Star Wars Gear for Star Wars Day!

Did you know that Today Star Wars Day? Take a few minutes to figure out why! In the mean time, I present to you a list of some of my favorite, and I would say absolutely practical, Star Wars gear. Anyone can go out and buy the Star Wars Box Set or a slave Leia costume, but this stuff is truly special!

Star Wars Flash Drives

You probably need a flash drive anyways, so why not get a 4G mac compatible flash drive in the shape of your favorite Star Wars character. You can’t tell me that having C3PO or R2-D2 store information for you doesn’t make a lot of sense.

THESE AREN'T THE DROIDS YOU'RE LOOKING FOR....

Lego Star Wars Alarm Clock

Why do I think you need a Lego Storm Trooper alarm clock? Probably because I already have one and then we can be twins. I promise you’ll feel safer with one of these guys looking over you at night. Actually that’s probably only true if you pick Yoda.

WHEN 900 YEARS YOU REACH, LOOK THIS GOOD, YOU WILL NOT

Rebel Alliance Earrings

Nothing says true fandom like an understated piece of Star Wars jewelry. You can show your secret passion for the rebel alliance while keeping it classy with these adorable rebel alliance earrings.

YOU ARE PART OF THE REBEL ALLIANCE AND A TRAITOR! TAKE HER AWAY!

+

Star Wars Cufflinks

If you prefer your jewelry more dapper to dangly, you can still discreatly let out your inner geek with these awesome Star Wars cufflinks. If cufflinks aren’t your style, you can always go for the rebel alliance tie clip.

+

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag

Bring your Star Wars fantasy playing to a whole new level by actually sleeping inside a dead tauntaun just like Luke! (Note: not actually a dead sci-fi creature)

THIS MAY SMELL BAD, KID, BUT IT'LL KEEP YOU WARM UNTIL I GET THE SHELTER UP

+

Kitchen Gear

You are not too old to buy a bunch of kitchen stuff and throw a Star Wars birthday party with Wookie cookies and Millennium Falcon sandwiches. Actually, you’re not even too old to just eat Millennium Falcon sandwiches for no reason.

+

R2-D2 Wall Decal

I just refuse to believe I’m the only person who secretly wants an R2-D2 to just hang out with all the time. I think the key to this full sized R2-D2 wall decal is to put it in a corner of a nursery, home office or college classroom where it might startle/trick passersby.

IF R2-D2 AND I COULD HANG OUT ALL THE TIME MY LIFE WOULD BE BOTH MORE AWESOME AND MORE DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN

Lego Star Wars Watches

Question I received on formspring:
I’m looking for a watch, but I’m allergic to nickel and am a vegetarian. I just need a nice, everyday watch that doesn’t cost a bunch of money. Can you suggest something?
Answer:I suggest these.

 

Happy Star Wars Day and MAY the FOURTH be with you!

  1. I feel like such a failure right now. All day long, as people would say “May the Fourth be with you” I have wanted to club them to death with my Limited Edition Star Wars Yoda collectible figurine. I see now, I was wrong, and I apologize.

    • That is correct. You should be using a Ventress figure.

      Now to get one of those R2-D2 flash drives. I have some …plans… that must be smuggled.

  2. I have that lunch box from the kitchen section that comes with cookie cutters, though I really should make some cookies so I could actually use the cookie cutters.

    At some point I will get the cufflinks and alarm clock, it’s just a matter of time.

  3. oh my goodness, i actually screamed when i saw those cookies cutters, i actually screamed way too loudly and my mom thought there was a fire. she was still really freaked when i asked to use her credit card, so SUCESS.

  4. Once upon a time I bought my then girlfriend a Darth Vader Lego watch as part of her Christmas gift. Until recently, it had been sitting in my attic for about a year and a half (as we had broken up before Christmas). Now it belongs to a very excited 5 y.o. that I babysit.
    May the fourth be with you, my little friend.

  5. Today’s actually my 20th bday! so stoked its shared with star wars day! may ur inner-geek shine through! may the force and the fourth be with you!

  6. I want those cufflinks!

    Looking at these Star Wars merch and the o.b. tampon ad is giving me phantom cramps or real cramps, either way it a menace!!!!!

    *checks calendar*

  7. Since I am a true diehard Star Wars fans the other 364 days of the year, it’s so good to see my kind emerge from the woodwork today. May the Fourth be with you all (for another hour, at least)

  8. One of my friends texted me, “May the fourth be with you” and it took me entirely too long to get it. Her response: “And you call yourself a nerd?!” Anywho…I really want that R2D2 flash drive.

    And finally, in honor of today, one of my favorite stand up routines of all time: the death star canteen

  9. Me: May the fourth be with you!
    Friend: What?
    Me: Star Wars day, get it?
    Friend: Uh, no.
    Me: …wait, have you seen Star Wars?
    Friend: Only Episode one.
    Me: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    • I KNOW. I am shocked SHOCKED by how many of my “friends” have not seen Star Wars at ALL or have only seen one or two films. D: How did this happen? How am I surrounded by these people?? ARGGG.
