It's #ForceWeek here at Rock Father HQ, with #ForceFriday just four days away! If you're just joining us, September 4th, 2015 is Force Friday - the day when STAR WARS fans will first be able to get their hands on the first merchandise from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Since May, we've been taking part in Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar - presenting a daily look at items from nearly four decades of STAR WARS toys. Today it's the 2015 Han Solo and Tauntaun from "The Black Series."

We're nearing the end... #ForceFriday is just five days away, and STAR WARS fans are making plans for where they'll be to get their hands on the first merchandise from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Since May, we've been taking part in Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar - presenting a daily look at items from nearly four decades of STAR WARS toys. The final countdown begins now, with 2008's Yaddle from "The Legacy Collection" of action figures featured. When she first appeared on-screen in THE PHANTOM MENACE, I thought it was cool to see another of Yoda's species... but at the same time, I was conflicted in that having Yoda being the only one (kind of like Tigger in Winnie the Pooh) was even cooler...

Six days to go until #ForceFriday. As fans prepare an assault on their favorite stores to acquire new STAR WARS toys with military precision, it's fitting that STAR WARS RISK makes an appearance in the countdown - a Force-filled spin on the popular board game. The 2007 STAR WARS RISK game 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! 

We have officially hit the week were things turn CRAZY. Force Friday is just seven days away, and for STAR WARS fans, this day is gonna be bigger than Black Friday when it comes to shopping with a true sense of purpose. I don't have much to say about today's feature, but the 2008 STAR WARS Galactic Heroes Escape from Mos Eisley set 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! 

Paul Reubens is hard at work on Pee-wee's Big Holiday for Netflix right now, but today is his birthday, so it's totally cool if he'd like to take a break. What does Pee-wee Herman have to do with STAR WARS, you ask? Well, Paul has a small part in the STAR WARS Universe as RX-24 (aka Rex), the pilot droid featured in Disney's STAR TOURS attraction. I've never been on STAR TOURS (actually, I've never been to Disneyland, and I was only at Disney World back in 1988), but I have seen Rex, and fairly recently, too! RX-24 made a cameo on the first season of Disney XD's STAR WARS REBELS. 2013's Disney STAR TOURS Section 2 Security Pack RX Droid 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!

There's Been an Awakening... on Instagram

Instagram rolled-out a pretty sweet update today - one that eliminated the need for resizing apps. It's now possible to go proper widescreen with both photos and videos, allowing users to share their content however it's intended to be. You can do portrait or landscape orientation, but I completely blame Periscope and Snapchat for making users think that it's actually okay to suffer from VPS: Vertical Phone Syndrome. Widescreen or square for me, and to demonstrate the new cinematic look to Instagram, the very first video to display the format is a pretty appropriate one - a new clip from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS!
