Buy these and your journey toward a lighter wallet will be complete!
Force Friday is here, friends. A cornucopia of merchandise flows our way, which in many ways is more important than the actual movie, so sayeth Mel Brooks:
But which toys are the most expensive? Which ones can you get to make your friends super jealous while draining your bank accounts to a mere sliver? Well, we’ve done our research and have found the top six. Enjoy:
Our dark side baddy of the Force Awakens, Kylo Ren has been a pretty mysterious figure… but there’s no doubt that he’s well designed. While you can pre-order the figure today, you unfortunately won’t receive it until December at the earliest. We should also note that the lightsaber won’t crackle and pop… it’ll be plastic. Yeah, our hearts are broken too but it must be said.
First Order Stormtroopers ($205 for Stormtrooper/$220 for Squad Leader/$220 for Heavy Gunner)
The First Order stormtroopers look incredibly spiffy, but it turns out they’re not alone. Not only do we get to see their rather fetchingly designed squad leaders, but we’re also getting our first look at the Heavy Gunner stormtrooper which is sort of reminding us of Vasquez from Aliens.
Force FX Kylo Ren Lightsaber ($200-$220. Reports vary)
Okay, this is obviously going to be a big item… if only to test our viable the design will be for combat purposes. While we haven’t officially seen this one for sale online, we are seeing reports that they exist and are possibly being sold. The price varies, but the actual product looks amazing.
Black Series TIE Fighter ($170)
You may be wondering why this is so expensive… and we don’t blame you. But this thing is incredible detailed. And to give you a sense of how big it is… it was designed to fit not one but two 6 inch action figures in its cockpit.
App Enabled BB-8 ($150)
So, we don’t think it’s a stretch to guess this little guy is going to be the talk of the town. It’s actually built by the same company that created the prop used in the film so you can be guaranteed it’s going to hold up under scrutiny. It’s controlled through an app on your tablet or smart phone where you can program to learn its surroundings, play messages you record, or just control it director.
If you want one, get it ASAP. We’re willing to bet out of all the toys out there this one is going to go the quickest.
LEGO Millennium Falcon ($150)
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has bought a LEGO Millennium Falcon in the past. These things are very detailed and well worth the price. So, get one, build it, then cannibalize it to make your own ship in sixth months.
