As the space opera series turns 35, we bring you a collection of the finest Star Wars-themed tech

Scalextric Death Star Attack

Forget cars. This Micro Scalextric set features a 1:64 scale X-Wing racing against Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter. The track even glows in the dark for that immersive “we’re in space” vibe. Now this one is definitely a toy, so perhaps we suggest buying it for your own or someone else’s child and then “forgetting” to give it to them.

Hasbro FX Lightsaber

We’ve all dreamed of owning one – and now you can. Sure, this lightsaber won’t cleave a man’s arm off with one stroke (it may give him a small bruise though), but you can display it on your mantlepiece like a trophy. A trophy that says, “I value sci-fi collectibles more than genuine interior decor.”

R2-D2 is back, this time in the guise of Microsoft’s console, complete with special bleeping sounds – while the controller bears a striking resemblance to his gold protocol droid buddy C3PO.

Lego R2-D2

The world’s favourite droid is now available as a 1,200-piece Lego set. Standing over 12 inches high, Artoo features a retractable third leg and opening front with circular saw and computer interface arm inside. Some might call it an overpriced toy, but they deserve to be fed to a Rancor.
