BB-8 Track Jacket available at Think Geek
Movie theaters are all different nowadays, from the high-end ones with adjustable seats and a dinner menu available down to the ones that can almost keep you there with their sticky floors alone. But even with such vast difference, there are a few things they all have in common. Sodas cost too much. The folks who talk should be ejected. And the temperature’s never quite right.
That’s why it pays to dress in layers when you’re going to the movies. And since we’re all going to the theater this December, it seems wise to plan ahead. This midweight track jacket features BB-8’s design screenprinted 360° around it. It’s perfect to pack for the movies or for the office when your boss, who has the only thermostat, decides the building should be a walk-in freezer and then leaves for the day.
Boxers available at Think Geek
THE DARK SIDE OF THE UNDERWEAR DRAWER
Maybe you’re a member of the 501st, but not every occasion calls for full armor. Driving to an event? Easier without the hermetic collar hindering your lane-change head turn. Grocery shopping? The body glove will protect you from the frozen foods section, but the gloves make it hard to get your money out of your wallet. So for your casual days, let us offer this option: Star Wars Costume Boxers.
With these Star Wars Costume Boxers, you can wear a costume that nobody but you knows about. Or, well, you and a very select audience. Choose Darth Vader or Stormtrooper. The costume design is on the front, but the back is plain for additional identify protection. Because you never know where you’ll encounter Bothan spies.
Vader Cape Dress available at Hot Topic
Come to the dark side and transform into a Sith Lord with this Hot Topic exclusive dress from Star Wars. Black cape design with hematite tone studded Darth Vader helmet detail.
Empire beanie available at Hot Topic
Black & white pom beanie from Star Wars with “EMPIRE” logo design on the foldover.
Ewok Wrap Scarf available at Think Geek
Ewoks. Either you love them or you hate them. Since you’re on this page, we’re gonna assume you’re in the former camp. But since not everybody is, you might want to carry a spear with you while you’re wearing this, in case you have to defend the honor of Ewoks everywhere. Allow us to recommend the one from the M48 Long handle Tactical Survival Series. Ain’t nobody going to mess with you when you’re carrying that. And maybe remind them, as our Lucasfilm rep once reminded us, that Ewoks eat people.
Wrap yourself in a Star Wars Ewok Knit Hooded Scarf both to stay warm and to express your Star Wars fandom in the most kawaii way possible. The scarf measures a generous 55″ around so you can get a lovely drape on it. And, of course, we made this at our awesome village in the trees. We’re going to schedule all meetings for the Ewok Village from here on out. Because we can.
BB-8 Infinity Scarf available at Think Geek
BB-8 definitely has a head but not so much a neck, so wearing a dashing scarf as a fashion accessory isn’t really a possibility. We guess R2-D2 and C-3PO will have to pick up the slack. You know C-3PO would rock some scarf action.
Don this BB-8 Infinity scarf to show your infinite love for the new droid. The super lightweight scarf features a repeating red and orange pattern of BB-8’s. When you scrunch it down around your neck, it’s kind of difficult to make out what the design is, but then you can unfold it and let everyone ooh and aah at your new movie merch. Well done.
Kylo Ren Lightsaber Necklace available at Think Geek
MAKE IT YOURS
How many of us have built our own lightsabers? Now, ours might not cut have through our opponents. In fact, we generally had to provide the sound effects ourselves, but we’ve gotten pretty good at mimicking the low hum of a lightsaber while circling our enemy. And frequently ours were made out of wrapping paper tubes. But that’s beside the point. The point is: we totally get where Kylo Ren is coming from. The ability to create your own lightsaber is pretty special.
This necklace celebrates Kylo Ren’s lightsaber in all its crazy cross-guard bladed glory. Wear it around your neck as a shoutout to makers here and in galaxies far, far away.
For customers with nickel allergies: these are made from 316L grade surgical stainless steel. That means their five main components are iron, chromium, nickel (10-14%), molybdenum, and manganese. This is implant-grade steel.
BB-8 Desk Lamp available at Think Geek
LET THIS DROID HELP YOU AWAKEN
He doubles as a projector, a fire extinguisher, a navigator, and a power coupler. We know all the things that R2-D2 does, but we don’t yet know all the things BB-8 has up its… well, up its metaphorical sleeves. Maybe it also doubles as a lamp in a sticky situation. We just don’t know.
But it definitely can double as a lamp for you. This BB-8 Desktop Lamp stands 8 1/2″ tall and casts light on your subject of choice, whether that’s astronavigation or algebra. It has LED light inside the head, which shines downward through a diffuser. A gentle tap on BB-8’s head switches between three different lighting modes: natural white, amber, and warm white. And off. Also a good mode when you need to go to sleep.
Kylo Ren and BB-8 plush available at Think Geek
JUDGE THEM BY THEIR SIZE, DO YOU?
Here’s the truth, ladies and gentlemen; we really hate to tell you this, but we feel we must. The entire Star Wars saga was shot with severely distorting lenses. It’s how George Lucas saved money for the special effects (and shot the whole original trilogy in his basement). That’s right, the average size of an actor in Star Wars was about 7″ tall – which means, these Star Wars- The Force Awakens Plush characters are actually almost life size!
Each one is officially-licensed by Lucasfilm. They are huggable and throwable and small enough to hide in a backpack or on your desk. Kylo Ren even has a hood you can put up or down. And if you are worried about the size, just remember Yoda’s wise words:
Captain Phasma Ring available at Think Geek
SUBMIT YOUR BLASTER FOR INSPECTION
You know, as much as we love the chrome armor on Captain Phasma, we bet it was super-hard to film. Certain angles would be right out because you’d get a reflection of the camera person in the scene, and you’d have to move with her to avoid getting in the shot. We do not envy the camera people on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Okay. Who are we kidding? We DO envy the camera people on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, just not while they were trying to get good shots of Gwendoline Christie.
Celebrate Captain Phasma with a solid steel ring. As shiny as her helmet, this ring is sure to get the attention of your friends. And if it doesn’t, you can rap it on the side of their head. That’ll get their attention.
For our customers with nickel allergies: these are made from 316L grade surgical stainless steel. That means their five main components are iron, chromium, nickel (10-14%), molybdenum, and manganese. This is implant-grade steel.

Vader Business shirt available at Superhero Stuff
The 100% cotton Star Wars Vader Business 30 Single T-Shirt shows off the business end of the Dark Side…and here you thought cloaks and robes were scary. A guy in a two piece is always more terrifying! Showing off a pair of Stormtroopers and the Dark Lord of the Sith in suits, the Star Wars Vader Business 30 Single T-Shirt is amazingly soft and a great way to avoid paying ‘protection’.
Vader Waffle Maker available at Superhero Stuff
The exceptional Star Wars Darth Vader Waffle Maker actually started a rather lively discussion on what constitutes the difference between a pancake and a waffle here in the office. Is it the same batter? Do they require ridges? Is a pancake made in a pan and a waffle made in an iron? How much Dark Side goes into a waffle? I won’t get into the details, because you need to get the Star Wars Darth Vader Waffle Maker in order to come to your own conclusions. With precise shade control, classic styling, and all sorts of fancy bells and whistles, the Star Wars Darth Vader Waffle Maker is the best part of waking up!
