This year's Fan Expo Canada, taking place in Toronto from September 3rd-6th, promises to be an exciting one for Star Wars fans. This is due in part to the fact that "Force Friday," the day when the first wave of merchandise from Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens hits shelves, falls in the middle of the con. To celebrate, Fan Expo has teamed up with Lucasfilm and Vandor Products to release a convention exclusive The Force Awakens lunchbox!
The lunchbox will be available on Friday September 4th, and fans who purchased a VIP ticket (sold out) or premium ticket (still available) are guaranteed to get one. Fans with a single day pass will still have the opportunity to purchase a lunchbox from the Fan Expo merchandise booths. Sadly, the image on the lunchbox will not be revealed until "Force Friday."
Fan Expo Canada takes place September 3rd to 6th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Star Wars guests at this years show include Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Steve Blum (Zeb on Star Wars Rebels), Phil Lamar (Bail Organa on Rebels), and the duo behind the first arc of Marvel's Star Wars ongoing series Jason Aaron (writer) and John Cassaday (artist).
