Last night marked the first time Star Wars fans could go out and purchase licensed The Last Jedi merchandise and toys at their friendly local store (usually a Target or a Toys’R’Us, let’s be honest). Disney/Lucasfilm have turned this into a premiere night of sorts, having successfully harnessed the hype that comes with a new major Star Wars saga release. This is, after all, the second iteration of this release night, dubbed Force Friday II—sequels and all, you know how it goes. So, Holly Christine Brown, one of our intrepid contributors set out to snap some photos for us of a few of the release events in her hometown.

Let’s take a look, and we can talk about some of the merch we’re looking forward to getting our grubby little paws on. Shall we?
