Pop Culture Weekly with Kyle McMahon's Holiday Gift Guide for the Star Wars Fan!
There are very few things that have been as big and long lasting in pop culture as Star Wars. Due to that popularity, an entire multi billion dollar industry has popped up ranging from children's toys to pet products to very expensive collectors pieces. As a Star Wars fan myself, I've put together this list of some cool items you can give to the Star Wars fan in your life - or gift it to yourself.

Very few Star Wars fans would not turn down their very own Baby Yoda. So this The Mandalorian: The Child Animatronic Figure from Hasbro is perfect for them!

Abrams Books is another publisher I can't recommend highly enough. Their book Star Wars: The Art of The Mandalorian (Season One) looks to be another knock out of the park. At 256 pages, the book goes behind the scenes of the Disney+ hit with interviews, photos, sketches and concept art from the key players who created the series. Get Star Wars: The Art of The Mandalorian (Season One) on Amazon here!
Speaking of concept art, the Funko Star Wars Concept Series Funko POPs are an excellent gift for the Star Wars fan. This Funko POP series recreates some of the original concept art for the Star Wars films. The first wave in the series was a convention exclusive with the POPs now going for hundreds of dollars.
