This Star Wars TIE Fighter Watch Costs $28,500

star-wars-watch-1

That’s a lot of dollars to spend on a timepiece, but then again, some people really do have too much money. They might even be delighted to splurge on the Darth Vader/TIE Fighter wristwatch, which is made by Devon, and is limited to 1,500 pieces. Aside from the Star Wars aesthetic, it’s got a bunch of features that presumably make sense to the discerning watch enthusiast. Here they are:

– 16L stainless steel
– True black diamond-like coating
– Scratch-resistant polycarbonate lens with bulletproof durability
– Numbered 1-500 on back plate
– Four interwoven 2-micron thin nylon time belts
– Lubricant-free ruby bearings
– Four micro-step motors
– Multiple high-tech optical recognition cells
– Temperature-compensated crystal
– Onboard microprocessor
– 313 electrical contacts
– Lithium-polymer rechargeable cell
– Powered for two weeks on one charge
– Recharge wirelessly through inductive charging tower

So yeah, sure, it costs as much as a new car, but you should know it comes with a complimentary pair of TIE Fighter cufflinks, so… that’s a deal, right? You can pre-order it right now with a $2,500 down payment, but there’s no mention of how long you’ll have to wait to get it, exactly.

Another day, another Star Wars merch; the appetite for this stuff nowadays is seemingly bottomless. The Star Wars Darth Vader Metal Can Cooler is basically a fancy koozie.

– Officially-licensed Star Wars merchandise
– A ThinkGeek creation
– Keeps your drink cold like Hoth and your hand warm like Tatooine
– Rubber inner sleeve hugs a standard 12 oz. can perfectly (or a stubby)
– Hole in bottom prevents vacuum and allows condensate to drain
– Materials: Metal exterior, rubber interior

This isn’t one of those life-changing products, but for any Star Wars aficionado, it’s an inexpensive way to declare your love and allegiance to the Dark Side.

The Millennium Falcon Bed Costs An Arm, Looks Badass

star-wars-bed-1

The Star Wars craze continues unabated, and the latest product we’ve stumbled across is this Millennium Falcon bed for kids. It’s being sold by Pottery Barn, and unlike the cheaper stuff at Ikea, is made from actual wood and not particle board. Its multi-layer finish is hand-painted, and the slat-roll foundation is designed for use with or without a box spring. It’s for kids, so if you’re thinking of getting this for yourself, you should know its dimensions: 45.5″ wide x 108.25″ long x 45.5″ high. Regardless of who this is for, this prospective buyer will need to have deep pockets since the thing costs $4,000.

Chewbacca Fur Crocs? Yes, They Exist

chewbacca-crocs-1

In a short while, everything will be Star Wars merchandise. Star Wars tacos? Probably. Star Wars toilet paper? I bet that already exists. I mean, if someone somewhere thought it would be a good idea to make fur-lined Chewbacca Crocs, then what’s not off limits? They come in men and women’s sizes up to 13 and 12 respectively, and each one includes a permanently attached Chewbacca™ badge, and the bottom band matches Chewbacca’s belt. If you’re going to wear the abomination that are Crocs, well, we suppose you might as well do it while displaying your love for Star Wars, which only partly redeems your questionable taste. They’re $60.

Star Wars Beer Steins

boba_fett_beer_stein_1

The only respectable way to drink a beer is either straight from the can, or in a beer stein. There’s no shortage of these on the market, with some more creative variations like the Das Can In Stein that turns your cans into steins. The collection we’re looking at today, however, takes the cake in terms of geek appeal. The Star War Steins feature Boba Fett, Darth Vader, or R2-D2 and are made out of solid ceramic. The hinged lid uses a legit pewter thumb lift to reveal your frosty drink inside, while each will hold 22 ounces of liquid. These are heavy, 2 lbs. steins, so it’s no toy. The price is also reflective of this, since they’ll set you back a hefty $49.99.

3D Printed Stormtrooper Foosball Heads

stormtrooper-foosball

We’ve heard it a million times: “I have a 3D printer, but I have no idea what cool stuff to print!” Well, guys, here’s a fun project. If you have a foosball table, YouMagine member Excite created a set of Stormtrooper heads that you can use to replace the ones currently on your table, by simply snapping them over the standard ones. Of course, there are limitations: it’ll only work if you have a Sportcraft table, plus it’ll upset the balance of the players which some more serious aficionados might dislike. But if you’re really looking to spice up your table, the files are available for download on the YouMagine website.

R2D2 Bluetooth Speaker

Star-Wars-R2D2-Bluetooth-Speakerphone

Well, we’re as excited as the next guy to see Star Wars merchandise flooding the Internet, but it is sort of getting to the point where you wonder what item will not be turned into Artoo or Threepio. But hey, this little Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone is sort of cute, and decently priced.

Plug this Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone into a USB port, and it’ll charge up. When it’s charged, either pair the speaker with your Bluetooth-enabled phone or plug your audio device into Artoo’s standard 3.5mm audio jack. Artoo will light up, literally, including the familiar indicator light and some new funky blue “underdome” lighting he’s had installed. Since he’s Bluetooth, you can even make calls on him when you have your phone paired up. But his raison d’etre is to play music for you. The first song we played through our Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone was the Cantina Song. It was also the second. And the third. And the… okay, we’ve got it on loop.
