September 4, a.k.a. Force Friday — the highly-anticipated midnight release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys, collectibles, gadgets, and more — is almost here. It will be the world’s first chance to own official product celebrating the next installment of the Star Wars saga, and several retailers have, to quote Admiral Piett, “something special planned.” Check out StarWars.com’s special event guide and may the Force (Friday) be with you.
Coming early October to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta is a technical test and will feature Walker Assault on Hoth, a 40-player multiplayer battle featuring Rebels and the Empire. Walker Assault will also give you the chance to play as two of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The Beta will also feature our Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.
In addition to those two modes, EA is excited to reveal a brand-new mode that will be available in the Beta, Drop Zone. They will share more details on Drop Zone in the weeks ahead.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars sets and figures hit retail today. The Star Wars Saga Bundle starter sets were plentiful today at most retailers, along with the Yoda and Ben figures.
The exclusive figures on the other hand were a bit harder to track down. If you are unaware of the exclusives here is the list:
• Target - Sabine • Walmart - Kanan • Toys R Us - Ezra • Game Stop - Zeb
It seemed like the stores with exclusives only received 8 - 12 figures per store today. My local Target stores on the other hand did not receive any Sabine figures at all for the launch today, but they are scheduled to arrive later this week. I am not sure if this is nationwide or just my local stores here in Texas, but there is not a single Sabine figure within 150 miles.
