On Friday, Sept. 4 at 12:01 am in your time zone Force Friday begins!
This event is the worldwide launch of new Star Wars toys and collectibles for the upcoming film: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. New products from Hasbro, LEGO, Mattel, Funko and others will be officially for sale at midnight store openings around the globe.
While Lucasfilm has been heavily promoting this event with YouTube tie-ins and events at Toys”R”Us in Times Square, they are less forthcoming with what new toys will be available. Only three days away from the massive shopping event most collectors only know what to expect on shelves through various leaks online.
A coalition of Star Wars collecting fan sites have joined Forces to compile all known releases into the Force Friday Product Checklist.
The Realm Recap is back after an extended break, but in our absence, plenty of news broke by way of crowd sourcing as Force Friday product continues to leak on to store shelves. We take a look at the latest reveals as well as our thoughts on the planned 18-hour global “unboxing” event from Disney/Lucasfilm. Officially, Disney did release their Infinity 3.0 system and the reviews are generally very positive. We close things out with a discussion on the new micro teaser Lucasfilm released via Instagram, Topps Trading Card app praises and our latest toys acquisitions. All this and much more on Episode #73 of The Realm Recap!
