The Force is strong with these Star Wars-themed iPhone 5 cases

Cassandra Khaw | April 15, 2013
Nothing shows your love for Star Wars like a Chewbacca-inspired, fur-lined iPhone case.

Even though the Jedi council is now the property of Disney, Star Wars is still largely cool. At least, if you ignore the atrocities that came up in recent years and stick with the classics. Either way, if you're an iPhone-wielding fan of the franchise and want a way to proclaim that love to the world, you may want to look into this quartet of limited edition iPhone 5 cases.

Before you start worrying about a Jar Jar Binks-inspired case, it doesn't exist. Yet. For now, Firebox is offering cases inspired by Chewbacca, C-3PO, Darth Vader and R2-D2. These wonderfully detailed cases are purportedly "sleek and sturdy' on top of being eye-catching masterpieces.

While they're all rather attractive, I'm personally most fond of the Chewbacca and C3-PO models; the brown fur is a delightful touch in the former (even if it looks a bit like the carpet you might find in a rumpus room circa the early 1980s).

Currently retailing for £19.99 each (about $31 US), these iPhone 5 cases are not going to be around forever. As such, if you're looking to take one of these guys home, you probably want to go purchase one right this instant.
