9 Star Wars gadgets that will give you the power of the Force
Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon. There are fans all over the world, and it's hard to leave your house without seeing something. From bumper stickers, to T-shirts, to movies, games, and books, Star Wars is everywhere.
If you can think of it, there’s probably some sort of Star Wars merchandise for it. And for good reason. The franchise is awesome (except for Episodes 1, 2, and 3; let’s not discuss those. And Solo gets a hard “maybe”). But for those of us who love the movies and expanded universe, we love to get our hands on all of the Star Wars gadgets we can. From household items to collectibles, there’s a Star Wars gift for everyone.
Luckily, there are a ton of options to choose from. With renewed interest in the universe since Disney’s purchase, and the release of new movies and shows such as The Mandalorian, there seems to be a never-ending stream of merch to pull out our wallets for. Collections that were once complete now need to be expanded with the introduction of new characters, and as technology improves and new devices are released, there’s Star Wars merch to correspond with it.
But never fear. We have you covered. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite products to bring a little bit of the Rebellion or the Empire into your home.
