This 'Star Wars' Toy Stormtrooper Helmet Lets You Talk Like You Belong on the Death Star (Exclusive)
A major marketing push for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will begin Sept. 30 when toy companies launch a galaxy’s worth of toy products.
A lot of the toys will feature Jyn Erso, the rebel played by Felicity Jones, or the killer robot-turned-good guy K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), or the villain Director Krennic, played by Ben Mendelsohn. And then there will be the new spaceships, many of which will be variations of a letter (with some wings) and the TIE fighter.

But you know what never goes out of style? Imperial Stormtroopers.
One of the cool products to hit from Hasbro will be the Imperial Stormtrooper Electronic Voice Changer Helmet, a highly detailed piece from its high end Black Series line. The electronic helmet will let you disguise your voice as you shake down Rebel scum and will cost $79.99.
Speaking of space ships, among other offering will be Rogue One’s Rebel U-Wing fighter that comes with a Captain Cassian Andor figure (played by Diego Luna in the movie). The starship features Nerf-dart-firing cannons and adjustable wings to switch between flight and battle action modes. Two Nerf darts are included. $49.99 is the price.
Hasbro’s Black Series will also be well-represented in the fall toy launch as Erso, Andor, K-2SO and Krennic all get their own detailed, 6-inch figures, as do the Imperial Death Trooper and the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader. The figures are $19.99.
The toys will be available for preorder from online retailers or HasbroToyShop.com Friday.
