Ever since the little ball droid known as BB-8 was revealed in the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans were hoping that the franchise that has mastered the art of merchandising would be releasing a remote controlled BB-8 toy for fans to play with at home. And their hopes have become realities.
Not one, but two remote controlled BB-8 toys are coming on Force Friday, and we have a good look at the two different options you’ll have to choose between. They’re both relatively pricey for toys, but they just might be worth it, especially the more expensive version, which comes from Sphero, the company that helped create BB-8 in the first place.

Next month brings the new video game LEGO Dimensions, linking the world’s of the LEGO versions of Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Scooby-Doo, Lord of the Rings and more. But I’m not even sure the LEGO video game world will be as massive or impressive as this latest creation.
LEGO master builder Michal Kazmierczak has constructed a 120,000 piece The Hobbit LEGO Erebor set, and you won’t believe how big and detailed this creation is. Even more impressive is that it’s not just an exterior LEGO creation, but it also has an incredible interior as well. I can’t even imagine how much this cost to create. Read More »

And while it seemed like we had seen a majority of the toys that will be sold, and therefore all the characters they’ll introduce, it appears there are still some new items to see.
In fact, two new action figures have just been unveiled, showing us two new The Force Awakens alien characters. One of them is a Resistance X-Wing pilot while the other is a character we’ve seen before, but didn’t have a name at the time. Check out the characters below! Read More »
Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t out until December 18th, some fans have already decided that their new favorite character is the adorable little ball droid known as BB-8. The character debuted in the first teaser for the film, rolling across a desert service, its little motor whirring as it moved as quick as it could. However, we’ve yet to here what the little droid actually sounds like.
A new commercial for Star Wars LEGO sets for The Force Awakens features some quick animation specifically one part with the little droid running from Kylo Ren and some First Order Stormtroopers where we get to hear what BB-8 sounds like for the first time. Check it out below! Read More »

Hasbro has released a full catalog of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys that are coming out on Force Friday, which takes place on Midnight on September 4th 2015. Most of the toys are pretty much spoiler free as it seems JJ Abrams and the creative team is limiting the early merchandising to mostly the first third of the movie. For instance, notice how the Rey and Finn figures are only available in “Jakku” versions. I’m sure they change outfits and look different throughout the film, but we’re only seeing toys from the early scenes in the Force Awakens.
But there are a couple minor side characters shown and vehicles we have yet to see (most of which I believe were just created for the toy line, so they won’t be featured in the movie), so proceed at your own risk of very very minor spoiler information. Hit the jump to see all the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys.
