At this point, there is no home accessory that hasn't been branded with Star Wars imagery. It's become so prevalent that you can even get R2-D2 soy sauce dispensers. So it probably comes as no surprise that a Darth Vader toothpick dispenser is getting ready to hit the market. One might argue that no one really needs a toothpick dispenser, let alone a Star Wars-themed toothpick dispenser, but we have to admit: this kitsch item is incredibly cool. 

Bandai created this fascinating collectible that looks like Darth Vader standing at the ready. When you push the lever on his back, his arm snaps toward his cape, and a secret panel opens to reveal a toothpick, which the Sith Lord grabs in place of his usual lightsaber. You can then arm yourself to fight off the bits of food in your teeth.

The item is set to be released in Japan (sorry, U.S. Vaderheads) in June for 2,980 yen (about $26).
