Get your first look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lego, Hasbro and Hot Wheels toys

While the highly anticipated film won’t hit theaters until this December, we are now getting the first look at toys based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The main character action figures still remain a secret, but you can see the newly designed Stormtrooper below.

In addition to the Hasbro action figures, LEGO and Mattel are also releasing merchandise for the movie.

The Lego set won’t be for sale until after the debut of the film, but the Hasbro Stormtrooper action figure and Hot Wheels car will be available at the San Diego Comic Con.
