Hasbro’s Count Down to The Force Awakens toy line launch
Today we received from Hasbro via their Public Relations group, a desk top calendar. This is a count down calendar, starting on Star Wars Day (May the 4th) and going to “Force Friday” September 4th, 2015 which is the official launch date for The Force Awakens line of toys. The pages of the calendar consist of images spanning nearly four decades of Kenner/Hasbro Star Wars products. It is a pretty good mix of Vintage (Kenner) and newer products.
No it doesn’t contain any of the new stuff, sorry folks we have to wait. It is a very nicely done calendar and it has brought back memories for sure.
Thanks goes out to the folks at Hunter for sending us this calendar.
Letter that accompanied the calendar:
May 7th 2015
Dear Star Wars Fans,
Before looking to the future and a brand-new line of Hasbro toys from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we want you to join us in looking back at the nearly four decades of Kenner and Hasbro Star Wars History. The enclosed calendar will count down the days until Force Friday on September 4, 2015, the day the long-awaited toys from The Force Awakens finally hit store shelves!
As you join us on our journey, we encourage you to share your favorite entries on social media using the hashtag #ForceFridayCountdown.
May the Force Be With You!
