Argos to host live Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toy unveiling at midnight

Retail giant Argos is hosting a live online reveal of the first wave of toys tipped to delight Star Wars fans this year.

Celebrating the upcoming release of Disney’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the latest batch of Star Wars inspired toys, the retailer will offer fans a first look in a live online event at midnight.

Toyologist Peter Jenkinson will front the Argos Facebook Live Stream alongside James Burn, editor of one of the world’s most popular Star Wars fan sites, Jedi News.

During the unveiling taking place at 00.01 on September 2nd, viewers will be invited to join in with their questions and comments at www.facebook.com/argos.

“It’s really exciting to be sharing the new range with fans live online – as James and I get our first glimpse, so too will they,” said Argos Live Stream co-host Peter Jenkinson.

“We have no idea what’s in the range this year, but we’re confident the Argos offering will have broad appeal and feature everything from new action figures to larger props and playthings.”

Customers will be able to place pre-orders on selected toys from the range from September 2nd with the entire range available to buy online and in store from September 30th this year.
