Star Wars awakens the Force

How do you celebrate Force Friday? You globally unbox the epic new products inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


This morning we were treated to the viewing of a wide assortment of products that were inspired by the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens that releases in cinemas on the 18 December.


A few of the products showcased include:



The Millennium Falcon which comes with models of Finn and Chewbacca, who are exclusive to this set, along with BB-8.


Sphero has created a remote control BB-8 that can do all sorts of things once it’s paired with your phone. The little fella is filled with technology and can move, talk and go out on patrol. But most exciting of all, you can record a hologram message onto your phone, transmit that to the droid, and then BB-8 can project it!


And of course the collection wouldn’t be complete without the Bladebuilder Lightsaber Jedi Master Playset. The Bladebuilder set allows for fully customizable lightsabers. Over 100 different combinations are possible with the sets, bringing one of the defining moments in the life of a Jedi to the hands of Star Wars fans. The finished lightsabers include the proper sound effects, as well.



All these products and many more will be hitting the South African retailers in the next few weeks.
