A long time ago in all sorts of places there used to be some really boring items out there, but then Star Wars came along and changed all of that. People became inspired and they made all kinds of cool stuff from the Star Wars universe. Here are five items that will help you relive your youth and bring the Force into your life!
Tauntaun Sleeping Bag
In the sub-zero wasteland of the planet Hoth, only the strong survive… and of course those lucky Jedi protected by the thick skin of a Tauntaun. Now after exhaustive movie viewing research and analysis the exact synthetic compounds needed to re-create Tauntaun fur have been found. What do you do with this supreme knowledge? You create a Tauntaun sleeping bag, of course.
This high-quality sleeping bag looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, internal intestines and plush lightsaber zipper pull. Now when your kids tell you their favorite Star Wars movie is “Attack of the Clones” you can nestle the wee-ones snug in simulated Tauntaun fur while regaling them with the amazing tale of “Empire Strikes Back“.
Use the plush lightsaber zipper pull on the Tauntaun sleeping bag to illustrate how Han Solo saved Luke Skywalker from certain death in the freezing climate of Hoth by slitting open the belly of a dead Tauntaun and placing Luke inside the stinking (but warm) carcass. If your kids don’t change their tune on which Star Wars film is the greatest ever, you can do your best Jar Jar impression until they repent. Great for adults or children. Price: $99.99.

Yoda Plush Backpack
Ever since its release in 1980, The Empire Strikes Back has fueled the dreams of Star Wars geeks across the world. Considered by many to be the best of the Star Wars saga, it was the first film where we really learned what it took to be a Jedi. Sure Obi Wan taught us a little in A New Hope, but it wasn’t until we met Yoda that we truly realized how powerful the Force was and how hard it was to master. Yoda was the pinnacle of what a Jedi should be: mighty and humble, wise and peaceful. Even though he was tiny, we got glimpses of his immense power (really, I mean a whole X-Wing?!?)
Once we saw Yoda, we all knew we wanted a Jedi master of our own – a Jedi master who would take us running in the woods, ride on our back, and teach us the ways of the Force. We tried strapping a cat to our back, but it wasn’t the same. But now you can have Yoda…on your back…teaching you…and carrying our stuff inside him. Perfect! And, to make it even better, the straps are adjustable and sized for adults. All you need now is a dirty, sleeveless t-shirt and some khaki’s and you will be ready for your Jedi training to begin. Be.Will you? Height: 25” Depth: 13.4” Price: $34.99. Click Here to buy it now!
Not that you’ve noticed… but all fine restaurants on Tatooine feature R2-D2 pepper grinders. Usually after you order your salad of Dagobah greens a Wookie will come around and offer you some fresh ground pepper from one of these handy droid-based mills. Word to the wise… never refuse a Wookie.
Now, these R2-D2 pepper mills are available from eateries all over Tatooine for your spice grinding pleasure. Simply twist R2′s head and he deposits pepper onto your food. Hey, it’s not a glamorous job for a droid… but much better than being abducted by Jawas. Details: 4.5” High Price: $19.99. Click Here to buy it now!
Trash is just not that cool. Not only can it be dirty and odorous but it’s simply low-tech and boring. At least that’s what we used to think… until we saw this amazing R2-D2 Trashcan and learned to love trash. This stylish trash receptacle is imported from Japan and is an incredibly detailed replica of R2-D2. Step on R2′s center “foot” and his dome swings wide to collect your expired TPS reports and leftover wookie dung. In fact here at the ThinkGeek rebel base we’ve been generating extra waste just for the pleasure of disposing it inside our favorite droid. Everything was going great until we emptied the trash and accidentally discarded some Death Star plans… then the Rebel Massassi Outpost on the fourth moon of Yavin got destroyed and things just went downhill from there. Stands 24” high. Price: $99.99. Click Here to buy it now!
