Celebrate the Holidays With Festive Star Wars Nutcrackers

Original image
ThinkGeek

This holiday season, crack open those fire-roasted chestnuts with cinematic style. You may not have a lightsaber handy to slice through your shelled snack of choice, but these Star Wars-themed nutcrackers will do in a pinch.

Fans of the iconic franchise can choose from four different characters: Boba Fett, R2-D2, Darth Vader, and a Storm Trooper. Each officially licensed cracker is carved from wood and sits on a fancy base that contains the character's name for out-of-touch friends.

The Boba Fett nutcracker stands at 10 inches tall and comes with a soft, cloth cape. R2-D2 is seven inches tall and cracks nuts with its dome. Darth Vader is the tallest of the nutcrackers and stands at 11.6 inches; unlike Boba Fett, his cape is made of wood. Finally, the Stormtrooper is 11.5 inches tall and wields a blaster ("perfect for the nutcracker collector who prefers blasters to ballet").

All the nutcrackers are designed by Kurt Adler. You can check out the collection on ThinkGeek.
