BladeBuilders-Lightsaber-boxedIn fact, it’s awakening. Episode VII: The Force Awakens is just around the corner. It’s due for release in early December 2015 and Star Wars toys are now even cooler than they used to be.

Nonetheless, with this toy, you’ll get to make up endless new adventures in a galaxy far, far away.

Cons
