Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Force Friday is Upon Us

BB-8 in a Hot Wheels, Kylo Ren's mask, a Lego Millennium Falcon—all this and more is available at retailers around the globe as ‘Force Friday’ is officially underway. It's a merch extravaganza, inspired, of course, by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and following the 18+ hour global live unboxing event on YouTubewhere the new product range were officially unveiled. Now more than  the 3,000 retail locations in the U.S. have opened their doors at midnight for fans to use the force of their wallets to snatch up all that sweet Star Wars stuff. 

Here's a few of the toys that we found pretty great, with the toymakers descriptions included. If you want the whole list, you can click here.
