I made a couple late additions and corrections to the official “Unofficial Checklist” for tomorrow’s Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise launch. Give it another peek to so you have the most recent information including today’s surprise reveals.
Here it is! Our official “unofficial” checklist for this Friday’s merchandise launch for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Within the pages you will find the recent officially announced products as well unannounced products that we’ve been revealing exclusively here for months. Brands covered are Hasbro, Funko, LEGO, Mattel, and Jakks Pacific. There are several products that are on the list that will come out throughout the year* (i.e. not available on Friday, April 13) but I felt it best to include them anyway so you can plan ahead. They are coded with red boxes for easy identification.
This is version 1.0 so if there are any major announcements prior to Friday, I will add them.
*Subject to change/cancellation
Disney and Lucasfilm has issued a press release detailing some of the new products set for launch this Friday for Solo: A Star Wars Story – some of which you read about here first. Click on through for the press release and image gallery revealing products from Hasbro, LEGO, Funko and more.
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.
In my excitement for the new playset images, I just now noticed that there is a new Jakks Elite Praetorian Guard figure as well. This is different than the funky helmeted version we’ve seen leaked before. It also happens to be the same design as the 6″ Black Series figure we are getting as well as the one included in the playset.
Oops. Looks like Toys”R”Us has broken the street date for products from The Last Jedi according to this post over at Jedi Temple Archives. Head on over to check out the 18″ Kylo Ren, Praetorian Guard and revised First Order Stormtrooper from Jakks Pacific as well as Kylo Ren’s* Deluxe Electronic Bladebuilders Lightsaber from Hasbro.
*Shelf tag confirms “Victor” as Kylo Ren’s product code name.
Continuing our tradition of providing collectors with the most current info we can, work has begun on assembling our downloadable/printable pdf checklist for the huge marketing of The Last Jedi with Force Friday 2. Brands that are featured so far include: Hasbro, Funko, LEGO, Disney Store, Hot Wheels and Jakks Pacific. The products in this list will be continually updated until Aug 31.
Thanks to @kenobi_domi on Twitter for the heads up.
UPDATE: The direct link for Captain Poe has been disabled by Amazon. The one for the Elite Guard is still active (7/26).
Jakks Pacific’s SDCC Exclusive “Hildebrandt” Darth Vader has been fully revealed. This amazing interpretation of that poster carries over from the figure to the specially designed packaging to make for one most impressive presentation.
Thanks to JediNews for the heads-up.
