Do you remember the joy of receiving your first STAR WARS toy? Thanks to my partnership with Disney, my sons and I had the chance to recapture the joy of our childhood with the exciting opportunity to check out some of the awesome new toys and collectibles for the new film SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.
From 1977 to now, I’ve been a bit obsessed about collecting Star Wars memorabilia centered around my three favorite characters in the STAR WARS universe: Han Solo, Chewbacca and the Millennium Falcon (as iconic as this ship is, it’s definitely a character, or at the very least, full of character!)
My sons grew up watching the films, playing with some of my childhood STAR WARS toys and began forming collections of their own.
The second I heard about the debut of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, I knew I would soon be in a space of “STAR WARS shopping nirvana” with a whole new world of magical memorabilia to explore.
After getting a first look at the merchandise during the SOLO press junket (see video below,) I immediately started making my shopping list. When my sons saw all the cool new toys coming out, they quickly made theirs, too!
Have you drafted your shopping list yet? Hang on, there’s much more to love on the way… it’s a very, very good time to be a fan of Wookiees, nerf herders and the fastest ships in the galaxy!
