Triple Force Friday isn’t until next week, but today, Lucasfilm wanted to show off the assembly of merchandise that will be available starting on October 4.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite new items that will be available for sale, including the first roster of Black Series figures (which now has a new variant of certain characters), the initial wave of Funko POPs, a new interactive droid of D-O, some LEGO playsets, and more.

NECA has been crushing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figure game in the past couple years. Not only have they released incredibly detailed figures that accurately recreate the look of the characters in the original movie from 1990, but they’ve also given the animated series version of the heroes in a half-shell the perfect figures too. But now the toy masters at Super7 are offering something different that will have children of the 90s wanting yet another set of TMNT action figures.
Super7 is offering a whole new wave of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures that take their designs directly from the vintage Playmates toy line of the characters from the beloved animated series. They’re a little bit pricier than some of the other recent figures, but they’re made to order and come with plenty of cool accessories, and some of them are presented in a way that will have children of the 90s drowning in waves of nostalgia. See the Super7 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures below. Read More »

That includes building a LEGO set, and one brilliant master builder has created an incredible Ratatouille LEGO set of the final restaurant that Linguini and his little chef Remy start together. It’s not an official Ratatouille LEGO set, but it can be with your support. Read More »

You’ve heard the Star Wars theme countless times in a variety of different versions, ranging from the inexplicably popular disco version that ruled the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in 1977 to Nick the Lounge Singer’s famous rendition in the early years of Saturday Night Live.

Why? So the LEGO droids play the Star Wars theme, of course. Watch below! Read More »
