From high-tech projector clocks to old school alarm clocks and everything in between, there are more Star Wars time pieces available on the web than you might expect.
Whether you want digital Star Wars clocks or something more old fashioned, the web is full of Lucas-inspired bounty. Read on to read some reviews about some of these interesting gift ideas.
Darth Vader Wall Clock
Okay, so the leader of the Empire and all around bad dude Darth Vader probably didn't spend a lot of time hanging out on walls inside the Death Star. That doesn't mean that this Star Wars analog wall clock isn't awesome. Fans of the series will enjoy this expertly crafted Darth Vader clock. This clock features light up eyes, the eerie Darth Vader breathing that will make you think you're being hunted through the Cloud City every hour, on the hour, and a matte finish that will have the Sith Lord sparkling in the sun,
Running on batteries, this clock can go anywhere. Available on Amazon, this cool gift idea is in limited supply. Great for both kids and adults, this is the only way for a true ruler of the Empire to tell the time. If you have a Star Wars geek in your life who you just can't find the right gift for, consider the Darth Vader clock. Or else they might force choke you.
LEGO Star Wars Alarm Clock
Now this one is really cool. LEGO and Star Wars have been like Peanut Butter and Jelly the past few years and this really exemplifies how deep the relationship goes. So, okay: this Star Wars alarm clock has Chewbacca and a Storm Trooper duking out. And they're LEGO figures. And a gun turret to shoot from. That's great, but it gets better.
You'll need these LEGO figurines because the clock itself is also a working LEGO building block. That's right. As if telling time and waking you up in the morning wasn't enough, the LEGO Star Wars alarm clock can be built into a LEGO castles or whatever creation you're dreaming up.
For kids (or adults) who are big fans of LEGO toys, I can't recommend this item enough. It is a really creative way to incorporate LEGO play time in with a standard licensed alarm clock. Pick it up for yourself or make it into a gift the recipient will never forget.
R2D2 Projector Alarm Clock
Remember when Luke picked up R2D2 from the bazaar and saw an awesome holographic message from Princess Leia? Well, now you can relive that every morning when you wake up. This digital Star Wars clock will beam the time directly onto a nearby surface, making sure it is seen by everyone, who will surely be suitably impressed.
Of course, this isn't always as useful when the room is bright, That's why the R2D2 alarm clock also features a conventional digital clock on the face. This projection clock will be perfect for college students, young kids, and anyone who wants to be the universes "only hope."
R2 is powered by batteries, so make sure you have some on hand and is suitable for Star Wars fans of any age.
Darth Vader Clock Radio
It seems that Darth is particularly popular in clock form. And why not? His iconic mask makes for a great center piece that anyone can immediately recognize. This AM/FM clock radio features the controls directly over the infamous mouthpiece of this intergalactic terror.
Featuring a digital display inside of Darth's eyes, this clock will look great on any nightstand, bedside table, or desk. Plus, there's no better way to wake up fast than the sound of a Sith master breathing down your neck.
Vintage Star Wars Clocks
New Star Wars clocks are cool, but for dedicated Star Wars collectors, it is the Vintage Star Wars clocks that are the real prize. The best place to find vintage Star Wars clocks is through eBay: there's a constant stream of great new items being rediscovered there everyday.
