Star Wars Toys: Exclusive Previews from Chicago Preview


Toy Wizards prediction: With the amount of hate there is for the new Star Wars movies from Disney, there will be a resurgence in ‘Those weren’t so bad’ love and nostalgia for Episodes I, II, and III.

Although I argue that Episode III should always be on your love-list. Because it’s just so beautiful.

That’s because it’s so in love.

No…it’s because I’m so in love with….

Liar! You turned her against me!

You have done that…yourself!

Wait, please. Don’t leave.

Let’s all just agree that Darth Maul was cool as hell and wildly underutilized.



To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, an exclusive set of action figures will pay homage to the iconic red cardbacks from the original toy line that hit shelves two decades ago in support of Episode I.

These are just some of the exclusive toys and bobbleheads that you can get your hands on at Star Wars Celebration next month.

Today, The Star Wars Show and have your first look at what three of the top toymakers are bringing to the Windy City — and everything you need to know about entering the online lottery for the chance to take them home.

Hasbro will celebrate the duel between Darth Maul and a young Obi-Wan Kenobi with a pair of 6-inch Black Series figures on special Episode I cardbacks; both releases utilize the innovative Photo Real paint application technique.

LEGO has crafted a special brick bust in the visage of the mask of Darth Vader, with limited availability at Target.

And Funko has given a special chrome blue treatment to six of its character sculpts in the POP! line.

The bobblehead range is also releasing new Funko POP! figures of Watto and Darth Maul.
