Shut Up and Take My Money: Star Wars Talking Alarm Clocks
Forget the alarm clock that forces you to get out of bed. I want to wake up to the sweet sound of Chewbacca screaming in Shyriiwook, the language of the Wookiees. Sold on Firebox, these old school alarm clocks will get you up in the morning by playing lines from the three Star Wars movies that are actually worth watching.
Depending on the alarm clock, you will be able to hear a Stormtooper barking at you, C-3PO and R2-D2 greeting you or Chewbacca’s guttural conversation skills. The clocks have been designed using the classic “twin-bell” look that was popular in decades past. However, the bells are only for decoration and have been painted or covered to reflect the Star Wars character.
Sound effects built into each alarm clock include:
- C-3PO & R2-D2: ”Good Morning,” “Here we go again,” “Beep blip tweek beep bip beeep”
- Chewbacca: ”Grrrrfffff,” “Argggghhhhh,” “Mrrrranh”
- Stormtrooper: ”It’s them, blast them!”, “Do you know what’s going on?”, “Maybe it’s another drill?”, “Open the blast doors”, “Peeeew, Peeeeeew, Peeeeeew”
The alarm clocks run on three AA batteries and are small enough to sit on a standard bedside table. Each clock retails for £10.99 (about $17). 1,138 additional cool points are awarded to those who purchase a matching Star Wars iPhone 5 case to go with their clock.
