Joining the latest parade of Phantom Menace tie-ins is Gogurt, which is packaging their yogurt in glow-in-the-dark lightsaber packaging. Neat, sure. Until you get to the part where they call it a ‘Slurp Saber,’ at which everyone with a remotely dirty mind facepalms their brains out. Way to go, marketing geniuses!
Ready to take your furry fetish to the next level – but not quite ready to rock the full Wookiee suit? Hot Topic is now offering a fuzzy Chewbacca hoodie and Chewbacca fur hat. For those whose obsession may be more dimutive, the Ewok knit hat.
Looking for the perfect wall treatment for your Star Wars room? ThinkGeek is now selling Super7’s Imperial Forces Wallpaper. Hand-screened and flocked, this paper is officially licensed and ready to go. And, best of all – from a distance, who can tell? That’s class.
Curiously geeky? British site Play.com is offering mints in containers shaped like R2-D2, Darth Vader, a stormtrooper and the Death Star. But, let’s face it: The Artoo is best.
Thinkgeek (who else?) is offering adorable super deformed plush toys of the X-Wing, Millennium Falcon, and AT-AT. Do want.
Oh, ThinkGeek. OF COURSE you’re producing a lightsaber candlestick just in time for the holidays. Of course.
We’ve seen and heard about these at before, but now you can finally get your hands on the Han in Carbonite and Artoo ice trays via the always-awesome web store ThinkGeek.
Moleskines, the favorite pocket diary/sketchbook of hipsters and artists everywhere, is releasing limited editions featuring Star Wars covers. They’re up for preorder on Amazon now, in pocket and large sizes. (via)
Select members of Club Jade have long been creating custom Star Wars board games – it’s why we have a Games Night at every JadeCon – but no one has yet approached the game of Operation… But now there’s going to be an official version. Alas, perhaps in deference to the youthful audience, the ‘victims’ are droids. A lost opportunity!
Someday, we hope, some brave Wild Karrde or Star Lady will find it in them to create the game as it should be: With Extra Crispy Anakin Skywalker. Consider the gauntlet dropped.
Laser pointer? Cigarette lighter? No… It’s lip balm. French (Canadian?) lip balm. (NOT A SURPRISE.) Available in Vader, Anakin, or Yoda. (Yoda?)
I am without words, so I’ll just borrow this from our own Knitress: “Now I know why Steve Sansweet can leave LFL; the Star Ladies’ work is done.”
