Pointless Periphery : Darth Vader Wii Sensor Bar Holder

1 min read


The Nintendo Wii will forever be cemented in my mind as the console that spawned the most useless peripherals and addenda. Bowling Balls? No thank you. Pedals? I’ll pass, thanks. Inflatable Horses? Die in a goddamned fire. The force is strong though with this trinket from StarWars.com.

Essentially a Darth Vader resin sculpture, this one amplifies the geek chic by doubling up as a Wii Sensor Bar Holder, making the complete lack of Star Wars Lightsaber games on the Wii even more bitter. The $50 sculpture comes with it a third use; Proudly display it under your TV and it’ll ensure you never see a member of the opposite sex naked again. Ever.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
