The big day is here! Or at least one of the big days in a long line of “big days” pertaining to Star Wars! It’s FORCE FRIDAY!! I’ve decided to make a little list chronicling some of my favorite new merch that made its debut today!
NOTE: Contains no real spoilers, but for safety’s sake I hope you’ve watched all the movies at least.
I knew all this new SW stuff was going to be cool, but I had no idea how cool. I am literally DAZZLED by the amazing things they’ve come up with… and the movie hasn’t even come out yet! Not to mention all the cool stuff pertaining to the rest of the films and shows! It reminds me once again just how amazing it is to be part of this… to be here in the midst of it all as a new era of SW films comes into being! And all the fabulous merch that comes with it! Somehow I managed to slim it down to just ten amazing products that I’ve found whilst searching the interwebs (and it was hard trust me). Without further ado, ten reasons to pull out your cash today!
1. The 3.75ers
Whether they be Black Series or otherwise, the classic 3 1/4 inch action figures are my bread and butter. They look so stinkin’ amazing I might just have to nab them on the spot! LOOK AT THAT FINN I NEED HIM SO SO BAD.
2. The ‘Sabers
Every SW fan should get to experience throwing around a play-value clashable lightsaber, and you can never have too many!
3. The Huggable Vader!
Never have I wanted to hug a Sith so much. GO TO BUILD-A-BEAR WORKSHOP RIGHT NOW.
4. The Giant Pillow
When the fan awakens, they ought to wake up to this awesomeness.
5. The Master Of All Animatronics
I generally prefer toys that have minimal or no battery-operated function, but this Yoda is an absolute beaut’! The quality on this guy is incredible and would look great just sitting around your house when he’s not training you in the ways of the Jedi. His movement is scary realistic (in a good way), and dude you can literally Force push him!! I’m sold!! I know what I’ll be doing the next time I have $180 lying around…
6. The Sweet Ride
Kylo Ren most definitely has one. And you can have it in Lego form. So worth all the time it’d take to build it…
7. The Fabric Awakens
There are literally oodles of options for those who want to wear their Episode VII love everywhere they go. It was nearly impossible to pick just a few pics to show here! You can get BB-8 schematics from Hot Topic, a dramatic display of Kylo’s three-blade from DisneyStore, and a wonderfully sparkly Captain Phasma from Her Universe! And this is just the tip of the iceberg of the cool shirts you can get whether you’re a guy or a girl!
8. The Keep Calm And Carry On
But there’s no way to keep calm when we’re only a few months away from Episode VII!! All the more reason to buy this amazing tote from DisneyStore! It’s got both our Rebs and our Order!
9. The Jump To Hypersnooze!
It’s not easy to love alarm clocks. But it’s easy to love the Millennium Falcon. So thus why it’s not a want, but a need.
10. And this, for so many reasons this
OK so it’s not really Episode VII-related but don’t tell me you don’t want this on your doorstep this Halloween! Is it weird I really want to give him all my candy?
There you go! And who knows what other wonderful things are to come as The Force Awakens gets closer and closer? Until then…
Keep The Peace,
