Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that today is the massive corporate toy rollout Disney’s calling “Force Friday,” the day when the first wave of merchandise supporting the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally hits stores. Since the midnight launch, fans everywhere have been eagerly snatching up new action figures, t-shirts, LEGO playsets, and more, and the frenzy likely won’t fully stop until 2016 (because all the kids will want Star Wars Christmas presents this year).
So, which items are standing out? Well, the undisputed star of the launch is a fully functioning replica of the “ball droid” BB-8 that you can control remotely with your smartphone, but that’s not the biggest of the items. Nope, that honor goes to Pottery Barn’s Millennium Falcon bed, which just shot to the top of every nerd with rich parents’ wishlist.
The bed’s made from solid hardwood and shaped to look exactly like the iconic ship’s cockpit. The interior features handpainted knobs, switches, and levers (not three dimensional, unfortunately) to make it look even more like your own personal fastest ship in the galaxy. The price: a cool $4,000, or $3,850 more than the BB-8 toy. It’s made for kids, but I wouldn’t be surprised if more than a few adults were pondering making a down payment on one right now.
Expect even more Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandising madness in the coming months.
