    My Rey + BB-8 Hot Toys just came in and it is amazing!!

    BB-8 has magnet and counterweights so the head can move and be posed. The head lights up.
    Rey has a range of accessories and parts, the detailing and the paint work is outstanding. Haven't had a proper chance to go through it all but tomorrow will work out how I want to display them both.

    Hope it's more like TFA Force Friday than Rogue Friday.

    Because of the 'unknown' factor around Rogue One, they played things more low key.

    With the main saga films, it should get a bit more of a fanfare… but who knows...

    It's now August which means Force Friday is next month. Anyone heard any rumblings of Australian celebrations?

    I haven't heard anything as of yet.

    Toy's R Us haven't updated their page regarding it…. I wonder if it will be low key like how it was with Rogue One.

    I certainly hope not. I've seen nothing here in WA

    I wonder if there had been complications or the numbers had not been as big as before to worth the midnight launch….

    If they are going ahead with it, they better start promoting soon as we have a few weeks to go.

    I've asked Target and Big W on Twitter if they are doing an event

    That's a shame.

    Hopefully this week we'll learn something about the others. I've got a feeling that if anyone is making an event of it, it would be Toy's R Us. Later that day everyone else should have stock available to get.

    I think so too. Unfortunately, I don't have one nearby :(
