The Force Awakens Hasbro's Star Wars Toy Line

A few weeks ago A Geek Daddy received a message from Hasbro asking me to choose a side in the Star Wars saga ... would I select the Light Side or choose the path of the Dark Side?  That was a tough choice but in the end I couldn't resist the lure of the Dark Side with its gleaming white stormtroopers, evil Sith warriors and cool bounty hunters. #ChooseDarkSide I did!

Hasbro followed up my response by sending a mysterious package my way.  Of course my kids and I couldn't wait to open it up! What could be inside?  The box was filled with a preview of Hasbro's new toys based upon the upcoming Star Wars sequel THE FORCE AWAKENS.  Based upon the path, I had chosen Hasbro provided a sample of toys that would help our family crush The Resistance in the name of The First Order!  So let's take a look at the Dark Side of Hasbro's new lineup of Star Wars toys that were included in our #ChooseDarkSide mailing.

Star Wars: The Black Series 6-inch Stormtrooper Action Figure 
These 6-inch scale figures are highly articulated and exceptionally detailed.  Characters from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS that will be available as these action figures include the First Order Stormtrooper, Finn (Jakku outfit), Rey with her droid BB-8 (Jakku outfit), Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, Chewbacca, Poe Dameron, Constable Zuvio and First Order Snowtrooper among others.

  1. Lightsabers! Those are my favorite :).

    1. I thought it was lifesavers all these years. Lol

  2. My husband loves Star Wars. He is counting the days.

  3. Too fun! I caught my husband looking carefully at the Millenium Falcon remote control hovercraft thing tonight, and I don't think he's even usually a fan ;)

  4. I loved seeing the #darkside toys as I received the #lightside toys myself. I really like the action figures myself!

  5. That NERF star wars is awesome. Would love to get that too for me and my kids!
