The Star Wars phenomenon is taking over the world. The latest movie in the franchise, The Force Awakens, has already dethroned Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all time in North America. That’s an incredible feat considering the record was broken in just twenty days. With all this hype comes some pretty awesome Star Wars merchandise. To celebrate the seventh film in the franchise, here’s a look at seven pieces of merchandise that should catch the eye of any Star Wars fans. After all, we have to find some way to kill time until Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released in December.
R2-D2 Mini Fridge
This fridge can hold a six-pack of 12-ounce cans. It has settings for both warm and cool. Many characters relied on this droid throughout all of the Star Wars movies. Now you can rely on him to keep your beer cold. This little guy will set you back $79.99.
Fathead Hon Solo in Carbonite Wall Decal
This one is kind of amazing. Fathead makes some cool products, but this might be their best one. Now your home can have the same decor that Jabba the Hut had in his palace. This has a width of 31″ and a height of 78″ and looks great on a wall or door. Fathead also threw in other, smaller pieces to make the suggested $99.99 retail price worthwhile.
Han Solo and Chewbacca used this iconic ship for many purposes. Now you can use the Falcon to listen to your audio library or take calls. This speaker can wirelessly stream music from up to thirty feet away and has easy Bluetooth setup. If you’re feeling a bit more rebellious, this is also available in the style of a TIE fighter. You can also purchase a Star Destroyer Bluetooth speaker if you rather join The Dark Side. All three options retail for $49.99.
R2-D2 Trash Can
Here’s another cool item featuring R2-D2. No one likes trash, but at least we can make it more bearable with this little guy. You step on his center foot and his droid head will pop open which will allow you to dispose of your trash. The waste bin inside of this droid is 11″ tall. Originally only available in Japan, this can now be purchased in The United States for $129.99.
HP Star Wars Special Edition Laptop
This special edition 15.6-inch laptop has 6 GB RAM, a 1 TB hard drive and Intel Core i5. It comes pre-loaded with Windows 10 and a bunch of exclusive Star Wars content. It has a sleek Dark Side design that should please any loyal subject of the Empire. This laptop will cost you $649.99.
Tauntaun Sleeping Bag
The Empire Strikes Back features the iconic scene where Han Solo uses Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber to slice open a Tauntaun carcass so he could place Luke inside of it to keep him from freezing on the icy cold Hoth planet. Now you can recreate this legendary scene with your very own Tauntaun sleeping bag minus the horrible smell and Tauntaun guts. This retails for $149.99.
This droid quickly won the hearts of people everywhere and now you can have your own. You can guide this droid with you smart phone or tablet. It will respond and react to your voice. It can send and play virtual holographic videos. It also has an adaptive personality so its personality changes as it interacts with you. This retails for $199.99, but has been sold as low as $149.99. This might just be the droid you’re looking for.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Star Wars merchandise. Walk into any retail store and you’ll most likely stumble upon something Star Wars related. It’s easy to predict that the onslaught of Star Wars won’t be stopped anytime soon. Now we just wait patiently until they bring back Star Wars Doritos.
