Up until now, fans have wondered when there would be some kind of announcement or unveiling of what we could expect on the big “Force Friday” event on September 4th. What stores would have exclusives? What would they have? All we have had to go on is a number of leaks that gave some kind of confirmation of what we could expect to a degree.
Well today that has changed. Over at the official Star Wars website they have posted an announcement letting fans know that next week the first unboxing of product will kickoff in Sydney, Australia at 7:45 a.m. local time on Thursday, September 3rd (5:45 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Sept. 2), with the grand finale at Lucasfilm in San Francisco at 8 a.m. PST (11 a.m. EST) on Thursday, September 3rd. Each of the 15 locations around the world will reveal a new product inspired by the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.
