Star Wars Trash Compactor Bookends Provide The Perfect Literary Pun
I don’t know about you, but the first thing I thought when I saw these Star Wars Trash Compactor Bookends was that they would be great for holding your worst set of books. Think about it, all of your wife or husband’s trashy romance novels shoved between two trash compactor bookends. See what we did there? I know you did, and that is exactly what what makes these bookends so appealing. It also helps that they are intricately detailed Star Wars figures from an iconic scene in the movie, though.
As you likely already know, the scene is from the very first movie when the rescue of Princess Leia takes a turn for the worst. Left with no other options, they throw themselves down the garbage chute. Then they get attacked by a garbage squid and the compactor walls activate. While the detail is all there, the book ends thankfully don’t smell of refuse. They are constructed from high quality polystone and each one is hand painted. If you are thinking to yourself that the phrase “hand pained” means “very expensive,” then you are right on the money. This officially licensed Lucasfilm collectible comes in at $199.99. Serious fans only need apply, here. Still, I won’t deny that I would be interested in picking up a set of these, if only to get a chuckle out of visitors to my home.
There is never any shortage of Star Wars merchandise out there, but we have featured a few great ones here on Gadgethim. This 4-pack of Star Wars glasses are great for any fan of the original movies, for example. You can also help your child choose to be a Jedi or Sith with this mini lightsaber dark side detector. That is a fancy name for an afternoon full of lightstaber construction and fun.
