    Jay Franco & Sons recently put out a Star Wars Vehicles bedset, available at Target. This is an upscale set, geared more towards adults. It features multiple layers of fabric with machine embroidered borders and quilted edges. It incorporates both classic and prequel vehicles into it's pattern, successfully merging the saga. It comes in Twin and Full sizes, and consists of:

    Toss pillows (2 different) $19.99 each

    Twin sheet set (with 2 pillowcases) $29.99
    Full sheet set (with 2 pillowcases) $39.99

    Twin Quilt set (with 2 shams) $69.99
    Full Quilt set (with 2 shams) $89.99

    Prices may vary between store and online shopping.

    While definitely pricey, this new set is one of the best Star Wars bedding sets I've seen to date. We picked up a complete Full size ensemble recently, and put it on the bed in the Star Wars room.

    The toss pillows are nice, and would fit in on a couch or a bed. The Star Wars logo pillow has a striped pattern on the back and the silhouette of an ARC-170 Starfighter.

    The Rebel Alliance pillow has the silhouette of an X-Wing Fighter on the front, and a plain black back.

    The sheets are of a higher thread count than we are used to on kids sheets, but are by no means of a high percale. What's neat about this set is the bottom sheets are completely different than the top.
    The bottom set features primarily prequel vehicles, including Jedi Delta-7A starfighters, ARC-170s, and Zam Wessel's Koro-2 Exodrive airspeeder, in addition to Rebel logos and X-Wing silhouettes.

    The top sheet is more classic, featuring full color X-Wings and the Millennium Falcon, as well as X-Wing and ARC-170 silhouettes.

    The sheet set comes with two identical pillowcases. One side has an X-Wing Fighter, while the other has the Star Wars logo.

    Moving on to the quilt...this is a very heavy quilt and should actually provide some warmth if required. It features colorful Millennium Falcon and X-Wing art with embroidered borders, on a patchwork arrangement of color blocks.

    It comes with two pillow shams. The front features a patchwork design with the Star Wars logo. The back is all black, but has a red ARC-170
    silhouette.

    I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but one my shams had and embroidered border around the Star Wars logo. The other did not (see photo below). Otherwise, the two shams were identical. Perhaps if someone else picks this up they can enlighten us as to whether this is standard, or if I have a production error. :)

    Overall, this is a mass produced bedding set, like everything made these days. However, I do highly recommend this bedding set. It's attractive, fairly sturdy, and it will be a nice addition to any collection or Star Wars room. Be prepared to shell out for it though, as it is not cheap.
