Force Friday II Videos | Last Jedi Toy Reveals

Force Friday II  |  The Potential for a Dark Side 

9 times out of 10, if it’s a retail event with the word “Friday” in its title, it’s a disastrous nightmare; consumerism at its ugliest: people (animals) reaching over one another, violently grabbing toys, cheap clothes and housewares from others’ hands. As if Dollar flip flops justify verbal and physical assault. Though, in my experience at a Toys “R” Us last night at midnight, these nerdy shoppers couldn’t have been nicer.

What’s Force Friday?

The big toy rollout every year for you fans of the force is Force Friday! This year’s forceful sales event is technically Force Friday 2, as the original Force Friday began with the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015. This year, of course, we have Star Wars: The Last Jedi coming in December, hence last night’s rollout. What is Force Friday, you ask? Well, my younglings, every year now, a few months before the release of a new Star Wars movie, we will also be given a fresh batch of previews for the new flicks–but, in the form of toys/collectibles! Starting at 12 midnight on any given Force Friday, big name retailers like Toys “R” Us open the flood gates for the hardcorest of SW collectors to Tusken raid their shelves.

Here are a few YouTube and Instagram (@ComicBookIntl) videos of my findings, some of which I will be unboxing right here on the site, as well as our CBIN YouTube Channel. Please post/share your findings with us as well, in the comments section below and on social media! Tell us about your Force Friday 2 bounty hunt experience!
