Toys and products from Star Wars: The Force Awakens were unveiled in the world's first-ever global live unboxing event. The event took place over 18 hours, with new toys, costumes and collectibles getting unveiled in cities across the globe.
The new Star Wars merchandise doesn't go on sale until Friday, but fans are already going bananas over the items. Here are the the Star Wars toys you can expect to sell out fast:
When the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer was released this past November, people became obsessed with the adorable rolling robot named BB-8. So naturally fans were ecstatic when a BB-8 toy with a load of features was announced. The toy can be controlled by a companion app or move autonomously, but its feature to create and view holographic recordings will make it roll right off of stores' shelves. Available for $149.99.

2. Remote Controlled Millennium Falcon Quad
Without question, the most popular spaceship in the Star Wars universe is the Millennium Falcon. Now a remote control version gives fans the ability to pilot Han's Solo iconic spacecraft, so you can expect lines out the door for this one. Available for $109.99.

@RadekDerlatka I most want the Millenium Falcon drone, actually. So far.— Maximilian Majewski (@GoMaximilianGo) September 3, 2015
3. Remote Control X-Wing Starfighter
Who didn't want to join the Rebel Alliance and fly alongside Luke Skywalker in their own X-Wing after watching Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope? Now a remote controlled-version of the trademark rebel craft is available for fans at $69.99. Since this X-Wing is built with a high density foam to protect it during crashes, it'll be a hot commodity for inexperienced pilots.

4. Kylo Ren Lightsaber
Not much is known about Kylo Ren's role in the upcoming Star Wars movie, but one thing for sure is that fans were obsessed with his pulsating red light saber. Expect to see plenty of Star Wars fans and children wielding this blade after Force Friday. Available for $29.95.

5. Captain Phasma and Rey Costumes
Every year Halloween rolls around, countless kids dress up like Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader. The years of male characters dominating the Star Wars fashion fun are bygone with the awesome new Captain Phasma and Rey costumes. The coolest features of the costumes are definitely Captain Phasma's dark black cape and Rey's tunic and goggles. Although Gwendoline Christie is the actress playing Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it hasn't been confirmed whether her character is female. Still, you can definitely expect parents to shell out some serious Star Wars dough for boys and girls alike this Halloween. Available for $59.95.
