The prized possession from my own adventures during Force Friday was tracking down the 3.75″ version of Luke Skywalker.

One goodie I completely forgot about was Kylo Ren’s TIE-Silencer collectible. Thank the Maker I was able to get my hands on this before it sold out, which I acquired later Friday afternoon.

One item I was unable to track down was the Snoke 3.75″, which I discovered is included in the BB-8 playset.

It was such a blast interacting with fellow fans and employees, who also joined in on the fun.
