While still processing through the information overload that was last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration Europe London, we think we have happened across what appears to be an Imperial Troop Transport in Rogue One. Appearing in one brief blink-and-you-miss-it scene in the sizzle reel from the Rogue One Panel, a couple of familiar shapes appear next to an explosion of Stormtroopers. The shapes are more reminiscent of the modern form of the ITT which is present in the Star Wars Rebels animated series and who share this same timeframe with Rogue One.
Now it goes without saying that if this is indeed an ITT, vintage collectors will enjoy seeing one of Kenner’s first original creations make it to into a Star Wars film proper. For more background on the ITT/Rebel Cruiser from Kenner & Hasbro check out our 37 Years of Imperial Troop Transport History article.

Until next time,
May the Figures be with you!
