Sept. 4 will be a huge day. Declared “Force Friday,” it will be when Lucasfilm and Disney release all the toys for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, giving fans the opportunity to own a piece of the new trilogy. And, believe you me, there are a lot of toys on the way (which have already leaked out at some retail stores).
Hasbro has released its catalog of every toy related to the new Star Wars flick, including figurines, light sabers, blasters, masks, and much, much more. If you’re a fan of the franchise, the new toys will no doubt be irresistible, and that’s exactly what Disney wants. I mean, how can you not want Kylo Ren’s new crossguard light saber? Ok, bad example.
I already know I’m going to get every new 3.75-inch figure that comes out. Looking through the catalog, there’s Luke Skywalker (from Episode V), Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, Resistance Trooper, Poe Dameron, First Order Stormtrooper, Rey, Darth Vader (from Episode V), First Order Flametrooper, Finn and Constable Zuvio, who was recently revealed thanks to an earlier toy leak.
Additionally, there’s a toy for Garazeb Orrelios and C1-10P, and Unkar’s thug and Jakku scavenger, who we saw in the recent Entertainment Weekly spread.
Looking through the catalog, it doesn’t appear as though there’s anything too revealing. There’s a new vehicle called the Assault Walker, but we’re not sure if that will actually be a prominent part of the movie, or simply just something for the kiddies to play with. We get a heck of a look at the new TIE Fighter and Poe’s X-Wing, which we already knew would feature new color schemes.
Check out the gallery above to see all the awesome new Star Wars toys set to hit stores next month with, we hope, a new trailer.
