Just when you thought Star Wars fans couldn't possibly get any more cool swag, the Star Wars: A New Hope soundtrack is slated to return to vinyl this month. The new release will feature two full-color picture records with double-sided pressed images. The first has the Death Star and a ghostly image of Darth Vader, while the other has X-Wing starfighters along with an action shot of Han Solo and Chewbacca. You can pre-order the set on Amazon for $34.99 and it will ship September 30. 

If the wait seems just too long, you can tide yourself over with this vinyl set for the soundtrack of The Force Awakens. The records feature holograms of both a TIE fighter and the Millennium Falcon, which come to life as the record spins.
