I love Christmas, and I love Star Wars, so I’m always happy this time of year to combine them together. I have a slew of Star Wars Christmas decorations already in the house (for the last couple years), including ornaments, a Yoda tree topper, nut crackers, and snow globes. I’m always on the look out for more, however, and Merchoid’s new line of baubles certainly caught my eye. Pulling from the original trilogy films, these look like they’d fit nicely on just about any tree:
Merchoid has today revealed their range of officially licensed Star Wars Christmas Ornaments/Baubles based on characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. In total, four packs of Christmas Ornaments/Baubles have been released and each pack includes a set of six ornaments, featuring minimalist cartoon artwork inspired by characters from the films. Three of the four packs are based on the films A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, while one is themed around the planet destroying Death Star.
The ‘A New Hope’ pack features R2-D2, C-3P0, Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, Luke Skywaler and Princess Leia Christmas ornaments; The ‘Empire Strikes Back pack’ contains baubles based on Yoda, Chewbacca, Han Solo, a Snow Trooper, Boba Fett and Lando; Return of the Jedi contains Jabba the Hutt, Admiral Ackbar, Wicket, an Imperial Guard, Emperor Palpatine and a Scout Trooper. The ‘Imperial Death Star’ pack includes one Christmas ornament based on the Death Star and five Stormtrooper ornaments.
Creative Director Charanjeet Kondal says ‘Never mind what’s going to be sitting under the tree, this year Star Wars fans are going to be most excited about what’s ON the tree. The Force truly is strong with these Christmas ornaments.” The Star Wars Christmas Ornaments/Baubles are in stock now at Merchoid.com for £23.99/$31.99 (which includes free worldwide postage)
The Star Wars Christmas Ornaments/Baubles are manufactured by Numskull and produced under license from Disney.
What I like most, is how they seem like they’d fit perfect with any Christmas tree out there, regardless of a Star Wars theme or not. They’d fit in with your traditional ornaments, without looking out of place. If you’re interested in picking these up, be sure to check out their site!
