Freezing Han Solo in carbonite wasn’t the nicest thing Darth Vader did in the original Star Wars trilogy. Of course, Vader didn’t kill him either, so it could have been worse. And on the upside, encasing Han’s body in a brick of carbonite gave the franchise an iconic image to use for merchandise ranging from toys to housewares.
Case in point: ThinkGeek has a tabletop size Han in carbonite mini refrigerator. It doesn’t just keep things cold either; you can flip between warm (131-149 degrees Fahrenheit) and cool (32-44 degrees Fahrenheit) settings. But when you flip the switch to the warm setting, you really should be dressed like Leia as Boushh.
Though it’s small in stature, the Han Solo fridge can hold 18 cans of soda with the two shelves removed. The portable size makes it ideal for offices, garages, college dorms, or the cockpit of a spaceship. Having tibanna gas on hand isn’t necessary for operation. And yes, it will still work even if you don’t have a bounty on your head.
You don’t have to install a carbon freezing chamber in your kitchen or hire a crew of Ugnaughts if you want chilled beverages. Nah. You can just purchase this mini-fridge for $149.99 from ThinkGeek. Installation is as easy as plugging the appliance into an outlet. It’s not a trap or anything.
Will you be bringing Han Solo into your home to keep your blue milk at optimum temperatures? Head to the comments and let me know what you’d put in this fridge.
