'The Force Awakens' Unboxing Live Stream Recap | Part I

By: Benjamin Hart

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens toy unboxing live stream is going on right now on the official Star Wars YouTube channel! The stream began just a few hours ago and hosts Andi Gutierrez and Anthony Carboni have already revealed several awesome toys from the new Episode VII line. So if haven't had chance to sit down and watch the live stream yourself, we're here to help with a recap of what was revealed.

First off, the live stream went all the way "down under" to Sydney Australia where Jay Laga'aia(Captain Typo) hosted the reveal of the new Star Wars Blade builders Lightsaber set from Hasbro. The Bratayley family was on hand to swiftly unbox the toys and fully reveal them to the world:

Subsequently, Andi and Anthony gave us a closer look at the set:

Secondly, the hosts in L.A had a reveal of their own and next unboxed Poe's X-Wing from Hasbro:

Recommended for ages 4 & up, the X-Wing will cost $49.99 and is equipped with a projectile canon and S-foils that can be opened and closed by pressing BB-8 in the rear Astromech socket. The vehicle also includes a 3.75-inch limited edition Poe Dameron figure with detectable helmet and blaster. Although the duo have some trouble attaching it's various pieces, they do give us a good up close look at the X-Wing and figure.

In addition, they revealed two upcoming books, showing off the inside and out of Star Wars: Smuggler's Run, written by Greg Rucka, and later interviewed author  Cecil Castellucci about her own book Star Wars: Moving Target, which they also revealed.

And later the stream journeyed to Tokyo Japan where YouTube star Einshine revealed three brand new giant The Force Awakens figures. Two of them being a Kylo Ren and First Order Stormtrooper standing at 31-inches tall with 8 points of articulation. The Stormtrooper includes a blaster and Kylo Ren comes with a cloak, hood and Tri-saber(with removable blades). Both cost $34.99 each. The third figure is a massive 48-inch talking First Order Stormtrooper with 4 points of articulation. Priced at $99.99 the Stormtrooper has a variety of sayings that can be be activated by either the push of a button on it's chest, or via a motion sensor on it's front.

You can watch the live stream as it's happening below. And, of course, come back here to for future updates and recaps of what's revealed in the coming hours leading up to Force Friday!
