With the Star Wars Force Friday Malaysia launch by Toys R Us Malaysia on 4 September 2015, we saw the unveiling of a ton of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys for fans both young and old alike. The event itself was a celebration of all things Star Wars, with fans both young and old lining up to be the first to get their hands on the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys.
The event itself that was held at the Mid Valley Mega Mall Malaysia branch of Toys R Us from 12am to 2pm and was already filled with a pretty long line of Star Wars fans at 10pm. In fact, the line stretching from the front of Toys R Us all the way to the Pancake House shop that was at the other end of the store when we got there and it was even longer near launch time with many of the fans turning up in Star Wars costumes, braving the relative heat (air conditioning was already turned up by 1030pm) in some pretty elaborate costumes.
That wasn’t all, both the Malaysian Chapters of the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion also made their appearance adding on to the geek and fan atmosphere that was already building up prior to the launch.
For the lucky first 300 customers, Toys R Us had also prepared a treat in the form of a goody bag. Anyone that paid RM200 or more for any Star Wars toys and merchandise, would walk home the goody bag that contained various Star Wars: The Force Awakens related merchandise including a calendar, a poster, a lanyard, a T-shirt, A Lego Mini-Fig and a Star Wars Micro Machines blister pack.
That’s not the only offer that was on hand either as Lego also had an offer, where the first 300 customers buying any Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lego products worth RM50 or more entitled them to a free Star Wars Rebels Lego pack. If you’re lucky, they might still have the offer on since it’ll be running until 6 September or until they hit their first 300 customers.
So need your Star Wars: The Force Awakens fix? Then maybe you ought to get yourself some of the new toys. Heck, even we were not immune to the hype and managed to walk away with some toys ourselves. So head over to your nearest Toys R Us now and geek yourself out with the Force. MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
