If you’re a Star Wars fan, you MUST immediately head over to the Star Wars Shop and place your order for one of these Jawa garden gnomes.
Designed as a good luck charm for your garden, these hand-painted, foot-tall mini Jawa lawn ornaments sell for $35 (USD) each and are the perfect guardian for your front yard.
Of course, they might start scavenging for electronic parts and droids around your house if you don’t keep an careful eye on them.
While the little guys amber eyes look like they’re illuminated in the photo above, I think it’s just a reflection. But I plan on modding mine with solar-powered LED eyeballs to achieve a similar effect. Garden Jawas are available for pre-order now, and start shipping in January 2010, so you’ll have yours in plenty of time for spring flowers. Or is it already springtime on Tatooine? I always figured those twin suns wreaked havoc on the growing calendar.
The Travelocity roaming gnome is so yesterday’s news.
