Star Wars' 40th Anniversary is imminent, and though the big milestone is just days away fans be able to commemorate forever with some new commemorative collectibles.
It's hard to separate "Star Wars fans" from "collectors," as there is a huge overlap. A part of the reason the franchise is so big is because of the huge contributions to fandom made by the people who scrape up every piece of merchandise they can find.
