Everything You Need to Know: Toydarian Toymaker
When traveling through the Black Spire Outpost, you’re sure to want something to take back with you on your long flight back to your own galaxy. This jumbled shop will house a variety of souvenirs for you so you don’t leave empty handed. Hand crafted toys and collectibles will be available for purchase made by Zabaka the Toydarian.
Zabaka is a Toydarian who’s set up shop here in the Black Spire Outpost to craft only the finest of toys and gifts for all travelers. You might recognize the Toydarian species from Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, where we first met Watto. If you remember well, Toydarians are immune to Jedi mind tricks, as we learned from Watto’s encounter with Qui-Gon Jinn. “Only money. No money, no parts, no deal!”
We’re sure that you won’t have to haggle with Zabaka, or that all Toydarians are the same, but it might be best to leave the Jedi mind tricks outside of the stall for the time being.
WHERE: Toydarian Toymaker
The Toydarian Toymaker shop will be a part of the Merchant Row district, where you’re sure to find other items to bring home after your travels to the Galaxy’s Edge. This toy shop will be tucked between the Black Spire Outfitters and the Creature Stall. You’ll be sure to spot her shop from her cluttered storefront, featuring crates of supplies for her toys and latest projects, such as a tauntaun rocking horse.
Zabaka will often be busy working on the latest toys and won’t have time to interact with all her travelers that pass by. Her silhouette can often be seen through the back windows of her workshop though, perhaps working on the latest doll or crafting classics like sabacc as she flits around.
WHAT: Dolls, Creatures, Ships, Games and More!
Featured below are some of the wooden dolls that Zabaka has crafted. From Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Stormtroopers and Admiral Ackbar and our favorite droid duo, C-3PO and R2-D2 (featured in the second picture) look great as these wooden dolls.
Also spotted here is a wooden Sandcrawler and a wooden spin toy, featuring a Rebel pilot and Chewbacca from what’s visible from this shot.
For wooden creatures, there is a carved Frog-Dog and a Convor.
There’s also this really nice wooden carved box, featuring Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, some TIE-Fighters, Darth Vader’s TIE-Fighter, and the Galactic Empire symbol in the middle.
If wood isn’t your thing, there’s also some tin toys of our favorite modes of transportation, like the Landspeeder, Millennium Falcon and TIE-Fighter.
If toys aren’t your thing and you’re more of a “push your luck” sort of person, you may be interested in purchasing. Perhaps you’re like our favorite scruffy looking, nerf-herder and are interested in Dejarik or Sabacc?
There’s a wooden version of Dejarik Board Game, mimicking the hologram version that’s often played on board the Millennium Falcon. It also comes with a checker board on the flip side if you need to calm your temper after losing like a Wookiee.
If you’re interesting in perfecting your skills so you don’t have to cheat to gain a Millennium Falcon, make sure to pick up a copy of Sabacc.
If you’re not looking for something so high-stakes and possibly a bit more accessible to the whole family, check out this matching game. This features characters throughout the galaxy, as well as some of the characters you’ll meet in the Outpost, like Hondo Oknaka, Dok Ondar, and DJ R3X.
If you’re up for a challenge, this wooden Jedi Holocron puzzle cube might be perfect for you too. Some Force may be needed to help you solve it, though.
A portable misting fan that looks an awful lot like the moisture vaporators used on Tatooine by moisture farmers in the original 1977 “Star Wars” movie. That little wooden Stormtrooper on the right is the same one a young Jyn Erso had in Rogue One.
First up, we have Rey and Finn, accompanied by a small Porg plush.
If you’re looking for the original leaders of the Rebels and not the Resistance, you’ll find Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian (and his cape), and Chewbacca.
Maybe you’re more of a fan of the First Order and would rather pick up Kylo Ren and a Stormtrooper, as shown here.
You can also find Darth Vader, Jedi Master Yoda, and the cutest creatures from the forest moon of Endor, Ewoks!
You might also spot the Toydarian Watto and Padawan Ahsoka Tano while looking through the Creature Stall. That quirky little creature in the middle is a toy version of a Loth-Cat.
And of course, the galaxy’s most influential gangster, Jabba the Hutt, also received the plush treatment. At least he’s not as slimy in plush form.
What do you think of all these toys and plush? Toydarian Toymaker will also sell a variety of musical instruments that look just like the ones used by the infamous cantina band, Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes. Those looking for percussion will find Ewok drums for sale. Will any of these toys or games be making their way back across the galaxy to your home?
