Have you felt it? There’s been an awakening…
You’ve watched all of the unboxing videos. You camped in line outside Toys R Us, waiting for a special midnight opening. Now, #ForceFriday is finally here. Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still three months away, you would be unwise to underestimate the power of Star Wars merchandising. Hell, you can’t spell swag with out SW, right?
Speaking of swag, we’re giving away some of it. Keep reading if you want to know how.
First off, we’re heeding the word of our man John Boyega. If you don’t know, the hero of Star Wars: The Next Generation recently took to Instagram with the following message.
Since sharing is caring, we’re going to share a few things as well. Starting today — #ForceFriday — and all throughout the weekend, just take the following steps and one lucky follower will win a plastic version of Boyega himself:
Step 1: Follow @TheNerdsofColor on Twitter.
Step 2: Take a photo of yourself wearing your favorite Star Wars gear (and since this is also Dragon Con weekend, extra credit for Star Wars cosplay!)
Step 3: Tweet this message with your photo:
And why not tag @JohnBoyega while you’re at it!
From all the tweets, we’ll randomly pick one lucky winner for the Finn action figure, and a second random winner will receive this t-shirt:
The giveaway ends on Monday, September 7, 2015 at 11:59pm EST. The winners will be announced on a special episode of Hard NOC Life next week and will receive a Direct Message with further information. This giveaway is open to U.S. mailing addresses only. Outer Rim territories need not apply. Sorry.
Good luck! And may the Force be with you.
