There will be plenty of Star Wars toy news coming out of this weekend’s Toy Fair in New York City.Â Everything from Lightsabers to new LEGO sets will be shown, and we’ve got a sneak peek of some of the new toys to keep you occupied for the next 365 days.
Boba Fett Helmet
Show off your bounty hunting skills like Boba Fett, the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy, with the STAR WARS BOBA FETT HELMET.Â Impressively designed and styled, the STAR WARS BOBA FETT HELMET allows children to pretend to be their favorite bounty hunter. (Approximate Retail Price: $34.99; Ages: 4 & up; Available: August 1, 2010)
General Grievous Lightsaber
JEDI warriors have long recognized the prowess of GENERAL GRIEVOUS as a highly skilled, elusive and often multiple-LIGHTSABER-wielding adversary. Now, kids can engage in LIGHTSABER battles just like this powerful cyborg with the new STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS GENERAL GRIEVOUS LIGHTSABER.Â Battle with the power of GENERAL GRIEVOUS by spinning the two LIGHTSABERS simultaneously in one hand, take out the spinner and connect the two LIGHTSABERS for double-bladed LIGHTSABER action, or use the two separately to ward off an opponent.Â (Approximate Retail Price: $34.99; Ages: 6 & up; Available: August 1, 2010)
