With the holidays coming, everyone has shopping on their minds. What do you buy for that geek who has everything? Or how about that couple you might know — he loves to cook and she’s a Star Wars fanatic? –I was trying to be fair. Check out some of these kitchen accessories below for the Star Wars geek in us all.
OMG! An R2D2 Soy Sauce Bottle! Go figure, you have to buy it from Japan. They are geniuses sometimes. This will run you approximately $18 USD. You can purchase them here .
That’s right R2D2 or R2Q5 (black version) pepper mill or sesame grinder. Same site as above, same approximate price of $18 USD. The “antenna” sticking out of the top of R2’s head is the grinder mechanism. Ingenious and hysterical. Click here for the link. I have to admit, this one has been on my Christmas list for the last couple years.
Not sure what to make with your pepper and soy sauce? Why not check out these recipes from thinkgeek.com ! The two volume set is $14.99 USD and features such stunning recipes as: Greedo’s Burritos, Twin Sun Toast, Tusken Raider Taters and Qui-Gon Jinn-ger Snaps. Wow.
This cookie jar from starwars.com is $45 USD and unfortunately, only available in the US. I’m sure other versions of this cookie jar and others (such as Bobba Fett) are available in other places. They’re hysterical and a sure hit with all Star Wars fans.
This toaster, also from starwars.com , is $50 USD and unfortunately, back ordered into the new year. Of course they are! Who wouldn’t want a toaster that burns Darth Vader’s face onto every slice?
If you’re looking for something retro and cheap, Burger King put out these Star Wars glasses ages ago. There’s tons of them around, if you look hard enough. I found quite a few on ebay priced anywhere from $2 USD to $10 USD. They are hysterical and so badly painted.
This ceramic mug is definitely cooler than the glasses. You can buy it for about $20 USD at yeoldegifts.com . The top flips up to hold your favorite beverage (beer, maybe?).
There is also, of course, a ton of molded cake pans in every Star Wars shape imaginble. Some of them, like the one pictured above, are original 1980 editions and may be a little harder to find. There’s of course, lots of edible Star Wars cake overlays, cup cake decorations, kids cups, spoons, forks, plates, etc.
But I think some of the most revolutionary products are those that have been rejected by the Star Wars franchising division. Check out some of these rejected designs I found.
This design was rejected but I’m sure that it would have been revolutionary to back yard grillers everywhere.
This Pepsi and Lucasifilm design was sadly, rejected. I am begging them to reconsider. This would be great in every family or game room. What could be cooler? Okay, that was rhetorical. Please don’t answer. I just think that some of these designs that were not accepted were really neat. Maybe one day…*sigh*.
