Every year at the end of the deadline for toy announcements, Star Wars likes to come in at the last minute with Force Friday to announce their new line of toys. And with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker set to hit theaters this December, fans have been excitedly waiting to see the debut of new characters, as well as potentially spoiled scenes.
This year Star Wars has rechristened the annual event as Triple Force Friday to celebrate the wide selection of announcements and projects coming from Lucasfilm, which includes the aforementioned The Rise of Skywalker as well as the upcoming The Mandalorian series Star Wars: Fallen Order video game. So to celebrate Triple Force Friday we are going to take a look at a few of the best new toys announced from The Rise of Skywalker this Force Friday.
Hasbro's Black Series of figures announced a few new additions to tie into the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film. Rey receives a new figure based on her new look from the film, which is an upgraded version of her first outfit seen in The Force Awakens.
The Black Series figures are very poseable, and Rey's figure comes with her bo staff and Han Solo's blaster from The Force Awakens. Rey's figure also comes with her new droid, D/O, which will make its debut appearance in The Rise of Skywalker.
9 SUPREME LEADER KYLO REN
The other side of the Force will be represented by Kylo Ren, now calling himself Supreme Leader after his surprise execution of Supreme Leader Snoke in The Last Jedi. This Black Series figure features Kylo's return to his Force Awakens appearance.
The biggest change in his outfit is the return of his helmet, which has been put back together to show the raw red fused edges of his formerly shattered mask. The figure comes with a few accessories, including an additional hood for extra sithiness as well as the crossguard lightsaber handle without the blade activated.
8 LEGO MILLENNIUM FALCON
It really doesn't feel like a new wave of Star Wars toys if there isn't some kind of Millennium Falcon available. While Triple Force Friday released a few awesome vehicle options, the LEGO Millennium Falcon satisfies not only our need for the Falcon but also new Star Wars LEGO sets!
The new Falcon features moveable top and bottom turrets as well as spring-loaded launchers and removable top panels for play inside the ship as well! The set also comes with a collection of mini-figs that include Finn, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Boolio, C-3PO, R2-D2, and D-O!
7 VINTAGE COLLECTION
This vintage wave of figures features the smaller-scale figures classic collectors will remember fondly, and even feature the Kenner-like packaging to really get the nostalgia rolling. The Rise of Skywalker vintage wave is a mix of new characters from the movie and classic characters from the franchise.
Rey and the new Sith Trooper have been the most revealed characters in the marketing so far, so it's nice to see new characters included in the wave, like Keri Russell's mysterious Zorii Bliss or one of the equally mysterious Knights of Ren. Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing gear is also included in the wave for an extra hit of retro in your collection.
6 KYLO REN DELUXE FUNKO
There were a number of great Funko Pop vinyl figures released for Triple Force Friday, but our favorite just might be this Deluxe Kylo Ren figure. Not only does it feature the refurbished helmet with the flowing red cracks we love so much, but it also includes Kylo cutely piloting his brand new TIE fighter.
The TIE fighter was first revealed in the dynamite first teaser for The Rise of Skywalker, and it shortly received a killer name that leaked along with the toy announcements, as so often happens. Kylo Ren's new TIE fighter is known as the Whisper, and while the Funko doesn't quite do it justice, we still can't wait to add this to our shelves.
5 FIRST ORDER STORMTROOPER
One of the first new additions to the third Star Wars trilogy that fans were introduced to in The Force Awakens was the new First Order Stormtroopers. While similar to the Stormtroopers seen in A New Hope, the armor received a fresh upgrade and sleeker appearance.
Hasbro's Black Series has released a First Order Stormtrooper that comes complete with the Riot Shield and z6 Baton that is capable of deflecting a lightsaber blade. This highly detailed Stormtrooper figure looks amazing and will fill out any fan's collection perfectly.
4 KYLO REN MASK
Have we mentioned how much we love Kylo Ren's new mask? Not only does it tie into the character's arc over the last few movies by showing the constant struggle between the dark and light sides of the force, but it looks cool as well!
The Force Rage electronic mask comes with sound-activated light-up effects to simulate Kylo's force rage effect from the film. This light-up effect can even determine if the wearer is speaking or yelling and will adjust the lighting appropriately.
3 SITH TROOPER
The Sith Trooper is the newest addition to the varied ranks of Stormtroopers we've seen over the past 40 years of Star Wars films. The dark red of the armor stands out amongst the usual white of the Stormtroopers and reflects their status among the other Troopers in the First Order.
We first saw the red variation of the armor back in Return of the Jedi worn by Emperor Palpatine's Royal Guard, and most recently in The Last Jedi as worn by Supreme Leader Snoke's Elite Praetorian Guard. The Sith Trooper variant is likely Kylo Ren's elite squadron of Troopers, though we will know more when The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters.
2 REMOTE-CONTROLLED D/O DROID
Even the droids are getting a new addition in The Rise of Skywalker as D/O is set to join our heroes in the fight against the First Order. We really don't know much about the new droid besides he is allegedly a friend of BB-8's and is also included in the recently revealed Rey Black Series figure we previously discussed.
Whatever D/O's role in the movie turns out to be, after the success of previous remote-controlled droids like R2-D2 and BB-8, we can't wait to get our hands on the new D/O remote-controlled toy from Disney and Hasbro.
1 KYLO REN LIGHTSABER REPLICA
Now fans can really channel their own Kylo Ren with this epic Force FX Elite prop replica lightsaber. This deluxe Kylo Ren replica brings his unique crossguard lightsaber to life with updated light-up features and sounds.
Kylo Ren's lightsaber was one of the more interesting weapons included in the new Star Wars trilogy, and while we are equally as excited about Rey's new flip-open double-bladed lightsaber that was viewed in the trailer, we still can't help but get excited about this highly-detailed collectible crossguard.
