Star Wars poker anyone?

From geekology, There's pretty much no product that can't be Star Wars themed, and to prove it Sharper Image is selling these poker sets. For only $150 you too can be a proud owner. "The set includes 50 blue Luke Skywalker chips, 50 blue Obi-Wan Kenobi chips, 50 green Yoda chips and of course 50 red Darth Vader chips." It's also got a Death Star dealer chip and two sets of Star Wars playing cards. Perhaps the coolest thing about the set is that the chips are translucent and the case has 72 LEDs embedded in it, so when you open it the chips light up like two lightsabers. Neat. If I had $150 I might consider one. Except I'd decide to gamble with the money instead, because if doubled my money I could afford to get two sets. And that, my friends, is why I'm always broke.

I was ready to just say "bah! stupid!" until I got to the part about the chips lighting up like lightsabers. That's pretty groovy.

And it's okay that you have to leave the chips in the box to get the effect; those chip pics are kinda fugly.
