With STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS blasting into theaters this weekend, a new generation of fans will soon be looking forward to re-living the adventure, and making new adventures of their own with some of the latest toys from a galaxy far, far away. Just in-time for the film's release and the holiday season, Thinkway Toys has released a full assortment of highly interactive figures and vehicles based on THE FORCE AWAKENS, and the classic Original Trilogy. While we don't yet have these here at Rock Father HQ, the girls and I did check them out a bit on a recent visit to Toys "R" Us, and believe me - the interest was piqued. Between my love for AT-AT and my girls' love of Droids and Kylo Ren, it certainly looks like Thinkway is onto something. Check out the preview videos in the player below, and look for these at your local TRU location, or online at ToysRUs.com.
