Lego joined forces with Star Wars in 1999 and released their first movie-themed play sets. Since then, fans of the bricks and the Lucasfilm saga were more than ecstatic – they were hooked! Today, young and old minds alike enjoy reliving the galactic adventure with every Star Wars Lego building kit, featuring unforgettable characters from the film. Even better, Lego takes the madness a step further with these Minifigure alarm clocks.
Officially licensed by Lego, these snooze busters come as Master Yoda, and the troubled young man Anakin Skywalker. Each retailing for about $40.00, the alarm clocks are ideal gifts for children ages six and above. Okay, grown-ups are Star Wars junkies, too, aren’t they? Any Lego or Star Wars fanatic will surely appreciate getting these Minifigure Jedi knights as a present.
Each Lego Minifigure clock stands 17.5 centimeters tall, more than five times the height of your average Lego Man. At the front of the figure is the LCD, where the current time and alarm time can be viewed. The easy to use alarm clock controls are located at the back of each figure.
By pressing down on your Minifigure Jedi’s head, you activate the LCD backlight. As the alarm sounds, the head also acts as the snooze button. The Lego alarm clock is even poseable, as you can move the arms and legs just like the regular Lego Minifigure. Have your Star Wars alarm clock stand by next to your bed, or have him sit down on your work desk. Either way, it’s a cool collectible that is also functional, especially when you have trouble getting up in the morning.
If the good guys aren’t your thing, then check out the Sith as Lego Minifigure alarm clocks. You can have Darth Vader or a Storm Trooper wake you up every day. But if you feel like going back to the Industrial Revolution, then try this Thomas Edison-inspired alarm clock for size.
