Being Friday, it seemed like the perfect time to mine the repository of weird and wonderful gadgets at Hammacher Schlemmer, and as usual, the company does not disappoint.

For those of you who are tired of the traditional Christmas adornments, how about Star Wars-themed nutcrackers?

Steinbach of Germany have made two limited edition Star Wars models, one based on Yoda, the other modelled on Darth Vader.

Handcrafted from select European hardwoods, they're hand-painted to replicate the features of the iconic Star Wars characters.

Yoda stands at 9 and a half inches tall, carries a walking staff, and is draped in his “drab” robe. Darth Vader towers over tiny Yoda, at 18 and a half inches tall, and is decorated with vinyl boots, his breathing apparatus and a chest control unit.

Little Yoda will set you back $250, while Darth Vader costs $350. Get them while you still can.
