FIRST LOOK – Star Wars: The Force Awakens Toys!

June 11th, 2015 by Saxon Comments


Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have images of some of the new The Force Awakens toys which are set to debut at this Julys Geekosystem event! 

It’s all Stormtrooper themed to begin with, and as we already know what the new First Order Troopers look like these images are light on the spoilers.



It’s been hinted at for a while now, but here is the full official reveal of Hasbro’s Black Series 6 inch Stormtrooper from Episode VII!  The figure will be available at Comic Con in this exclusive convention packaging.  I want, sorry, NEED one.  Now.  Please.


Next up is LEGO’s rather awesome looking First Order Trooper.  It’s made up from 81 pieces which when assembled create a strikingly accurate looking nine inch figure.  It’ll only be on display at Comic Con and will hit toy store shelves in January next year.


And finally thanks to Hot Wheels we have a little die-cast car which…erm… looks like a Stormtrooper.  Ive never understood these character themed cars but I’m sure kids will get some fun out of them.  Plus the new helmet design does look quite cool on the hood of a car…

The Force Awakens hits theatres on December 18th, with the toy lines set for release from September onward.
