STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS has been in theaters for just about two months now, and it’s astonishing just how big a film it’s become. Everyone knew it would be big, but just how big the record-shattering success has been, is something that would’ve been hard to predict. I was in Los Angeles for the launch – one of a group of 25 writers and bloggers chosen to attend the Global Press Event for the film as a guest of Disney and Lucasfilm. As my coverage rolled-out here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, there was a common thread that toys were involved – as I brought some “props” to the junket, used in conversation about one of my favorite elements of STAR WARS fandom – the toys and collectibles. Daisy Ridley played with a Rey action figure – the same one my daughters play with on a daily basis – while Harrison Ford jokingly attempted to pocket my 1980 Kenner Han Solo (Bespin Outfit) figure, all while telling us how the toys are cool, “but are meant for other people.” People like me. People like YOU. With new action figures hitting stores, it’s no secret that certain characters have been hard to come by, and two of the hardest have by Han Solo himself, and the Rey (Resistance Outfit) figure – the one that comes with [SPOILER ALERT!] a lightsaber… specifically, the saber once owned by both Anakin Skywalker, and his son, Luke. Just as Rey happened upon that saber in the depths of Maz’ castle, I happened upon a couple of these sought-after figures, and now I’m hoping to pass them on to one of you!
