Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t hit theaters until Dec. 15, but the hype is officially here. Sept. 1 marks Force Friday, a celebration of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and features the release of the film’s toy and action-figure line, a number of new novels and reference books.
Like the 2015 event, you can find new Star Wars toys, gear, books and more at stores and online. Here’s a few of the cool products:
Star Wars Millennium Falcon Lego Set ($799.99)
Lego is calling its new Millennium Falcon Lego set one of its largest and most epic models ever. We agree. It includes laser cannons, landing legs, a boarding ramp and a cockpit with room for four minifigs. Plus, it has a canopy that detatches.
Lenovo Star War Jedi’s Challenges AR Experience ($199.99)
Lenovo and Disney have partnered up to create an augmented reality toy that allows you to tackle Star Wars themed obstacles — like facing off against Kylo Ren in a lightsaber battle. The setup includes of Lenovo’s Mirage AR headset, tracking beacon and a lightsaber controller. The software is entirely mobile-app based.
Hasbro’s Porg Toys ($40)
Inspired by the curious creatures from on Ahch-To Island in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, these Porg toys chatter and make real sounds, flaps, waves, waddles, and move.
Like the BB-8 Sphero toy from 2015, these droids can be controlled with a smart device and use augmented reality to show holographic simulations from the Star Wars galaxy.
Praetorian Guard action figure ($20)
JAKKS Pacific’s line of action figures includes new character Praetorian Guard. The characters are guards of Supreme Leader Snoke in the movie.
Supreme Leader Snoke action figure ($20)
Speaking of Snoke, here’s the first-ever 6-inch scale action figure of Supreme Leader Snoke, who will exclusively retail at Gamestop this Fall for $35. The figure, based on Snoke’s appearance in the new movie, features a fabric robe and comes with his very own throne to sit on.
