Grab your credits and get ready to fill up the cargo bay with a few crates full of Star Wars merch: Triple Force Friday is coming on October 4th, and there’s enough new stuff to bury a bantha! From fresh Lego sets to action figures aplenty, the newest Star Wars merch has been unveiled, and we’re already clearing shelf space here at Stately Beat Manor.
Whether you’re a fan of Mandalorian armor, droids, the ascending Knights of Ren or Jedi on the lam, there’s plenty of products that will appeal to any palette — and they contain a bunch of tantalizing hints about what just around the corner for the Star Wars galaxy.
Action figures have long been the cornerstone of the Star Wars toy galaxy, even back when they were actually empty boxes.
Black Series Figures
The Black Series is known for its faithful reproductions of on-screen characters, and the new figures for Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian, and Jedi: Fallen Order are no exception. While the majority will be available at most major retailers, the First Order Elite Stormtrooper will only be available at Target, and the Purge Stormtrooper is exclusive to GameStop.
Galaxy of Adventures
Based on the Galaxy of Adventures shorts, these figures offer animated versions of brand new characters and classics alike.
Hero Series 12 Inch Figures
The 12-inch Hero series of figures offers big fun with Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, a Sith Trooper, and the big bad himself, Darth Vader.
These gold figures commemorate the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga with characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. These figures will be available at Wal-Mart.
Hasbro is also releasing new figures in its vintage line, which features brand-new characters and vehicles from The Mandalorian and Rise of Skywalker presented in the classic action-figure format under the nostalgic Kenner brand name. Although the majority are available at most retailers, the AT-ST Raider is exclusive to Best Buy.
Triple Force Friday Lego Sets
Lego has new sets based on Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian, as well as the Death Star Cannon from A New Hope and Yoda with his lightsaber. While there’s no “Giant-Man appears in Civil War” moment from these sets, there are some tantalizing hints at what might take place in Rise of Skywalker, including the return to a round sensor dish on the Millenium Falcon (maybe Lando’s been holding on to it since Return of the Jedi) and the inclusion of the Y-Wing fighter.
Other Triple Force Friday Toys
Funko is releasing new toys for Jedi: Fallen Order, The Mandalorian, and a whole bunch of figures inspired by The Rise of Skywalker. No collection of Funko Taika Watiti characters will be complete without that sweet IG-11 droid!
Nothing could make NERF guns betters — except, of course, Star Wars! Both the Sith Trooper Blaster and the Poe Dameron Blaster come with a few glow-in-the-dark darts, but you’ll probably want to pick up the dart refill pack if you’re planning on battling all night long.
The real question about these masks is: would little Kylo rather have a mask of his own likeness or the mask that looks like grandpa?
Series 4 of the Micro Force series has arrived for Triple Force Friday, and make note, Star Wars Resistance fans: Jarek Yeager is included in the selection of characters! There’s also an Advent Calendar with 24 characters to make the countdown to Christmas travel at lightspeed!
The Scream Saber is sure to offer endless entertainment. It boasts three modes: in addition to classic Lightsaber sound effects, there’s a mode that offers “unexpected” Star Wars sounds as well as a mode that lets you record your own sound effects.
If you’re looking to update your wardrobe, there are plenty of new options arriving with The Mandalorian and Rise of Skywalker.
Ultimate D-O Interactive Droid
This gravity-defying droid can be controlled by a free app you can download directly to your datapad (or any other smart device) or roll around in one of several pre-programmed modes! D-O will also play with the included ball in either Chase mode or Follow mode. And you thought BB-8 was too cute!
