Star Wars Lightsaber Flashlight

This flashlight is a great novelty item, I wouldn’t recommend it as an emergency flashlight. This lightsaber was popular with the kids and also reviewers commented how it was a great addition to a Halloween costume.

The design is based on the Anankin Skywalkers flashlight and comes batteries included.

The LED blue light and sound effects give it a good resemblance to the one in the movie.

For R2-D2 fans this would make a great little gift. Just to make sure you realise while this is sold as a fridge it is more like a cooler. It holds 6 cans of soda and would be ideal for a recreation or TV room where you can have a few ready and cooled while you are watching your favorite Star Wars movie. It can be plugged in to a standard wall socket or into a 12V car socket, this can be useful for those on the go or for camping or RVing. Another nice feature is that it has a warming function so if you have leftovers you want to warm up this is ideal.

These would make good stocking fillers

I have dozens of flash drives and I can never tell them about so spend ages trying to find which files are on which drive.

My favorites are the stormtrooper that is revealed to be Luke Skywalker in disguise when you pull the lid off and the Darth Vader and Bobba Fett ones. Star Wars fans will want to collect the set.
