The Darth Vader Phone. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you’ve got to admit that the Star Wars franchise – and boy is it a franchise – really does mean business. It never lets up, does it? And here’s the latest in the collection. A normal (!) home phone which plays the Imperial Death March every time a call comes in. Da-da-de-da-da-de-da-da-de-dum. Personally I’d hook it up to a Magic Ringtone and have it play Judy Garland instead, but what do I know? £19.96.
The helmet unit also features three sound effect buttons, producing realistic recreations of the saber swing, the Imperial March and of course, Darth’s famous heavy breathing. Let’s hope that’s the only heavy breathing you get on the phone… The Darth Vader Phone also features a standard ringer mode, ideal in case you have elderly relatives with weak hearts/bladders visiting.
