Few things are better than finding toys that replicate your favorite comic book and movie characters. You can display them for your own enjoyment and the enjoyment of others or you can play with the toys and recreate your favorite moments from the books or movies.
Like Star Trek or Marvel Comics movies, George Lucas’ amazing Star Wars is no exception. Since the original movie was released in 1977, children have been recreating their favorite scenes at home with toys and action figures. As these children grew into adults and additional movies were released, they continued to collect toys to add to their collection.
Some played with these toys while others kept them as collectibles. Today, there are hundreds of Star Wars toys available for collecting in the first and second-hand markets that are worth hundreds—even thousands—of dollars. There are also a number of affordable toys available, many of which capture favorite moments and characters from Star Wars’ newer releases, such as Rogue One.
Here, we offer you a list of some of the best Star Wars toys and collectibles for comic lovers. Whether you are a die-hard Star Wars fan or you just love collecting toys that are inspired by some of history’s most beloved sci-fi characters like Darth Vader, this list includes some of the best toys available on eBay and elsewhere on the Internet.
