LG‘s special Star Wars edition TV – a reworking of the LG OLED evo 65-inch C2 – will go on sale today at 11AM ET. As we revealed in our May story, the display is the result of a collaboration with licensors Lucasfilm Ltd. Beware, though, that the offer is limited to just 501 units in the US and will be available solely via LG.com for $2,999 at this link.
The Star Wars LG OLED evo TV features a SW universe themed cosmetic design with a special edition branded version of LG’s remote. There is also a gallery of “exclusive” production content and artwork to peruse, with the whole package delivered in a Star Wars and Darth Vader themed box. The remote control user interface mimics that of the lightsaber, and the sound of Darth Vader’s breathing will greet you every time you turn on the TV (guaranteed not to intimidate roommates or family members). Each TV box will include a numbered certificate of authenticity. Let us know in the thread below if you decide to purchase one.
