Give the gift of blaster to your favorite scoundrel

han-rotj-blaster

For those who are looking to make a lasting impression this holiday season, Santa Maul notes that the blaster of one “Han Solo” will be auctioned off in the coming weeks. With a minimum bid of $200,000 this is not an option for those who suffer from the lack of dollars. But Santa Maul is certain that any scoundrel or scoundrel-lover will appreciate the effort.

Santa Maul's Holiday Gift GuideIf you wish to be more frugal (or perhaps, less willing to incite violence) in your wooing, the bidding on Professor Jones’ glasses starts at $7,000.

Other items of note in said auction include the hand of a weakling Jedi Master, the sword Excalibur, a golden ticket, a Dalek and several fetching tuxedos.

Santa Maul has awoken to advise you on bloodshed, gift-buying and other forms of holiday violence

Santa Maul hopes your enemies were sluggish and your feasting was plentiful this Thanksgiving. Santa Maul himself is, of course, gearing up for his (contractually-obligated) favorite day of the year, Black Friday.

Santa Maul's Holiday Gift Guide“But Santa Maul,” you say. “The shopping has started earlier this year, on Thanksgiving itself!” To that, Santa Maul says poppycock. Thanksgiving is a day for feasting and destroying your enemies: Shopping is for every day after that, until the final facedowns of the season and the blood offerings at Sithmas itself. On this, Santa Maul remains firm.

That said, if you wish to begin your shopping now, well, upon your own neck be it. Consumerism waits for no Sith.

Star Wars is, as always, at the forefront of the trend, with StarWars.com posting their own roundup of deals yesterday. Dunc already revealed the new offerings from Her Universe. And if you are not quite sure what your ‘fangirl’ should want, they now offer gift cards.

ThinkGeek is as ever a staple for geek-themed gifts. This year, Santa Maul is much taken with the Star Wars tie clips, cuff links money clips, lightsaber earrings and business card holder, though of course he can not help but be a little tickled by the R2-D2 car charger and Darth Vader stress toy.

Santa Maul would not be so neglectful as to forget the year’s books. Though you may have procured it for yourself, do not forget The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Star Wars Art: Concept and the many other oversized offerings that magically appear during the fall.

For one wishing for to bring a custom level to their lair, Santa Maul is much taken with these Death Star-inspired wall tiles from Tom Spina Design.

Santa Maul suggests pretty, shiny things to lure unsuspecting victims

Santa Maul's Holiday Gift GuideIt is with a distinct lack of regret that Santa Maul admits he is suffering from ennui this holiday season. After all, what could be more festive than utter boredom? Santa Maul has seen it all.

So naturally, he turns to flowers. Santa Maul’s friend Bright Copper Penny is creating Star Wars themed ‘Penny Blossoms’ for these who desire to feel pretty or witty or whatever.

For those with crasser tastes geared towards base metals, there is always the assorted Lord of the Rings paraphernalia, such as earrings or the actual One Ring. (Sold out, of course.)

Less apt to get one hunted down by particularly dim Ringwraiths is the ‘European-style charm bracelet,’ which is slightly less tacky and significantly more geeky than the versions Santa Maul has seen plastered on billboards in his travels.

For those who do not fall for the allure of shiny things, Santa Maul recommends the Han Solo in Carbonite business card case and Death Star ice mold. Santa Maul freezes his with ball bearings before putting it in the Maul family holiday punch bowl – it’s always fun to see which of his dim-witted bisected cousins ends up swallowing the most.
