It has now been revealed that the country of New Zealand will be the first in the world to officially receive Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens toys.
The Star Wars New Zealand Facebook page announced: “NZ will be the first country in the world to officially see the Episode 7 toys in retail stores on Sept 4th”
September 4th 2015 is being called “Force Friday”. Several New Zealand retailers will be holding midnight launches to welcome the new toys. You can see the locations below.
Auckland region:, Toyworld Albany, Toyworld Sylvia Park, Toyco St Lukes, The Warehouse Albany and The Warehouse Manakau
Wellington region: Toyworld Wellington (Ballance Street) and The Warehouse Lyall Bay
Christchurch region: Toyworld Tower Junction, Christchurch The Warehouse, Riccartion and The Warehouse, Invercargill
In case you are wondering why New Zealand get the toys first, it’s because of time zones. New Zealand is ahead of every other country in the world when it comes to the time.
Some toys have already been leaked and they show some new characters and more. Hopefully when September 4th comes, some more surprises are revealed. We will also get a closer look at the merchandise too.
