‘Tis the season… and I’m not talking about Christmas! Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are upon us (starting TOMORROW!!), and some extra fun Star Wars themed merchandise is arriving along with them. And when that merchandise is food-related?! Well, that’s all the better!
Check out these cool R2-D2 and Darth Vader lunch bags I saw at Tatooine Traders (the store next to the Star Tours attraction in Hollywood Studios) and Writer’s Stop! I don’t remember these from last year, so while I’m not sure if they’re new, they are new to me…
Now, when I say “cool,” I do mean that I think they are neat, but these padded lunch totes are also thermal for keeping your food cold. Score.
But the best thing about them is that they have special effects!
I’m partial to the R2-D2 bag.
Part of that is because I love him, but also the effects are pretty great. When you press the indicated button on top of the bag, you suddenly hear R2’s signature beeps and boops… but, get this: his lights also flash!
The best part? You can order your own here!
Darth Vader’s helmet bag has no lighting effects, but when you press the button you hear the ominous “KHOOOOH (pause) KHOOOOH (pause) …” or however one might spell the sound of Darth Vader’s breathing… you get what I’m saying!
I can picture it now: “Thought you would offer me an uneven trade for my pepperoni Lunchables, did you?” (Press ominous breathing button.)
That’ll show ‘em 😉 .
They don’t come cheap — these lunch boxes are $29.95 each. But I suppose there is a price to pay for having the raddest lunch box in the cafeteria…or the office…or the GALAXY!
Happy Star Wars Weekends, everybody!
