September 30th Is Rogue One Force Friday

ForceFriday-RogueOneAugust 25, 2016 – September is right around the corner, and the warm days of summer (if you live in the northern hemisphere) are about to retreat. For the second year in a row, September is scheduled to have another Force Friday.

On September 30th, at 12:00 AM, major retailers will open their store doors and online vendors will unleash all manner of Star Wars Rogue One action figures, Legos, vehicles, books, helmets, lightsabers and more.

Over the last week, somewhat grainy leaked images of Force Friday products have appeared across the web. Fortunately, the Facebook page of Jedi Temple Archives has managed to obtain some hi-res photos of some of the embargoed products.

The all-new Moroff creature, which fights for the Rebels, appears to be a cross between a Wampa (the Yeti-like furry snow creature from Hoth) and Chewbacca. Scarif is the name of the tropical planet we have seen in the Rogue One trailers. The secluded planet hosts an Imperial military installation.
