May the Fourth be with you: Star Wars sales and deals have dropped out of hyperspace – CNET

I can remember when Star Wars Day was just the day we’d wish one another a pun-tastic “May the Fourth be with you.” These days, it has evolved into a sort of Black Friday for sci-fi fans, with a mountain of deals on Star Wars stuff — everything from games to Blu-rays to collectibles and apparel.

Best Buy

Granted, it’s not much of a discount, but the Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a comprehensive Blu-ray collection for the die-hard fan. It includes 27 discs spanning all nine films in the trilogy of trilogies. 


I saved this for last because, well, it’s not on sale, and $100 is a lot to ask. But this finished-in-red Stormtrooper helmet belonged to Captain Cardinal, Armitage Hux’s personal guard in the Star Wars novel Phasma. Not only is the helmet visually stunning, but it can electronically distort your voice into a Stormtrooper’s at the press of a button. File this one under “Splurge for May the Fourth.”
