My good friend Kevin lives in Japan and was kind enough to take some pictures of Force Awakens promotional materials and merchandise he had come across!

First off, a clothing store called NewYorker released a catalog showcasing their new Star Wars-themed line of Fancy Adult Wear.

Ticket price was 2000 yen, which is about $16.50 going by current exchange rates.

Thanks Kevin!!
