What are the best Star Wars toys for Christmas Presents?




What are the best Star Wars toys for Christmas Presents? What's this Rogue One business?



Coming up to Christmas, it's time to think about ideas for presents for the kids and the kid you know who never grew up.

You can't really go wrong with Star Wars presents so here's what we are picking will be the must have Star Wars toys and products that every young fan will be looking forward to finding in their Christmas stockings! These are great gift ideas and are nearly guaranteed to not disappoint!

Every link below will take you to Amazon where you can check out the price and product details and make your order.

We suggest you get in early so there will be no disappointment come delivery times in late December.

Amazon do a great job, but get in as early as you can.


Rogue One will be the highest demanded toys!


Let's start with the elephant in the room, being Star Wars: Rogue One.

Timed for release just before Christmas, the cash in on tie-in products will be monumental. With new characters and vehicles and space ships, comes a fantastic range of figures and models to choose as gifts.


This will be the number Star Wars present for 2016 - The Star Wars: Rogue One Rebel U-Wing Fighter

The U-Wing looks to be one of the coolest things in Rogue One, but it is guaranteed to be on the hot list of many boys and girls coming into Christmas

Arise, Lord Vader


The return of the Darkest Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader having some scenes in Rogue One is hugely anticipated.


It's one of the most blatant cash ins in movie history bringing back Darth Vader but who are we to argue when there is so much cool character merchandise to share with our loved ones!

Have a Jyn and tonic


While Darth Vader looms large over the movie, the hero of the piece is Jyn Erso.

She's the lastest female lead in a Star Wars film after the great step forward that Rey took and the boy and girls are no doubt keen to snap up her figurine:


Spaceships


If Jedi clashing with Sith and Han Solo were not enough to keep Star Wars fans entertained, the space ships certainly add to the adventure.

While the Millennium Falcon doesn't feature in Rogue One, there were plenty of new space ships added and the models of them will make excellent Christmas and birthday gifts (someone please tell my wife!?).

Our favourite thus so far is the U-Wing. It also comes as a Lego version!


The Force Awakens


Not to be forgotten, there is still plenty of awesome The Force Awakens gear to be had. The BB-8 remote control droid is still a very popular toy.

A big seller as is the face of the whole merchandise packaging for TFA, Kylo Ren.

Star Wars Lego


Lego is a classic children's gift and is an ideal Christmas gift idea. Lego is one of the worlds most enduring play toys and translates very well into the Star Wars line.

While the giant Death Star might be out of most buyer price ranges, there are many affordable Lego sets that make great stocking stuffers.



Star Wars Lego Video Games


If the child or young person you are buying for has an Xbox or Play Station, you could always consider gifting them one of the Lego video games.

Lego has done a fine job turning all the Star Wars movies into video games.

They are deceptively fun games that take classic moments from the films and turn them into small problem solving set pieces. Many an hour can be spent playing through them, especially as some of them have over 50 playable characters!

We had particular fun ourselves with the Original Trilogy game that came out about 10 years ago! The current Lego version of The Force Awakens has been a very popular version of the format, especially as it features the voice acting talent of Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford.

The older kids (and Dads...) might like to have a crack at Star Wars: Battlefield.
