Embrace the force as The Last Jedi storms into cinema

Star Wars - The Last Jedi
Star Wars – The Last Jedi

It’s here. Episode 8 is finally here! The build up to Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi has been long and painful but with Luke, Rey, Kylo and the gang gracing the silver screen this week we’re feeling the force! So much so we thought we’d put together a list of stuff to satisfy even the most hardcore of fans. So strap in. Chewie, punch it!

The perfect solution for the Sith Lord that wants to keep their receipts and wedding invites organised, whilst also declaring their allegiance to the dark side. It even comes with 12 Tie Fighter pins meaning there’s no end to the Star Wars fun  even when the board is more crammed than a Mos Eisley cantina.

Ever wanted to build a sentient sphere out of plastic bricks? You have!? Well, why not snaffle up one of LEGO’s latest droid offerings? Featuring some rather snazzy internal mechanics, this BB8 can not only rotate his head, but can also recreate the now famous ‘thumbs up lighter’ scene. An entertaining build and new best friend all in one!

The Last Jedi - X-Wing

Choose your side and take to the skies! Pilot either the X-Wing, Tie Fighter or even Speeder Bike with Propel’s impressive drone line up each armed to the teeth with laser dog fighting capabilities. Granted you’re gonna need two of these (and at least one friend) to get the full use out of them but the sturdy designs and awesome box presentation make for a satisfying flight even if you’re going solo.
