Lightsabres to illuminate Christmas dinner

Romantic lighting enjoy you will

Security for virtualized datacentres

Here's a geek treat that'll leave Star Wars collectors feeling more at home than an Ewok in a treetop. Behold, the Lightsabre Candlestick from ThinkGeek.

ThinkGeek's Star Wars Lightsabre Candlestick

This licensed scaled reproduction of a lightsabre measures 21cm long and comes with three 25cm non-drip red candles.

Of course, you can always use your own coloured candles too, turning it Skywalker blue, Yoda green or Samuel L Jackson purple, but clearly the design here is based on Darth Vader's mighty weapon.

Therefore, even when the Empire strikes a match and fires this badboy up, there'll still be a darkside to every table. Badum tish.

The Lighstabre Candlesticks go on sale this December, just in time for a Jedi-tastic Christmas. They're exclusively manufactured for and by ThinkGeek and cost $40 (£26) each. ®
