Star Wars USB sticks: choose your favourite

The USB drives are available as one of four characters, including Register Hardware’s personal favourite, Darth Vader. The head of each character pops off to reveal a USB connector and Star Wars content is pre-loaded onto every stick.

Each stick arrives in a plastic 'force-field'

Each one measures just over 2in and users can choose a storage capacity ranging from 1GB up to 4GB.

The Star Wars USB memory stick range is available now from Firebox, with prices ranging from £30 (€45/$60) for a 1GB stick to £50 (€65/$100) for a 4GB character.

May the force be with you...
