Star Wars and Lego release watches

First published: 11-03-2010

The ever-popular Star Wars franchise is joining forces with Lego once more, this time offering watches to the public as a childish alternative to regular timepieces.

Colourful and bright, the watches display a wide variety of characters on the face including Han Solo, Darth Vader, R2D2 and C3PO - of course, each incarnation is in their Lego form, which has served the franchise well in a couple of video games for a variety of consoles.

The colours largely match the characters portrayed too, with the Darth Vader incarnation harnessing black and red - the colours of his bodysuit and lightsaber alike.

Additionally, the strap is made out of interlocking links which have super-sized Lego notches all the way round, perhaps making the lightweight offerings a little bit uncomfortable.

Either way, they're out for general release on April 1st and do not seem to be an April Fool's joke.

Recently, game developer EA revealed that Star Wars: The Old Republic, the ambitious multiplayer game from Mass Effect developer BioWare, is to be its most expensive game ever made.
