Since it was released in 1977, Star Wars became an American epic, possessing a longevity only a handful of movies manage to achieve and crafting the very essence of the term a ‘classic’. Naturally such a blockbuster has been followed with a steady string of memorabilia, intensifying in sophistication and innovation with each passing decade. So recognisable is the Star Wars franchise, that when Darth Vader himself marched in to this year’s CES, nobody blinked an eyelid. With such an immense amount of toys, gadgets and memorabilia dedicated to the timeless classic, we thought the Star Wars fans amongst our readers may want to learn of some of the best gadgets available dedicated to their unhealthy obsession.
