Whenever I think about Star Wars Black Friday deals, I remember Obi-Wan Kenobi's greatest line from Star Wars: A New Hope: "This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age. And now heavily discounted for Black Friday." I just got shivers.
Channelling the Force Ghost of the beardy Jedi Master, I've been digging up some Star Wars Black Friday deals myself this year, and maybe you'll be able to find something that will help you reconnect with your own estranged Sith dad.
With the Steam Autumn Sale now live, it's a good time to fill out your Star Wars library. You can get up to 80% off Star Wars games on Steam, including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Star Wars: Squadrons, both for 63% off. Fallen Order isn't a bad bet if you fancy a bit of Dark Souls in your Star Wars adventures, while Squadrons is an absolute must if you've been waiting for a new Rogue Squadron.
Despite the long history of Star Wars games, there haven't been too many new ones in the Disney era. This certainly isn't the case with Lego, which has become the source of some of the best Star Wars toys. And some of the most expensive. There are already some good deals to be found, and the official Lego Black Friday sale also kicks off tomorrow, so expect even steeper discounts.
Lego Star Wars: The Mandalorian The Child |
$79.99 $63.98 at Amazon (save $16.01)
The Child, Baby Yoda, Grogu—whatever you want to call him, this wee fella is just about the cutest thing to come out of the galaxy far, far away. New stock is coming soon at Amazon, and you should be able to get him before the holidays with plenty of time to spare.
Lego Star Wars Boba Fett helmet |
$59.99 $47.99 at Walmart (save $12)
The stoic bounty hunter has been resurrected as a chattier anti-hero thanks to The Mandalorian, and his own TV spin-off is right around the corner, so why not celebrate with a Lego helmet that you can't wear, but can proudly display?
Lego Star Wars Skywalker Adventures Pack |
$79.97 $50.00 at Walmart (save $29.97)
You can head back to the classic and prequel eras with this 3 in 1 adventures pack, with loads of minifigs, two different settings (Tatooine and Mustafar) and Luke's nifty landspeeder.
Tabletop and board games are just as likely to bleed you dry as Lego sets, but Black Friday discounts have already started to appear, whether you're looking for some branded Monopoly games or something with a bit more oomph.
Monopoly: Star Wars The Mandalorian Edition |
$41.99 $20.00 at Amazon (save $21.99)
Monopoly sets are getting so specific now that there's one not just inspired by The Mandalorian, but specifically the second season. You might think you're sick of Monopoly by now, but this time you have to protect Baby Yoda, who has his own adorable token.
Star Wars X-Wing 2nd Edition |
$39.95 $34.04 at Amazon (save $5.91)
The 2nd edition core set for Star Wars X-Wing gives you a pair of TIE Fighters and an X-Wing, which is enough to get you stuck into some tense dogfights, and while the discount is small, there are bigger discounts on expansions, like this 2nd edition Slave I and a fancy Trident-class assault ship.
I can't mention Obi-Wan's most famous line about the Jedi's favoured weapon and not give you a lightsaber deal, can I? There are plenty of very expensive ornamental toy swords that you can throw money at, but why not get one your kids can actually play with?
Star Wars Lightsaber Academy |
$49.99 $44.99 at Amazon (save $5, and another $9.45 with Prime)
This extendable lightsaber comes with an app that lets you duke it out with famous Jedi Masters, or friends who own their own lightsaber. If you're worried your younglings are lagging behind, this will give them a leg up. The $5 off isn't much, but with Prime the discount is a lot more significant.
And if you're looking to get in the festive spirit the only way you know how—with Vader plastered over everything, of course—here's a nutcracker to get you in the mood.
Kurt Adler Darth Vader with Death Star Nutcracker |
$45 $27.23 at Amazon (save $17.77)
I always figured this would be Vader's favourite Christmas trick. He passes you a newly force-cracked walnut, and scoffs, "Be careful not to choke on your aspirations.”
