Today is May 4th. This signals the official Star Wars Day around the world where everybody comes together to celebrate the beloved franchise.
Why the fourth of May? “The date was chosen for the easy pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you“— “May the Fourth be with you”.
We’ve thrown together a small list of awesome Star Wars toys to consider:

Imperial “TIE Pilot” Leather Jacket – Limited Edition
If you’re a Star Wars fan and you’ve been looking for a supple leather jacket to add to your wardrobe, we’ve found it. Honestly, we wish we had a special plugin on the site so you could feel this jacket. It’s made from the softest bantha hideleather. You’ll have to believe us until you order it yourself.
The leather outer has angles and suede inserts, reminiscent of the lines of a TIE Fighter. It also has an interchangeable badge system and comes with 2 rubber badges to start you off: a TIE Fighter with a red viewport shaped like the symbol for the Galactic Empire and a large Galactic Empire symbol. The inside lining features a painting of a dogfight, a print of a TIE Fighter schematic, and a unique serialized number on a little metal tag near the interior pocket. Which zips shut. And will probably hold your phone (it’s 6″ square).
Did you pick up on that “unique serialized number” bit? This jacket isn’t just a jacket; it’s also a limited-edition collectible.
