‘Star Wars’ Toys In A Galaxy Far, Far Away

From Luke’s T-16 Skyhopper model to Jyn’s stormtrooper doll, toys are everywhere in the Star Wars galaxy. James Floyd at StarWars.com has compiled an overview of some of the toys we have seen.

We all had our favorite toys growing up, including a few that let us create our own Star Wars adventures: figures and dolls, toy blasters and lightsabers, model ships and games of all kinds. But what do the children in the galaxy far, far away do during playtime? Kids are kids, no matter what galaxy they’re in, and they’ve got their own toys, from homemade to mass-produced. Here’s a closer look at some of the toys and games for children that we’ve seen in Star Wars:

Luke’s T-16 skyhopper model

Before he was flying an X-wing, Luke used to love flying his T-16 skyhopper around Tatooine with Biggs. He also liked to play at flying indoors with his model T-16, as seen in his hands in A New Hope. Did he build it himself or did it come pre-assembled? Was it from a kit? Did it have lights and sounds or carry a pilot figure? Or did Luke just go “vroom-vroom” with it as he pretended to dive through Beggar’s Canyon in search of imaginary womp rats.
