With the last of the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” related toys currently being unveiled to the public online, Disney and Lucasfilm have also released a new poster for the J.J. Abrams-directed film which blends a previously released still and an Empire Magazine’s cover into an impressive banner that will hang in cinemas around the world. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens December 18th.
Ahead of ‘Force Friday’ tomorrow in which Disney is set to take the money of “Star Wars” toy fans everywhere, the YouTube unboxing event has been a spectacular success with some impressive looking merchandise set to go on sale tomorrow.
Amongst the highlights have been a Millennium Falcon with Finn and Chewbacca action figures and Nerf darts, a Stormtrooper Nerf gun, remote control flying X-Wings, a Millennium Falcon Quad Copter, a LEGO Millennium Falcon, Elite Series Action Figures, a LEGO version of Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle, a LEGO First Order Transporter, a LEGO Poe Dameron X-Wing Fighter, Kylo Ren and First Order Stormtrooper JAKKS Figures, and a Micro Machines Star Destroyer.
The two most must have items though? A Millennium Falcon Bed, and Sphero’s working mini-version of the soccerball-style droid BB-8 which is remote controlled with a phone app. In fact you can record a hologram message onto your phone, transmit it to the droid, and then it can project it.
