It’s Force Friday! At midnight tonight, stores have the green light to finally put Star Wars products out on the shelf. There’s a ton of it, and Hasbro has shared the official pics and descriptions. We’re going to focus it on the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch offerings.
We’ve seen some product line extensions in 6-inch. In addition to single-carded figures, we’re seeing more vehicles and a completely new line that includes 6-inch scaled statues plus environments, which you can plus up by adding your own Black Series figures to the scene.
Finally, if you’re sensitive to spoilers (even minor ones), you might want to skip this article. I try to stay away from entertainment news, but the product line-ups may reveal characters and story details that might tell you too much for your taste.
May the Force be with you!

We’re a week away from Force Friday, and Hasbro has more retailer exclusives incoming. As you might expect, most are tied-in with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but a certain astromech droid is looking to remote control his way to your heart.
With the Star Wars Smart R2-D2, Hasbro is looking to capture some of the magic that Sphero did with its app-enabled BB-8 (http://amzn.to/2cMWhmE).

Now I just need an appropriately-sized C-3PO head for Artoo to drag around.

If you were wondering where the 3.75-inch figures were in yesterday’s Star Wars reveals from Hasbro (http://afpics.link/2bGG8ir), they couldn’t be contained in a single announcement! But there’s more.
Hasbro also shared their role play items, which include a voice changer Death Trooper mask and a pretty cool update to their Stormtrooper voice changer helmet.

You didn’t need the Force to know Hasbro would be coming out with new toys for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, right? Hasbro has shared the initial line-ups for vehicles and playsets for the 3.75-inch scale, a wave of figures for Star Wars: Black Series in the 6-inch scale, and basic and deluxe figures in the 12-inch scale.
With their recent foray into super-articulated 12-inch figures for Marvel, I thought maybe Star Wars would follow suit with Black Series in 12-inches. But that’s not to be this time around.
No Bothans were harmed to bring us this press release.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in the US on December 6 this year, and LEGO will be there with LEGO Star Wars sets based on the movie. We’ve got the schematics for eight new sets. Many Bothans died to bring us this information.
While no official street date has been revealed, if past patterns hold, we should see these sets hit shelves in the 3 months before the movie release. And there’s this year’s Force Friday, aka Rogue Friday, which falls on September 30. So, use the Force!
