There are costumes available for all ages, and it is not just children who will enjoy dressing up as their favourite Star Wars character. Adults may use a costume if they are going to a fancy dress party.
There are also Star Wars conventions that are held for fans where you may choose to go along in a costume, and this could be anything from a robe that you will let you become Obi-Wan Kenobi or a full Chewbacca costume.

Figures

The types of Star Wars figures that you can buy include characters as well as vehicles such as fighter planes and major locations in the films. It can allow you to create whole scenes from the movies if you wish.
Some people may choose to collect as many figures as they can and keep them, and some people still have figures that they bought when the films were first released in the 1970s. These are collector’s items now, and so it is well worth taking good care of the figures that you have.

LEGO

Fans are now able to combine the enjoyment of building LEGO kits with their love of Star Wars. These kits can range from small kits that can be built by young children to full-size kits of the Death Star that may take weeks to complete. These are kits that are more suitable for older children and adults.

Some people will choose to keep these models intact once they have been completed, while others will enjoy the experience of building them over and over again.

Interactive Toys

These are quite a new addition to the merchandise collection and are proving to be very popular. These toys have a voice recognition feature so that they will begin to move or talk when they recognise your voice. BB-8, R2D2 and Yoda are the most popular characters in this range of toys.

There is also the option to turn the voice recognition feature off to preserve the battery, and so the toys do not start talking when you do not want them to.

Clothing

One of the most popular forms of merchandise is clothing that relates to Star Wars. T-shirts and sweatshirts with logos, characters and scenes from the film are particularly popular.
