George Lucas knows how to milk his franchise. It could be argued that he is better at selling to merchandisers than he is at making movies. The latest bit of Star Wars merchandise is this GPS out of Japan.
Start it up and you’ll hear the orchestral theme music along with voice guidance performed by the original Japanese VO actors (Darth Vader and C-3P0). The gadget is a 5-inch LCD mount that has a mode selection option to let users choose between the “Empire” or the “Rebels”.
There are also 20 different custom vehicle indicator icons. And this unit also doubles as a OneSeg TV tuner and can even be used as a standalone set. You can buy it now for 39,800Yen (US$507).
