The best gifts for the Darth Vader aficionado in your life this holiday season are a lot different than the merchandise that played such a big role in turning a late 1970’s sci-fi movie into the cultural phenomenon known as Star Wars. While most of these things could be classified as “toys” in the larger sense, since they are playful and fun, they’re not toys for kids or collecting adults. They also all have a sense of irony and play on the universally recognized evil lord and his famous lines, prices range from $4 to $900.
1. Lego Darth Vader 4GB USB Memory Stick - $40 (plus shipping)

2. Darth Vader Flexible Spatula - $14 (free shipping until 12/4)
This helmet shaped spatula is one of best gifts you can give a Star Wars fan simply for the absurdity of it. Since it’s from Williams-Sonoma you know it’s gonna be top quality and discount free.
3. Darth Vader Supreme Edition Costume - $900 (lightsaber not included)
Don’t let this customer submitted picture fool you, this is the “Supreme” Edition Darth Vader costume with armor pieces molded from the originals at LucasArts. Reviews aren’t great, but maybe that’s why they dropped the price from the original $1500.
