Director Thrawn – The Grand Admiral Variant

With the latest wave of Rogue One 3 3/4″ figures hitting online etailers, there is now a new variant in the wild for those so inclined to pursue.  It appears the good Grand Admiral has the same ambition as Director Krennic as he can be found with two different ranks. Our TOY RUN co-host over at Jedibusiness.com received the correctly ranked Grand Admiral where we received a version mimicking the doomed director of the Death Star project.

We are assuming the correct version as seen on Star Wars Rebels is the second version, produced after our own which bears the date stamp of Friday, October 28th, 2016.

We do find it interesting that the card art bears the incorrect rank as well as seen below.

Here you can see Orson who worked his way up from Lt. Commander to Director in the novel Catalyst bears a full red and blue rank insignia just as our Thrawn above.

The question we now have is if this was an error created by the production of Rogue One or its reshoots or simply an error on Hasbro or LFL’s part. But regardless we are actually more curious to know if these two will ever meet in Star Wars Rebels which is set prior to the events of Rogue One?

Let us know what version you have received and we’ll discuss in on the next episode of TOY RUN: The Star Wars Action Figure Cast!

But until next time,

May the Figures be with you!
