Star Wars Still Rules Pop Culture Collectibles
Entertainment Earth Sales Statistics Suggest Stranger Things, Guardians of the Galaxy Merchandise May Make Inroads in 2017
SIMI VALLEY, CA: February 23, 2017

Make room on your shelves! You’re going to be adding new Star Wars items to your collection in the coming months. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, and Hasbro unveiled at New York Toy Fair special additions to their Black Series line to mark the occasion.
There are a few exclusives included in this reveal — Star Wars Celebration’s X-wing Pilot Luke Skywalker, GameStop’s R5-D4, Walmart’s 3 3/4 inch 4-pack, and Target’s AT-ACT Driver.
