More Interesting Toys for Force Friday Including “Bullhead” and Sarco Plank!

Force Friday

We’re just 5 days away from the highly anticipated Force Friday event. Already the shelves in the stores have started to fill up with new Star Wars toys, which are not for sale until September 4th. Of course this didn’t stop many Star Wars fans to grab a picture with the upcoming line, and give us a taste of what’s to come…

 

 

First, here are two familiar faces. Remember the X-Wing pilot “Bullhead” that we showed you a picture with (HERE)? It appears that his name in The Force Awakens will be Asty (via JediTempleArchives):

 

Bullhead

 

Also earlier today we showed you a coloring book with a better look at the character Sarco, who we first saw among the photos revealed by Vanity Fair:

 

Sarco

 

His full name is Sarco Plank and he looks cool. Can’t wait to hear his voice:

 

Sarco Plank

 

Next are these curious Micro Machines 3 Pack sets. They seem to represent 4 sequences from the movie:

 

The First Order Attacks

 

It’s interesting that they included the Black X-Wing in the “Desert Invasion” set, immediately after “The First Order Attacks”. Could we see the black X-Wing much earlier in the movie? And I am really looking forward to this speeder chase. We’ve already seen several toys depicting this.

 

Rey's

Speeder Finn

 

It’s interesting that Finn is featured on the second Desert Landspeeder from Jakku.

 

Probably unrelated but it appears that 12” Poe Dameron also has a speeder:

 

12'' Poe and Speeder

12'' Poe and Speeder back

 

And of course “The Escape from Jakku”:

 

Escape

 

Escape 02

 

New Star Wars chess, where Kylo Ren is a Queen… Nice!

 

SW Chess Black

SW Chess White

 

A Monopoly with characters that all wield lightsabers…

 

SW Monopoly Front

SW Monopoly Back

 

A 16 month 2016 calendar:

 

Calendar front

Last but not least, a size comparison between a regular stormtrooper and Captain Phasma!

 

Phasma 02

 

Is your wallet ready for Force Friday?

    The sculpting on these look so cheap. Remind me of the knockoffs you see in discount stores. The only figures/toys/dolls to catch the eye are the Black Series & 12″. Other than that the rest are a waste of material. Kinda like Marvel and their printing of their Comic Books on shitty quality paper. Paying $3.99 to $4.99 for a pamphlet type book is so greedy.

        Exactly!

        These grown ass men bitching about children’s toys not looking cool enough to hang on the walls of their mothers’ basements are pathetic.

        There are collectibles out there geared towards adults. Buy those.

        If you like to collect the toys, great do that, but keep some perspective about what they are, and don’t expect that they be made to your personal specifications. They are kid’s playthings. When you bitch about it you sound like a bunch of losers.

          Compare these to the ones released back with the re-release of the OT and you’ll see the lack of detail in these toys. With advancements one would think the articulation would be better not cheaper. Why I listed the Black Series as being better in detail. Add to the mix these new toys are $3 to $4 more than the $3.99 ones from the 90s.

            It is clear to me they are going for a bit of a retro look with the 3″ figures and micro machines, but it is also clear that is going right over your head.

            They aren’t trying to look like McFarlane figures.

          actually had a 3.75 Finn in my hand last week.. Which at the register they would not let me buy πŸ™ I didn’t examine him that much but I thought he looked OK. I have found Marvel SW Rebels etc…in the 12:inch line for 9.99 don’t look that great though.

        whenever Star Wars messes up your only defence is that “well it’s just for kids.”

        For more examples, just take a look at the responses to Rebels television show.

        • August 31, 2015 at 3:27 am

          That’s because people lose perspective about what it is. They expect it to be something it is not.

          I’m glad you brought up Rebels because a great example. The show is very clearly aimed at kids…even moreso than Clone Wars, but people expect it to be something gritty with more mature storylines. That’s not what it is.

          The problem isn’t Star Wars it is you.

            While I like Rebels for the most part, the problem really is Disney is making all these things “canon”. So what happens in Rebels effects the way things will be done going forward.

            The problem is that they released MUCH better figures for almost a decade straight and then unceremoniously dumped it sh*tting in the faces of the collectors that had kept the line alive throughout years where “kids” weren’t.

