Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the hearts of millions of people worldwide. It all began in 1977, with the release of the original Star Wars movie, which took audiences on an epic space adventure that introduced them to a galaxy far, far away. Since then, the franchise has expanded to include nine movies, multiple TV series, books, comics, video games, and of course, a wide range of collectable toys.

The Star Wars franchise has become one of the most popular and beloved brands in the world, with a dedicated fan base that spans generations. One of the key factors that contribute to the franchise’s success is its ability to create a rich and immersive universe in which fans can get lost within. From iconic characters like Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Darth Vader to fascinating alien races, intricate spaceships, and otherworldly planets, Star Wars offers something for everyone.

Collectable toys have been a significant part of the Star Wars franchise since the beginning. The first line of Star Wars action figures was released in 1978, and since then, there have been countless collectables released for fans to add to their collections. From the original Kenner figures to the modern-day Black Series, Star Wars toys have always been popular with fans of all ages.


At NXT Win Collectables, we are passionate about the entire Star Wars franchise and the collectables that it has inspired. We believe that these toys are more than just playthings; they are artefacts that allow fans to connect with the characters and stories that they love. Each toy tells a story, and each one has a unique history that makes it special to collectors.


The Star Wars franchise has also had a significant impact on popular culture, inspiring countless parodies, references, and tributes in movies, TV shows, and music. Its influence can be seen in everything from the design of the SpaceX Starship to the naming of the first NASA Mars rover, which was called “Perseverance” after a Star Wars quote.

As we look to the future of the Star Wars franchise, there are many exciting developments on the horizon. The Disney+ series The Mandalorian has been a massive success, and several spin-offs, including The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka, with the latter due for release in August 2023 as confirmed at Star Wars Celebration in April 2023. With the next Star Wars movie, Rogue Squadron, set to be released later in 2023, SWC also gave us an insight into what the future of the silver screen holds for the Star Wars brand, including a film set thousands of years before the Star Wars we have all come to love & Adore, detailing the origin of the ‘Jedi’ & a film that is a continuation of the Skywalker Saga. All of which we cannot wait for.


It’s also worth mentioning that 2023 is the 40th anniversary of Episode VI – The Return of the Jedi 1983, previously titled ‘Revenge of the Jedi’. To this day, the exact reason behind George Lucas’s motivation to change the title is contested, but we mainly think that’s due to the fact that the Jedi do not go out for ‘Revenge’ & with that said, a large amount of the promotional material, merchandise & Toys were held back. Until such time that fans & collectors quickly became aware that there was another variant of Episode VI merch that they could get their hands on. Driving the value of some of these items through the roof, and if you are reading this then here’s the scoop.

We have some of that Merch, so I guess you’re going to have to wait and see what we have in the pipeline.


One of the most exciting things about the future of Star Wars is the potential for new collectables. With each new movie or TV series, there are new characters and designs to inspire toys and other merchandise. At NXT Win Collectables, we are always on the lookout for the latest and greatest Star Wars collectables, and we are excited to share them with our fellow fans.

Star Wars is a cultural touchstone that has captured the hearts of people all over the world. Its immersive universe, iconic characters, and thrilling adventures have inspired countless toys and collectables that allow fans to connect with the franchise in a tangible way. As the franchise continues to evolve and grow, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this brand we have all come to love & adore, and what new collectables will be inspired by this timeless saga.

Both of us at NXT Win are so excited to offer our customers Star Wars Prizes that are highly sought after for as little the cost of a coffee (or blue milk) Our Star Wars Competitions will only get bigger and better from here!
