Star Wars fans around the world will soon get a first look at new products from Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the world’s first live, global toy unboxing event unfolds across 12 countries, 15 cities, in 18 hours. In the most epic product launch ever mounted, selected toys and merchandise will be revealed for the first time on Star Wars’ Official YouTube channel. More details are available via StarWars.com.
In Singapore, selected Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys and merchandise will be launched at a Force Friday midnight event at Toys “R” Us, United Square, Atrium, Basement 1 from 00:01 hrs till 02:30 hrs on Friday, 4 Sept 2015! To have a peek at what toys might be available, check out the Hasbro catalog here. Or if you’re more of a LEGO person, check out the LEGO sets here. The question now is, will the launch cover both Hasbro and LEGO products? Guess we’ll have to find out on the day itself.
Apart from being first in line to own the new toys, there will be an exciting line up of events for fans and members of the public to participate in, including a best dressed impersonator competition and Star Wars trivia with prizes to be won. There’ll even be goodie bags for the first 300 customers who purchase Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise. The top Toys “R” Us Star Card spender for the night will be rewarded with a Limited Hasbro Star Wars: The Force Awakens toy (wonder what it is though).
