    Personally my favorite toy is the Kylo Ten lightsaber I’m a Star Wars Comic Book buff for years I’ve wanted to see the Tri- Saber in the live action movies and now its happening for years I’ve only seen the Tri-saber on the pages of Star Ward Canon comics but now its a reality and just to be able to see something that you’ve seen and saw have a purpose in the comics to now transition into the movie world is amazing, this is why to me Kylo Rens Tri-Saber is my Star wars favorite toy.

    My all time favorite Star Wars toy was the original Millennium Falcon by Kenner. My friends and I woul play with our “old school” action figures and recreate scenes from the original trilogy and the Falcon would bail us out 9 times out of 10!

    Fondest memory I have when it comes to toys, and what I believe started me on the path to toy collecting, was the original Kenner Boba Fett. I remember my oldest brother got one first and I was infatuated with it. I would sneak into his room and play with it when he wasn’t home even if only for a quick few seconds. On my next birthday my parents got me my very own Boba Fett and that little man and I were inseparable. I would fly him around the house and take him on all sorts of secret missions. I remember driving in the car with him and holding him out the window like he was flying super fast. One day my other brother was really mad at me and took my Boba Fett and hid it. I was devastated. He told my parents I left it at school and just like that he was off the hook. I took a stormtrooper figure I had and tied a AA battery to his back with a rubber band and made him into “Boba Fett”. It wasn’t the same, not even close, but it gave me something close to the Fett man to hold me over. About a week later (which is like a year to a kid), my brother gave it back to me and it was like my birthday all over again. It just meant the world to me and that figure probably fueled my insane love for Star Wars which is just as strong today.

    My favorite are the lightsabers. I loved playing “jedi” with my brothers in the back yard with them. Then later playing with my own kids and showing them the moves

    I have two older brothers. Which, when you’re young….totally sucks. I total worshiped them and everything they were interested in. Unfortunately, most of the time (especially when they hit those teenage years) did not want me around.
    They had some Star Wars action figures and some G. I Joe figures that were always around. Having seen Star Wars at a relatively young age, I fell in love with Han Solo….I mean, what young girl didn’t fall head over heels in love with Harrison Ford? I remember one day when my brothers were off playing Dungeons and Dragons when I searched high and low and found that Han Solo figure….and I made sure to hide it where they wouldn’t find him..shoved inside a seam hole in my teddy!!! LOL…not sure whatever happened to that figure, probably be worth something now! Thank you for the opportunity!

    My absolute favourite Star Wars toys were the lightsabers! my brothers and I use love playing with them all the time and pretend to have Jedi battles.

  • Tim

    My favorite Star Wars toys are the old school action figures, especially Darth Vader and Obi Wan Kenobi with lightsabers that extended via slot in their arms. I also liked the C3PO that came apart like in the movie.

  • Dave Fabian

    Ok so i ONLY had two Star Wars toys growing up! We didn’t have a lot of money, so trips to Toys R Us were non-existent. I did however stumble upon an original Kenner TaunTaun figure (for about $1) at some garage sale one Saturday morning. I was about 5 at the time that Phantom Menace came out and Since my birthday was in June I got a small Lego AT-ST set (which I thought was the coolest thing ever), from my uncle. So I think it is a toss up between those two. The reason I would love to win the light saber is because I never got a light saber as a kid, no matter how much I begged and cried for one, and so I would love to win this and give it to my 7 year old nephew as his first light saber because no kid should have to suffer without one, and what better way to introduce my nephew to Star Wars than to give him Kylo Ren’s light saber and take him to see The Force Awakens?! Thanks!

    I grew up with limited Star Wars toys, but my favorite that I had was the Ewok Village. That was the only thing my sisters would play with me, so it got a ton of use! I only wish I still had it for my boys.

  • Suzanne Canfield

    My favorite toy is my sons first light saber that I bought him 3 years ago, that is a blue Obi-Wan one. Along with that and watching the movies he has become a true fan like myself. We find it fun to dress up in Star Wars outfits for various events we participate in every May 4th. This year we went dark-side as him as Lord Vader and myself as a female rattatki warrior from the Old Republic to a Star Wars themed baseball game. Nothing would make my little true fan more happy!

  • Techtembo

    I had saved up for months by mowing the lawn to buy a Star Wars Millennium Falcon lego toy that I was determined to build. I requested my mom bring me dinner right next to it, I had spent almost 6 hours and it was the coolest thing ever.

  • Deanna Hanson

    my fave is my sons old light saber, its still works great, it has a few dings. but my son still loves it even after having it for 5 years, one of the few toys he still plays with from being little

  • Marilyn W

    light saber of course who wouldnt want to play with a Light saber she had a great time and the other kids did at well

    • Marilyn W

      Universal Orlando theme park had a blast for sure

  • Dustin Jones

    Best Star Wars toy ever for me was my stormtrooper action figure. I know everyone wanted to be Luke or Darth but if you really think about it, who had the best costumes. I never had my own stormtrooper costume but I was a clone fighter for sure. After playing with my action figures for hours it was time to head outside. With a plastic toy gun or an empty bb gun I became the empire’s soldier. Using my amazing “pew pew” voice I envisioned taking out Han and Chewy. I had everything from the Falcon to the AT-AT. I had all the figures from the Cardinal guards for the Emperor to the Ewoks. But nothing, and I mean nothing, gave me more joy then my stormtroopers. Even to this day, my imagination ( im 34) still hopes for the day I will be able to suit up with the Empire’s finest.

  • Birdiebee

    My favorite Star Wars toy is a light saber. I used to play it with my grandson and daughter who had so much fun with it. This was when my daughter was alive.

  • Austin Baroudi

    My favorite Star Wars toy would be the lightsaber I used in this video! It’s my favorite because it was just really bad***! It lit up and made really awesome sound effects! Thanks so much for the chance!

  • Heather

    My husband saved all of his 3 inch figurines from childhood and gifted them to our older son when he was 4. My boys love to play with Daddy’s toys – and Daddy joins in most of the time. It is such a sweet notion to pass those along.
