Two weeks ago, we let you know about a mysterious new jacket on the way from Columbia Sportswear Company. At that time, it was more of a tease since nothing official had been announced. Now, the official confirmation that we've been waiting on has finally come. Just like with previous Star Wars jacket releases, Columbia will be offering the Star Wars Empire Crew Parka both online, starting at midnight (Eastern), and in stores on Friday, December 7th. Customers will be limited to 1 per transaction.

Features include:

• “Darth Vader with flames” embroidered chest patch is a replica of the emblem worn by the original crew
• Customizable name plate and “Norwegian Unit” patch allow you to identify yourself as a member of the crew
• Geographical coordinates of the Hardangerjøkulen Glacier film site are incorporated into the lining
• Sleeve stripes offer heightened visibility, while a rectangular Star Wars logo patch adds authenticity

Each jacket will retail for $500.00 and will be available in sizes ranging from XXS to XXL.

Check out the official product page right here which includes a list of Columbia stores that will be offering these jackets this week.

Additionally, a very limited amount of jackets will be signed by Mark Hamill with the proceeds going to charity only available at stores in Orlando, FL, New York, NY, Seattle, WA & Portland, OR.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
