LG unveils limited edition Star Wars 65-inch OLED TV

LG has collaborated with Lucasfilm for today’s unveiling of a Star Wars edition OLED evo 65-inch C2 display, which will be available to buy at a later date at LG.com. Limited to 501 units in the US, the TV will feature a Star Wars inspired user interface, aesthetics, packaging and gallery of content from the movie.

The TV will be on display at LG’s Star Wars Celebration exhibit from May 26th to 29th at the Anaheim Convention Center. The C2 model also features a Star Wars-themed cosmetic design with branded version of LG’s remote and a gallery of related content, all delivered in Darth Vader branded packaging. LG says the remote control user interface mimics a lightsaber with the sound of Darth Vader’s breathing when turning the TV on. Each TV box will also include a numbered certificate of authenticity.

“With LG OLED TV technology, the dark side can truly be an exciting and bright experience, especially when working alongside Lucasfilm,” said Tim Alessi, LG USA’s senior director of home entertainment product marketing. “We’re excited for avid Star Wars and technology fans alike to experience their favorite films in an immersive way through the limited-edition OLED TVs. You’ll truly never watch Star Wars the same way again.”

The TV includes LG’s gallery mode which turns a TV into a canvas by displaying paintings or artwork. The Star Wars edition will include two related art categories, The Conceptual Designs and The Journey of Darth Vader. The art under The Conceptual Designs category will feature original storyboard and illustrated images to show how Star Wars was created. The Journey of Darth Vader will showcase content such as movie posters and movie scenes.

Ah, the old "limited production" scam. Not falling for that. :cool:
Neither would I. I don't think it is worth the premium for a picture gallery, a remote with Star Wars printed on it and a cardboard box with a picture of Darth Vader; however, other people may very well think it is worth the coin and, for them, they wouldn't be wrong.

I think you've inadvertently illustrated why the rich get richer and the poor, well, you know. There are some exceptions, of course, but probably only a few in this particular case.

The price for this hasn't been announced. That's the MSRP of the regular 65" C2 OLED.

From the CNET article:
That's what I meant by "base" model, which means the customized version will cost substantially more. The absolute most I'd pay for a 65 incher these days is maybe $1500.00.
