     September 4, 2015

I already shared the Stormtrooper dance from the Toys “R” Us Times Square Force Friday event, but now it’s time for a full recap of the experience. A whole bunch of Star Wars fans waited in line throughout afternoon so that they could be one of the first to get their hands on the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys. As one might expect, most had their eye on that remote control BB-8, myself included, but the 6-inch Kylo Ren figure was a top priority as well.

You can check out my video recap below as well as a ton of images from the event including shots of the items that Steve Sansweet of Rancho Obi-Wan brought along, photos of sci-fi artist Jeff Carlisle giving fans a drawing tutorial, and loads more.
