We’ve seen Star Wars clothing and merchandise on this site before, like the incredibly sexy Star Wars Swimsuits and elegant Star Wars Maxi-Dresses. It’s always wonderful to see your childhood interact with the real world, through practical, every-day necessities.
Even if you’re not the type to dress up in Star Wars clothes, there are still options for you. You could get a Star Wars themed poster, comforter, plates, or even Star Wars chopsticks.
Yes, these chopsticks are real. They’re made of a light, durable plastic and come in all sorts of different colors and shapes. The only downside is the price (between $15 and $20 per set) and the fact that they don’t have textured grips at the end of the chopsticks. A novice chopstick user might have a little bit of difficulties eating with these.
Then again, who says you have to eat with them. You can just display them, keep them with the rest of your Star Wars stuff, or give it to a friend for Christmas.
In case you’re unsure which of the seven Star Wars chopsticks you should buy, here is a quick breakdown:
Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker)
Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker was prophesied to bring balance to the Force. Unfortunately, he falls to the dark side of the Force and teams up with the Sith master Darth Sidious to take on the galaxy. He also kills a lot of people.
He’s an iconic Star Wars character regarded as one of the greatest movie villains of all time.
Darth Vader is a bad-guy, but he’s not a bad guy, per se. He does get redemption.
Luke Skywalker is an incredibly powerful Jedi Master and force for good. He’s basically the hero archetype – a young man, still wet behind the ears, and ready for adventure. He faces his trials, wins, and earns the respect of his community.
It’s not a bad story and, if you relate to Luke, you can always pick up your own pair of chopsticks modeled off his lightsaber.
His bright blue lightsaber is a part of his image, using the Force for good.
Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi
Obi-Wan is the ultimate mentor and friend to both the Skywalker boys. He trained and took care of Anakin, in his pre-Darth Vader days. During the end of his life, he also mentored Luke. Then, even after his death, he appears as a spirit to help Luke.
Basically Obi-Wan is just a really helpful guy. If you relate to that, you can pick up your “spirit light saber” chopsticks on eBay.
Jedi Master Yoda is one of the most beloved Star Wars characters. He is/was one of the oldest and most powerful Jedi Masters in the Star Wars universe who dies peacefully at the ripe age of 900. Just like Obi-Wan, his body disappears.
He’s best known for his round-about way of talking and the fact he is a tiny, very old green Jedi with large pointy ears. Just like his skin, his light saber is green.
Yoda sensed early on that Anakin might be a bad apple. He’s a very wise.
Count Dooku is yet another bad apple in the Star Wars universe. He was once a very respected Jedi Master, until he allowed himself to get drawn over to the dark side. He’s Darth Sidious’s second apprentice, but his master is not too loyal to him. Darth Sidious urges Anakin to decapitates a helpless Dooku (which he does).
Mace Windu is a noble and powerful Jedi Master, and was one of the last Jedi Masters still on the High Council. He is a strong, wise, and skilled Jedi Master. He nearly defeats Darth Sidious, but is interrupted by Anakin. Anakin cuts off his lightsaber hand and Darth Sidious throws him out of a window using the Force.
His death was very heroic and dramatic.
Darth Maul is just another bad guy. He’s famous for his terrifying black and red horned face and the fact that he wields a double-bladed lightsaber. In his last battle, he stabs Qui-Gon Jinn in the stomach (killing him). Right after that, and enraged Obi-Wan slices him in half with a lightsaber.
It is a very memorable death – both pieces of his body fall into a very deep chasm.
