Star Wars Christmas Tree Lights

by JoHarrington

Most people make do with a classy line of white lights; others with the glorious festive burst of flashing, colored lights. But you're a geek and you know what you want.

There is lighting for the Space Age here, particularly if your brand of intergalactic festive wonder comes from a galaxy far, far away.

The 'Star Wars' figurine Christmas lights make everyone else's displays look boring. Colored bulbs or LED displays? Bah! What you want is robots; and extremely famous robots at that. That's what this season is all about.

I've trawled the stores of The Trade Federation (aka Amazon) to find all that is on offer to satisfy your geekish needs.

Kurt S Adler 10-Light Star Wars RSD2 Light Set

Star Wars R2D2 Christmas Tree Lights Set

How would you like ten glowing R2D2s wrapped around your Christmas Tree?  Kurt S. Adler has made this a reality for us.

Each R2D2 is spaced, at 12" intervals, along a 138" cable.  There's a gap of 30" from the plug to the first festive robot.  The lights flash between white and blue, illuminating the crafted, plastic covering.

Disappointingly the R2D2 Christmas lights don't go 'beep', but you can add the sound effects yourself. 

It's not like us Star Wars fans aren't used to that. We spent most of our childhood (erm, and a reasonable proportion of adulthood) waving sticks around going, 'jssssssswwwwwwwwwwmmmm'. (Well YOU try to phonetically render a light-saber's noise then!)  The occasional 'beep' is nothing beside that.

Star Wars Yoda Christmas Tree Lights

Star Wars Clone Trooper Christmas Tree Lights

Nor did Kurt S. Adler stop there.  As you can see above, his Star Wars Christmas lights collection also boasts Yoda and Clone Troopers!

All that has been said about the R2D2 lights applies here too.  These still don't beep, but nor would we expect them to.

Perhaps something that you press to say, 'To one and all merry Christmas' or a burst of laser fire.  I'm asking too much, aren't I?  Especially for items that shine so brilliantly at what they're designed to do!

Set of 10 Star Wars C3PO Novelty Xmas Lights

Star Wars C3PO Christmas Lights

Adler hasn't got the total monopoly on Christmas Star Wars lighting, as this set from KSA proves.

Officially licensed from Lucasfilm, it's a set of ten C3P0s on a string of green wire.  Let's face it, C3P0 was MEANT to be illuminated on a Christmas tree.  The dude's gold!

The whole cable is 13.5ft long, 30" of which is the distance between the plug and the first glowing robot.

The rest of them are spaced at 12" intervals to produce a truly intergalactic look to your festive decorations.

Star Wars 36" Yoda Lawn Decor by Kurt S. Adler

Star Wars Yoda Christmas Lights Lawn Decoration

Don't forget the outside!  Let your visitors know what they're walking into as soon as they enter your property.

This 36" high Santa Yoda has been designed to stand on your lawn.  The fifty incandescent bulbs inside not only illuminate the Jedi Master, but his trademark light-saber too! (I do like glowing sabers.)

Yoda's face is crafted out of PVC, which will make him durable in all weathers.

There's a 60" cable to feed back to the plug socket; and enough voltage to ensure that he'll be seen right down the street.

And that's all for now!  I've exhausted the festive Star Wars lighting possibilities.  I hope that you have a wonderful holiday season.  All the best from everyone here at Wizzley!

I can think of at least a couple people (my sons...and oh yeah, my husband, so make it three) who would love to have any of these Star Wars Christmas tree lights. And I certainly wouldn't be adverse to having them up on the tree either.

I know right! No home should be without one!

I've been in so many cool rooms, where the Christmas lights are up all year round. I keep meaning to do it too. I just need to get some cool ones. *scans over those in this article again*

There are some rainbow ones on the Gay Pride decorations article. :P http://wizzley.com/gay-pride-christma...

The neat thing about the decorative Christmas three lights is that you don't have to use them only during the holidays. I used to have my room decorated with plain yellow Christmas tree lights... Now I want to see if I can find some nifty ones like these to decorate my room with. I want something rainbow, but I feel like anything multi-colored is just going to look too much like a traditional Christmas decoration. But yeah, these are pretty cool.
