Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is now less than a month away from arriving in cinemas so what better way to mark the occasion than by enjoying a bit of semi-burned bread, courtesy of the Darth Vader toaster.
The latest in an ever-expanding and increasingly outlandish Star Wars tie-ins, the Darth Vader toaster follows hot on the heels of the Death Star toaster and gives fans the chance to toast bread within the confines of the Sith Lord’s iconic black helmet.
Boasting a removable crumb tray that you’ll no doubt overlook for several months and an adjustable thermostat, this is an essential purchase for anyone worried that their breakfast times are seriously lacking when it comes to “The Force.”
Best of all, the toast is designed to essentially brand each and every piece of bread with the Star Wars logo in a clever bit of covert breakfast marketing which, unfortunately, forces the owner to enjoy semi-burned toast on a daily basis.
Settings, meanwhile, include the option to toast your bread on the light side and…the dark side while there is a defrost and quick-stop function.
The ideal present for Star Wars fans and anyone who has ever dreamt of having a Darth Vader helmet in pride of place in the kitchen, where the whole world can see it, this particular purchase does not come cheap with a current retail price of £49.99.
Unfortunately for some, no amount of Jedi mind tricks will convince the manufacturers to slash the price either. Rebel scum.
