First Star Wars: The Last Jedi Hot Toys and Cosbaby Figures

Last month, Lenovo teased Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, a new augmented reality experience that was created in partnership with Disney.

The new app will coincide with Force Friday II - a world-wide merchandising event where the film franchise shows off new toys and products ahead of an upcoming Star Wars flick - that will run from September 1-3.

Snoke can be seen along an Elite Praetorian Guard for size comparison of the toys, and despite his massive stature in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Snoke stands at a far more reasonable height in toy form. Or you can participate in an augmented reality treasure hunt at the Disney Store and 20,000 retail locations.

Force Friday II runs from 1-3 September, with The Last Jedi product line launching globally at 12.01am on 1 September. Sphero founder Adam Wilson tells me that in between these new Star Wars projects, the company worked on perfecting its movie-watching technology, specifically for its Lightning McQueen toy.

The store's activities include Jedi training games with lightsabers, opportunities to have your photo taken with Star Wars character, toy demos, video game posters and more. It was naturally a big decision for him, then, to jump back into the saddle over thirty years later when he was approached to play a part in the sequel trilogy, beginning with 2015's The Force Awakens.

A piece of information about Maz's role in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" was revealed by the site Making Star Wars, as it said: "Maz apparently introduces the resistance to DJ". She helps the Resistance by pointing them toward a "mysterious new ally". The XL plush toys will be priced at £29 each, or you can get a set of two medium characters at just £24.40.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases in theaters on December 15th, 2017.

Lenovo says that the Jedi Challenges system will be available this holiday season and is up for pre-order now at Best Buy and Lenovo online for $199.
