Detailed replica hilt
You’d think that with all that high-tech hardware on show, Darth Vader would be waterproof. Well apparently not. Because our Bothan spies have uncovered the Star Wars Darth Vader Lightsaber Umbrella
propped up in his porch.
Forget oversized helmets and capes – this officially licensed
, 1.2m diameter brolly is the perfect way to stay dry, whether you’re a diabolical Sith Lord or not. Just grasp the iconic lightsaber handle at the first sign of rain and unfurl the 100% black nylon canopy (adding your own vhzzhhing, wuhmming sound effects if required).
The aluminium shaft
is anodised an iridescent red colour in tribute to Darth’s famous weapon. Sure, it may not glow and melt through blast doors, but it’s more than enough to command the attention of passers-by and fellow fans alike. And once you have their attention, the bold white emblem of the Galactic Empire
on the black canopy will let them know just where your loyalties lie.
But what if there isn’t a dark, sinister or evil bone in your body? Well what the heck – we're just as taken with the idea of Darth Vader skipping through the puddles, swinging on lampposts and tap-dancing with policemen. Brollies at the ready, there’ll be nothing to stop us this time.
