It’s almost time once again for the Toy of the Year Awards — an annual event that recognizes the best toys across different brands, ranging from collectibles to action figures to board games and more. Several Star Wars toys made the nominations list this year, and you can vote for your favorites right now!
StarWars.com announced the nominations earlier this week, so here’s a quick rundown of which categories you should pay special attention to when casting your votes.
First, Hasbro’s Star Wars L0-LA59 (Lola) Animatronic Edition was nominated for Action Figure of the Year. The toy, inspired by the droid L0-LA (pronounced like “Lola”) from the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series that aired earlier this year. The toy displays various combinations of lights, sounds, and movements to entertain fans of all ages — including “On the Go” mode, where you can detach the droid from both her legs and stand and “zoom” her around the galaxy.
Disney Consumer Products was nominated in the Grown Up Toy of the Year category for its Cal Kestis Legacy Lightsaber Hilt. The hilt, released earlier this year, was inspired by the main character of Jed: Fallen Order and the lightsaber he used throughout the game.
And finally, Ravensburger’s Star Wars Villainous board game was nominated in the Game of the Year category. Villanous allows players to choose between a set of Star Wars villains, each of which move through the game with special abilities and objectives. Players can choose from characters such as Darth Vader, General Grievous, Kylo Ren, and more.
