Star Wars 2019 Itty Bittys - Luke in Landspeeder, Gamorrean Guard and More! | Anakin and His Angel

Most of you should know by now that I like to stay up-to-date on all of the latest Star Wars Itty Bitty news. However, I must've been living far off on the planet Jakku during the time of all the New York Comic Con announcements. The 2019 Star Wars Itty Bittys were revealed at the Popminded by Hallmark booth and I only just discovered them this morning thanks to my friends at Fantha Tracks.

This is the second time we've seen an Itty Bitty version of Luke Skywalker featured with a vehicle. The first one was the 40th Anniversary Special Edition Luke with X-Wing. These advanced Itty Bittys usually run for about $16.95 so I expect that the price point for Luke with his Land Speeder will be the same. I think he looks adorable in his Tatooine getup!

UPDATE: It seems this Collector's Set is already turning up in Hallmark stores. This is not unusual for it to be early as release dates are often all over the place. You can see an in-hand photo on the Megs Itty Bittys Instagram account. Be on the look out!

With little to no merchandise of Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes I won't be surprised if this 4-pack Collector's Set sells out quickly. It's such an iconic scene from A New Hope and I think it's fun to see it re-imagined in plush form. Collector's Sets usually retail for $29.95.

In my opinion the Gamorrean Guard is the perfect candidate for an Itty Bitty. Look at the cute grumpy face! As for Emperor Palpatine, he looks more sad than evil and like a face floating in an oversized blanket. Chubby or silly? You decide. Single Itty Bittys run anywhere from $6.95 to $7.99 depending on if they're Limited Edition or not. Plushies that come with a cardback are priced at $14.99 but at this point these two appear to be a regular release so they should be about $7 or $8.

Star Wars "Fanmade" Christmas Gift Guide - $10 & Under

Thursday, December 6, 2018
Ahh, December. The most wonderful time of the year! I enjoy putting together at least once Christmas guide every year and I thought of a great theme this time around! Discovering fanmade Star Wars collectibles and supporting small businesses always puts a smile on my face. If you can relate, this Christmas Guide (or whatever you choose to celebrate) is going to be the perfect fit for you. From fun stickers to stunning prints, everything is priced at $10 and under. These would also make great stocking stuffers or fun add-on gifts. So, let's get shopping!

Star Wars
Rebel Art Underground | $4.00

Let's face it, finding Darth Maul merchandise isn't always easy. Luckily my friend Austin recently created a super rad 3" Darth Maul Sticker (which is also available as a pin). The sticker has a UV laminate that will protect it from scratches, rain and sunlight! This item is ready to ship in 1-2 business days so it will arrive by Christmas!


Star Wars
Karen Hallion | $5.00

The "She Series" by Karen is a collection of lovely 5x7 prints of admirable women in fandom. I especially love this one of Rey and I think it would make fantastic desk or wall art. It comes in a sealed plastic sleeve and may arrive by Christmas if you order it today!


Star Wars
Resistance Broadcast | $2.50

Every Kylo Ren fan should own this sticker, you know what I mean? The size of the sticker is 3 1/8x2 7/8 and has a semi gloss finish.

Choose 1-3 Day Priority Mail shipping at check-out to ensure it arrives by Christmas day!


Star Wars
Tao Hua Wu | $6.00

Reylo fans just might die over the cuteness overload of this festive sticker sheet featuring Kylo Ren, Rey, Chewbacca, BB-8 and even a couple of porgs! They ship for free to 50 countries but if you want it in time for Christmas you can pay $5.00 which includes tracking.


Star Wars
Anima Eterna | $8.20

This watercolor print of the Skywalker family is stunning and would make a great addition to someone's Star Wars collection.

It is ready to ship in 1-3 business days so it will arrive in time for you to place under the tree!

It's been two years since I last styled an outfit based off of a Star Wars character though I never actually wanted that much time to pass before doing another one. Some of you may remember me saying I was working on a Death Trooper outfit but I never stumbled upon the right pieces (though I am determined to finish it at some point). I hope this outfit inspired by Captain Phasma was worth the wait! If you're new here and missed the previous Star Wars character inspired outfits you can find them in the links below:

Bazine Netal & Hera Syndulla


What I Wore

Coated T-shirt Dress: H&M
Faux Leather Leggings: Target
Chiffon Shawl: Amazon
Velvet Choker: Amazon
Eternal Stack Ring: Brighton
Sequin Headband: Amazon
A New Day Pumps: Target
Tote: Target (similar)

When my friend Kyle invited my husband and I to the Southern California Garrison Holiday Party I knew I wanted to take this opportunity to put together a fun Star Wars outfit. I chose Captain Phasma because she is one of my favorite Star Wars characters and I think Gwendoline Christie did a fantastic job bringing her to life. Her armor is the most glamorous and she's a heck of a baddie! Phasma's armor and cape both make major statements so I kept that in mind while shopping around for the perfect items. I instantly knew that the coated t-shirt dress from H&M would be perfect because of how incredibly shiny it is. It's very comfortable and lightweight unlike your typical Trooper armor. I think this piece will be great for the holidays or other special events too! To represent Phasma's helmet, I wore a sequin headband that I found from Amazon. My swarovski crystal ring from Brighton and glittery nails added extra shine. You can never have too much shine when you're paying homage to Phasma!

I found it difficult to find a shawl that was black with a red stripe to represent Phasma's cape and those that I did find didn't compliment the extravagant pieces I already had. So I decided on a red velvet choker from Amazon and a stunning chiffon shawl also from Amazon. I love that the shawl is cut shorter in the front so it doesn't take away from silver shine of the t-shirt dress. It's also available in a variety of different colors if you're interested! Who knew that half of the pieces I purchased would be from Amazon? I'm still shocked myself.

Obviously I needed to add quite a bit more height considering the fact that I'm 5'2" and Gwendoline Christie is 6'3" but I didn't want to overdo it. When I re-create these Star Wars character outfits I do my best to use pieces that I would actually wear out. I found some pumps by A New Day, one of my favorite fashion brands, at Target and they are actually quite comfortable! They come in different colors and heights as well. As for the silver/grey tote, I wasn't planning on purchasing a new one but I spotted this beauty on clearance at Target for $10 so that definitely happened. I love it so much and have been using it every day since the party!

Overall, I am very pleased with this Star Wars character inspired outfit and I think I'd have to say it's my favorite one that I've done yet. What do you think of this look? Please leave a comment below and let me know! If there's a character you'd like to see me create an ensemble for, please feel free to make a suggestion!

As always, I will share "Outfit Outtakes" from time to time on my social media pages and exclusive photos on my Patreon page.
