Companies like Lego and Hasbro are showing off a first look at their new toys and collectibles ahead of the latest installment of the film series, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", which premieres December 15.
Sales of "Star Wars" toys in the U.S. totaled $618 million from August 2016 to July 2017, according to market research firm NPD Group.
These droids can be controlled with a smart device and use augmented reality to show holographic simulations from the Star Wars galaxy.
Propel's new miniature quadcopters are designed to look like X-Wing and TIE Fighters, as well as the Speederbikes made famous in Return of the Jedi.
When paired with a smartphone, players can meld the physical and virtual worlds, flying through the air while also hearing sound effects and dialogue from the movie.
