You be the judge. I'm not sure you need to go HAM buying all of them, but, if you have a particular favorite movie (or movies) from the Star Wars series, they're totally worth flopping out a buck for.

But it would take another 32 years for Star Wars Day to become a celebration. The good news is, what has become "Star Wars Day" is typically crammed with all sorts of different promotions surrounding the Star Wars universe. What some may not know about is the celebrations that take place the day after on May 5th.

The party started early when Warwick Davis, 47, one of the stars of Return of the Jedi shared an epic #ThrowBackThursday shot of him as a child with his old Star Wars toys.

Today, and only today, really, you can get away with saying "May the 4th be with you".
