Star Wars Planetary Glassware Set

Looking for a drink that’s out of this world? What about a drink in a glass that’s from a galaxy far, far away? Well, I don’t know about reaching the farthest reaches of the universe, but we can at least imagine with the Star Wars Planetary Glassware Set by ThinkGeek!

 

When you’re little, you are bombarded with mobiles and models made with styrofoam balls and shoebox dioramas and all sorts of interactive, creative ways to visualize our solar system. It’s a good way to learn where we are in the universe, and it gives kids some perspective. Pale blue dot.

So why not use similar methods to learn to visualize other solar systems, too? This Star Wars Planetary Glassware Set lets you gaze upon otherworldly beauty while drinking your orange juice. Or blue milk. Plus it lets you start a conversation about the differences between planets (Alderaan, Dagobah, Hoth, and Tatooine) and moons (the forest moon of Endor) or even space stations (the Death Star). First thing we’re doing when we get ours is filing Hoth with vanilla ice cream. Or better yet – snow cream!

This ThinkGeek creation & exclusive set contains 6 glasses featuring; 4 planets (Alderaan, Dagobah, Hoth, and Tatooine) + 1 moon (the forest moon of Endor) + 1 that’s-no-moon (the Death Star).

Would you show off your geek glory with the Star Wars Planetary Glassware Set by ThinkGeek?

Check this out, Star Wars fans!! With the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” Regal “Ultimate” Ticket, fans can go see the movie an unlimited number of times, in all formats, for the duration of the movie’s release. That means seeing it in standard, 3D, RPX, and IMAX over and over and over again without any additional cost.

The collectible ticket is a laser-cut anodized steel card with the Rogue One logo (and REGAL Ultimate Ticket logo) emblazoned in gold. A glossy Rebel Alliance phoenix insignia completes the package. Your name is inscribed into the back of the card, as well. Only 1,000 cards are being produced and released.

The Rogue One Ultimate Ticket runs $100 plus shipping and can be bought only on the web via Regal’s website. It takes 2-3 weeks to arrive, so you’ll most likely still need your individual tickets for the opening weekend in 16-17 days. Each card has to be ordered separately, as they’re personalized. Yes, that personalization means they’re also non-transferable: you’ll have to show photo ID when you’re picking up your ticket at the box office for admission.

So how much is this actually worth? Well, the last Regal Ultimate Ticket was for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which was in theaters for a total of 12 weeks. If you saw the movie once a week for 12 weeks, at an average of around $15 (if you split viewings between the different formats), that’s $180 worth of tickets. Of course, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was in theaters for double the time – 24 weeks, so you could as much as double that, especially taking into account the lack of major blockbusters in January and February that should keep momentum going for Rogue One. And that’s all, of course, based on only going once a week, while you can absolutely go more often if you like. At $20 a pop for IMAX, you only need to see it five times to pay for the card in the large format screens.

Go to the Regal Entertainment Group website now to pick up the Ultimate Ticket so you have it in time for opening week. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits US theaters December 16, 2016. Directed by Gareth Edwards, it’s the first of the new standalone features from Lucasfilm.

What if The Mos Eisley was a tropical Tiki Bar? Well I bet they’d serve up some delicious drinks in these Star Wars Geeki Tikis by Think Geek! Or maybe that’s just my own nerdy patio!

What better tiki mug to drink from than one that looks like a character from the Star Wars? Choose to drink with Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, R2-D2, a Stormtrooper, or Yoda. Each holds about 14 oz. and has a contrasting interior, which will make you happy when you get to the bottom of the drink and have to ask, “But why is the rum gone?” Or at least, it’ll entertain you a little. We think the lack of rum has something to do with moisture farming, but you didn’t hear it from us.

Exclusive Star Wars Jedi Robe Sleeved Blanket by ThinkGeek

The Jedi? They crave comfort. When these sleeved blankets first came out people said, “Hey. They look like big ol’ Jedi robes. There’s a Jedi master sitting on my couch!”

Prove them right with this sleeved blanket that comes emblazoned with the symbol of the Jedi Order. Choose to curl up on the couch or stage a lightsaber duel in your living room (it has two pockets for convenient hilt storage). In fact this fleece is so comfortable, it can be a religious experience. It’s so darn soft and snugly, we imagine it’s something like hugging a Wookiee, if Chewie brushed his mats out more often. Only with less chance of being dismembered in the process. Bonus.

Would you warm up like a Jedi in this snugly Star Wars Jedi Robe Sleeved Blanket?

Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone by ThinkGeek

Plug this Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speaker into a USB port, and it’ll charge up. When it’s charged, either pair the speaker with your Bluetooth-enabled phone or plug your audio device into Artoo’s standard 3.5mm audio jack. Artoo will light up, literally, including the familiar indicator light and some new funky blue “underdome” lighting he’s had installed. Since he’s Bluetooth, you can even make calls on him when you have your phone paired up. But his raison d’etre is to play music for you. The first song we played through our Star Wars R2-D2 Bluetooth Speakerphone was the Cantina Song. It was also the second. And the third. And the… okay, we’ve got it on loop.

Would you rock out the galaxy with this R2-D2 Bluetooth Speaker?

Be prepared to wield the Force like a Jedi with this incredible App Controlled battle worn Battle Worn BB-8 Robot by Sphero. Last year the Sphero BB-8 was a Star Wars fan’s dream, and this updated version is even cooler!

The Force is strong with you. Channel it with the Star Wars Force Band by Sphero. Like a Jedi Knight, you can control your BB-8 App-Enabled Droid with just a wave of your hand and expand your abilities with Force Training. Use the band by itself to complete Combat Training, or collect digital holocrons in your environment through Force Awareness. Fulfill your destiny and become strong in the ways of the Force.

Pair your Force Band with Special Edition Battle-Worn BB-8, straight from the sands of Jakku. This Astromech Droid reflects the wear and tear of trekking across the galaxy on Resistance missions. Watch your Droid explore autonomously, guide BB-8 yourself, or create and view holographic recordings. BB-8 is more than a toy – it’s your companion.

The Force Band is compatible with the original BB-8 App-Enabled Droid by Sphero and other Sphero robots powered by Bluetooth SMART.
