May the 4th be with you

How many times have you heard that saying before? Add one more! For years, my older brother (a 70’s baby of course!) has been recommending this incredible series. In 2015, with the release of the Force Awakens, I couldn’t resist and jumped on the Star Wars wagon. And yes, I began the series the same way movie goers did back in 1977, with Episode IV: A New Hope.

If you’ve walked the halls of any shopping centre, especially around the release of the next Star Wars flick, you’ve seen the franchise everywhere and in everyway! Given Friday marks a special day for Star Wars enthusiasts, I can’t help but chat about some of my favourite finds at Oakridge. I may throw in a recommendation or two for that Star Wars geek in your life (you know who you are!).

Question: Can Star Wars be classy? Answer: Absolutely! Fellas, jazz up any evening attire with these R2D2 Cufflinks from Hudson’s Bay. If you live more on the dark side, might I recommend the Darth Vader Cufflinks instead? A great gift idea for the mature Star Wars fan.

I never recommend leaving the house with socks and sandals! But why would you want to cover these retro Chewy Socks from Stance available at Boys’ Co? These socks come in a variety of prints including Darth Vader, Red Guard, Android and many more. Is it good luck to wear these to the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story? I vote yes!

You are NEVER too old for LEGO Kits! There are dedicated fan clubs that get together to complete some of the most complicated LEGO sets ever. I haven’t attempted the 7500-piece Millennium Falcon just yet but I recommend practicing with the LEGO Death Star Kit available at LEGO Oakridge!

If you’re a fan of collectibles, we adore these Star Wars collectibles from EB Games! Pre-order now for their July release! If you’re like me and want to step up your collectible game, upgrade to this stunning BB-8 Collectible from Swarovski! With 226 sparkling crystal facets and detailed prints, this piece will captivate any Star Wars enthusiast.

Mark your calendars for the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 25, 2018! You’ll find me in the 4th row from the back, in the middle section with a franchise cup and Chewy socks!
