If I were to tell you that we have some pretty serious Star Wars fans in our household, it would definitely be an understatement. Star Wars plays a part in our daily lives around here as hubby, the kids AND I all have the Topps Star Wars Card Trader App and we chase and trade cards on a daily basis.
SO, when I was invited to attend the LIVE Star Wars: The Force Awakens unboxing event to kick off Fan Expo in Toronto, I definitely had some eager people who wanted to attend with me.
This event spanned from Sydney to San Francisco and was streamed LIVE for 18 hours on the Star Wars Youtube Channel. Two amazing Star Wars toys were unveiled at 9am ET at the John Bassett Theatre in the Metro Convention Centre. The event was hosted by Canadian YouTuber Corey Vidal and the toys were unboxed by Martin Glaude (Quill18) – I loved their enthusiasm and energy!
The brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise will be on shelves as of 12:00am on Friday, September 4.
Waking up extra early was good training for our back to school routine and Star Wars was more than enough incentive to get the children up and at ’em at the crack of dawn.
We saw two amazing remote control toys revealed. It was a magical experience and of course, the kids would like to head straight to Toys R Us tonight to get them. Sometimes tells me, these might be on a wish list or two this upcoming holiday season!
Star Wars Force Friday?
