15 Out-of-This-World 'Star Wars' Products You've Got to See (PHOTOS)

Let's get real: One of the best parts about getting a new 'Star Wars' movie (The Force Awakens, which opens December 18) is the merch. The film franchise has always inspired great swag, and the latest offerings do not disappoint.

Here are 15 cool products that any real fan or even casual observer will want to acquire faster than the Millennium Falcon can make the Kessel Run (so, in less than 12 parsecs, then) -- from five-inch heels to a Princess Leia pendant. May the force be with you. And by force, we mean your wallet.

    R2-D2 is sooo last season. The Force Awakens's new droid, BB-8, has curvy lines that transform into a cute ready-to-wear party dress.

    For the fangirl whose idea of the perfect casual Friday accessories are fear and intimidation.


  • Princess Leia and Han Solo Bathroom Hand Towels

    Sometimes a princess's perfect mate isn't the obvious choice. It's the smart-aleck smuggler who drives a Millennium Falcon and hangs out with a dude that's all hair. Celebrate that -- with matching hand towels.

    Ten bucks says that the most popular after-work drink tumbler in your new Star Wars planetary glassware set will be the Death Star. Just a hunch.

    If you have more than three knife scars on your fingers and you ever use a blowtorch and liquid nitrogen in your cooking, this apron modeled after Darth Vader's uniform may be for you.

    Buy two: one to enjoy now, another to keep in the original packaging until you can sell it for $500 on eBay in 50 years. Bonus: The mug, which holds 12 ounces and bears the likeness of Star Wars's feared bounty hunter, has the quote "He's no good to me dead" on the opposite side. For whenever you need to be reminded.

  • Star Wars R2-D2 Trash Can

    Let's face it: Trash cans are ugly and boring ... unless it's an incredibly detailed replica of R2-D2 imported from Japan, whose dome flips open when you press the foot pedal. Then it's a super-cute conversation piece that can double as a wine bucket at parties.

  • Skywalker Star Wars Heels

    This kick-ass platform shoe has everything, and then some -- because it has a light-up lightsaber for a heel, and a sole like a conveyor belt, AND a faux-snakeskin print. Pretty cool.

  • Princess Leia Bobblehead

    This beautifully stylized bobblehead, complete with flowy robe, spiky eyelashes, and enormous hair buns, is a desktop must have. Princess Leia products are less common than you'd think, considering she's the original trilogy's only female character of note. Oh, wait.  

  • Star Wars Chewbacca Womens Slippers

    Makes sense that the warmest and fuzziest of Star Wars characters, Chewbacca, would make for the toastiest slippers. Our only gripe: They don't roar.

  • Princess Leia Portrait Pendant Necklace

    Not surprisingly, craft Mecca and not-so-secret pop-culture-nerd hideout Etsy features thousands of handmade items inspired by Star Wars. Among them is this lovely glass cabochon pendant featuring a post–hair buns Princess Leia. Ladies, this is how to geek and still look classy.

  • Exclusive Star Wars R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set

    Precise and helpful -- that was R2-D2 to a T. So it makes sense that the droid would make a great chef's assistant, as a set of measuring cups that you take apart. Bleep.

    The world's most menacing ice cubes ever invented, featuring bad guys (a Stormtrooper and Darth Vader) and weapons of war (Star Destroyer ship and AT-AT armored transporter). How refreshing!

    This gold-tone C-3PO is the flashiest of USB flash drives. 

  • Lightsaber Chopstick

    Everything you want in a chopstick: sleek design and the ability to signal whether you are with Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance (choose the set that lights up blue) or Darth Vader and the Dark Side (choose the set that lights up red).
