Happy Force Friday! Here Are Three of the Coolest New Products Available to Star Wars Nuts


With the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens slated for this December, this year’s Force Friday (an unofficial holiday akin to Black Friday for Star Wars fanatics) has been particularly anticipated. Hoards of fans waited outside multiple L.A.-area stores in the hopes of being amongst the first to pick up the newly-released Star Wars merch. While the Disney Store’s midnight opening was no surprise (The House of Mouse currently owns the franchise), Target, Walmart, and Toys “R” Us got in on the Force Friday fun by opening their doors in the wee hours of the morning as well. Despite the sheer amount of amazing items that debuted today, we managed to narrow it down to the three you need:

Millennium Falcon UV Light Laser
Become the Jedi you’ve always wanted to be and participate in your own Star Wars light battles with the power of Uncle Milton’s new Millennium Falcon UV Light Laser. An ultraviolet light shoots lasers out at TIE Fighters and even creates light drawings on a phosphorescent screen.

Star Wars Kylo Ren™ Rope Wrap Dog Toy
The Force is strong with our furry friends. Similar to PETCO’s earlier Star Wars Pet Fan Collection, this Kylo Ren™ inspired rope wrap toy may look like the newest baddie, but it’s plushy enough to be chewed (nay, destroyed) by even the smallest pups.

BB-8 Droid 
Sold exclusively at Target in collaboration with Hasbro, the remote controlled version of the Jedis’s newest sidekick is part of Target’s original line up of Star Wars products. The authentic-looking BB-8 Droid can be controlled by the user and will roll in various directions.
