Force Friday Countdown: STAR WARS Legacy Collection Yaddle - 5 Days to Go

We're nearing the end... #ForceFriday is just five days away, and STAR WARS fans are making plans for where they'll be to get their hands on the first merchandise from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Since May, we've been taking part in Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar - presenting a daily look at items from nearly four decades of STAR WARS toys. The final countdown begins now, with 2008's Yaddle from "The Legacy Collection" of action figures featured. When she first appeared on-screen in THE PHANTOM MENACE, I thought it was cool to see another of Yoda's species... but at the same time, I was conflicted in that having Yoda being the only one (kind of like Tigger in Winnie the Pooh) was even cooler...

The 2007 STAR WARS RISK game is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward #ForceFriday on September 4th, the day when new toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS will be available at retailers everywhere!

I don't have much to say about today's feature, but the 2008 STAR WARS Galactic Heroes Escape from Mos Eisley set is today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward #ForceFriday on September 4th, the day when new toys from J.J.
