10. Wampa Rug
When Luke dukes it out with the giant Yeti-like Wampa creature in “The Empire Strikes Back,” the wannabe Jedi chops off the monster’s arm. So what happens to the rest of the big lug? We’d like to think he was turned into a rug. Editor’s Note: It doesn’t come with the life size Slave Leia seen in the pic.
ThinkGeek – $129.99
9. Chewbacca Bathrobe
Walk out of the shower in Wookiee style with the Chewbacca bathrobe. Princess Leia may think you look like a walking carpet, but you will be dry and cozy.

8. Tauntaun Sleeping Bag
Ever wondered what Luke felt like when he woke up in the gut of a tauntaun? Slimy, for sure. You’ll get a simulated experience with this one, sans the guts. Actually the intestines are printed on the interior.

7. Han Solo in Carbonite Crayons
These bootleg goodies are so geeky cool, we’re hoping Lucasfilm turns a blind eye. Shaped like Han in carbonite, each eight-pack comes with one red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown and black crayon. They’re made from Crayolas.

Fashion maestro Marc Ecko designed this flashy hoodie based on that heroic astromech droid. The robot controls are actually pockets. We’re bleeping and blooping over this one.

3. Chewbacca Messenger Bag
Originally spotted at Comic-Con. You’ll be the toast of Kashyyk with this bag. The strap looks like a bandolier, and the bag itself is big enough to hold all of your bootleg copies of the “Star Wars Holiday Special” on DVD.

BONUS: C-3PO Tape Dispenser
In our interview, Anthony Daniels mentioned that this is one of the few pieces of “Star Wars” memorabilia that he owns and it’s no wonder why. This is really number 1 on this…and really any list.
