Star Wars: These Are The Droids You're Looking For......

How the BB-8 Sphero Toy Works

We need a Star Wars Toy thread and since I probably will be buying a select few of them when The Force Awakens, I will post my thoughts on whatever I do buy. As for this video, if you are one that likes to stay in the dark about magic to keep that mystique going, I suggest you don't watch the video. Personally, I found it fascinating to see because I definitely was trying to figure this out before the video dropped. FYI, I purposely changed the title to reflect what the thread will be about....unless buying sh*tty Star Wars Toys is the ultimate goal.   ;)

Star Wars R2-D2 Fridge Features a Rotating Head and Hefty Price - IGN News

Obviously not a toy, but it's Star Wars and it should go here. This looks great and the idea of owning one of course is going to appeal to any Star Wars fan....but $8k? Um....juuuuuuust a bit out of my comfort zone. I'll just offer to buy 20 rounds of drinks for Kenny Baker instead and talk about all things SW.

I'm sure I'll get a Star Wars Lego something for X-Mas, not a big thing like Poe Dameron's X-Wing, but like a little $10 playset thing.  No room for toys in my place.

I've been looking around to see where I can buy a high quality Stormtrooper and Darth Vader helmet to wear. Not just some prop to stick on a desk. Also looking for a Boba Fett. The ones on eBay range from good to sh*tty quality. Just found this site. They look great, but the asking price is way out of my comfort zone. Will keep looking. My original need to get a Stormtrooper helmet was the new design on Force Awakens. I haven't seen any of those floating around yet. My guess is as soon as the movie is released, we may start seeing those for sure, which I definitely want for myself. The Chrome Stormtrooper helmet on the site is SICK!!!

You Can Buy This Lightsaber Pen for $25K - IGN News

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uN75SqM_S1U

I should be posting this in the What The F*ck thread. $25k for a f*cking pen? WHAT THE F*CK! If I had that kind of money, I would buy the life-size Stormtrooper and Darth Vader statue at Sharper Image instead and still have money left over!!!!

Star Wars The Force Awakens Hot Toys Rey Resistance Outfit 1/6 Scale Figure

Hot Toys Han Solo 1/6 Scale Figure

These look so damn good and Hot Toys in general are just all around amazing looking. The character/actor likeness they get is just unreal. But f*ck, they are insanely expensive. I want these, but at that price point, that ain't ever going to happen. Sigh. And yes, these are articulated figures that come with multiple hands and weapons, etc...
