First Lines of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Merchandise Unveiled
After announcing that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is heading to Comic Con, LucasFilm has revealed some of the Star Wars merchandise which will be debuting at the July 9th-12th event in San Diego. Ranging from Lego First Order Stormtroopers to Hot Wheels cars in a Stormtrooper design, the merchandise will be available to San Diego Comic Con visitors almost 2 months before they debut in stores.

However, one of the hottest properties is likely to be this Black Series First Order Stormtrooper from Hasbro.

The Black Series trooper comes with Comic Con exclusive packaging and is available in a very limited number, with a small supply being released on HasbroToyShop.com after the event. Priced at $24.99 this 6 inch figure is probably going to be sold out within a day or two of Comic Con's doors being thrown open.

Up next is a buildable 9 inch First Order Stormtrooper from Lego. But, before you get excited, this piece of merch won't actually be available to purchase at Comic Con. Instead, we'll have to settle for looking at it through a display case while we wait for it to hit stores in January 2016. As a side note, Lego has revealed that their Comic Con booth will feature a lifesize First Order Stormtrooper created entirely out of original Lego bricks.

Finally, there's a Hot Wheels First Order Stormtrooper die-cast car, which will serve as a continuation of Mattel and Hot Wheels' long-standing relationship with the Star Wars franchise. It's no C-3PO VW Camper Van or Yoda Smart Car, but it's still pretty neat.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18th 2015. Star Wars merchandise lands in stores on September 4th at 12:01 am.
