When it comes to streetwear remixing pop culture, the Star Wars franchise has long been a prototypical source of creative amusement and visual inspiration. From hairy Wookies to Stormtrooper helmets and Yoda's new-age psychobabble, George Lucas' knack for creating legends is cinematically unparalleled, as was his ability to cash in by creating myriad merchandise variations.

Now adidas has joined the Dark Side (sorry) to create this intergalactic pack of apparel and footwear. There's track tops, retro Star Wars tees and a galaxy of shoes made to honor key figures from the first film. The headline act is definitely Lord Vader. His black quilted ZX runners and matching trakkie top complete with detachable cape is the cosmic egg we'll be fiending for! There are definitely some collector pieces such as the Micropacer to keep the fanboys hooked, as well as some stuff that should be widely available in all four corners of the universe. Look out for a release in early 2010, but we wouldn't mind betting our Tatooine shekels that this is just the tip of the Naboo iceberg!
