Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18th, seven days before Christmas. You can believe that Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys will be on sale long before that seven day window. The movie was basically forced into 2015 in order to appease Disney shareholders, and appeasing them means selling lots of Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise. Action figures, books, and more will litter store shelves starting in the fall, and people will buy them and hope that they’re from a good movie. It will be the critical mass of teaser culture—buying things for a movie you haven’t seen because Christmas is coming.
So what kind of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys will be on sale before the movie opens? Hit the jump to find out [minor spoilers ahead].
Rebel Scum has found a list of products Hasbro is soliciting for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and most of the listings are fairly vague, and most cover product lines that you’d expect (Nerf, Micro Machines, etc.). Don’t expect any revelations from this list, but there are some fun toys in the mix that you can probably enjoy even if you haven’t seen the movie, e.g. lightsabers and a Chewbacca mask.
