Check out the top ‘Star Wars’ gifts on the market – CNBC
Realistic Kylo Ren Helmet
That $50 “Star Wars” Halloween costume you bought? Throw it out. Real fans are willing to spend real money to look like the real thing. That’s where Anovos steps in. The company is taking pre-orders for replicas of the helmet worn by new villain Kylo Ren.
However, patience you must have, young padawan. Deliveries won’t happen until spring. Don’t be patient in deciding to buy, however. Prices are $560 if you order before the end of November, but after that they jump to $699. You can also pre-order a First Order Stormtrooper helmet for $250, which will be delivered in January.
But if you can’t wait, and you have a ton of cash, buy the full Darth Vader costume now. May the Force be with your wallet. The faux leather edition costs $2,750, but the high-end genuine leather outfit is priced at $5,780. Impressive.
The Galactic Empire Laptop
“Unleash your inner Sith,” boasts the promo for an HP “Star Wars” laptop starting at $699. Notice it’s not about unleashing your inner Jedi. Oh no, Darth Vader and the Dark Side have always been more powerful with fans. The black distressed laptop with red backlighting on the keyboard is loaded with special “Star Wars” screen savers, sound effects and 1,100 images from the franchise. It’s powered by a sixth generation Intel Core processor, which â€” one hopes â€” makes the jump to lightspeed.
Darth Vader Toaster
Luke, Han and Leia have to toast the Darth Side. Lord Vader rules when it comes to sales. What better gift to give the “Star Wars” newlyweds you know â€” and we all know them! â€” than a toaster in the shape of Darth Vader’s helmet. For $50, you even get the “Star Wars” logo branded into every slice. It is your destiny to own this.
You could buy Princess Leia’s bikini costume from “The Return of the Jedi” at Target for $30, but only if you have lots and lots of confidence and an immensely positive body image. I do not. Instead, HerUniverse sells “Star Wars” themed every day apparel, like a $75 lightsaber skirt or a $50 Tarkin’s patch sweater. I got the full “geekanista” makeover treatment from owner Ashley Eckstein at this year’s Comic-Con.
Add some special “Star Wars” makeup from Cover Girl and the most amazing shoes in the history of the Empire from Aberrant.Flashing lightsaber heels for $345 a pair, or for a little less, buy heels supported by Yoda. Still, at $300, a lot of money that is, on shoes, to spend.
