I was wondering aimlessly around Target yesterday and found a set of four glasses from TESB. One of the glasses had Vader and a stormtrooper on it. I got these for $19.99.
Also saw a lunch box in the shape of vader's helmet. The outer casing was hard so that a person's lunch would not get squished. Can't remember how much it retailed for though.

Hey Master_M_M, thanks! I have no idea if there's a Boba bottle opener. The Vader opener was a recent birthday gift so I didn't buy it. The package said Hallmark so maybe it's a Hallmark exclusive? I was there a couple of days ago and they didn't even have the Vader anymore.

There's a few Unmasked Vader sketch cards from the new Galactic Files card series up on Ebay. They fit right into my Sebastian Shaw/ Anakin-Vader focus, but they're a little pricey. I'm already of the opinion that sketch card prices are out of control as they are. Hrm...

I don't have pics but, take a stroll around Target's valentine section. They have two types of Vader candy jars, red and black. They also have Vader mugs, candy tins, etc. As of 2/6/13 they were all on sale.

Broke down and ordered Koto's new Vader/ Return of Anakin 1:10 figure. Got some great Shaw/ Anakin items the last few months and this fits right into it.

Still can't find the Junk Food brand tshirt that has the Jedi spirits on it in adult size. :\

I got a loose/complete Vintage Vader Lightswitcheroo the other day, and installed it on the lightswitch in my collection room. It's a pretty cool piece; his nose becomes the light switch and when the light is on a red gel comes up in front of his eyes.

I had that Vader switchplate when I was a kid. The eyes was suppose to glow in the dark. My brother had the C-3P0 light switch.

I don't give a crap about the Star Tots, convention gimmick. But I really want the ROTJ Anakin Tot available at Celebration Europe. Gonna wait this one out. Damn character focus!

Went ahead and pre-ordered the upcoming Sideshow 1:6 Vader. Might still cancel, but was on the fence do to the likeness on Anakin being off. Seeing some in-hand pics helped, as Sideshow's production mood lighting was not doing it for me.

Hello all! I have this promotional stand from the first DVD rlease of Star Wars on DVD and wondered if it had any value to it? I'm not sure I've even managed to attach the photo to this but it is in my gallery. Would love any info on it, thanks!

Wherever C3PO goes
Just to give everyone a heads up - there are two new Vader TENUGUI that have been released. Personally, I love Japanese art (in general), and I think the SW editions are brilliantly executed.

"Darth Vader on Fire"


"Darth Vader - Fireworks"


Here is the link to Strapya World for the entire SW line of TENUGUI:
http://www.strapya-world.com/categories/2331_3177_4548.html

These are 1,480jpn (18.00usd), and I've never had a single problem ordering from Strapya World.

Tenugui
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A typical Kendo-style Tenugui

A Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton.

It is typically about 35 by 90 centimeters in size, plain weaved and is almost always printed with some pattern.

It can be used for anything a towel could be used for - as a washcloth, dishcloth, headband, souvenir or decoration. Towels made from terry cloth have replaced many of its use in the household. However tenugui is still popular as a souvenir, decoration and as a head covering in Kendo.

A tenugui frequently appears in anime and manga as a prop during a sentō scene.
A bit late to the party as usual...
Was browsing this thread & learned something new today... interesting.
