Action Figures, the best Christmas themed gifts

Hasbro (Holiday Edition) Funko Pop Various Action Figures

Hasbro (Holiday Edition)

From the Star War s line The Black Series, or the figures for collectors of the American brand, there are some versions called Holiday Edition. These particular but very nice articulated figures are reprints that adopt new colors and accessories with a Christmas theme. For example, you can buy one of the Sith Troopers with the totally green armor livery with red and white striped socks that carries a rifle much more similar to a Nerf (the ones that shoot foam rubber darts) rather than a common blaster used in the series. Another example (which fits perfectly) is the Range Trooper that appeared in Solo: A Star Wars Story, which in this case looks like an armored Santa Claus, absolutely cool.

R2-D2 with reindeer antlers? Thanos with the Christmas sweater, one of the deliberately ugly ones that are so fashionable now? Or maybe you prefer a beautiful Wonder Woman with a string of lights instead of the Lasso of Truth?

Best Star Wars action figures

Which Star Wars action figure is best?

Star Wars single-handedly kick-started the movie merchandise craze with the toys that followed the 1977 movie. Sir Alec Guinness, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi, famously signed a deal to receive a percentage of merchandise rights instead of a flat fee. This earned him more money than his previous 40 movies combined! All sorts of merchandise have arrived since then, with action figures leading the way in popularity. 

One of the best figures currently available is the Star Wars: The Black Series: Darth Vader, a great figure that will appeal to all fans.

What to know before you buy a Star Wars action figure

Star Wars toys have become much-loved possessions among children and fans everywhere. Some of the original action figures have become collector items. A rare 1979 Boba Fett action figure sold for almost $200,000 in 2019. What do you need to consider when buying a Star Wars action figure?


There are action figures from different toy series. One problem with compatibility could be their size. A 6 inch Luke Skywalker may not look too great fighting a 12 inch Darth Vader, so be sure to check out the measurements before purchasing. Differently-branded figures may also be incompatible with other accessories and spaceships.


If you want your action figure to earn you money, removing it from its packaging is not advisable. Over time, Star Wars action figures can increase in value if proper care is taken. Attention should be paid to storage conditions and damage to the packaging. Any collector that receives a Star Wars action figure in damaged packaging should request a new one.


The Star Wars franchise has grown over the decades with many blockbuster movies. New characters have been introduced and old ones have been resurrected. Knowing which characters to purchase for a young fan may be confusing. They may relate more to modern movies and TV shows, such as “The Mandalorian” or “The Rise of Skywalker.” At the same time, older fans and collectors will more likely be more interested in the original trilogy.

What to look for in a quality Star Wars action figureAccuracy

The detail on an action figure is important. Most action figures produced these days have a very high level of detail. Any should have great features that actually resemble the actors that played them and display realistic attire and accessories.

Added Features

The characters should feature add-ons such as the weapons they use on screen. Luke Skywalker should have a lightsaber included, and Han Solo should have a blaster. Keep in mind that small parts, such as weapon accessories, are choking hazards. The manufacturer’s age-range recommendation should be followed. 

Points of articulation

All action figures should have points of articulation, whether you want them for play or display purposes. More miniature action figures should have at least five in the legs, arms and head. More prominent figures meant for display purposes should have more points to form realistic action poses.

How much you can expect to spend on a Star Wars action figure

Beautifully-detailed action figures with accurate likenesses of the characters aimed at the collector can cost several hundred dollars. Figures for playing with can be found at less than $10, with higher quality figures generally costing between $15-$30.

Star Wars action figure FAQHow can I make an action figure an investment?

A. Any action figure should not be removed from the packaging to maximize valuation. Store your packaged action figures at room temperature and avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Figures removed from the packaging can still be of value as long as they are well cared for. They should be gently cleaned regularly with a cloth and, if necessary, warm water.

What are the most popular Star Wars characters?

A. The older characters are timeless. Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, C3-PO and R2-D2 are the most popular from that era. Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Master Yoda were popularized in the prequel movies. The modern trilogy featured Kylo Renn, Poe Dameron, Rey and Finn. And, the recent Disney+ series “The Mandalorian” gave us the wonderful little character called Grogu, also known as The Child or Baby Yoda, as well as resurrecting Boba Fett from the original trilogy.
