FFA: Star Wars Force Friday

While I have not made it anywhere to experience Force Friday in person, I have been following along with Jedi Insider to get a look at the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys.  There are some really nice looking figures coming out and I must stay it's stoked my curiousity/excitement for the film as well.  Mission accomplished on that front.

My current situation is that I only collect wrestling figures and I almost completely cut out collecting comic book and other types of figures.  That said, it's possible that I will not got any The Force Awakens figures, but I know an 8 year old boy who probably will.

All-in-all, I think this has been a really cool promotion and it personally reminds me of first laying my hands on the The Phanton Menace figures back in 99.  Darth Maul was the most desired one there I believe and that was completely understandable.  My guess is that Kylo Ren fills that role this time.  No matter who the star of the line becomes I'm a) glad that Star Wars is back in a big way and b) look forward to seeing more toys.

Out of all the cool stuff that's coming, and I enjoy old-school figures the most, this BB-8 deal is pretty amazing if you ask me (as it should be at $150).
