Disney Star Wars – Give Me Those Star Wars ….

In case you didn’t know, they are going to start selling some Star Wars toys …

Global Toy Unboxing Event

Beginning Sept. 3, fans across the world will get a sneak peak of new product inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens and available at retailers worldwide via the world’s first-ever global live toy unboxing event on the Star Wars YouTube channel. Unfolding over 18 hours in 15 cities and 12 countries, the event will see highlights from the range of epic merchandise revealed in a rolling New Year’s Eve style celebration.

The live stream kicks off with the first unboxing in Sydney, Australia at 7:45 a.m.local time on Thursday, Sept. 3 (5:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Sept. 2), and concludes with a grand finale at Lucasfilm in San Francisco at 8 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. EDT) on Thursday, Sept. 3.

Retailers on Friday will also be doing midnight openings … (including Target & TRU).

Disney Store is preparing to feel the Force on Friday, Sept. 4, in celebration of the global retail set date for product from the highly anticipated film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Disney Store locations in New York City in Times Square, Chicago on Michigan Avenue, and San Francisco on Stockton Street will participate in midnightmadness. Doors will open at 12:01 a.m. local time on Sept. 4, giving fans the first opportunity to see and purchase toys, collectibles, books, apparel and more from the upcoming film. In addition, the first 1,000 guests will receive a free Star Wars: The Force Awakens D23 commemorative fan poster.

In ALL Disney Store locations throughout North America, doors will open for business on Force Friday with Star Wars-themed opening ceremonies, offering a galactic twist on the traditional “Unlocking Imagination” ritual. Other activities taking place at Disney Store locations (excluding Disney Store Outlets) on Force Friday include:

  • A free commemorative Star Wars: The Force Awakens pin for the first 100 guests who make a purchase on Force Friday
  • Numerous Star Wars events taking place, including:

o   R2-D2 craft activity

o   Ways of the Force

o   Star Wars Story Time

o   Art of Drawing: R2-D2

o   Free Topps vintage trading card giveaway upon completion of an in-store event and while supplies last

  • Epic Star Wars theming that pays homage to both the Dark Side and the Light

On DisneyStore.com, fans can enjoy special Limited Edition product, as well as free shipping on all Star Wars items from Sept. 4 – Sept. 6.

I think if you show up dressed as Jar Jar Binks, local news will definitely interview you … well, unless of course, a 10-women band show up in slave Leia bikini outfits.

    Went to Target about 5 to midnite. Already a huge line. Did not know what to expect really. Lots of 25-35 year old fellow star wars geeks. Picked up a couple of lego sets, some micromachines, a couple of boxes action figures and 3 shirts. I think most people went for a robot of the new droid, action figures and light sabres. Was a pleasant experience.
