Force Friday 2 Checklist Now Available

After gathering as much PUBLICLY accessible information as possible, through cross referencing the dozens of DPCIs, SKUs and UPCs and cataloging leaked product that has hit shelves and eBay, we are happy to present our official “unofficial” Force Friday 2 Checklist! Our downloadable pdf should assist you in planning for Friday’s expenditures as this year we’ve included MSRPs for most of the items. A huge debt of gratitude goes out to you, the fans, for sending in your store finds via email and most importantly SOCIAL MEDIA as they were instrumental in making this list as complete and verifiable as possible. Brands covered include Hasbro, Funko, Disney Store, Jakks Pacific, LEGO, Hot Wheels, and Sphero.

UPDATE: In light of today’s new product announcements and before people start to ask “where is X on your list?” and “is this going to be available today?” questions – yes, I realize there are things missing (now) and I have no idea what will be available in your particular store at the particular time go there. The checklist was the best possible guide we could provide with the knowledge at hand.

Go Rogue Checklist In Production

gorogue_cl_logo

We are “going rogue” and producing an independent downloadable PDF checklist (similar to last year) to guide collectors through the toy aisles on September 30 and beyond. As of now, we are including most products announced (and unannounced) for Hasbro, LEGO, Funko, Jakks Pacific, Hot Wheels, and Disney Store. 

And as last year, not all items will be available on Rogue/Force Friday, but in lieu of any of those brands providing anything “official”, we felt it would be in collector’s best interest to know what to expect/budget.
