WATTO'S EMPORIUM Weekly Top 3

PrintE-mail Written by Jack Bottomley

Welcome once again to the movie marketplace that is Watto’s Emporium, which rounds up some of the best merch that we found across the online galaxy, or in this instance, some of the best merch from a galaxy far, far, away. Yes indeed, the merchandising madness is brewing and about to run wild ahead of this December’s release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and people have been frantically posting news on all the new Star Wars merch about to fill shelves and stockings this fall. So in occasion of this awakening, Watto’s Emporium this week looks back and ahead for a Star Wars themed round-up…


3. Star Wars Boba Fett Belt Buckle (beltsbucklestees.com, £15)

Just as we are all assessing who will be the next big iconic character in the Star Wars universe, over at beltsbucklestees.com you can celebrate one of the beloved characters from the original trilogy. First introduced as a silent but deadly side character in The Empire Strikes Back, bounty hunter Boba Fett has developed a following as feverish as the films themselves. So to show how big a fan of the Fett you are, this neat Boba Fett helmet belt buckle ought to do the trick. Which is lucky because we doubt the Empire would compensate you if it failed to impress.

 

 

2. Star Wars Tree Decorations (etsy.com, £5)

There are big companies that have made a Star Destroyer sized stack of cash out of Star Wars merch but sometimes you have to look wider to find some real gems. As is the case here with these great Star Wars Tree Decorations by Kitten Poker Creations, which are available over at Etsy. The clear ornaments are perfect for Christmas and will compliment the fact that Star Wars is going to dominant the holiday season! Making up the clear acrylic decorations are The Rebel Alliance and Imperial logos, The Death Star and an incredibly detailed Millennium Falcon. Our feelings on these decorations are most definitely clear.


 

1. Star Wars Episode VII T-Shirts (Pre-Order) (alltheheroes.co.uk, £11.75 each)

Over the years many of you may have gathered some right varied gear from Darth Vader toasters to lightsaber chopsticks but when it comes down to it, who doesn’t love a good shirt? Well over at alltheheroes.co.uk, the force is strong with this new batch of pre-orders set for an October 5th release. Making up the range are the traditional The Force Awakens logo shirt, the military inspired Troop Leader shirt and 3 differently designed shirts all showing off The Force Awakens’ cross-saber wielding and masked menace that is Kylo Ren- our personal favourite is that red shirt. The anticipation is rising, so all you long-time Star Wars fans out there can get ready to lose yourself in this universe once again and, like Han, proudly proclaim …”we’re home”.
