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.

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!!
