franchise in the last 30 years.

Happy Holidays from Kaiju Korner. May the force be with you!
