The Rise of Skywalker Final Trailer (Reaction Video)

Monday, October 21, 2019

The final film in the Skywalker Saga is under two months away and the closer we get the more I've reflected on everything from becoming a fan to thinking about the journey that we've all been on with these beloved characters. It's been an emotional day awaiting the debut of the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker. I like to record my reaction to the Star Wars trailers because I can only see it for the first time once and I like to look back and see how it impacted me. It makes for such a great memory!

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Our Lightsaber Display

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Our Lightsaber Display | Anakin and His Angel

My husband Jason and I have already collected four lightsabers from Galaxy's Edge. We each made one at Savi's Workshop and we purchased Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren's lightsabers from Dok Ondar's. We really didn't want them to just be sitting in the closet like our Force FX Darth Vader lightsaber had been for years. We wanted to display each of them on the wall in our hallway so that we would could enjoy them every day! A member from the Savi's Workshop Builders and Gatherers Facebook group shared a link to these Clear Lightsaber Wall Mount Holders & Blade Clips. I looked into the product reviews, which were great, and I loved the look of the clear mounts and blade clips. It allows for the focus to be completely on the lightsabers rather than what is being used to hold them up. I ended up ordering two packs of four for $21.99 each.

Although I ordered the wall mount holders and blade clips through Amazon Prime they took a little while to arrive since they ship from China. They were packaged well and came with instructions and all of the hardware needed to install them. We made sure to measure how much space we wanted between each lightsaber before doing the prep work of marking where we wanted to hang them. They are all six inches apart except for Kylo's lightsaber due to the double cross blades.

For those of you wondering, it's easy to remove the lightsabers from the mount and clip for impromptu lightsaber fun! This happens often in our home since we walk by them constantly.

Overall, we are very impressed with this product and the peace of mind knowing the lightsabers are safe and secure. We would highly recommend these to anyone who is wanting to display their lightsabers in a classy way. You can purchase anywhere from 1 - 5 of these with the prices ranging from $8.99 - $25.99 with Amazon Prime.

How do you like to display the lightsabers in your collection? Please also let us know if you have any questions about these wall mount holders!

Just before the Triple Force Friday event Hallmark released Rey and Kylo Ren Itty Bittys from The Rise of Skywalker. Rey is in new garments with her iconic triple-bun hairdo while Kylo looks the same for the most part except for his now cracked helmet. Both of them are available in stores and online for $7.99 each. For any Itty Bitty you purchase Hallmark will give one back to Toys for Tots (up to a $7.99 value) up until December 24th!

As for what's upcoming, my friends over at Fantha Tracks spotted a Luke with Taun Taun Itty Bitty set as well as a Han Solo and Chewbacca with the Millennium Falcon at the PopMinded booth at NYCC. I think these look fantastic and I can't wait to see them in person! The Hoth Leia I reported on before when I went to the D23 Expo. She is too cute! My guess is that these will be released next year for the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back.

Are you planning on purchasing any of the Itty Bittys featured in today's post? Let me know in a comment below!
