Let’s go to the mall, everybody! Retail staple Forever 21, known for designer knockoffs and sheer WTF, is now carrying this pair of (licensed!) Star Wars tops. The Darth Vader sweater will run you $24.80, while the stormtrooper muscle tee is $13.80. (via)
It seems there’s been quite an outcry for Rogue Squadron items lately… But bear in mind this is only a sketch, so it’s hard to say when, or even if, it ever becomes available.
Santa Maul has returned – briefly – to remind you that the Her Universe Cyber Monday merchandise is now available for purchase, even though none of it features his handsome visage.
Santa Maul has emerged triumphant from the gastronomic bloodbath, and he has spent the night cackling wildly about the encroachment of retail upon the day of platitudes, football, and flightless bird gorging. Not that he has gone out himself, of course: There is much to do at the Darth Pole, and he has been out of commission
writing dirty fanfic taunting Star Wars fandom with poorly-thought out rumors and fancastings.
(Santa Maul can neither confirm nor deny that he or any other member of the Maul family has been approached to direct, write or star in any forthcoming sequels.)
Santa Maul knows there are many deals which you will be wanting to know of, but he must pace himself.
If you have any friends who somehow do not own the Star Wars movies, Amazon has marked the Blu-rays down considerably – perhaps knowing that ‘The Complete Saga’ 6-pack will soon be a lie and/or in hopes that foolish collectors will think they need to purchase extras. In any case, it will now only cost you $69.99, while the individual Original Trilogy and Prequel Trilogy are $29.99 each.
Entertainment Earth is apparently so desperate to to get rid of Luke Skywalker’s dorky yellow jacket that they have marked it down from $274.99 to $75.00. It even comes with a medal to make your lightsider friends feel better about their pathetic life choices.
And of course you already know about Her Universe’s new products for Cyber Monday.
Her Universe has revealed their Cyber Monday exclusives! Above, a set of Darth Vader pajamas featuring artwork from Her Universe favorite Katie Cook. “Everyone knows I love creating designs for Her Universe,” Cook said. “I jumped at the chance to combine two of my favorite things: Star Wars and pajamas.” Tops and bottoms will be sold separately – the tops aren’t on the site yet, but the bottoms go up to 3X.
The Star Wars shirt with Japanese symbols is a new Misses cut that is “is flattering to the female figure” – it’s the same cut as the plus-size Mara shirts from Celebration, and is available in sizes up to 2X. The BSG crew neck sweatshirt might also appeal to those looking for a looser cut – it’s available in sizes up to XL. There are also new Star Trek and two new Doctor Who tees!
Her Universe is producing their first Star Trek jewelery for the holiday – these earrings feature the Vulcan hand sign in the communicator seal. And this year’s holiday pin features Chewbacca and comes in a case signed by Ashley Eckstein. A thousand have been produced and will be going out free with every order while supplies last.
Also free this year? U.S. Ground shipping! All the new Cyber Monday products will go on sale November 26.
With the 501st and Rebel Legion in attendance, Star Wars action figures were named as one of the latest inductees into the National Toy Hall of Fame today.
“Their phenomenal popularity with movie fans revolutionized the toy industry,” the Hall of Fame states. “For more than three decades, kids have used Star Wars action figures—plus accessories, vehicles, and play sets—to tell stories of heroes and villains, of empire and rebellion, and of good triumphing over evil. Adults, too, play when they collect Star Wars action figures.”
Dominos were the other inductees this year; they join past honorees as varied as Barbie, marbles, and the cardboard box.
Jason Geyer is back with more rejected Star Wars concepts – and some that weren’t so rejected! This batch features concepts for Colgate, Curad, Blockbuster and Pepsi
Were yesterday’s eyeglasses a bit rich for your blood? Well, here’s something a bit less pricey: Thinkgeek’s Millennium Falcon bottle opener.
If that doesn’t do it for you, ThinkGeek has a nice chunk of Star Wars stuff on sale right now. It’s never too early to start thinking about holiday shopping… Get there before Santa Maul does!
Star Wars is no stranger to glasses, but usually they’re of the drinking kind. A bit pricier at $500 a pop – but perhaps more practical – is this Star Wars designer eyewear, from Japan’s Aigan, that will be available stateside from Gizmine come the end of the month. Prescription lenses not included, but they do come with matching cases. (via)
