Here we have our first weird merchandise sighting of the new year. I’m not sure if I should be more shocked that handheld Star Wars character fan misters exist, or that they’re actually sold out.
I’m still waiting on that Mustafar immersion fryer, guys. Make it so.

Leaving no niche unmarketed, it’s the R2-D2 aquarium.
R2D2 Aquarium is, in case you’re wondering, far from a tacky affair – though, we’ll admit, it may well sit comfortably on the fence between the especially incredulous and the vaguely surreal – as what’s on offer is a 1¾ gallon tank, an animated dome which will respond to vocal commands (with beeps) and a radar eye that doubles up as a periscope allowing you to spy on your fish as they feed and go about their re-enactments of famous Star Wars scenes before a suitably illustrated cardboard backdrop.
No, I think tacky is the word you’re looking for here. Or maybe “ridiculous” and “unwieldy” – matters of taste aside, I would not want to be the one responsible for cleaning that thing. (via)

I’m with Gizmodo: This Vader TV set is more than a little ridiculous, lightsaber remote or no lightsaber remote. (They used to sell a much more accurate, if not particularly functional-looking universal remote on its own. You can still find them on eBay.)
