Best Star Wars Toys
1. LEGO Millennium Falcon
It had to be, didn’t it - the Millenium Falcon is always one of the best Lego sets around and this one looks fantastic. You get Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Boolio, C-3PO, R2-D2 and D-O, and it has been updated to show off the wear and tear it’s been put through in The Last Skywalker. Obviously, if you already have a Lego Falcon, you may not want to get another. If that’s the case, Rey’s Speeder Chase Vehicle, Kylo Ren’s Shuttle and a Resistance A-Wing Starfighter are also available.
2. AT-ST Raider
A Vintage Collection of figurines has been unveiled, but we don’t have much information at present. Saying that, it looks amazing and we can’t help but be impressed by this AT-ST Raider. The set comes with a Klatoonian raider and, in the US at least, it may well be a Best Buy exclusive. This is a specially-modified AT-ST Raider is from the The Mandalorian TV show.
3. LEGO Star Wars RazorCrest Ship
This 1,023-piece starship includes 5 collectible LEGO Star Wars characters including The Mandalorian and fan-favourite The Child. The ship itself also has a dual LEGO® minifigure cockpit, 2 spring-loaded shooters, a sleeping area and a detachable escape pod. Ideal for children and adults alike.
4. Luke Skywalker Battle Simulation Helmet
If you've ever fancied stepping into the shoes of Luke Skywalker – and, let's face it, who hasn't – then you're going to want this. Highly detailed, this helmet features a light and sound battle simulation, giving you a surround sound experience. You can even pick which ship you pilot, and in which battle.
5. LEGO Yoda
Now you have our attention. This brilliant LEGO Yoda was another set revealed on Triple Force Friday. With 1700-piece intricacy, once built you will be able to move his head, eyebrows, fingers and toes to strike the perfect Jedi Master pose - it is 16-inches tall. It also comes with a stand, a fact plaque and small mini figure. The blurb says this Yoda is actually from Attack of the Clones, but don’t let that put you off.
6. Mandalorian lunch box
Well, there’s not much more we can add but this Mandalorian lunchbox is one of the nicest we’ve ever seen. It has a brilliant retro look that showcases the old-school Star Wars style the TV show aims for, is made of tin and is something we would be proud to put our sandwiches in.
7. Remote control D-O Rolling Toy
D-O is one of the most adorable Rise of Skywalker characters. And now you can have one of your own. A remote control lets you move it in any direction as his head bobbles up and down and side to side. It also features some electronic droid sounds, and can pick up the presence of other Star Wars toys.
8. LEGO Black Ace Starfighter Set
Another fantastic LEGO set, this Black Ace Starfighter kit allows you to build one of the sleek interceptor jets from the Star Wars Resistance series. You'll get an interactive mini-figure cockpit, spring-loaded shooters and an opening rear hold, as well as two mini-figures and blaster pistol weapons.
9. Baby Yoda Funko Pop
Baby Yoda – or, to give him his proper name, The Child – has gone down a storm. Take him home with you with this cheap and cheerful Funko Pop, which captures him in all his adorable glory.
10. LEGO Star Wars The Mandalorian and The Child BrickHeadz
You can now build your very own Baby Yoda thanks to LEGO’s BrickHeadz. For under £20, you get two figures The Child (aka Baby Yoda) and The Mandalorian, who also comes with two weapons - a blaster rifle clipped on the back and a blaster pistol in hand. They’re 295 pieces in total, so they might be a little fiddly but definitely more manageable than some LEGO sets on this list.
11. Seagate Xbox Star Wars hard drive
Okay, this isn’t a toy as such, but buying it will enhance the amount of storage on your Xbox in the best way possible. The official blurb notes: "Stow Jedi secrets and other invaluable information on a Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order-themed 2TB game drive for Xbox".
12. Black Series Carbonized Graphite Sith Trooper
The Sith Trooper is undoubtedy one of the most exciting new characters of Star Wars: Episode IX. Bright red like the Imperial Guards, this trooper has been made to look and feel premium. It has a lovely metallic finish and, if you did want to play with it, multiple points of articulation.
13. Star Wars Destiny Board Game
If you're a board game lover, you'll be pleased to hear you can now combine your love of Star Wars with a good old fashioned game. Take control of your favourite characters and decide the fate of the galaxy with this fast-paced, dice and card based game for two.
14. Lando Calrissian Funko Pop
We don't think it had quite sunk in that we are going to see the original Lando back again in Episode IX - but then we saw the Lando Calrissian Funko Pop and got pumped for the film all over again. Of course, you could go for a Rey one or even a Poe, but for us it's Lando all the way. Interestingly, Funko also released an animated short film, which sees Lando Calrissian reuniting with his old ship the Millennium Falcon.
