No, you're not having Deja Vu - today's Force Friday Countdown toy has actually been featured once before... but as a part of something bigger back on May 17th when there was still 110 days to go in our countdown. Now, with just 20 days left, the 1982 Kenner STAR WARS Bespin Freeze Chamber Micro Collection Playset is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward #ForceFriday on September 4th, the day when new toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS will be available at retailers everywhere! Check out a vintage commercial from the era below. "I love you." --------- "I know."

Barriss Offee is a member of the Jedi Order that I'm not extremely familiar with - just because we haven't finished going through THE CLONE WARS Animated Series. Referred to as "a rogue Jedi Padawan who believed that the Jedi Order had lost their way," she was known for creating dissent within the ranks of her fellow Jedi. The 2011 Vintage Collection Barriss Offee figure is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward #ForceFriday on September 4th...

What a day this has been for STAR WARS news and... leaks. Here we are just 22 days from the big #ForceFriday reveal of new toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS on September 4, and some folks just couldn't wait. Bothan spies have revealed that at least one location broke street date on some of the new figures, sending them immediately to the eBay system. Bounty hunters have been dispatched from Jabba's Palace to take care of the leakers, but in the meantime The Black Series Jabba The Hutt's Throne Room Set (Special Edition) is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar. Crank up the Lapti Nek!

I absolutely loved my Kenner STAR WARS Y-Wing Fighter when I was a kid. I loved it so much that I bought the late 90s (or early 2000s) Hasbro re-issue under the POWER OF THE FORCE line and am still kicking myself for parting with it in-between moves in my pre-Rock Father days. The Kenner STAR WARS Y-Wing Fighter from 1983's RETURN OF THE JEDI Collection is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward the September 4th release of toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.  Check out the vintage commercial below!

According to the Force Friday Calendar on my desk, "We all know the The Emperor is the worst person in the STAR WARS universe." Really? Do we all know this? I think that there's far greater evil out there, but Ian McDiarmid did one hell of a job with his performance as Emperor Palpatine - even when he retroactively played him younger as a Chancellor and Sith Lord (Darth Sidious). McDiarmid was born on this day back in 1944, and 2015's Black Series Emperor Palpatine figure is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward the September 4th release of toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. 

Order 66 has been discussed a lot in recent weeks, and here we are again with perhaps the first Clone Trooper to accept Darth Sidious' instructions to begin wiping out the Jedi. Cody here fought closely alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi, and then just made a move to whack him without question. The future Emperor Palpatine had a tendency to get people to do things like that. 2008's THE CLONE WARS Clone Commander Cody figure is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward the September 4th release of toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.
