It is time again to get your wallet out and fork over some cold hard cash and/or Bitcoins for Star Wars merchandize. So dust off your sweet 1983 Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader figure and head on over to “Force Friday” to see what kind of crap they have to replace them. This is a special event Disney and Lucas Film wasted no time in putting together to unveil the new line of merchandise for Star Wars: The Force Awakens branded, action figures, books, games, clothes, toys, beer cozies and dildo warmers.
Some special folks got sent Star Wars merchandize ahead of time so they could share it to their followers. Thanks for thinking of us Disney! …. We didn’t get any toys, but here is someone who got a bunch of stuff including … a surfboard?
Seriously, there was everything strange on display including:
Star Wars Cover Girl Makeup
Star Wars Campbell’s Soup
Hopefully Jar-Jar Binks is the main ingredient.
Star Wars Hot Wheels
Double Headed Light Saber
Fun for the whole family.
Remote Control BB-8
OK, this one is actually really cool, even though this robot is obviously supposed to be the “new” R2-D2.
Now even if you are not someone who is going to rush out and buy a bunch of toys or weird crap for a film you haven’t even seen yet, there is something kind of interesting about all of this merch. Some have discovered that many of the new toys are spouting lines of dialogue… from the new film that comes out in December! SO either these are lines written specifically for just the toys OR they are previously unheard lines from The Force Awakens. This brings up the possibility that the toys could reveal major spoilers for fans. Like what if you get the new Princess Leia action figure to go along with your old one and it’s like;
“Oh my god! Luke Skywalker has just been shot dead!”
Or Han Solo is all like; “Luke; he’s not your father, he lied!”
Those would be major spoilers! Like here are some of the actual lines that have come out of the new toys unveiled for #ForceFriday; such as this new mask from bad guy, Kylo Ren;
Would you guys buy any of this stuff?
