In honor of “Star Wars Day” on May 4th, NFT startup Cryptoys launched a digital collectible toy collection based on the popular sci-fi franchise. The Star Wars x Cryptoys collection features 15 limited edition “digital toys” of beloved Star Wars characters, including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader. These NFTs are minted on the Flow blockchain, which is also home to top collectibles platforms such as NBA Top Shot and NFL All Day.
The NFTs are the latest in Cryptoys’ pop culture “digital toy” collections, following their previous Masters of the Universe collaboration with Mattel. The NFTs are set to drop on May 24th and will sell for $39.99.Designed in five cartoonish, stylized skin designs, the NFTs will be available in “Common,” “Rare,” “Legendary,” “Grail,” and “Ultra Grail” rarity levels in Star Wars-inspired digital “holocrons” — or data storage devices from the popular sci-fi film franchise. Each pack is a “blind box,” which means buyers won’t know which character they’ll receive until they open it. “We’ve all been Star Wars fans since we were kids, which is why it’s an absolute dream come true to bring Star Wars collectible digital toys to the Cryptoys platform,” said Will Weinraub, CEO and co-founder of Cryptoys’ parent company OnChain Studios, in a statement.
Cryptoys’ Star Wars NFTs are not the first of their kind. The franchise earlier released various sets of Star Wars digital collectibles on VeVe. This includes 3D digital models, digital posters, and comic book covers. The new collection is sure to be a hit among Star Wars fans and NFT collectors alike. The NFT market has exploded in recent years, with NFT sales totaling over $10 billion in the first quarter of 2022 alone. As the popularity of NFTs continues to grow, companies like Cryptoys are capitalizing on the trend by offering unique and highly collectible digital assets. NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are unique digital assets that are stored on a blockchain. Unlike cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, which are fungible and can be exchanged for other units of the same currency, NFTs are unique and cannot be exchanged for other units of the same asset. This uniqueness is what makes NFTs so valuable to collectors and investors.
