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’s one part cosplay, one part functional.
It’s Rey’s backpack and it’s only found via two places — ThinkGeek.com and GameStop — and is brought to life by Loungefly.
It’s officially licensed and allows fans to carry everything they need to have and even includes a stylized image of Rey and her speeder on the top panel as a nod to when it’s seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s $59.99 and not the only piece of unique Star Wars wearable memorabilia available now.
Replica props are big business and a new line of Star Wars props released Thursday by Disney help prove it.
Eight pieces launched the Ultimate Studio Edition of Star Wars Collectibles with the cheapest item starting at $1,250.
One of the more in-demand autographs in the galaxy is now available.
It’s the ink of Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley and it can be found via Steiner Sports.
The New Rochelle, N.Y.-based autograph memorabilia company offered nine signed photos on Monday night with prices starting at $649.99 for an 8-by-10 image.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will spawn 11 more Funko Pop! figures later this year as the preliminary drawings of 11 more toys have arrived.
Coming in June will be a new new-look figure for Luke Skywalker (above) as well as other notables from the film.
The last time we had checked in on the Mystery Redemption from 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 1 it had sold for big bucks on eBay — going for $1,700.
(Spoiler alert: It was initially revealed to be for an autograph of Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey, though Topps Marketing Communications Manager Susan Lulgjuraj said there is not yet a confirmed subject for the card.)
But now an actual sale has gone even higher.
Earlier this month, a copy of the redemption topped the $2,000 mark, selling for $2,050 via a Best Offer in this auction. That has helped inflate asking prices for the card in active auctions as cards continue to be tucked away into personal collections.
A pair of 2015 Topps Star Wars The Force Awakens Mystery Redemptions have hit eBay since the set’s release on Friday.
And the first one has sold — for big bucks.
The card was initially announced as being for Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey in The Force Awakens, but Topps unspoiled its spoiler by removing the reference to it being a card for her on the autograph checklist posted on its website.
So, how much did it go for?
We’re less than two days away from the arrival of The Force Awakens and the newest Star Wars card set from Topps — and both have carry plenty of mystery.
Why? We don’t have a checklist yet because even it could contain potential spoilers.
The checklist for 2015 Topps Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 1 is coming as early as tomorrow and it’s likely to include the first autographs of the new generation of Star Wars stars — the likes of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver, who haven’t had certified autographs before.
And that got Buzz thinking about the possibilities.
