Last night I had the pleasure of being in the Times Square Toys “R” Us for the midnight launch of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys. There was a lot going on including a special panel with Steve Sansweet of Rancho Obi-Wan and sci-fi artist Jeff Carlisle, giveaways, memorabilia displays and more, but the highlight was definitely seeing a group of Stormtroopers do a dance right before the Toys “R” Us staff dropped the curtain in honor of Force Friday.
Sadly I wasn’t tall enough to get a clean shot, but hopefully you can still get a good look at the guys in action leading up to the big moment. Check out the Stormtrooper dance in the video below and keep an eye out for more coverage of the Times Square Toys “R” Us sale and additional Force Friday events coming soon.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in theaters on December 18th and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Peter Mahyew, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Max von Sydow.
