After far too many years, The Force Awakens from its cryogenic carbonite and Star Wars VII promises to be the biggest box office hit of the season. The only thing that can match the level of fan excitement about the event of the century is the bounty of creative Star Wars-themed presents we’re slobbering over Jabba the Hutt-style. So, here’s the Star Wars arsenal to help you get in gear and have more fun than the motley patrons of the Mos Eisley Cantina.

car charger star wars

He may not get you into the carpool lane, but this R2-D2 is still a great commuter buddy. He won’t pitch in for gas but he does charge all your devices as you drive.

The BB-8s

Competing Remote Control BB-8 Droids

These are the droids you are looking for. Long before The Force Awakens opens in theaters, BB-8 has captured imaginations of kids and adults alike. Which may explain why there are not one but two competing remote controlled BB-8s on holiday lists. Which is the one for you? Choose wisely.

BB8 Sphero app

App-Enabled BB-8 by Sphero

It may only stand 4.5 inches tall, but this diminutive BB-8 is app-enabled and takes full advantage of the droid’s Bluetooth connection to your smartphone. It responds to your voice commands, can be directed with your phone, or run off on its own in the autonomous mode. Like Princess Leia and R2-D2, you can record and view virtual holographic videos with this droid. But the best feature of the Sphero BB-8 is its adaptive personality that enables it to learn as the two of you interact. Just don’t let your teenager play with it, or this BB-8 could turn to the dark side. Rechargeable battery, charging base included. One hour of drive time after a three-hour charge. Android devices, iPhones, iPad, iPod. $149.95, Apple.com

BB8 from Target

Or the Remote Control BB-8 Target Exclusive

At nine inches, this amazing little BB-8 towers over its Sphero brother. Instead of a phone, you use the gamer-like wireless controller to direct the BB-8 to roll in any direction. His round body rolls while his head stays in one place through the magic of magnets. His expressive droid sounds make him seem alive, and it’s hard not to fall in love. Having to put it together out of the box makes you feel responsible if BB-8 cracks up and needs you to make it all better. Even better: It’s for ages 5 and up. $69.99, Target.com

Star Wars Notebook

Star Wars Special Edition Notebook Touch 15t-an000

Of course, if you’re buying a for the kind of Star Wars fan who designs their own fully operational, totally tricked-out X-Wing fighter, giving some of these presents could garner you a Darth Vader telekinetic choking. But don’t worry, even Emperor Palpatine would convince Santa he’d been a good boy for this special edition notebook that allows fans to fully immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe. That’s because it’s preloaded with rare wallpapers, screen savers, concept art, and original trilogy storyboards created by Lucasfilm artists. Over 1,100 images represent concept art that predates the Star Wars films, a collection of storyboards used to guide filming, as well as behind-the-scenes photos, set designs, costumes, models, and more. But that’s not all. After all, it’s not just the images that define the Star Wars galaxy. The notebook is also loaded with sound schemes that allow users to replace standard notification sounds with iconic Star Wars noises including R2-D2’s beeping and the swooshing lasers of lightsabers. To communicate with his subject, your giftee will also find Aurebesh, the Galactic Base Standard language, preloaded in the notebook’s font library. But wait, there’s more! They’ll also enjoy the first comic in the Marvel Star Wars series, excerpts from Star Wars Universe e-books, movie trailers and Star Wars-themed wallpaper. It’s all part of the Star Wars Special Edition 8GB Notebook from HP. $999, HP.com.
