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.

But it was true. I had seen the future of toys back in 2004 at San Diego Comic Con and this was going to change the playing field for what was quickly becoming known as the “high end collectible figure.” As I stood there admiring this piece, it was as if I had just been dropped off by Doc Brown & Marty McFly in a time traveling DeLorean. I was witnessing the future of toys and the future looked incredibly bright.
