Target Aims at One Stop Shopping for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars The Force Awakens Target exclusives

Target has released its picks for the top Star Wars products from The Force Awakens, and pitches that they can be your one stop for Star Wars. We all know that with all the retailer exclusives out there, if you want to complete your collection, you’ll be stopping everywhere. But Target will be the only one with Hasbro’s remote-controlled BB-8 droid.

Still, it’s nice to see some of the other items outside of our Black Series and LEGO updates – a Millenium Falcon drone looks like fun!

LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens

LEGO has been busy revealing images of their seven (!) new sets for The Force Awakens over the course of the day, but didn’t release details on each until we officially hit Force Friday.

Hasbro has a ton of product coming out – I am going to limit the this post to the Star Wars Black Series line. Unsurprisingly, almost all of the regular and retailer exclusive releases are for The Force Awakens. But there is one exception.

Random Early Find – Star Wars Black Series The Force Awakens Finn [Update: and Chewbacca!]

Star Wars Black Series - The Force Awakens -  Finn

I have been visiting my parents for the past couple of weeks, and not keeping up with toy news – so I had no idea that some images of a Star Wars Black Series Finn from The Force Awakens had made the rounds yesterday. So it was by complete coincidence that I was at the Green Hills shopping mall (in the Philippines) with my mom today and came across Finn. [Update: And Chewbacca – I didn’t realize it was the updated Chewie…]
