Everyone always wants to know what to save now that will go up in price. With “Star Wars” collectibles, look for the items that most people wouldn’t save.
(PRWEB) December 18, 2015
Antiques and collectibles experts at Kovels.com are excited about the new movie “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.” Fans love all things “Star Wars” and the movie has generated a universe of new things for collectors beyond the expected action figures, toys, games, guns, lightsabers and trading cards to buy or even get free. Says Terry Kovel, “Everyone always wants to know what to save now that will go up in price. With “Star Wars” collectibles, look for the items that most people wouldn’t save.” Kovels.com suggests five products enthusiasts should look for in stores not far, far away.
1. Coffee-mate Creamer containers styled as Chewbacca, Darth Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2 and Boba Fett;
2. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese boxes containing pasta in “Star Wars” shapes;
3. Cover Girl “Star Wars” makeup – mascara, lipstick and nail polish in colors called Dark Apprentice, Droid and Jedi;
4. Ice Cream by Ample Hills Creamery of Brooklyn in two new flavors with “Star Wars” packaging—the Light Side, marshmallow with crispy clusters, and the Dark Side, dark chocolate with espresso fudge brownie bits; and
5. Darth Vader toaster, molded in black plastic like his head, that toasts the “Star Wars” logo on one side of the bread.
Add to that the usual designer shoes, costumes, bedspreads, jewelry, dolls, cereal boxes, Mr. Potato Heads, cupcake pans, hairbrushes, iPhone cases, phone chargers, shower curtains, cookie jars, watches, lamps, luggage and backpacks, and collectors should be set until the next millennium.
