Curious as to what you’ll find when you step inside Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in Black Spire Outpost?
Then join us as we explore the artifacts, relics, ancient tools, and more that are tucked into each and every corner and crevice of Dok-Ondar’s Den in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!
The Ithorian, with his reputation as the “gatekeeper” of the black market in the Outpost, has packed his den with items of mystery and intrigue.
Is it a jewel you seek? A statue of one of the characters whose stories you’ve heard in the legends of the galaxy?
A lightsaber? One of the rare kyber crystals? Or perhaps an item that once belonged to a Jedi or Sith?
Well, it’s quite possible that you’ll find what you’re searching for somewhere in Dok-Ondar’s collection. (How his collection was amassed? Well, those are tales Dok keeps to himself.)
Of course, you’ll need to set aside some time to explore the location and pick out your galactic goodies first…
The circular, two story setting is revealed after you enter an automatic door and choose whether to go left or right around the wall that first faces you.
The downstairs area provides the shopping space.
While the upstairs is lined with creature taxidermy and other-worldly knick-knacks.
In fact, the Arc of the Covenant is up there, too, I’ve heard tell.
All the while, Dok-Ondar sits in the corner at his desk. And while the bars might indicate that he keeps to himself, that’s not actually the case.
When Dok-Ondar gets upset, you’ll know it, because you’ll hear and see him.
That said, can you interact with him? Not so much. Though Dok-Ondar is known for driving a hard bargain, we didn’t have any success bartering with him. Based on what Disney had originally shared, we thought you could almost converse like a “Turtle Talk with Crush” situation, but it’s not. It’s more like you can chat with the Cast Member stationed near Dok-Ondar.
But overall, the store is still way cool.
And at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, Disney Imagineers shared that no matter which Star Wars era most speaks to you, you’re more than likely to spy an Easter egg or two — or more — in honor of it throughout the shop, so keep your eyes peeled for more than just the shop’s stock for sale!
And now, as for Dok-Ondar’s famed antiquities…
The merchandise sold here is primarily high-end. (Basically, be prepared for some sticker shock from Dok). For just a few examples…
While this shop isn’t an outfitter, per se, you will see items like Jedi robes and even Princess Leia’s white outfit for around $200.00.
These are no mere toys. From wall art to statues of Sith and Jedi, you will likely find a tribute to those you’ve heard about in the legends of the galaxy… from both the Light and the Dark Side.
And there’s more everywhere you turn inside the Den.
The lightsabers here are not customizable, as are the lightsabers you can build at Savi’s Workshop.
However, if you dream of carrying a pair of Ahsoka Tano’s lightsabers or that of another Star Wars character (Kylo Ren, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, Mace Windu, and each of Luke Skywalker’s lightsabers among them), you may find it here among the collection of Legacy Lightsabers!
You can also pick up accessories for your chosen Lightsaber including carrier bags, belt clips, and display cases.
The Den is also where you’ll find the Holocrons perched on the opposite side of the wall which you faced upon entering.
You may choose a Jedi Holocron cube or a Sith Holocron pyramid.
Fun feature: if you choose to put both together, you’ll hear from both sides as they battle, and even hear from Bendu. (“The light and the dark. I’m the one in the middle. The Bendu.“)
From the Holocrons, you’ll hear voices speaking the ancient wisdom and history of the Force, or messages of the power of the Dark Side, accordingly.
And those voices are ones you already know. For instance, I purchased a Jedi Holocron. On its own, it is $50.00 (as are the Sith pyramids) and comes with a USB charging cord.
The blue Holocron as it comes on its own presents the voice of Master Obi-Wan Kenobi — “Trust in the Force” — when you turn the corners of the cube and press on the designated areas.
You’ll hear advice or encouragement such as, “We must persevere and, in time, a new hope will emerge.”
BUT! Perhaps you’d like your Holocron to share messages from other Jedi Masters, like Master Yoda. Well, you can purchase kyber crystals to insert inside the Holocron ($12.99 per kyber crystal).
If you purchase and insert the green kyber crystal, for example…
… you’ll hear messages from Yoda while the Holocron emits a new, green glow.
White, purple, blue, yellow, and red are your other color choices.
Here is my honest impression of my Holocron: it’s cool looking, and the voices and sounds are great.
That said, mine doesn’t offer me an abundance of messages. It’s pretty repetitive. And the item itself doesn’t feel very sturdy — if it’s not handled gently, I have to wonder how long it will last.
So, unless your kid seriously can’t make it without one (and they WILL want one because — let’s face it — they do look cool), I can’t say it’s worth the $50.00 price tag. Still, serious Star Wars collectors are going to have a BLAST.
Galaxy’s Edge Reusable Bags
Remember, no matter what you purchase, you also have the option to buy a reusable bag.
How cool will you feel using THIS as your grocery bag back on earth (it’s exclusive to Galaxy’s Edge!)?
Dok-Ondar himself welcomes you (well, in his own way 😉 ) to explore the treasure troves of his Den of Antiquities! The question is: what are YOU hoping to find inside?
