I'll probably watch the live stream since I can't see myself fighting the masses.  Also, I want to see who has what.  There are supposed to be store exclusives.

should be interesting to say the least...Disney has bought the cash cow with all they plan to release. Im personally looking at all the black series stuff and the Disney store exclusive items

The black series stuff looks great.  Especially, the troopers.  For anything with a face, I prefer Hot Toys/Sideshow stuff.  It looks like the better sabers are being branded under the black series moniker.  I'm still curious to see if they release a signature series with removable blades.  I don't know their timeline for releasing everything but I'm sure we'll see a lot more than what they've shown so far.

force friday was a bust.   drove half an hour to the only store in the area that was doing it (toys-r-us).  got there before midnight.  it was a zoo and they only had one aisle of SW stuff with about a hundred people crammed into the same aisle all at once. (most of it 'rebels' merchandise).  there was very little product from TFA.   bought the nerf blaster and some lego kits.  only saw a few figures -- none of the main characters -- the store staff said they didn't receive all the SKUs they were expecting.    there were -NO- BB8 droids (the remote control version for $150, which I've had my eye on).    she said most of the TFA merchandise is coming on "the next few trucks",  over the next few weeks.

Was extremely disappointed. Stood in line for over an hour at local Toys R Us. Only one isle of very limited merch. Most what I would call toys more for children. NO new FX sabers until Oct. Only the fold out cheapo's. No Black Line action figures ( I did order a Rey and BB8 set online this morning.) so limited, it was weak. The only kind of cool thing TRU had was the interactive teaching Yoda. No Falcon drones !!  They did give me a sweet Kylo poster though! I also pre-ordered a Sphero BB8 online this morning as well. Supposed to receive next Friday, Oct.11.
Went to Target this morning and same sitch. Very limited although they have a view items which I guess are exclusive to Target... Such as a remote control BB8 which they were out of. A jedi holocron, and a couple other items, but mostly limited and picked through. Kind of disappointed. I guess I will just wait until my stuff arrives in the mail!!

I was too lazy to stand in line so I took the online route and at 2am purchased the "Remote Control Millennium Falcon Quad Drone" from TARGET... they gave a $25.00 Force Friday Discount so it cost me $90.94 with shipping. I also purchase the "BB-8 App-enabled Droid by Sphero" from the Sphero website. No discount but I did only pay retail $149.99 including shipping. These are already up for resale on Amazon for between $229.00 to $279.00 but FYI it looks like you can still buy them from Sphero for $149.99. Cool Stuff!! :)

I'm stoked on the micro machines, too.  There are some other die cast ships that look good as well.  I just saw an interview with a Disney/Hasbro rep that said this is just the first wave of new products.  The next wave will be released in November with another wave after the movie is released.

Big haul today but alas no Kylo Ren Force FX.  Apparently it was there for $200.  Would have been $175 with the discount.

The target I went to had plenty of Falcon drones, no BB8 RCs though. Black Series stuff flew off the shelves! And they had 3 Fx Kylo Sabers. I guess each Target had varying stock of what they had. I also saw on IG that some Targets had no lines! And with plenty of Black Series figures! Alas, I got the Black Series Titanium star fighters (Falcon, Slave 1 and X Wing Resistance Fighter) along with the new order storm trooper and kylo 10 inch action figures.

I was planning on getting out at midnight but there were no Best Buy stores that opened at that time so I did the waiting game till morning and got BB-8 by Sphero.  I'm one happy camper here!

i wonder if those bb8 droid toys actually have a little character or are they just made to look like they do in the promo vid,
do they make all the random beep nioses etc like in the vids and peep round corners and stuff?? lol
hope they dont end up being noisy and unresponsive

hope you do a vid jango  ;)
