Are you ready for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS? I'm back with yet another Flash Giveaway, and this one is completely rooted in The Dark Side! As some of you already know, I'm one of the kids that appears in TARGET's #ShareTheForce Campaign, and now I'm giving you a shot at winning the Target-Exclusive Kylo Ren Pop! Vinyl (Hood Down) by Funko. Will The Force Be With You? The clock is ticking... again!
When I was a kid, I built model kits regularly. There was a time when you could walk into any Toys "R" Us, Walmart, Target, etc. and be greeted my massive aisles that were towering with hundreds, if not thousands of model kits waiting to be assembled and customized. Modern technology has helped shrink (and in some cases, eliminate) those aisles, and that's a shame... but it's swinging back. With so much focus on "building" and "making" these days, it's important to consider model kits as part of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Kids love building things, and the folks at Revell get that - and they embrace the "I made that!" sense of accomplishment that kids can have. They're bringing that into a galaxy far, far away with their new STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS model kits, and the first four are SnapTite Build & Play kits for kids as young as six. No glue. No paint. No tools. Pure fun. Take a look...
From International STAR WARS Day, May 4th (May the Fourth Be With You) until this past Friday, September 4th (Force Friday), I counted down the days until the release of new toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS with daily posts that featured Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar. For months, people kept asking me "How did you get one?" (obvious - I work with Hasbro regularly and was helping promote the toy launch) and "How can I get one" (for the most part, you couldn't) - questions that became "What will you do with yours when the countdown is over?" I didn't have an answer for that last question until Friday night, but I decided... to sell it. Yes, you can now own my personal STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS "Force Friday Countdown" Calendar from Hasbro. As far as I know, this is only the second one to be offered for sale (the first sold for $112), and the only one with a known history of being seen by thousands of people each day for over four months.
There has never been a better time to be a STAR WARS fan. With Force Friday having arrived, the countdown to the December 18, 2015 release of J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS in on! As some of you already know, I'm one of the kids that appears in TARGET's #ShareTheForce Campaign, and now - for the first weekend that new toys & games from STAR WARS have become available - I'm teaming-up with my friends at Wonder Forge to get one lucky reader hooked-up with their TARGET-Exclusive STAR DESTROYER STRIKE Game! Will The Force Be With You? The clock is ticking...
