Official Images of Hasbro's Full Star Wars: The Force Awakens Toy Line!

Welp..it's all out there now! What was once a trickle...a 3.75 inch store leak in Ohio...a Black Series link in another state...LEGO's leaking in Germany..and now...all of it..in one place...for..whatever reason! Time to boogie. Though Force Friday is still 2 whooooole weeks away...I'd gather they don't have much left to reveal..which is fine as that is the on shelf date anyway, and it's good to know what you'd like to buy before you go buy it, don't you think? US TOO! It's like we are twins. A sharing of minds. A mutual psychic geekiness. We've got a pretty big mound of toys to get through so let us begin....

Blackwake: Your New High Seas Video Game Addiction

If I told you a combat game involving British Soldiers and Pirates manning warring sea vessels where teams are involved with keeping the ship afloat, firing cannons and rifles at the enemy, steering the boat and..you know..staying alive..would you automatically think this game is too damn difficult to be fun? YOU'D BE WRONG!! I was fortunate enough to stumble upon Twitch Streamer Echoics as she jumped into an intense first time experience with BLACKWAKE. Apparently the game has been gathering funding on Kickstarter, with the inexplicable target of 7 grand (??!!) well met with nearly 48k and 17 more days to go. The Kickstarter gives this introduction:

Mopeez: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Was there ever a more perfect licence for an adorable, mopey faced plush doll? Nope..never. The Nightmare Before Christmas joins Funko's newest plush line with more adorable that a single human being can handle..so like...collect them in groups...or you might die. From the cute.

Boys and girls of every age, wouldn’t you like to see something strange? Our The Nightmare Before Christmas Mopeez are coming soon! The series features Jack Skellingon, his ghost dog, Zero, and his beloved Sally! Jack also comes in his Pumpkin King costume, as well as the Mayor of Halloween Town! Don’t forget to add Vampire Teddy and Oogie Boogie to your collection, too! These four and a half-inch plush figures are weighted on the bottom to retain a slouchy posture and adorable frustration.
