Star Wars Furniture For Padawans

Star Wars Furniture for Padawans

These days, you can find just about ANYTHING Star Wars. Adults and kids alike enjoy the thrill of being able to display the love of the fandom in their homes, bedrooms, and work spaces through various collections whether that be toys, kitchen appliances, or even furniture and d├ęcor for the bedroom. Furniture.com is the portal to several national brands including Star Wars, Sofia Vegara, and Cindy Crawford. They also have a nifty feature which allows you to track all furniture sales in your area which makes shopping for the pieces you need a breeze! Through this website I found Rooms To Go which features furniture especially for kids and teens. Below you'll find a few of my favorite Star Wars pieces from their inventory.

Star Wars Furniture for Padawans

Their exquisitely designed Star Wars beds will take your Padawans to a galaxy far, far away in their dreams. My favorite of the three is the Twin Panel Landspeeder. The engines on the Landspeeder were designed with storage in mind and they also act as nightstands! For $900 you'll be able to give that special kid in your life the chance to make believe they're driving off to claim their droids back and fight Tusken Raiders just like Luke! If you're on more of a budget, there's also a $600 option available which comes without the engines.

The TIE Fighter desk is obviously the perfect option to not only make homework a bit more fun but also to encourage reading and inspiring your young one to tap into their artistic abilities. For $400 you can replace their current unimaginative desk with the only thing better, a desk that's been crafted by the Empire itself!

Let's be real here, this rug is categorized under "kids" but no one would know otherwise. Become a part of the Resistance with this 100% nylon and mold and mildew resistant 3' x 5' rug for $69.99! But wait, there's also a 5' x 7' rug for $139.99. You're not surprised, are you?

Which one of these is your favorite?

Star Wars ComLINKS: Go Rogue | Anakin and His Angel

Star Wars ComLINKS: Go Rogue | Anakin and His Angel

(Please excuse the obvious phone app I used to edit these photos. My computer hates me right now and I am without Photoshop at the moment.)

My Rogue Friday was quite eventful! I was sure to dress for the occasion and wore all Funko fashion pieces that I received from previous Smuggler's Bounty boxes. My mom and sister also sported Star Wars shirts and met me at Target shortly before it opened. There were other people there but not enough for me to worry about getting the Jyn Erso Target Exclusive I wanted. The doors opened and there to greet us were a pair of Death Troopers and I was sure to announce, "I need a photo with them afterwards!". There was no time to waste! Everyone dashed towards the toy section like there was no tomorrow. I was baffled at the limited amount of Pops and quickly grabbed the Jyn Exclusive and a Chirrut Imwe. Target surprisingly didn't even have the full line of figures but I knew I'd be able to acquire the rest of the characters I wanted at Hot Topic. Before we headed out we each got a Star Wars Rebels kids drink that we found during checking out. They were a MUST!

At Hot Topic I was able to find Director Orson Krennic and Maz Kanata who'm I hadn't added to my collection yet. I also picked up a Death Trooper for my nephew. I was going to get myself one as well then remembered my favorite Death Trooper design would be included in the November Smuggler's Bounty box. This is what a budget and limited space equals out to folks, and one of the reasons why I'm the kind of collector that only buys the Pops I love most.

Last but not least, we headed to Gamestop where I had a couple of Darth Vader Exclusives on hold for my sister and I. He is definitely the best Vader I own! I just love the red eyes.

My mom and sister also picked up some things but all I had on my list for the day were these specific Pops (though I have yet to acquire the Walgreens Exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper). Since the movie isn't out yet, I do want to be careful as to which merchandise I get. I definitely prefer to know more about the characters before I continue to invest in more items. Though, let's be real. You can never go wrong with Vader and the Death Troopers. Am I right?

Tell me, what did you get on Rogue Friday?

New Star Wars Itty Bittys

There is much to look forward to when it comes to Hallmark's Star Wars Itty Bittys. At only four inches high, these plushies won't take up much space in your collection. Plus, they're just under seven dollars. Cute and affordable always works for me!

First up, the Rey & Kylo Clippy Duo will be available between October 12th and 14th (though I recently saw them in stores about a week ago!). Clippys are the smallest in the Itty Bitty collections at just over two inches high. This particular set retails for $9.95.

Also arriving between October 12th and 14th is Poe Dameron for $6.95! The details on his uniform are quite smashing, wouldn't you say?

And finally, we have six new plushies that were up on display at New York Comic Con today! Captain Phasma is said to be out now (though she is not currently available on the website, so stay tuned for updates), Admiral Ackbar is due out in January, and the remaining characters have a May release date. Also, keep in mind that Ahsoka Tano and Masked Sabine will be exclusive to the Hallmark website.

Thanks to Johnamarie Macias and Imperial Holocron for the photos and information!

Which Itty Bittys are on your list?

Star Wars : Attack of the Clones Tsum Tsum Official Release Date

Star Wars : Attack of the Clones Tsum Tsum Official Release Date | Anakin and His Angel

When The Phantom Menace Tsum Tsums were released earlier this year I just knew they would eventually finish the Prequel story with these addictive Twinkie shaped plushies. Star Wars fans can rejoice because the Attack of the Clones Tsum Tsums will be released on October 18th in Disney Stores. There is always hope for more Prequel merchandise!

The characters include: Anakin Skywalker, Padme Amidala, Mace Windu, Plo Koon, Aayla Secura, Count Dooku, and Jango Fett. Once again, the character detail is incredible. Can we talk about just how darling Anakin and Padme's hair is? And the fact that Plo Koon as a Tsum Tsum actually works!?

Honestly, I might need this entire set. What about you?

Star Wars: Rogue One Shoretrooper Vinylmation Eachez

Star Wars: Rogue One Shoretrooper Vinylmation Eachez | Anakin and His Angel

The Disney Parks Blog revealed many new items coming to Disney Parks this Friday for the launch of Rogue One merchandise! Included were the newest of the Eachez Vinylmations featuring the Shoretroopers (aka the Scarif Troopers). These figures are a limited release and you have the chance of pulling three different figures with some being more rare than others. The common figure has a ratio of 9 out of 10 while the other two have a ratio of 1 out of 20. Usually the Eachez figures are priced anywhere $14.95 - $16.99.

I think these Troopers looks fantastic! With these Eachez figures being released September 30th, I'm sure it'll only be a matter of time before we see a full Rogue One set! Which other characters do you want to see in Vinylmation form?

Thanks to Vinylmation World for the heads up!

Smuggler's Bounty: Death Star Unboxing

This month's Smuggler's Bounty box, the only Official Star Wars subscription box by Funko, was possibly one of the most anticipated boxes for subscribers yet! The box includes exclusive merchandise featuring two Funko Pops along with a handful of other items with a Death Star theme. Check out my video below and then be sure to sign up for the Rogue One box by November 15th. It is the last box of the year and it's going to be amazing!

Smuggler's Bounty costs $25 for each box (not including taxes, shipping, and handling) and is shipped out every other month!
