You Can Now Eat the Death Star for Breakfast
If you’ve ever woken up with an urge to start your day by destroying the Death Star, thanks to ThinkGeek you now can.
The website is now selling a Star Wars-themed waffle maker that makes your breakfast look like the Empire’s ultimate weapon. The appliance costs $39.99 and comes with non-stick, cast aluminum cooking plates that produce the design on both sides of your waffle.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the franchise’s latest movie, is scheduled to come out in theaters on December 18. This is just the latest product cashing in on the hype. Some of the interesting ones include Furbacca (Furby + Chewbacca), a Star Wars edition of the game Risk, and a remote-control droid.
With all of these products, Star Wars is expected to be huge this holiday season. Joel Bines, managing director at consulting firm AlixPartners, told USA Today: “You will not be able to avoid Star Wars merchandise.” The publication reports that Star Wars-themed products are estimated to bring in $3 billion by the end of 2015 and $5 billion with the next year.
