Force Friday is now a week away, and while we anticipate the release of tons of merchandise based on The Force Awakens, much of it has already leaked out from various places. Most notably, many retailers have mistakenly placed Episode VII themed toys, clothing & more on shelves ahead of Force Friday. This has given a large number of Star Wars fans the opportunity to pick up and even buy the merchandise well before it's official release next Friday. Below we have collected another batch of photos and info from various sources that have discovered The Force Awakens items.
