We are so close. In just two months, on December 19th, we finally get to witness the conclusion of the latest chapter of the Star Wars saga with the arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in UK cinemas.
We simply can't wait to see all the blistering lightsaber clashes, the huge space battles and the final showdown between the dark and light sides of the force, with beloved characters such as Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, Poe Dameron, Chewbacca and BB-8 returning to the screen, along with a few new faces as well.
Here at Half Moon Bay, we're huge Star Wars fans too, and we're excited to finally announce that we've created a pair of unique The Rise of Skywalker products that are sure to cause a bit of a stir in the force.
Sith Trooper Shaped Mug
When we were conceptualising our first ideas for our The Rise of Skywalker products, we were immediately struck by the Sith Trooper's unique, yet familiarly menacing armour. The deep crimson tint is appropriately evil for a military unit with the word, "Sith" in their name, while older fans of the Star Wars saga will recognise the similarities between the Sith Trooper's visor, and the helmets of the Clone Troopers we saw in Episode III back in 2005.
Our Sith Trooper Mug provides you with an officially licensed recreation of the foreboding soldier's soon-to-be-iconic battle helmet, complete with all the details you'll see on the silver screen and high-quality finishes that make this mug worthy of the First Order's highest ranking officers. It's sure to become a Half Moon Bay favourite in no time, so make sure you order as soon as possible to reserve yours.
Kylo Ren Shaped Mug
Who can forget Kylo Ren's first appearance in The Force Awakens? The ominous music, the onyx black robes, the (admittedly cool) three-pronged lightsaber, and of course, the awe-inspiring helmet. Well, as you might've seen in the trailers for The Rise of Skywalker, Kylo's helmet is back, and it's more bad-ass than ever, with cracked lines where the iconic piece has been reforged for the final battle between the light and dark sides of the force.
Our team have designed an epic recreation of Kylo's helmet as it appears in The Rise of Skywalker, packed with detail, such as the scarlet reforging lines, and decadent silver markings around the ominous visor. We really wanted to give Star Wars fans a way to feel the power of the dark side while they enjoy their morning coffee.
