Star Wars: Jedi Challenges is an AR game that features fun and fast-paced lightsaber battles, strategic combat, and rounds of Holochess.

Nvidia Star Wars Titan XP graphics card







Yep, it’s the most powerful graphics card you could put in a PC. So why not go for the limited edition $1,200 Star Wars Titan XP? There’s the Galactic Empire version, which is all black and red and shiny, and there is the Jedi Order version, which comes in a brilliant white box. The Jedi oirder version evokes a Jedi lightsaber when installed, and comes with a Jedi Order medallion, no less.

Star Wars Makeup from Cargo Cosmetics









Don’t get the wrong idea, but you have to admit, a volumizing First Order mascaras and evening-glam Dark Side shades do merit a mention. They are even selling compact mirrors featuring watercolor portraits of Rey, Gen. Leia, Captain Phasma and BB-8.










This black-plated BB-series astromech droid in the service of the First Order can be controlled with your smart device. Tons of fun, and boast-worthy too. available at Virgin Megastore for AED 629
