Let’s Hope Razer’s Stormtrooper Accessories are More Accurate Than Their Namesake

Star Wars fans, Razer has taken wraps off of their Stormtrooper Edition accessories, which include a BlackWidow Lite mechanical keyboard, the Atheris wireless mouse, and Goliathus Extended gaming mouse mat, each featuring an Imperial stormtrooper theme. Let’s hope they don’t affect your aim in game and make you get ambushed by a pack of wild Ewoks.

The special edition BlackWidow Lite Silent Mechanical Keyboard features a stormtrooper top plate, a black-and-white braided cable and an Imperial crest on the Escape key, while the Atheris Wireless Mouse sports the iconic Imperial stormtrooper helmet on the mouse itself. The Goliathus Extended Gaming Mouse Mat has an image of a squad of stormtroopers against a partial Imperial emblem and a cool black-and-white design.

Gamers who ally themselves with the Dark Side and the Empire now have some cool new gear to buy. They are available now with the keyboard costing $99.99, the mouse and the mouse mat selling for $59.99 and $34.99, respectively. These accessories look pretty sweet and all have great designs.

LEGO Star Wars BOOST Droid Commander Kit Coming This Fall

Back in 2017, LEGO introduced BOOST, a cool way to help kids learn to code. Now the company has announced the latest product in the lineup. The LEGO Star Wars Boost Droid Commander kit will include R2-D2 and two other programmable droids. This is the first time that the educational kit series has been paired with a licensed product, and is great news for Star Wars fans.

This kit comes with 1,177 pieces to create three cool looking droids: R2-D2, Gonk, and the Mouse droid. You also get a companion mobile app for iOS, Android, and Fire tablets that includes a game that you can play with the droids.

The game includes Star Wars locales like Bespin and Tatooine, and there are pieces for crafting droid accessories that work with certain games. Kids can create their own stories and battlegrounds based on over 40 interactive missions. Fans can expect the new LEGO Star Wars BOOST Droid Commander kit on September 1, 2019 for $199.99.

It’s easy to imagine more of these sets arriving after this, with other droids that Star Wars fans know and love. It looks like a lot of fun for kids, and I’m sure many adults will get in on the action too.

Star Wars and Marvel Meta Mugs: Arm Yourself with Caffeine

If you’re like me, you could always use another cup of coffee. If you’re going to constantly be reaching for a hot cuppa joe, you should drink it out of a cool mug, I say. Firebox has some fun mugs for fans of Marvel superheroes as well as Star Wars which are worth checking out.

First up are the Marvel Meta Mugs, each of which features the chest of a famous superhero. What makes them special are their handles, which each look like the spandex-clad arm of one of your favorite heroes. They come in Black Panther, Iron Man, Spider-Man, The Hulk, or Thor versions.

If you prefer your coffee like your men – Dark-sided, then maybe a Darth Vader, or Stormtrooper mug will do the trick from the Star Wars Meta Mug collection. My personal favorite is the C-3PO mug – which has a shimmery golden look, and all those wires in his belly.

All of the mugs are available from Firebox for $13.99 each.

YD Handpicks: Perfect Star Wars-inspired products to kick off May 4th!

The fourth day of the fifth month of the year holds no scientific or religious significance, but still is one of the most pop-culturally important days in the year. Why, you ask? Because the fourth of May is celebrated by nerds, movie buffs, and pop-cult lovers alike as Star Wars Day. Often heralded by greeting fellow Star Wars lovers with “May the Fourth be with you”, a hat-tip to an iconic dialogue from the film. Today, we celebrate the iconic series that spawned a culture that spread so far and wide, it’s probably also recognized in galaxies far far away. Here are a few designs that capture the phenomenon that is Star Wars!

Plox Levitating Death Star Speaker

Perhaps the coolest application of levitation technology, the 5 watt speaker defies gravity as well as epectations.

Onnit Star Wars Kettlebells

Star Wars-inspired gym equipment that takes “force being with you” perhaps a little too literally, these kettlebells are shaped like iconic characters from the films. Made from chip-resistant iron, the bells weigh 50, 60, and 70lbs respectively, and work as gym-equipment as well as fan-collectibles! Click Here to Buy Now

X-Wing Knife Block

The X-Wing Knife Block has a way of making your knives look menacingly futuristic. With the ability to dock 5 knives, the X-Wing inspired block takes knife blades and uses them as laser-turrets.

ThinkGeek Darth Vader Clapper

No Star Wars reference is complete without perhaps the greatest antagonist of all time… Mr. Vader himself. While the human species is far from being able to perform mind-control the way Darth Vader can, ThinkGeek’s Vader Clapper allows you to turn appliances on and off with a clap. I’d say that’s sort of just as impressive. Click Here to Buy Now

The Fowndry Darth Vader Kettle

How does Vader like his tea? Burning hot! Although he doesn’t complain if it’s Luke-warm either… The Fowndry’s hilarious, quirky kettle pays tribute to one of cinema’s most popular villains. Designed with a silhouette that uncannily resembles Vader’s helmet, the Darth Vader Kettle comes made in Stainless Steel and Plastic, has a 1.7L capacity, and a whistle that the creators describe as being powerful enough to “awaken the Force”! We’re loving every bit of the adaptation, especially the handle that was designed to resemble the grip of Darth Vader’s lightsaber.

Darth Vader ToothSaber

Bordering on a novelty item, this one’s a favorite just for the mechanism behind it. The toothpicks get housed in Vader’s cloak, and every time you use the toothpick Vader is holding onto, you can trigger his hand to reach into his cloak and promptly grab another one. The mechanism is virtually an eyegasm to look at, and the product, truly inspired! Click Here to Buy Now

This one’s more than just a Vader-shaped toasting appliance. It even goes as far as to brand your toast with the official Star Wars logo!
