Nestle To Release Limited Edition Star Wars Branded Coffee Machines

With the recent purchase of Lucasfilm (and the rights to Star Wars) by Disney, the franchise got an infusion of life and energy. Not that it needed it of course, since Star Wars stuff has sold pretty well over the years. But it’s no surprise to be hearing about Nestle’s announcement, especially in the wake of this news. They’re planning on making available a special limited edition of their Gold Blend coffee machine, with two themes: the “Dark Set” and Darth Vader or the “Light Set” with threepio. Each comes with a matching mug, and there will be 5,000 units made in all. Priced at 9800 Yen ($120), the machines are available starting this week, but only in Japan.
