When it comes to Star Wars collectables, the first thing you’d usually think about would be plastic…especially as you glance across your shelves jam-packed with figures, models, and still-intact packaging. But in recent years, collectables from a galaxy far, far away have taken on a distinctly more high-end feel. The Austrian-based company, Swarovski, best known for their crystal jewellery and luxury accessories, have fully embraced The Force with their continuing line of Star Wars collectibles. Desperate fans on the hunt for something a little more classy and long-lasting than a Han Solo Shot First fridge magnet or a Welcome To The Dark Side doormat have been well-served by Swarovski for a few years now.
The company has just released its latest line of Star Wars items, and it is the absolute equal of Swarovski’s past output, which has included crystal figurines of R2-D2, C3-PO, and BB-8, and beautiful crystal reproductions of Darth Vader and Boba Fett’s iconic helmets. Joining these beautiful contemporary artefacts are brand new, finely crafted figurines of the villainous Darth Vader, the legendary Jedi Master, Yoda, and a fearsome (but probably can’t shoot straight) Stormtrooper. These glittering, stunningly engineered figurines are something truly special for the dedicated Star Wars fanatic.
