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.

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. Why reporting monumental failure of this magnitude is frowned up is unbelievable. If anything, it points out systemic problems in procedures and practices of manufactures and retailers.  It is not our fault leaks like this happen and we will continue to report them.

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.
