Sasaki Time's Top 10 Star Wars Holiday Gift Guide!
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens nearly upon us, here are some of my favorite Star Wars related toys and games if you are shopping for your favorite Jedi, scoundrel, bounty hunter or Sith!
1. Star Wars Battleship
2. R2-D2 Rebel Trainer
One of my favorite Star Wars toys to come out this year is this R2-D2 Rebel Trainer! R2 projects TIE fighters on the walls and you use your trusty blaster to shoot them out of the sky!
3. Star Wars Lost Stars
Next up is my favorite book of the new cannon! Lost Stars by Claudia Gray follows two new characters who grew up to become friends. Thrown into the middle of the events of the original trilogy, you will get clues leading into The Force Awakens. But the story between these two new characters will have you lost among the stars.
4. R2-D2 Shower Head
Next is probably one of the funniest products I have seen, the R2-D2 shower head! I want one for my shower! So if anyone is looking for a fun Christmas gift for me, here it is!
5. Star Wars The Complete Saga on Blu-Ray
6. Star Wars Battlefront
Here is the best Star Wars game ever made! Star Wars Battlefront puts you right into the most iconic battles in the Star Wars legacy. Plus, there is going to be a ton of downloadable content for future battles including the Battle of Jakku that will explain the events leading to that massive Star Destroyer crashed into the planet, as seen in the trailers for The Force Awakens. Below are the links for either the Playstation 4 version or the XBOX One version!
7. Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Set
The latest version of Disney Infinity it out! And the new addition is Star Wars! Below are links for the Wii U, XBOX One, XBOX 360 and Playstation 4!
8. Marc Ecko AT-AT pilot jacket
Here is the link to get one of my favorite jackets! This is the Marc Ecko Star Wars Hoth AT-AT pilot hooded men's jacket! Designer Marc Ecko created this jacket that will be sure to get you attention when you wear it!
9. Sphero BB-8
My favorite toy of the year is the amazing Sphero BB-8 droid! Controlled by your smartphone, BB-8 can roll and interact with his surroundings. After seeing the real BB-8 roll out on stage during Star Wars Celebration earlier this year and finding out with the rest of the world that BB-8 is a real, practical droid, and then finding out they were making a remote control version that works the same way, this is the hottest toy of the year!
10. Bandai Samurai Stormtrooper and Darth Vader
I saw both of these at Star Wars Celebration earlier this year! These are the Bandai Tamashii Samurai Stormtrooper and Darth Vader! Collectible figures that are amazingly detailed right down to Vader's samurai sword lightsaber!
