When the clock strikes midnight, tonight, Disney/Lucasfilm will begin its second annual Force Friday, which will unveil all the news toys and collectibles available for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and we’ve got the locations you need to visit, in order to get your Star Wars toy fix…

When Disney held its very first Force Friday last year, in 2015, it was a resounding success in regards to the sale of Star Wars collectibles and toys.

Well, Disney is back this year with its second Force Friday, which begins at midnight tonight, and Dork Side of the Force is here to tell you where you can find the best and most exclusive Star Wars toys and collectibles.

Here’s a list of stores that will be open at midnight and/or hosting special in-store events for Rogue One, for Force Friday:
