See All the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Toys That Hasbro Will Release on Force Friday
Star Wars is the kind of movie franchise that commands borderline religious devotion from its fans. So no one batted an eye when September 4, 2015 was declared “Force Friday” and it was revealed that this very specific holiday would see the release of the first wave of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys. And while some people in the Church of Lucasfilm would prefer to keep all merchandise (and any potential spoilers it brings) hidden as long as possible, Hasbro has released a catalog of each and every toy they are releasing on this Blessed Day. Naturally, this catalog has now ended up online.
You can peruse the catalog above at your own leisure, but most of it is exactly what you’d expect. There are tons of 3.5" action figures, depicting major characters from across all seven films (and a few Stormtroopers to provide playroom canon fodder). The more serious collectors will find solace in the new “Black Series” figures, which are intended for display rather than play. There are masks for every character that warrants one, like Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, and Stormtroopers (our prayers for an Oscar Isaac mask have gone unanswered). And, of course, there’s the “Battle Action” Millennium Falcon, which looks like it’s going to be the toy that everyone eight-year old boy owns and cherishes and fondly remembers in nostalgic, late night dorm room chats a decade from now.
Those who want more active toys will find them in a new line of Star Wars Nerf guns, which replace blaster shots with foam darts. Inventive kids are going to want that Bladebuilders set, which lets you customize your own wacky lightsabers, so you can smack your siblings across the heads with hard plastic in the exact way you choose.
The only thing missing is a life-size BB-8, which will surely exist in some capacity by the time Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on December 18, 2015. In the meantime, these toys will go on sale at midnight on September 4. Do you have the mettle to get in line at your local Toys ’R Us a few hours early? This is your chance to prove yourself. Don’t let us down.
