If you’re in the market for a novelty waffle maker, but are more inclined toward The Light Side instead of The Dark Side, there’s now a better option for you out there. Instead of getting a Death Star waffle maker (which totally exists, by the way), why not get one shaped like lovable astromech droid BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens? ThinkGeek has you covered with this officially licensed product.
What with his little round body and his devotion to Poe and his improvised thumbs up, BB-8 is too dang cute. We could just eat him up. And now, with the Star Wars BB-8 Waffle Maker, you can, too.
Let this Star Wars BB-8 Waffle Maker bring a galaxy far, far away to your breakfast table each morning. Its non-stick cooking plates duplicate BB-8’s design on both sides, and red and green lights indicate when the appliance is on and when it’s preheated and ready for your batter. It takes 3-5 minutes to cook, a little longer than Rey’s insta-bread. Your standard BB-8 waffle comes in at 5″ across x 6 3/4″ tall, just right to have a stack for breakfast or tuck one in your bag for a snack when you’re on the run from people who are probably just sad because they didn’t have waffles for breakfast.
You can pre-order it here for $39.99, and it should be available sometime next month. I understand why this would be a fire hazard, but wouldn’t it be cool if there was a little lighter that popped out (like his thumbs-up in the movie) to give the waffles a bit of extra crispiness?
