Star Wars Day, a moment when the Force binds those allied with the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance, the First Order or the Resistance together for one common purpose - to utter May the Fourth be with you.
The Force is also utterly strong with Star Wars toys. So strong it'll warm even the hearts of the coldest Sith lords.
The challenge is sussing out the good ones from a sea of Star Wars merchandise. Don’t worry, we’ve got that sorted out. From the latest toys, to the practical and perhaps just-for-show items, here are the 10 Star Wars toys you’ll need to break the piggy bank for.
BB-8 App-enabled Droid by Spheros
This is definitely the droid you’re looking for. As far as geek toys go, this BB-8 droid made by Spheros is one of the must-have items, if you have the cash. You might think its ball-shaped body looks unimpressive but rest assured, this droid can do more than roll around. It even has a Patrol mode to roam the premise. How about recording a hologram message that you can watch via the app, or yelling “It’s a trap!” at BB-8 and watch it scurry away?

Millennium Falcon Bluetooth speaker
Come on, you’ve got to admit, placing a Millennium Falcon on your desk will raise your cool factor. And it’ll go up a notch if it’s also a Bluetooth speaker, allowing you to hear Han Solo saying “Chewie, we’re home” and the Wookie grunting in agreement. This Bluetooth speaker also acts as your hands-free device, so you can take calls when your smartphone is linked to it. Oh, did we mention the Millennium Falcon also lights up when it’s streaming music?
