The Empire’s Best Product Is This Star Wars TIE Fighter Gas Grill

Much as we try to avoid it, we just can’t get enough Star Wars merchandise. It’s hard not to, when you see products like this TIE Fighter Gas Grill from StarFire Direct. Featuring a very decent 220 sq.in. of cooking space, this grill accepts standard 1lb. bottles of propane. The wings are actually functional, folding out to give you food prep space. Featuring an awesome custom TIE Fighter analog thermometer, this cast-aluminum creation will output up to 10,000 BTUs, happily searing the Star Wars logos onto your steaks. It’s all of $400.

Wearable Sleeping Bags Come In Star Wars Fashions

star-wars-wearable-sleeping-bags

Selk’Bags, the sleeping bags that you wear like a bodysuit, have been around for a long time. We wrote about them in 2006 and even reviewed one in 2011. Fast forward to today, and we find the company trying to expand its appeal by releasing some Star Wars themed suits, and we’re loving it. You can now get a Selk’bag in Chewbacca, Buzz Lightyear, Radiation Suit and Darth Vader flavours. Notice the two non-Star Wars items there? Neither did we, because who the heck cares, amirite?

Everything else is the same as a regular Selk’bag and has the following features:

– Removable booties allow you to wear your own shoes, or keep them on for warm sleeping; booties are reinforced with durable nylon
– Elastic no-hassle hand openings allow you to bring your hands in and out of the bag quickly and effortlessly
– Single Ezip for a quick entry and dual zipper pulls for easy pocket access
– A soft polyester shell with DWR (durable water resistant) finish is both comfortable and water-resistant
– An insulated hood for added warmth
– Draft tubes prevent heat loss around the zippers
– Wide zipper tape prevents snags when opening or closing
– A convenient carry sack for compact portability

They’ll set you back $109 and also come in children’s sizes for $89.

Star Trek Beer Koozies

star_trek_beer_coolers_1

Everything and anything can become branded merchandise. Are we going to write about it all? If it’s a slow Friday, probably. Although to be honest, we kind of genuinely like these headless Kirk and Spock beer koozies from the official online Star Trek store. They’re can coolers, so what’s there to really say about them? They cost $9 and are sort of awesome. The end.

R2-D2 French Press Is The Only Press You Want

itns_r2-d2_coffee_press_pour

We could make all kinds of Star Wars puns while introducing this product. But it’s too early in the morning, and we haven’t had enough coffee, let alone any coffee poured from the insides of something as awesome as this R2-D2 Coffee Press. So you’ll have to get by with our banal description and excerpted text:

Let R2 help you navigate your mornings more successfully with this Star Wars R2-D2 Coffee Press. He’s happy to help a human in need. Put your grounds and boiling water in his glass body, brew for a few minutes, plunge, and he’ll serve up 32 oz. of piping hot coffee. For folks playing along at home, that’s 4 cups, so even if your motivator is so bad that the Jawas put you back on the scrap heap, he can still get you going.

Not that there’d be much else to talk about, really. It’s a press, and it looks like R2-D2, and it’s totally awesome. It’s also priced just right at $40.

Star Trek Planetary Glassware

istg_st_planetary_glassware_set_grid

There seems to be quite a bit of interest over planetary-themed items, as can be evidenced right here. However, most of the time the planets in question are the ones in our very own solar system. That’s all fine, but what about the planets in other, completely fictional universes? The Star Trek Planetary Glassware celebrates some of the planets encountered in Gene Roddenberry’s tales.

We’ve chosen to highlight several M-class planets: Earth, the capital planet of the United Federation of Planets, home of Starfleet Headquarters, and the location of the main branch of Starfleet Academy; Vulcan, the Vulcan homeworld and a founding member of the United Federation of Planets; Romulus, the homeworld of the Romulans and the capital world of the Romulan Star Empire; and Qo’noS, homeworld of the Klingons and the capital of the Klingon Empire. We also threw in a shot glass for good measure which resembles a Borg Cube, the primary vessel of the Borg Collective

The glasses are sadly not microwave or dishwasher safe, but with a little TLC this set will keep your nerdy self entertained for years to come. It’s $40.