    It’s called Consort, Kylo Ren is not the Queen, but the Consort. If they wanted a biological Queen, they probably should have picked Captain Plasma. And why they didn’t pick Leia as the Queen for the light side is beyond me. She is a real Queen now. Isn’t she? It’s all fun though.

      Hasn’t been confirmed either way but it’s looking like no. My guess is we won’t see them until the second wave of figures after the film has come out to preserve the surprise. If anything we may get an episode 7 version of Han

    I don’t have much use for toys but the games quite excite me. Love the chess set! I would kill for a painted version, but I’m sure one will come in time. Monopoly also looks pretty sweet! I bought the classic Star Wars monopoly about 15 years ago and it was one of my favorite versions of the game- this one looks a bit more “Star Wars” then the original which was simply a pallet-swap of the standard board.

    The only thing I really wanted to get for my daughter was a 12 inch barbie-like doll of Rey. I assumed they would have such a toy because the prequels had an entire line of 12 inch dolls and even franchises like the Hunger Games has the same thing. Why can’t Star Wars come out with 12 inch dolls that aren’t Darth Vader (who isn’t even alive during VII) or Stormtroopers??? So frustrating.

    From the looks of all the characters, toys and locations, it really doesn’t feel like JJ is adding any new to Star Wars. This just looks like a remix/reboot of A New Hope, and a bland version to say the least.

      I was starting to feel the same way recently, but then I watched the second teaser again for the first time in a while…

      You know what? Even if it does heavily emulate ANH and the OT in general in terms of look and feel, I’m totally okay with that as long as it’s a fun, exciting and well-crafted movie that feels like SW. Personally, I’d much rather have a good movie that’s heavily reminiscent of ANH/the OT than a movie that bombards us with a whole bunch of flashy new stuff but turns out to be rather mediocre (*cough cough, TPM*). That said, I suppose we’ll just have to wait till December to see if it’s a “good” movie or not.

      I’m just gonna go with it’s probably because we have almost no information on what’s gonna happen, or any kind of perspective on it. A lot changes when you ya know, SEE the movie. Hell we haven’t even heard any of these characters really say anything. Except snoke, and an old clip of Luke lines, wit the new ones barely audible behind it. A lot changes just with hearing the actors. Their marketing is kind of genius.

    I get a ROTJ vibe from this movie, based of course only on the bits and pieces of information we’ve all received so far. My guess for now is that this will be far better than the prequels, and maybe nearly as good as ROTJ. I don’t think it will break any new ground like ANH, and I surely don’t think we are going to see a deep and gritty masterpiece like TESB. Basically, I am predicting a movie that we’ve already seen before, but one just good enough that we don’t mind. But who knows? December 18th isn’t here yet.

    *Spoiler / Speculation* Judging by the toy sets it looks like the Jakku section of this movie will be extremely action packed with a FA invasion, Poe & Kylo Ren above Jakku, then Kylo chasing BB-8 (presumably this is where Rey comes into the picture). Later on a speeder chase.. all before the Falcon comes into play. The toys also explain a bit better Poe’s likely role and outcome (he must leave Jakku in his X-wing at some point during the speeder chase). I can’t wait.

      there is a new rebel base called “FPSO” on the planet “Anasuria”.

      There is also a new rebel Frigate called “Hibiscus” – but this does not sound like something in the SW universe.

      Im not sure if this is Fact or rumor. Heard a guy on the cubicle next to mine talking about it on his cell phone. Could have been JJA or JL? what do you think?

    That Bullhead guy looks exactly what I would picture a Bothan to look like.

    I live in Huntsville, Al and was surprised to find that one of our local Walmarts already has the new Lego sets out.
    Yes, I do mean every single one.

    If anyone one here wants one a little early and lives in or around Huntsville, head over to the Walmart on Drake.

    I need that calendar. <3

    Speaking of which, Kylo Ren looks freaking energetic in a lot of his poses, recently. What if those guys from The Raid are his stunt doubles for dueling?

    TFA needs a damsel in distress. Wondering who is it… Princess Vulnebra, maybe?

    On the back of the calendar, on the bottom left center, is that an OT Stormtrooper? Doesn’t look like one from 1st Order.

    Looking at these I think I will go for the Lego sets.

    I really don’t understand that chess set. To me it is a incomprehensible mess. When you’re in the middle of a game you’d completely forgotten which of the characters represents which chesspiece.
