Fans of Star Wars: The Force Awakens have long been crying foul over the lack of Rey merchandise, and things seem to be getting worse before they get better. While there are still mountains to climb, fans have taken matters into their own hands and created some spectacularly fun items for all Star Wars fans to enjoy. From homemade crafts to beautiful artwork, the spirit of Rey is alive and well and the tributes are stunning.
