We did not get a new trailer at the D23 Disney fair, but at least the first poster was released on “Star Wars 9: The Rise of Skywalker” And those who doubted after the first trailer, because there is only the nasty laugh of the Emperor to be heared. Which can now perhaps convince through the poster of the surprise return of the largest of all “Star Wars” villains: The Emperor.
Ever since the “Episode 9” trailer, fans are puzzling over how the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid) is supposed to come back, when he was thrown into the Death Star Bay by Darth Vader in “Star Wars 6”, where he was defeated. Based on the canon, we have developed our own, long, nerdy theory, in which Darth Vader’s mask has a central function:
Darth Vader’s mask! So Palpatine could come back in “Star Wars 9” Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo (Adam Driver) will make the final duel in “Star Wars 9”. The poster will be a bit like the Emperor is pleased. The movie takes place a good year after “Star Wars 8: The Last Jedi”, the Resistance is in the First Order Guerrilla Warfare – and when it’s over, the story of the Skywalker family will also be over. In cinemas, Star Wars will not continue until 2022, when the first, as yet unknown film from the trilogy of the “Game Of Thrones” -maker begins.
Until then, everything is set for the Disney + streaming service at Disney. The first, the bounty hunter series “The Mandalorian” starts in November 2019 in the US and in early 2020 in Germany. This is followed by an agent series that plays before “Rogue One” – and then a series about nobody lesser than fan favorite Obi-Wan Kenobi, played again by Ewan McGregor! This series has more potential than one or the other might think.
We passed by the newly opened Tchibo Shop in the Dubai Mall today. Tchibo is a German Coffee Shop that as well sells a lot of other items aside from their coffee. While walking though there I found a Darth Vader USB Stick with 8GB for 49AED.
It comes in a Tchibo packing so I thought it cannot be original but bought it nevertheless as I thought it is cool. Removing the Tchibo package it turned out that this is one of the ones build by Tribe. The original Tribe Box is still below the Tchibo Box! This one is sold on Amazon for 26$. So the 49AED are a bargain! The also got the one of Yoda but I did not get it. Had I known these are the ones from Tribe I would…
Come to the Dark Side because we have cookies, and they’re kept in the Darth Vader Cookie Jar, fighting off your noble efforts of dieting with the awesome might of the Force.
This officially-licensed cookie jar looks just like the Dark Lord of the Sith’s helmet, except it doesn’t have an old, decrepit-looking Anakin Skywalker inside it. It’s also air-tight because stale cookies can make people grumpy and nobody wants a Jedi seduced by the Dark Side to be grumpy. Unfortunately, there’s no raspy breathing because nothing would beat munching on cookies while listening to Vader breathe. (LINK)
Come to the Dark Side. We have toast, and the Darth Vader Toaster will remind you of who’s in charge as you munch on the breakfast of Imperial officers everywhere… or at least in a galaxy far, far away.
This Darth Vader-shaped toaster used the power of the Force (electricity) to transform regular bread into delicious toast, complete with the Star Wars logo on one side and a picture of the Dark Lord of the Sith on the other. Don’t adjust the setting too far on the lighter side of toasting, though, or Vader might start to wonder where your true allegiance lies, and that could lead to him toasting your insides with his lightsaber…
You can get the ultimate Toaster for 50$ over here (LINK)
It’s bedtime in the Star Wars galaxy, and Darth Vader’s parenting skills are tested anew in this delightful follow-up to the breakout New York Times bestsellers Darth Vader™ and Son and Vader’s™ Little Princess. In this Episode, the Sith Lord must soothe his rambunctious twins, Luke and Leia—who are not ready to sleep and who insist on a story. As Vader reads, the book looks in on favorite creatures, droids, and characters, such as Yoda, R2-D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Admiral Ackbar, Boba Fett, and many others as they tuck in, yawn, and settle down to dream. As ever, Jeffrey Brown’s charming illustrations and humor glow throughout, playing on children’s book conventions to enchant adults and kids alike. (LINK)
Darth Vader loves nothing more than a grilled weenie, and the brand he likes best is Coruscant National (hey, they answer to a higher power: the Emperor). When Vader grills, he insists on using his favorite BBQ fork. You know, the one that looks like his lightsaber hilt? The Star Wars Darth Vader Lightsaber BBQ Fork.
The Star Wars Darth Vader Lightsaber BBQ Fork is a perfect blend of summer tools and Star Wars. The hilt looks just like Vader’s saber hilt, but it’s scaled down a little bit to better fit in your hand.
I had been to the Toy Store in the Dubai Mall the other day and have seen there this Star Wars Action Figures. This is 78cm high and comes in at a 300AED price tag, which is reasonable.
Best of all, Darth Vader speaks! Press the green button and he speaks the famous Darth Vader phrases like “The force is strong with this one” and ” You don’t know the power of the dark side”. There are also other sounds from the movie. The others eventually as well but I did not try…
The Dark Lord of Spice demands you put more pepper on your penne arrabbiata. In fact, you should put more pepper on everything! Black pepper, of course. But to balance it out, perhaps a tiny sprinkle of salt. That is, if you can get the salt to hit your food.
Usually we don’t get excited about salt & pepper shakers, but this set is anything but boring. Shaped like busts of Darth Vader (pepper) or a Stormtrooper (salt), let them spice up your kitchen decor. (LINK)
