9 toys to celebrate Star Wars Episode IX
Rey, Finn and Poe are back for the final battle between the Resistance and the Republic in Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. There are lots of tight lips around the movie but we do know that there’s a new character named Zorii Bliss…and the return of Mark Hamill! To get you even more excited for Episode IX, here are nine toys from the franchise that’ll save the rebellion, save the dream and save the play!
Before you get nervous about their allegiance because they want the Nerf Sith Trooper Blaster, remember that to defeat your enemy, you have to understand them. And ya gotta understand, this blaster is seriously cool. It comes with GlowStrike technology that charges the darts and makes them glow when fired, a five-dart barrel and a laser blast sound effect! Whether they side with the Rebel Alliance or the Sith, they’ll have a blaster that could alter the future of the Empire.
If they want to fly an X-Wing Fighter, they’ll need the helmet to go with it. And there’s none better equipped to help take on the Death Star than the Star Wars The Black Series Luke Skywalker Battle Simulation Helmet. Three internal speakers provide a surround sound experience, LED lights inside the visor simulate enemy blasts and a switch inside flips between piloting an X-Wing at the Battle of Yavin (the Death Star) or a Snowspeeder at the Battle of Hoth. Relive epic battles, create all new ones and have immersive fun the whole time!
Our heroes have their helmet…now the Supreme Leader gets his. The Kylo Ren Force Rage Mask is every evil-doer’s dream come true with sound-activated light FX. The mask glows brightly when they speak or shout while wearing it and the adjustable fit is great for any-sized follower of the dark side of the Force.
One cannot half-heartedly embrace the dark side of the Force. The power is all-consuming…and so is the play with the Supreme Leader Kylo Ren action figure! Inspired by Episode IX, Kylo Ren wields more power than ever before with his custom red lightsaber and four fully-articulated limbs. Destroy the Rebels and any pesky Jedi who gets in the way with the power of the Supreme Leader. Ooh, we’re starting to give in to the dark side…
One droid’s trash is whole ’nother droid! The D-O Remote Controlled Droid, unlike Babu Frik’s creation, isn’t made out of spare parts—but it could be just as excitable when rolling around the house. D-O’s head bobbles as it rolls in any direction and performs 360-degree spins, plus it makes noises as it goes! The latest droid to join the Resistance has arrived and it brings a lot of play with it.
It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. The Corellian light freighter pivotal in the Battle of Endor. Need we say more? YES! The LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon is an impressive addition to any Star Wars or LEGO fan’s collection with 1,351 bricks and seven LEGO Star Wars characters including Finn, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, C-3PO, R2-D2, D-O and Boolio. There are rotating top and bottom gun turrets, two spring-loaded shooters, a lowering ramp and opening cockpit. Wherever the Rebel Alliance needs an upper hand, the Falcon is sure to be there.
The Supreme Leader needs a ship powerful enough to protect him. Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle is just the menace, with the power to instill fear wherever it flies. The LEGO Kylo Ren’s Shuttle is a great recreation of the infamous ship, transporting six minifigures including Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, General Pryde Knights of Ren and more across the galaxy to expand his new galactic order. Kylo Ren’s Shuttle comes with two spring-loaded shooters, wings that straighten, tilt or retract and a cockpit that seats three minifigures. The Rebels don’t stand a chance.
Supreme Leader Kylo Ren’s custom lightsaber can now be wielded by apprentices of the dark side with the toy recreation. The crossguard lightsaber comes equipped with lights, sounds and phrases from Kylo Ren. Scan the included code to hone their skills with the Lightsaber Academy App. The path to the dark side has revealed itself. Will they follow it to power?
Jedi, Sith Lords and Wookiees can finally sit down together and get down to play with Star Wars Skywalker Saga Monopoly. Relive all nine of the Star Wars Trilogy movies and dominate the galaxy using cunning, wits and Imperial credits. Players can choose busts of nine characters that relate to one of the nine Star Wars Trilogy movies then get to work building squadrons of TIE fighters and X-Wings around the board, from Naboo to Ajan Kloss. The Star Wars Skywalker Saga Monopoly set is a great way to keep the Rebellion alive—or absolutely decimate it—after you finish watching Episode IX!
