Appears our prediction made on Episode #18 of TOY RUN: The Star Wars Action Figure Cast was correct as it appears the packaging will not change with this Fall’s Rogue One Black Series line.

At the end of the panel, viewers online were treated to the sizzle reel once again while those in attendance were shown a new Rogue One trailer which is rumored to debut tonight on ABC.
