Best UK Black Friday and Cyber Monday Star Wars deals now feature Sphero toys and droids
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away there was no such thing as Black Friday. I mean, the Rebel Alliance had their hands full trying to overthrow the Galactic Empire and weren’t ideally placed to assess whether saving 30% on toothbrushes was a good deal or if they’d just got deal blindness in a fit of bargain-induced madness. Not even considering that toothbrushes have yet to be introduced into the full Star Wars universe, given only certain aliens seem to have teeth.
Where was I? Oh yeah, Star Wars deals. Black Friday may not exist on Tatooine or Dagobah, but it is here on Earth. Here are the best Star Wars Black Friday bargains:
Remote Control BB-8 (was £49.99, now £27.99)
BB-8 was, undoubtedly, the star of the Disney Star Wars reboot, and what family wouldn’t want a spherical droid of their own for their homes? This remote control BB-8 typically retails for £49.99, but you can get it for £27.99 at Argos. It’s listed as £34.99, but add the code FLASH20 checkout, and it’ll magically drop in price.
Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Interactive Force Band (50% – now £35)
This band lets you control your BB-8 with just a wave of your hand. You can make it look like you’re using the force to push or pull the droid or you can use the band by itself to complete Combat Training for Blasters and Lightsabers. Get 50% off at I Want One Of Those (IWOOT).
The Force Band is compatible with Sphero’s original BB-8 and other Sphero robots powered by Bluetooth SMART.
Sphero Star Wars R2-D2 (now just £120)
You can get 33% of the Sphero Star Wars R2-D2 Droid, also from IWOOT, for £119 (a saving of £60). It can be controlled with the Sphero app, and you can make Artoo waddle and travel from a bipod to tripod stance while making beeps and boops from the integrated speaker. It is also compatible with other Sphero droids.
Sphero Star Wars BB-9E (£155.99 – save £34)
This successor to the BB-8 is seen as the original droids evil twin, released ahead of this winter’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It’s got a small reduction on IWOOT, down from £149.99 and is compatible with the Sphero app as well other Sphero droids. Join the dark side!
Assorted Propel Battle Drones (was £199.99, now £119.99)
Jon loved Propel’s Star Wars drones when he reviewed them back in September, but there was one little problem. Yes, they’re great fun to fly and they have lasers so you can take part in aerial laser tag – but at £199.99 each, you’d have a hard time justifying the expense. Well, at £119.99 at Amazon and Tesco, they’re now that bit more affordable.
Star Wars Mega Figurine Set (was £49.99, now £30.00)
These detailed figurines normally retail for £50, but at the Disney Store, a saving of 39% sees this set of 20 dropping to just £30.
LEGO Ultimate Collector Series Imperial TIE Fighter (was £179.99, now £152.99)
This 1,685 piece set retails for £179.99 but can be had for just £152.99 at John Lewis. Not only is it immensely detailed, but it also includes a display stand and fact plaque, so there’s room for it on display when you’re done.
Xbox One S with Minecraft, Minecraft: Story Mode, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and an extra controller (£224.98)
Microsoft has some excellent Xbox One S bundles doing the rounds at the moment, but for my money, this is one of the best thanks to the extra controller thrown into the mix. Plus, Star Wars Battlefront 2, of course, which means it qualifies here. If you don’t want the extra controller, you can get this for under £200 by removing it, but given Minecraft excels in split-screen mode, you’d be making a mistake in cutting it.
LEGO First Order Heavy Assault Walker (was £129.99, now £103.99)
A £26 saving is coming for this 1,376 piece LEGO model. Just perfect for crushing troublesome rebels, pirates, superheroes, or whatever other minifigures you have lying around. Buy it now from Lego’s own store.
