Glowbar – because sometimes we need to pry in the dark

Glowbar - the Glow-in-the-dark Crowbar

do you feel the insatiable need to pry in the dark? yes? good, then i have a perfect tool for you: the Glowbar Classic. no. that’s not a typo, in fact, it is very aptly named as this is a Crowbar that glows in the dark. forged from high-carbon steel for extra strength, this wrecking bar is coated with hyper-phosphorescent powder coating that gives it a glow that is said to be “ten times brighter than conventional glow-in-the-dark items.” though i still can’t comprehend why would anyone need a crowbar that glows in the dark. or perhaps, the main purpose of its glow-in-the-dark function is for an easier location of the crowbar in the dark shed? come to think of it, may be all tools should have glow-in-the-dark coating so we can save a lightbulb for the tool shed. no? anyway, the Glowbar Classic cost $79.99 a pop. novelty or functional, you be the judge. another look after the break.

if Anakin Skywalker were to have a candlelight dinner with some chicks from a galaxy, far, far away or Padme Amidala, he would probably use his lightsaber to give the dinner a more romantic ambience. we know the fact that lightsaber isn’t in our checklist, so this Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick holder should be suffice for us. this solid metal candlestick holder is a precise scaled down re-creation of Lord Vader’s blade casted in zinc-alloy and accented with chrome details. the only let down is the circular plate that might mar the otherwise authentic look but thankfully, it can be unscrewed and ready for battle with any Jedi who attempts to disrupt your sweet candlelight dinner with your beloved Padme.

if Jabba the Hutt were to produce one souvenir for its Tatooine crime empire’s gift shop, the Star Wars Han Solo Carbonite Chocolate would be it. the memorable scene of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) sealed in carbonite for delivery to Jabba the Hutt has inspired many novel products such as USB flash drive and unofficial coffee table, and now Han Solo in Carbonite exists as a gourmet dark chocolate too, allowing Star Wars fans to savor it, literally. though, we have not tasted carbonite but our bet is, this dark chocolate will definitely taste better than carbonite. the wonderful part is, this is an officially licensed Star Wars edible treat brought to you by the dudes over at Think Geek. i know what you are thinking, this is a real edible chocolate and not the usual gadgets and electronics that you have come to expect from Think Geek.
