Happy Force Friday everyone! Today we get a bunch of exciting new Star Wars merchandise. The franchise is ready to take over your whole life again leading up to the December release of episode VII, The Force Awakens. Personally, I’m cool with Star Wars everything being all around. You can never have enough Star Wars (except for the extra awful CG in the prequels). Give me more stormtroopers! Give me more lightsabers! Give me brand new awesome action figures! Force Friday is just what a Star Wars fan should ask for.
Disney has been steadily giving us more exciting stuff related to the galaxy far far away. D23 announced the addition of Star Wars sections to the theme parks. Star Wars has also joined the popular Disney Infinity game. Now Force Friday is giving us new awesome merchandise for collectors and every day fans alike.
The Star Wars YouTube channel will be livestreaming events and unboxings throughout the day with YouTube stars and other personalities so make sure to take a look! There are also lots of specials going on. Amazon, the Disney store, Target, Walmart and more have exciting events and exclusives. Check out the event guide here to see what’s going on. You can also post about your experience with hashtag #ForceFriday. Hasbro’s catalog has been uploaded to imgur. Do you see any toys you’ll have to get? I’m definitely eyeing some of those new action figures for my shelf.
