With just a few days left before The Force Awakens debuts in theaters, it makes perfect sense that Hasbro toys are popping up in the media in various places.
On November 23rd, Jimmy Kimmel Live featured an entire special dedicated to The Force Awakens. During an interview with director JJ Abrams, Kimmel showed off two custom figures he made for the occasion: JJ as Han Solo and Jimmy as Princess Leia.
Last night on Saturday Night Live, the sketch comedy show took Star Wars action figures to another level by making their own Hasbro commercial emphasizing the toys are not just meant for children.
To see the commercial sketch head to our Facebook page where we have uploaded the entire skit.
Update – Here is the official video:
Whether you think its hilarious or too close to home, its really great to see action figures joining in on the Star Wars spot light and hype. We’ve added both of these to our “Lights! Camera! Action (Figure)! Filmography page.
And as always, if you know of additional action figure appearances on the big or small screens makes sure to let us know and we’ll add them to the database!
Until next time,
May the Figures be with you!
