With a new Star Wars movie set to premiere in just a few months, you can count on a bunch of awesome new merch for kids and kids at heart to release in stores.
Though many Star Wars fans prefer to collect and preserve their items in the box, these new items from Hasbro, Playskool, and Nerf are meant to be played with. ComicBook.com has an exclusive look at some brand new items that can be found in stores this spring.
As Lucasfilm gears up for the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, fans will be able to get their hands on a brand new Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon playset from Playskool. It is very much in the original trilogy design of the famous ship and includes figures of R2-D2 and Chewbacca. Open up the Falcon to reveal a Rebel command center and get ready to take on the empire.

Then there are the weapons, the glorious weapons!
First up is the Nerf Glowstrike version of Han Solo's Blaster, a replica of the smuggler's trusty weapon. As featured in practically every Star Wars movie in which Han Solo makes an appearance, Solo's blaster is instantly recognizable, and now fans can have their own version to play with.
There's also the new Bladebuilders lightsaber that comes with the styles of different Force Masters, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Mace Windu, and Yoda. Fans can alter their lightsaber to match their favorite character. Not only does it make classic combat noises, but it also plays iconic phrases from the corresponding characters.
