There’s no denying how awesome Star Wars is, well the original trilogy anyway, and if you were asked to name your two favorite characters then they would have to be R2D2 and Darth Vader. Being an iPhone 5 owner, I have often wanted a mean looking case for it, so imagine my excitement when I came across the one in black that symbolizes the greatest Sith Lord.
We found these two iPhone 5 Star Wars cases on the popular iPhone Rumors website, where they mentioned C-3PO and Chewbacca versions as well, but for me the previously mentioned two are the better choice, although the Chewbacca iPhone 5 case does come with faux fur. However, how long would it be before it started to look old and smell a little, just like a real Wookiee then.
For those who wish to embrace the Dark Side then the Darth Vader iPhone 5 case is a great choice because it symbolizes what is so great about the worst villain there ever was. As you would imagine the case has a black finish with small color details that represents Vader’s chest plate, which was to help regulate his breathing. The price for this case is $39.99.
Android handsets were able to offer their users a R2D2 version of a certain droid phone, but those with an iPhone were unable to have a version of the hero droid, which means they have to go for a case instead. While this may be a compromise would you really want a phone with a novelty design, it’s far better to have a case so you can swap it if and when you get bored? The R2D2 iPhone 5 case has a hard shell and has been finished in white with several blue colors that also features on the front of the droid from the movies. This case is also $39.99 and both can be purchased from the Power A website. While these cases do look pretty awesome I’d much rather have the Miniot iPhone 5 wood case becasue it goes with the premium look of the handset.
