The exclusives, the news, the reveals!

Force Friday is a few short weeks away and (aside from a few leaks) Star Wars fans have little idea what to expect. But some news was had at the two big Star Wars events in July — D23 and SDCC!

On this new Star Wars Action News podcast Daryl joins Arnie and Marjorie to bring first-hand accounts from both conventions. Find out about the exclusives, the reveals, and more!

UPDATE: The Last Jedi Product Listings/Images on Toys”R”Us Mobile

If you’d like a preview of some of the products available on Force Friday II, look no farther that the Toys”R”Us mobile website. Using my iPhone and the Google Chrome app, a simple search for “the last Jedi” brings up about 40 different products from action figures to role play items from Hasbro, Funko and LEGO.

Thanks to @Jord3217 on Twitter for the report.

UPDATE: It looks like the power that be have addressed the problem with Toys”R”Us’ site.
