Well, it’s our last #mandomonday, and the final Hasbro X Mando Monday reveals for 2020 ending the year on a high with The Mandalorian Darksaber Force FX Elite Lightsaber and Boba Fett (re-armored) Premium Electronic Helmet.
If you’re looking for the hottest blade in the galaxy, then it’s got to be the Darksaber. FX Elite blades are renowned for the sheet beauty of the thing – to be fair, at £250 you’d hope so – but these are supreme collector pieces. On the other hand, if like me you’re a little clumsy – or just plain want to play with your grown-up toys – then the re-armoured Boba Fett helmet (a rather comfortable £120) might be more up your alley. With flipdown range finder and HUD, this looks to be a glorious piece of kit. Both are up for pre-order right now on Amazon, and let’s hope that tides you over till this time next year!
Here’s the official take:
