Star Wars fans across the galaxy, listen up! The coolness levels of your meals could become exponentially higher with the invention of one of the coolest toasters I've ever seen. Granted, that's a pretty low bar considering we still haven't invented the toasting knife from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

But I'll take what I can get when it comes to sci-fi themed kitchen appliances.

Instead of burning your toast to an inedible, charcoal-esque crisp, this toaster will burn it just enough to show all of your houseguests your favorite fandom. I give you, the Darth Vader toaster!

Eating toast will finally be the fun-filled, potentially romantic event it was always meant to be.

Say "goodbye forever" to the tragically laborious and wasteful task of scraping the burned bits from your morning meal:

I know what you might be thinking, this seems a bit insensitive given Anakin's past with burning things...

But it's okay! Vader seems pretty cool with it as long as said burning is done in a safe and controlled, lava-free environment.

While it seems like the dark side of the force has their hands on this magnificent toaster at the moment, for a mere $50 it can be yours. Okay, so $50 might sound like a lot for a toaster, but look at this toaster that isn't shaped like Darth Vader's helmet that costs twice as much!

What a poser. Based on my logic, you're practically saving money by buying the Star Wars one. Or not. I was never very good at finance.

For those of us who don't own the Darth Vader toaster, we will always live knowing that we could, but we didn't *weeps*. So someone, please buy this toaster from ThinkGeek and review your toasting experience in great detail so that I can live vicariously through you. Happy toasting, everyone!


What would you toast in this amazing toaster of the future (and yes, the future is now)?
