The BD-1 LEGO set isn’t the only bit of exciting Star Wars merch that you can currently preorder on Amazon. Fair warning, though, the items aren’t cheap. The Vader helmet runs $131.99, while the Kenobi lightsaber costs $278.99 (though it’s currently on sale for $264.99 at Amazon). There’s a reason they’re so pricy, though. These are incredibly detailed replicas of the items from the show.
In addition to looking exactly right on the outside, the Darth Vader helmet features a highly detailed interior as well. The neckpiece, mask, and hood piece all connect magnetically, so you can inspect each section. It comes with a stand to make it easy to display. It also features the character’s iconic breathing sound effects.
As for Obi-Wan Kenobi’s lightsaber, it features an incredibly detailed hilt, just like the one in the show. It has a removable blade that contains “advanced LEDs” that allow for progressive ignition. It also has sound effects for battle clash, duels, and a battle sequence mode. It comes with a stand for display.
Both of these replicas look incredible. They’re pricy, but they’re a huge step up from your typical Star Wars toys.
