A word of advice, nerdy friends: these ThinkGeek-exclusive and original STAR WARS Planetary Glass Sets are available in a very limited release, so place your orders while they last.
For all the emphasis the original trilogy places on its deeply developed characters, we can’t help but feel that the actual worlds they inhabit never quite get their due. Well, for those who nab these few officially licensed six-glass packages hitting ThinkGeek just in time for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS to at last hit theaters everywhere on Dec. 18, these essential worlds in a galaxy far, far away get to take center-stage.
In addition to the ever-iconic Death Star, these ornately designed 10 oz. glasses replicate the orbital views of Dagobah, Hoth, Tatooine, the forest moon of Endor and ill-fated Alderaan. Nice touch, by the way, rendering the Alderaan tribute glass as appearing shattered. Poignant choice, indeed.
That being said, handle the STAR WARS Planetary Glasses with caution. The decoration is achieved by high-temperature heat wrapping, making them neither microwave nor dishwasher safe.
