While the Darth Vader Lunch Box may be a must-have accessory for any Star Wars fan’s collection of Darth Vader toys (I’m looking at you, Chris Pirillo), it also serves a function that’s practical no matter where you find yourself in the Galaxy: it keeps your lunch morsels an appropriate temperature for maximum edibility.
And the one-time purchase of a Darth Vader Lunch Box will eliminate the need for those tired, one-use paper lunch bags, letting you keep those cool credits you won at last night’s sabacc game right there in your pocket.
This is also a win for the environmentally friendly who want to help us conquer resource overuse — since, unlike our friends in a galaxy far, far away, we’ve got just the one planet on which to live, work, play, and have lunch. The Darth Vader Lunch Box won’t single-handedly conquer the ravages of climate change (just ask Luke), but it is a good small step forward.
Is That James Earl Jones’ Voice Beckoning You to Join Him for a Snack (and to Rule the Galaxy)?
In the original Star Wars trilogy, James Earl Jones provided the famous voice of Darth Vader and it was his booming vocal prowess that added character and dimension to the now-classic space villain. This is made all the more noteworthy by the fact that James Earl Jones overcame a severe case of stuttering as a youth — making him an excellent role model for any child who similarly struggles to conquer the difficulties of speech impediment.
Here are some of the impressive — most impressive — qualities of the Darth Vader Lunch Box:
- Made by Thermos, a company that’s been keeping our lunches hot or cold — depending — for a century.
- A push of the button lets you hear Vader’s signature breathing.
- It’s 100% PVC free.
- Closed cell polyethylene foam insulation keeps inside temperature (and your food!) stable.
- It opens with a zipper and has a comfortable handle.
The Darth Vader Lunch Box Makes a Great Gift
A perfect gift for kids five and up (way up, considering that a lot of people who saw Star Wars for its first run in theaters as kids are now in their late 30s and early 40s), the Darth Vader Lunch Box will bring a smile to the face of Star Wars collectors and lunch enthusiasts, alike. Whether this is used as a carrying case for geeky goods or precious peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, it’s designed to get its contents from one place to another safely and in sleek style.
After all, it’s hard to be a Vader hater when he’s kind enough to carry around your stuff all day long.
