You Don’t Have To Go To Disneyland For Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Toys Now

Given that going to a theme park might not be at the top of your to-do list during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the parks are coming to you–in a way. Disney has announced a line of products from and inspired by Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the Star Wars-themed land at both California’s Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

The new line of products includes toys, clothes, and even books that are attempting to bring some of the Galaxy’s Edge experience home, even if they can’t compete with the unrivaled joy of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the land’s signature ride. Among the items you can pre-order now are a radio-controlled BB-unit droid that looks a lot like the ones you can build at Droid Depot in Galaxy’s Edge, as well as a Lego version of a transport ship you ride in Rise of the Resistance.

There’s even a couple of new Black Series action figures available, including one modeled after DJ-R3X, the droid that provides music inside Oga’s Cantina. For those that aren’t caught up in the Star Wars lore in Disney’s parks, the droid, also known as Rex, first appeared as a pilot in the Star Tours attraction between 1987 and 2010. In the parks, the character is voiced by Paul “Pee-wee Herman” Reubens.
