Officially-licensed Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise
If we were deep in a novel, and while we were reading the real world had grown dark around us, we would like a minion to have a light source at the ready for us.
And, coincidentally, these Star Wars Desktop Accent Lamps do. Choose your flavor of minion (droid – BB-8, C-3PO, or R2-D2) or imperial cannon fodder (Stormtrooper). Each of these lamps has a convenient in-line switch and lights up at your behest. Provided you put a bulb in. Get one for your desk. Get many for all the places you need light.
