Darth Vader, Star Wars Honored with Toasty Treatment

Darth Vader, Star Wars Honored with Toasty Treatment

The head of the infamous villain from the sci-fi saga can make special scorched versions of the favorite food item

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away a group of rebels took down a mighty and oppressive empire. Of course, this is the plot of the well known and beloved Star Wars trilogy which has captured the hearts and imaginations of generations to come (although the second trilogy was not as beloved). Now that J.J. Abrams is creating new movies for the world to enjoy, the surge of Star Wars nostalgia has surfaced and a new wave of memorabilia like action figures, light sabers and, yes, even a novelty toaster that looks like the film franchises most iconic villain.

The Darth Vader toaster is a replica of the infamous Darth Vader helmet that can scorch toast with either the Star Wars logo or the image of the helmet itself. It is a must have for any die-hard science-fiction fan and provides an component of a balanced breakfast to help jedis save the day…or sith lords to take over it. There has also been another Star Wars toaster that burned images into the bread but it looks like a regular toaster with the logo emblazoned on the side.

The toaster costs about $50 USD, and will not be available until September 2014. However, if you want, you can place an order now to make sure you can bring a little bit of the Empire to your breakfast nook. If only they could develop a light saber butter knife — now that would be a real collector’s item.
