Why is Lobot so appealing? No one knows for sure, but Lando Calrissian's right hand man was rockin' some kind of wraparound headphones-looking thing long before those ever became real. He then popped up in "Disco" fashion in internet short films like Even Mather's classic GODZILLA VERSUS DISCO LANDO - a bit that sorta wound up emulated by ROBOT CHICKEN a decade later. The 1981 Kenner STAR WARS Lobot Action Figure 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! 

The Tantive IV aka the "Rebel Blockade Runner" was the first ship that viewers ever saw on-screen in the original STAR WARS. An iconic ship used by the Royal House of Alderaan, the Tantive IV has even made appearances in STAR WARS REBELS. The 2007 Titanium Series Tantive IV vehicle 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! 

Captain Faro Argyus was a member of the Galactic Republic's Senate Guard... and he happened to be completely down with Count Dooku and the Separatists. It didn't work out too well for him. Argyus was voiced by actor James Marsters (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER), who was born on this day back in 1962. The 2009 THE CLONE WARS Captain Argyus figure 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! 

Fact: We do not have any Jar Jar Binks toys anywhere at Rock Father HQ. The 2012 "Vintage Collection" Jar Jar Binks 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! 

I've been waiting months for this one - a chance to properly throw a slab of "Lapti Nek" on the turntable and share some words about The Max Rebo Band. Rebo, along with Sy Snootles and Droopy McCool brought solid jams to Jabba's Palace in RETURN OF THE JEDI, later expanding from a three-piece into a who-knows-how-many piece in the 1997 "Special Edition" release. Not only did they gain members and back-up dancers, but most of Snootles' vocal stylings got plucked in favor of some alien John Popper called "Joh Yowza." The 1983 Kenner STAR WARS Sy Snootles and The Rebo Band 3-Pack 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! 

It's sometimes a weird space for toys when a license exists, but there's not really a new main property to support it. That happened in the mid-00's, a time when it was assumed (and said) that the STAR WARS Prequels were the end of the big screen SW movies. Proving (to me, anyway) that sometimes two great tastes don't go together like peanut butter and chocolate, STAR WARS got mashed with TRANSFORMERS. If I were a kid, I don't know that I'd want a Boba Fett that turned into his ship, but someone actually made that. The 2006 STAR WARS TRANSFORMERS Darth Vader Crossover Figure 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!
