    Today’s collectible is a trio of Star Wars lip balms. These light-up lightsaber lip balms can currently be found in Target’s Mini-Seasonal department, near the candy and other stocking stuffers, for $2.99 each. There are three different sabers: Darth Vader, Yoda, and Anakin Skywalker. Each saber consists of a detailed hilt, containing an on-off switch, batteries, and presumably a clear led light. The blade and lip balm are clear, and the cap is appropriately colored for the character (red, green, or blue). Each saber also comes with a matching carabiner clip, allowing you to clip the “lightsaber” to the belt loop on your pants. Quite a lot of thought went into the sculpt, and the clips are a great concept for added value.

    “The true test of a Jedi’s skill is how well one can apply Lightsaber Lip Balm, without cutting off one’s own lips. Hmm…yes.”

    This is a cool collectible. I wonder how chapped Vader's lips get under that helmet. ;)

    Lightsaber Lip Balm is back again this year at Target. Packaging appears to be the same, but has a 2011 copyright date. Last year Hot Topic also carried these, albeit at an elevated price.
