In case you hadn't heard, today is Force Friday. I honestly don't entirely know why, or when they decided to start calling it that, or if this will become a "thing" every year like May the Fourth or whatever, but for some reason someone in the marketing department decided that this would be a cool idea. So, here we are on Force Friday. And what does it mean? Mostly, the opportunity to spend money. Lots and lots of money. Most of your usual retailers have set aside special Star Wars sections, at least for now. Also the first wave of the "new" EU reading material was released today. I have still not yet decided whether or not I'm going to get into that stuff. Most likely I'll await further review.
Did anyone go check anything out? At this point in my life, while a lot of the stuff looks fun and cool, it is unlikely I'll be buying much. It's all fun to look at and everything, but once I buy it and take it home it's just like, there. So it's tough for me to justify spending money on it. Maybe if I had more room at home.
Oh, except for the remote controlled BB-8. Have you seen that? It is so adorably cute and looks like a lot of fun. I would actually love to play with one of those.
Let me know if any of you have checked anything out or are planning on getting anything. Even if I don't buy anything I think it will still be fun to peruse the merchandise in the stores. It's cool to see so much Star Wars stuff out there again.
