Last night, we finally saw J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We had a blast watching it, and obviously, we want to talk all about it. So, why not have some fun reflecting on just a few of our many favorite moments? Don’t worry, we’re avoiding the really, really, reaaaaaally big spoilers.

StarWars

The opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is so close that we can almost smell the Tauntauns. Just like many of you, we can’t wait to watch J.J. Abrams’ movie (we’ll have a spoiler-free article about the film this Friday!), and we want to help ease your wait for The Force Awakens by celebrating everything Star Wars! From comics to statues, we have a collection of Star Wars product so big that we’re betting not even Yoda could move it with the Force.  There’s an enormous selection of Star Wars items to choose from, so to help you out, we’re going to highlight our five favorite items from a few of the categories (e.g. graphic novels, Pops, action figures, etc.). We won’t tell you the odds, but we will tell you all about these must-have Star Wars items.
