We’re still a few months away from the arrival of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but we’re mere hours away from Force Friday, the day where the film’s merchandise is first unleashed upon the universe.
Although it’s just one of the many licensees, Funko will have plenty of potential pieces for collectors beginning at midnight tonight in many locations as it has revealed more than 50 pieces across several brands that will document the film in toy form and beyond.
It was no surprise that one of the stars of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the new droid in the franchise’s universe. Why? Because it was seen everywhere before the movie’s arrival, allowing us to marvel at the idea of a real robot — a head atop a rolling ball — being part of the action and not someone in a suit or something that’s purely computer-generated.
If you didn’t know, that robot was BB-8.
However, the news from Topps this week was a surprise as it’s going to have a BB-8 autographed card in 2016 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 2 when it arrives late next month. How?
