    It's never too early to start discussing merchandise from the final film in the Skywalker Saga! We probably won't hear anything about the products they're planning for quite a while but that's okay. While the main topic of the thread is Episode IX merchandise these threads have really become a catch all for discussing the wide range of Star Wars products released. From books to video games to the ongoing Black Series and Vintage Collection and everything in between here is where all you New Films forumers can come to talk about all things Star Wars merchandise!

    I'm excited to see that they're finally going to release a Padme 6-inch Black Series. And it's her Geonosis Arena outfit so that's cool. I'll be happy to finally be able to unite the big three of the PT films with the big three of the OT and ST films!

    I still need to catch up on the second wave of Solo Black Series figures starting with Tobias Beckett. I'll do that before the IX release though.

    Anyway, what are you all hoping to see the most from the IX product release? Or just Star Wars products in general? Discuss!

    I'm at Target looking for the Episode IX Black Series Plagueis figure, and can't find it. This store is useless.

    Episode IX diorama product looks genuine, doesn't say whether it's Jedha or Jakku.

    Still hoping it'll be a Keri Russell-looking Mara Jade figure.........

    Although, whoever she ends up playing, there should totally be a one of those upgrade kits that lets you make her be every major disguise from The Americans!

    Other than that, no real idea. I'm sure a new Rey to get whatever her lightsaber ends up being. If they make a Force Ghost Luke (or others!) that'll be pretty high up the list; Old man Lando; Rocket pack Maz-you know after that cameo in TLJ they'll have to work her into the final battle with it!

    Kylo Ren as the Supreme Leader if the costume's good.

    Status update from Toys R Us: I've got some looks from people driving by, I assume it's jealousy that they aren't the first in line. They're taking down the sign. When I asked the guy what was going on, he just laughed. I'm just going to imagine that the new sign and logo for the store is going to be much, much better. Probably feature Geoffrey the Giraffe more.

    I can hear Hasbro nervously sweating from here. The flashbacks of Peg warming Finn and Poe figures terrify me.

    That combination of Mace and Battle Droid takes me back to 1998.... waiting outside of KB Toys to pick up the Battle Droid with STAP sneak preview, and also mailing away proofs of purchase for the Mace sneak preview fig. While waiting for KB to open, I was impressed by how many folks had showed up to get their Battle Droid and STAP, only to find out there was a new toy on the market called a Furby.

    On the topic of Toys R Us and KB, it appears KB might be returning....

    Generally, I thought no these kinds of toys are fading for kids.... it's all about screens today, which is too bad because I loved figures as a kid. However, my hope is for some more reasonably high quality Black Series helmets. Love those.

    I just saw the Lego Star Wars All-Stars commercials yesterday. (I don't typically follow kids programming, so those commercials were new to me.)

    Also, I see that Lego Star Wars Allstars specials are coming to the Disney XD channel soon. Looks like it will cover the Solo movie and TLJ.

    Whatever Rey's new lightsaber is, I'm in for a Force FX edition. Maybe if Kylo gets a new one I'll pick that up too. Hell, even if he doesn't, maybe they can do a 2-pack or something.

    Take it with a grain of salt but the rumored date for Force Friday is October 4. Set your camping out schedule accordingly.

    A new black series Ren figure with his new mask I'm sure. I hope you can take the mask off.
