A merch storm the likes of which we have never seen started last Friday, when Disney unleashed the irresistible power of Force Friday. Let’s just say the decision to release the movie the week before Christmas was a calculated decision that the Sith would be proud of, because loads of wallets are going to be Force choked into oblivion from now until the end of the year. Word is it’s already begun, with toy stores across the nation swamped with holiday shoppers and Star Wars fans alike. When Black Friday comes, it’s going to make the Clone Wars look like an R2-D2/C-3PO spat.
And you know what? That’s alright, because this stuff is pretty awesome. From brand new Lego sets to your own personal smart droid, this slate of merch is not only full of must-haves, it makes us a little worried that we’re all going to need a dedicated Star Wars room by the time this new trilogy is over. Here’s our list of favorites from Force Friday — this is going to shock you, but BB-8 is heavily featured.
Funko Pop! Vinyl Figurines
Too easy. We’re all about Funko Pop! figurines anyway, there’s no we can resist a giant-headed Kylo Ren with that tiny new light-claymore-saber.
