We’ve put together an extremely comprehensive list of new toys debuted on Force Friday as well as tons of collectibles and fun gifts that are strong in the Force.

In other words, if you can’t find an awesome Star Wars gift on this list, you might as well pack up, fly to Endor and live out the rest of your days in the wilderness with the Ewoks.

10 Gifts for the Star Wars Fan Who has Everything

You may know someone like this. They can amazingly recite lines or remember character names from all six movies with no less than a second of hesitation. They can talk to you at length about Who Shot First and how Lucas’s revisions of the original trilogy were an abomination. These gifts are for them, in the hopes that they don’t already have piles of branded toast.

Darth Vader Toaster / MSRP: $50


Molded in black plastic in the shape of Vader’s helmet, this toaster will delight Star Wars fans and likely horrify visiting in-laws. On each slice of bread, the toaster imprints the phrase “Star Wars” on one side. It comes with a removable crumb tray, reheat, defrost, and quick stop functions as well as an adjustable thermostat. It will also laugh in the face of your gluten allergy.

Glowing Lightsaber Umbrella / MSRP: $55


Available in red, blue, green, purple, sky blue, yellow and white, the glowing lightsaber umbrella both protects your head from the rain as well as provides lighting at night. While you can find less expensive versions of this design either sans the lightsaber handle or sans the glowing light, this is the only model that includes both.

X-Wing Knife Block / MSRP: $99


Apply a little Force to this set of knives and you will be chopping lamb for Yoda’s Rootleaf Stew in no time as all.

Death Star Beanbag / MSRP: $150


Measuring 31-inches across, the Death Star beanbag is large enough for either kids or adults who want to plop down in front of the TV to watch the original trilogy. The outer slip cover is removable for easy washing, but the evil price tag is probably what the Emperor would charge Stormtroopers who wanted one for their barracks. Still, it could make for a killer decoration in a DIY Star Wars home theater.

TIE Fighter Nutcracker / MSRP: $70


Demolish the pathetic nut rebellion with your TIE Fighter nutcracker. Crafted out of steel, the shelling power of this nutcracker may be even more forceful than Vader’s death grip.

There’s no better medium than video games to step into the role of your favorite hero or villain from the Star Wars saga. Check out some of our best picks for Star Wars video games:

Star Wars: Battlefront / MSRP: $60


While it’s not released yet, Star Wars: Battlefront is an action game that’s quickly climbing the pre-order charts due to impressive footage released in the last six months. Available for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 18, players will be able to re-enact classic Star Wars battles as well as play iconic characters like Darth Vader and Boba Fett. This game is best for older players experienced in online shooters.

Star Wars: KOTOR I, II and SWTOR / MSRP: $5 and upwards


We know, this is technically three separate games. However, we see these as a saga as every single one of the Knights of the Old Republic games are worth playing in order (and likely repeatedly). The first two are traditional RPG games, likely taking up 30 to 40 hours of your time each, and the latter is a MMORPG, a free-to-play game that offers significant bonuses when you subscribe. Different from most MMORPG games, the focus on story is absolutely amazing—basically providing 8 different story-lines for the character classes in the game. Look for the best deals on the PC versions of the first two games during Steam sales and the latter when new expansions are released.

LEGO Star Wars: Complete Saga / MSRP: $7 and upwards

Bonus: 4 Ridiculously Overpriced Star Wars Toys / Collectibles

Of course, there’s one thing that Disney knows quite a bit about: overcharging customers. Here’s a batch of toys and collectibles that you should absolutely avoid, unless you like using stacks of one hundred dollar bills for blaster practice.

$28,500 Imperial Star Wars Watch / Devon Works


Designed to combine elements from Darth Vader’s helmet and gloves as well as a TIE Fighter and the Imperial crest, this horrifically overpriced wristwatch requires a $2,500 down payment just for the privilege of paying another $26,000 on delivery. But hey, they are throwing in some TIE Fighter cufflinks with a watch that costs more than some midsize sedans.

$4,500 to $6,500 LEGO Star Wars 1st Edition Millennium Falcon (10179) / eBay


Regularly selling on eBay (or Amazon) for several thousand dollars, the original LEGO Millennium Falcon sports more than 5,000 parts with sections such as a rotating radar dish, extending boarding ramp and detachable cockpit with all the original trilogy mini-figures. While the new version is a far less complicated build, it’s also about 3% the current cost of the original version.

$4,000 Millennium Falcon Star Wars Bed / Pottery Barn


This insanely priced twin bed is crafted out of hardwood and includes a faux control panel with all the knobs and gauges on the Millennium Falcon. We recommend saving your money and use Instructables to build you own Star Wars bed. Perhaps the AT-AT Imperial Walker Loft Bed or this Star Wars X-Wing bed.

$1,300 Star Wars Stormtrooper Costume / ThinkGeek


Probably forcing you to wear this for the next 10 to 15 years as a primary Halloween costume to justify the cost, the super expensive Stormtrooper costume includes EVA molded-pieces, a two-piece helmet and a black polyester bodysuit to complete the Imperial ensemble.
