9 Essential, And Not-So-Essential Toys For Any Star Wars Fan This Christmas

It’s only a month until the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens is released, so just in time for Christmas, here’s a digest of all that good stuff no self-respecting Star Wars fan would be seen without.

R2D2 minifridge

The unveling of this product almost broke the internet, but before you can scream TAKE MY MONEY, bear in mind that a purchase of this charming, remote controlled fridge in the shape of everyone’s favourite Astromech droid, might actually take all your money, coming in at a cool $8,000 (€7,450) – just a little pricey for us at eBuzz Towers!Star Wars 02 R2D2 Minifridge


A sure contender for coolest toy in the history of recorded time is Sphero’s cute little ball droid. We expect the B88 will be just like gold dust this Christmas, with Teletubbie-like queuing, haggling and outright theft.

Vacuum Cleaner

Because nothing says Star Wars fan like having your very own vaguely Darth Vader-specific “cleaning stick”.

Hand Wash

But why limit yourself to merely cleaning your carpets and floored surfaces? You can also clean your hands, with these hand washers, “of palmed size”.

Vader Waffle makers

Let’s not stop at cleaning products, why not get your kitchen decked out with some truly evil waffles.


Death Star Wafflemakers

Or some truly, truly evil waffles.


Business card holders

Or perhaps you practice your evil in the boardroom, in which case these natty business card holders are your only man.


Boiled egg shapers

If I have to explain why these boiled egg shapers are essential then there’s no hope for you in civilised society.

Kylo Ren Lightsaber Chopsticks

And last, but not least, why not celebrate the release of the new movie by holding these chopsticks in your hand, immortalising Kylo Ren’s new lightsaber design each and every time you clumsily pick up some noodles.

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.
