Now that the holiday season is upon us, it’s time to pick up gifts for your favorite people. But, from time to time, your favorite geek/nerd/toy collector can sometimes pose a bit of a challenge. To help you out, I’ve put together the AwesomeToyBlog holiday gift guide. Ten products, each addressing a niche in the fandom, one each day. Up today is the perfect gift for the Star Wars fan who’s a kid or a kid at heart.
One of my favorite Star Wars items I own is my Darth Vader ForceFX lightsaber; but frankly, I get nervous playing with it. Who wants to break a $100 lightsaber on a ceiling fan? That’s no longer a concern thanks to the folks at Hasbro who introduced the Ultimate FX lightsabers – these featuring the same led blade ignition effect as the Force FX sabers, same quality sound effects, same awesome fun but at a significantly lower price point. You can pick these sabers up at Target, Wal-Mart, Entertainment Earth, Amazon – all for about $30 to $35 – maybe less with all the holiday sales that are bound to be on the way. No Star Wars fan would be unhappy with one of these awesome lightsabers. In fact, feel free to send me one!
