Inspired by Jim's portrait of a Star Wars collection, a friend sent in a link to these fabulous little lamps that would make an excellent addition to any fan's home. Though it is a bit strange that they manage to somehow make these Star Wars villains look cute, there is something truly appealing about the shape that makes these lamps work.
Measuring 15" high, each lamp features an LED alarm clock as well as an audio input and speaker for mp3 playback. Though they are not yet available in stores, you can pre-order them now for shipping in September. Any one of these character lamps would perk up a dorm room or home office to say nothing of a kids room. At $49.99 per lamp at The Star Wars Shop, a collection may be out of the question, but darn if the idea isn't appealing.
