Darth Vader Phone Home

Darth Vader Phone

When I was looking for Darth Vader pics (I know, what an awesome photoshop job), I ran across this little beauty. The Darth Vader Telephone! You too can have a direct line to evil Sith Lords. Call up Ewoks. Put Alderaan on hold... permanently. The Darth Vader Phone, made by Kash 'N Gold, is not just a hunk of black plastic, but an annoying hunk of black plastic. What does the novelty phone do that's so annoying? The question is what doesn't this novelty phone do that's annoying.

This phone isn't for the Star Wars superfan, this phone is for someone who has given up trying to get laid. Check out the features of this Darth Helmeted Phone:

  • Darth Vader's head swivels when phone rings
  • Flashing lights
  • Imperial March ring tone
  • Additional Star Wars sound effects located on Darth Vader's chest (light sabers clash, mechanical respirator, Mom yelling to get out of the bathroom)

So, pretty much anytime someone calls, Lord Vader goes into a epileptic seizure. Which would never get annoying, especially if you receive multiple phone calls in a day. Although, if you own the Darth Vader Phone, you probably don't have to worry about that. In all seriousness, I would love to place a phone call through Darth Vader, just so I can tell whoever is lucky enough to receive my call where I'm calling from. However, the Vader Phone is out of production, so if you're lucky enough to find one on eBay, expect to pay $50 or so. I've seen it listed for over $200 though! That's an iPhone.

Jock's have Sports Illustrated football phones, us geeks have Darth Vader Phones, but either way someday our wives will throw them both away.
