Darth Vader Stress Toy
There is a dirty little secret amongst the Stormtroopers on the Death Star. One day, when Vader was off-site at a big important meeting with the Emperor, they all pooled their credits and bought a boxload of Vader Head Stress Balls. Now, when they’re feeling the Force-pinch of stress, they can take it out on Vader’s head… as long as he’s not watching.
You may not have a Sith Lord for a boss, but we’ll bet you’ve got some stress in your life. Take it out on Vader, here. He’s made of squishy rubbery material and is very satisfying to squeeze. Should you be Force adept, go ahead and squish him with the Force!

- Officially licensed Star Wars collectible
- Materials: Rubbery squishy
- Dimensions: About the size of a baseball

USB 7 Port Hub with Power Switches
Having a lot of hubs is great – you can plug in all of your fun gadgets, even your USB Pet Rock, and they’ll be juiced up and ready to go when you need them. But what about those USB devices that you don’t want to have on 24/7? What if the lights from your USB Christmas Tree are giving you a migraine? What if your USB Alien has stuck out his inner mouth one too many times today? You could unplug them, we suppose. But if you’re anything like us, you have your hub tucked back somewhere out of the way. And by out of the way, we mean, inconvenient to get to regularly for plugging and unplugging.
This hub is the perfect solution. It has seven ports and seven power switches, enabling you to turn your USB gadgets on and off without unplugging them. Just a flick of a switch and you can turn off your Big Chap before he drives you crazy, or cut off the juice once your iPod is fully charged. It even has over current detection and protection to keep your devices safe while they’re plugged in.

Skulls. Everybody has one. Some have two or more! Those lucky devils get to wander around fancy dress parties, chatting up girls and saying, “Hey doll, is this guy boring you? Why don’t you talk to me instead? I’m from a different planet.” Some skulls are enormous, some are quite small, and some have USB 2.0 connectivity.
I’m guessing yours doesn’t? Well, waste no time and upgrade your skull today! No, put down that power-drill. This isn’t some bizarre trepanning experiment! Here – just take this skull, instead! Sure, it’s made out of resin, and isn’t a real skull, but it’s the look you’re going for, right?
