5 Hilarious Star Wars products that every fan needs on May 4th
May the 4th be with you! In honor of Star Wars Day, we put together a list of some of the most interesting Star Wars Themed products are taking over the galaxy.
Help me R2-D2, against dirt and scum, thanks to the Oxygenics Star Wars R2-D2 3-Spray Fixed Showerhead. Your favorite Rebel droid will turn your shower into your own rebel alliance with 3 different powerful spray settings.
Pros: Makes showering more fun.
If you’re currently bored by your dull showerhead, this will really spice things up.
Con: Annoyed neighbors.
There’s only so many times you can loudly hum the Star Wars theme song before the neighbors get annoyed.
Meh: No other features.
Seems like this would be more cool if it made noise, lit up or was also a soap dispenser. After all, the real R2 does more than just one thing.
Stormtrooper/Darth Vader USB Car Charger
DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE DARK SIDE
The Empire has it all: cookies. Matching uniforms. Fancy ships. The budget to build not just one but two moon-sized space stations (after SOMEbody forgot to put the seat down on the thermal exhaust port). And power. Lots and lots of power.
Plug this Star Wars Stormtrooper USB Car Charger into your 12V vehicle power socket (cigarette lighter) to tap into the power of the Dark Side. Specifically, you’ll get 2.1 Amps flowing into your phone, tablet, or anything that charges via USB. Note: Using the power of the Dark Side will not necessarily make your device evil, but you probably want to keep a wary eye on it.
Where to buy: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/iiuk/
Pros: Curb appeal.
Guaranteed to increase the value of your ride by $20 from its coolness factor.
Cons: Going to the dark side.
Although the dark side may seem ‘bad’, it can’t be worse than a dead phone.
These adapters are usually $5 so $15 for a cooler look is a bit much.
But now, we must eat. Come, good food, come… and meet your end in the grasp of the Star Wars Light-Up Chop Sabers. They’re lightsabers. They’re chopsticks. They’ll change the way you experience your favorite Asian foods. The time is now to grab these Japanese imports from ThinkGeek and deftly maneuver your food with the power of the Force.
Go forth, brave Jedi warriors, and use your chop sabers to mix just a little extra wasabi into your soy sauce. You can handle it. It is a known fact that eating sushi with chop sabers vastly strengthens your ability to ingest horseradish products. (By the way, did you know that researchers are trying to make a smoke alarm for the deaf using wasabi vapors? We wonder how the low battery notification would function. Would deaf people find themselves mysteriously craving sushi once every 2 minutes?)
Whatever your personal sushi preference, it’s better with light-up chop sabers. Choose your side wisely and ready the way for a truly epic eating experience.

Pros: Makes chopsticks fun.
What’s more awesome than eating sushi? Eating sushi with chopsticks my young jedi.
Con: You have to know how to use chopsticks.
After all, you’ll look pretty un-jedi like if you don’t practice.
Meh: Not good underwater.
Don’t even try it unless you want to become one of those weird ghost things Jedi’s become.

Where to buy: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B013A7ICGI?psc=1
Pros: Looks cool.
The death star timer looks so delightfully real it’s terrifying!
Cons: Mass destruction.
This shoots a laser when the timer has run out, completely vaporizing your kitchen. ‘Nuff said.
Meh: Timing stuff.
Apparently the timing feature of this device is good for things that don’t need to be ultra precise. As other users commented, if they actually wanted to time something to the second they would use their smartphone.

Pros: Non-Star Wars fans just don’t get it.
This is one of those products you buy for the novelty, not because you’re looking for a world class toaster. I mean, do you even Star Wars?
Cons: Disturbing lack of toast
Meh: It prints Star Wars on the Toast
If you squint one eye you can clearly see the words “Star Wars” on this toast.
