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.

Death Star Christmas Tree Topper

jgsv_star_wars_death_star_tree_topper

As far as we’re concerned, on the very first day after Halloween, the Christmas period starts. Or the Holiday Season, if you’re politically sensitive. And some of us are going to erect a Christmas tree. It would be cool if you put something awesome on top, instead of that old fashioned star. How about a Death Star? What could be more poetic? Yes, that’s right, you’re looking at a Death Star tree topper. It lights up red or blue (and green), and plays two iconic Star Wars compositions: the Star Wars theme and the Imperial March. It even comes with a remote control. And, sadly, it’s going to set you back a hefty $99. That’s if you can even manage to get your hands on one, since it’s out of stock indefinitely.

Stormtrooper Decanter Bottle and Shot Glass

stormtrooper-bottles-1

Look, there’s not much to say about this product, aside from pointing out the obvious: it’s freaking awesome. It’s a decanter bottle and shot glass set from The Fowndry; the bottle costs £22 (~$27) and the shot glass £12 (~$15, or two for £22, ~$27). They’re based on the design from industrial designer Andrew Ainsworth in 1976, for the original Star Wars film. They’ll make an amazing conversation piece no matter what liquid you pour into them, especially milk (see pic below). You should know the shot glass isn’t really a shot glass, more like a glass, period. That’s because it can hold 5 oz, which is only a shot if you’re a genuinely enthusiastic drinker.

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.

This AT-AT Desk Organizer is the Best Organizer There Is

Hot on the heels of our Star Wars Suits coverage, we want to direct your attention to this most awesome AT-AT Desk Organizer. It measures 10.6″ tall and is a 1/72 scale replica of the “real thing”. It’s full of compartments to store your various items, and even comes with its own companion Snow Speeder with a tow hook, letting you wrap your charging cable around its feet with ease. Its various joins are flexible, so you can pose him how you want. It doesn’t get much better than this, and at 9,720 yen (~$95 USD) available in December, we expect it to be a popular Christmas present.

Opposuits Releases Star Wars Suits

screen-shot-2016-09-26-at-7-22-58-am

A little over a year ago we wrote about Opposuits’ PacMac Suits. We thought back then that these were the bee’s knees, but now that we’ve seen the company’s Star Wars suits, we have to reconsider. They come in two flavours called “Strong Force” and “Stormtrooper” and will definitely make… some kind of statement wherever you wear them. What’s even better is you’ll be able to own either one without breaking the bank, since they asking price is $110, with up to a 10% discount if you buy 10 of them at once.

Battling Star Wars Drones Are A Thing That You Can Buy

Propel-RC-Star-Wars-Battling-Quad-Drones

When we write about Star Wars merchandise, it’s usually just some stuff that looks like something in the movies, and doesn’t do much, like a lamp or a toaster or something. But these Propel RC Star Wars “Battling Quad” Drones are something else: they carry lasers that can tag their opponents, grounding them after three successful hits. You’ll thus be able to conduct some pretty gnarly aerial dogfights, since these are some pretty powerful drones too, reaching their 25mph top speed in only 3 seconds. They come in 74-Z Speeder Bike, Tie Advanced X1, T-65 X-Wing Starfighter, or Millennium Falcon variants. But since we’re talking about serious toys, we’re also looking at serious prices ranging from $325 to $400.
