50. Vinyl Music Record Wall Clock Gift for Star Wars Lovers

Vinyl Music Record Wall Clock Gift for Star Wars Lovers

Current Rating: 3.9

Is it presumptuous to assume that musicians like Star Wars? Doesn’t everyone like Star Wars? In any case, we love that silhouettes allow you to interpret the shadow. We think it looks like Chewbacca is rocking a bass guitar, while Leia is playing the lead. C3Po looks like he’s twirling R2D2 and Boba Fet is rocking a mean fiddle.

Key Features:

  • 12″ vinyl record
  • 1 AA battery required
  • Clock face is a sticker

Cost: Est. $30
