"With Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, Lenovo and Disney are bringing Star Wars to fans in ways they could previously only imagine", says Jeff Meredith, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Consumer Business Segment, Lenovo PCs and Smart Devices.

Is this a fun new way to feel the Force, or a money-grabbing gimmick?

What makes this even better - and perhaps easier - is that there's a good chance nearly everyone is going to spend more than $30 during Force Friday II. Toys 'R Us is giving away free Funko POP! And finally, there's that awesome Supreme Leader Snoke with his throne you can get at GameStop for $35.

Of course, if you are planning to spend money during Force Friday, many shops are offering plenty of good deals.

Though the Black Series figures may be the best and most affordable, a close second are these die-cast Elite Series figures.

Children can also learn simple coding and programming related to Star Wars at Apple stores.

And if that wasn't enough, there'll also be new variants of Stormtroopers and the original trilogy's red-suited Imperial Guards on offer, such as this stripey-helmeted "First Order executioner", a Praetorian guard (a design previously leaked online) and an unnamed warrior with a spear, available as a plus-sized action figure.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released in United Kingdom cinemas on December 14th 2018, and will form the eighth instalment in the franchise.

What does it mean that there are two different Poe Damerons?

In one set, Luke charges forward with his lightsaber during a battle on Hoth; another features Darth Vader and an imperial probe droid. You read where he is now and what he's doing now and sort of have to fill in the blanks for yourself. However, this one is only a Disney Parks exclusive, so make room for it in your vacation luggage.

Be prepared for the inevitable BB-9E overload, but listen, when he's THAT CUTE we can't help it.

Join us for an exciting Kids Hour starring the galaxy's favorite droids. Yet another set immortalizes Darth Vader's final scene from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, where he almost captures the Rebel with the Death Star plans.
