In the third episode of Go Rogue, the stop motion YouTube series featuring the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toys, the rebels are forced to improvise as the Empire ruins their mission to steal the Death Star plans.
Pau the alien gets his first lines. Captain Cassian Andor and K-2SO fight over the remote controls for the AT-ACT. And a stormtrooper notices that Director Orson Krennic looks different, but he can’t figure out how.
All these antics and more are happening in Go Rogue: Chapter 3. Watch it below.
Go Rogue is a stop motion YouTube series produced in partnership by Lucasfilm, Tongal, and a team of Star Wars fans. With each of its four installments, the series previews new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toys which are part of the line being released in stores September 30th.

This week, we got to meet the action figure of Pau, a new character and non-human species in Rogue One. Director Orson Krennic also appears as the more film-accurate Hasbro 3.75″ version of himself, as opposed to the bobble-headed Funko Pop! figure he appeared as in the first two episodes. (I love how the stormtrooper who serves under him realizes his boss looks different, but can’t figure out why. That kind of simple, stupid humor is what makes this series so entertaining.)
The biggest star of the show this week was the AT-ACT by Hasbro. The vehicle is remote controlled in real life as well as in Go Rogue. This means Cassian and K-2’s fight over the controls is a preview of how you and family and friends will fight over who gets to play with the AT-ACT next. Another fun feature of the AT-ACT is that it functions like it does in the movie, as a cargo vehicle. The toy version comes with a hatch that opens up to accommodate Hasbro’s 3.75″ figures.
