With the holiday season now upon us, it can be difficult to find the right gifts for the fan in your life. Now in it’s second year, the AwesomeToyBlog Awesome Holiday Gift Guide is my opportunity to spotlight some fantastic products that make perfect gifts. Today we’re looking at gifts for the Star Wars fan in your life, which can be a challenging task since there’s just so much Star Wars merchandise out there. With any luck these suggestions will be something new.
First up is the latest entry into the Angry Birds franchise, Angry Birds Star Wars. Scoff all you want, but the game is really quite fun. An iTunes or Amazon App Store gift card (so they can buy the app) coupled with the ‘Angry Birds Star Wars Early Bird Kit‘ would be a great entry point to the game. The homage to the original Star Wars Early Bird kit will be appreciated by any long time Star Wars fan.
My next entry can be found in the holiday section at your local Target store, where you can find Funko’s holiday themed Star Wars Wacky Wobblers. With three different characters available, each one of these 6 inch bobble heads takes one of your favorite Star Wars characters and puts a Christmas twist on them. Priced at just $4.99 each – these are a steal!
I’m still a huge fan of my Han Solo in Carbonite ice mold from Kotobukiya – you can make ice (obviously), chocolates, soaps and more. These are fantastic. If you decide to pick these up, I’d highly recommend gifting at least a pair of them…you can make stuff much quicker when you have more than one mold. The Han Solo is my favorite, but Kotobukiya also offers R2-D2, X-Wing fighters and more designs.
My final recommendation for today’s gift guide is only available at Toys R Us and is a bit on the pricey side, but it’s amazing. Toys R Us currently has an exclusive ‘vintage’ Millennium Falcon. The toy is a reissue of 2009’s “big” Millennium Falcon, however this release comes in a box that is a recreation of the original Falcon’s vintage box. For an older fan, the package itself will bring back memories – and if they don’t have the Falcon already, they’ll be gaining a fantastic toy. Every time I go to Toys R Us and see this huge box on the shelf, it brings a smile to my face.
