Force Friday is here! A brand new holiday established to make people line up and buy toys. If you can find one, Hasbro’s magnetic BB-8 droid is probably the most desired. My inbox tells me that you can also buy many toys at Target.
- An exclusive, remote controlled BB-8 droid from Hasbro that moves and sounds just like it does in the film
- Bladebuilder compatible light sabers with lights and sounds at the push of a button and more than 100 combinations
- All-new and collectible Star Wars-themed Micro Machines and Battle Sets
- A LEGO® Star Wars First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter that lets you intercept and destroy the enemy
And you cane share your memories of buying other Star Wars toys at ShareTheForce.Target.com, “the first digital collection of Star Wars memories.” The first? Alright.
