Gotta ask why GG? Nothing wrong with the first MB and honestly zero reason to offer another version given how visually simplistic the character is. Waste of resources IMO.

Yeah, and the first one sells for modest prices on eBay.

Thatíll happen when you produce 6000 pieces.

Is this under the Rogue One license?

If so then there's your answer.

Even if it is it’s still pointless given Rogue One concludes and essentially leads directly into A New Hope. As such there is no distinguishable difference between this MB and the first outside of the pose. Of all the R1 pieces they could produce this one shouldn’t even make the list.

Does that stop anyone from making Darth Vader figures and statues from Rogue One?

No, but he’s arguably the figurehead for the franchise and despite his appearance changing very little from film to film there’s always a market for new Vader product. To produce a 2nd Tarkin before other Imperials like Lieutenant Commander Krennic for example is mind boggling. If the intent is to pull from Rogue One.

Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

Another swing and a miss from GG. First was perfect, zero reason to go back to him.
