2. LEGO Star Wars Rebel Trooper Battle Pack

Our rating: 9 / 10

LEGO Star Wars Rebel Trooper Battle Pack

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Great combination of characters
  • Easy build and a fun play set
  • Good display figure alone

The LEGO Star Wars Rebel Trooper Battle Pack is great for its great mixture of characters, its entertaining build, and the display value of the Death Trooper alone, despite the small size of the actual figures. I definitely enjoyed building this set to add to my LEGO Star Wars collection, so I’d say that it’s worth it.

3. LEGO Star Wars Elite Clone Trooper and Commando Droid B 9488

Our rating: 8 / 10

Pros:

  • Very high quality and durable
  • Very easy to assemble (took me less than an hour)
  • Offers hours of fun, educational playtime
  • Movable, locking joints for exceptional articulation
  • Lights up for added effect
  • Newer model does not have the con of missing pieces
  • Includes 2 weapons: DC-15 blaster rifle and DC-15 blaster pistol
  • Kids love to play with this toy
  • Quite accurate to the movie and source material
  • Highly detailed

Cons:

  • Made of 100% plastic; however, the plastic is of very high quality
  • Weapons can sometimes snap in half
  • Many reviews mention the poor quality of the box and stickers
  • Opening doors are flimsy and easily collapse
  • Shipping company or method can cause damage to the toy

The LEGO set includes 3 minifigures: a clone trooper commander, a Commando Droid, and a Clone Trooper. It also comes with two blasters: a DC-15 blaster rifle and a DC-15 blaster pistol. The clone trooper commander has the ability to sit or stand.

4. Star Wars: The Complete Saga

Our rating: 6 / 10

Star Wars: The Complete Saga

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • 3D discs are now available
  • Episodes 1, 2, and 3 included
  • You get the six complete films that the saga deserved
  • Beautiful packaging that looks fantastic on any shelf
  • You no longer have to buy each movie individually

Cons:

  • The packaging contains a lot of plastic
  • Another 4K release? Oh, please
  • Most die-hard fans already own the original box set
  • The 3D discs are available even without purchasing the set
  • Not really worth the price

This new 3D Blu-ray release of the Halo saga is a game-changer for Star Wars fans.

It contains all six films: Episodes I-VI, The Clone Wars animated movie, and The Holiday Special. It also includes Episode 1-3 in 3D for the first time on Blu-ray.

This set is great for those who have yet to buy the original box set. With the original box set comes the classic plastic casing and individual cases. If you already own the original box set – then there’s no real reason to buy this one. Even those who are currently in the midst of collecting the original box set should consider this one first.

5. Rubie's Adult Star Wars Supreme Edition Darth Vader Costume

Our rating: 5 / 10

Rubie's Adult Star Wars Supreme Edition Darth Vader Costume

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Comfortable inside as outside
  • Elastic strap on the helmet
  • The materials are high quality, durable and smooth
  • Many pockets on the costume to keep things organized
  • Excellent customer service if any problems occur

Cons:

There’s no doubt about it. Darth Vader is one of the greatest figures in all of Star Wars history. He’s one of the most popular villains in the series, and also one of the most quotable. If you’re looking for a Darth Vader costume that doesn’t skimp on the details or the authenticity, then look no further. The Rubie’s Adult Darth Vader costume is not only faithful to the character, it’s comfortable as well.
