Use the Force Friday

Use the Force Friday

What the heck is Force Friday?

What makes this even better - and perhaps easier - is that there's a good chance nearly everyone is going to spend more than $30 during Force Friday II.

Australian retailers are looking to a galaxy far, far away for a much-needed to boost to their bottom line. Well, two years ago, in America.

There's also a couple of Black Series Centerpiece figures, one of Darth Vader cutting his way through the sealed door as seen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Shop on, Star Wars fans. Now that fears have been dispelled, fans are free to flock to stores in hopes to scoring some Star Wars toys, figurines, clothing, and accessories.

How about augmented reality? "Augmented reality has always been an important part of Star Wars, and it's exciting to bring these key moments to life with this product". Although Android users will be able to take their photos with the virtual characters too, only iPhone users will be able to shoot the video.

The first characters will be available to find beginning at 12:01 a.m. September 1. It's an empty box with generic Star Wars branding and bits to put PRODUCT NAME and ACTION CALLOUT.

Toys R Us isn't running a promotion directly tied to Force Friday but it's one that happens to overlap. You can simply create a local scavenger hunt or work with other local businesses to create an interactive promotion that gets customers to actually visit your business and others in exchange for some kind of incentive.

Is there a competition? This is the first tease we have had that Jakku could be returning to the current trilogy as Rey's first arc in the Star Wars saga wraps up. According to the Disney Store website, the latest merchandise will be available online at 12:01 a.m. September 1.

When is Star Wars Force Friday II, then?

Other more recent reveals for The Last Jedi include some of The First Order's new vehicles that will be making their debut as well as the adorable Porgs.
