Stuff We Love: Enjoying coffee in a cup with the top, middle, or bottom of a Star Wars character

I always start my morning with a cup or two (or three) of coffee, and that always leads to a difficult decision. Which geeky mug do I use? I have quite a few to choose from, but one set I love is my collection of three Star Wars stacking mugs.

The Star Wars stacking mugs set features three mugs with three different images on each, which form characters once you stack them on top of each other. The characters available are Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and a Stromtrooper. Why Leia isn’t on there instead of a Stormtrooper makes no sense to me, but I still really enjoy the cups. Luke and Han are wearing their iconic outfits from A New Hope, while the Stormtrooper is, well, wearing his familiar armor, too! One cup features the tops of the characters, one the middle, and the other the bottom.


You can move the mugs around in such a way that the tops, middles, and bottoms of the characters can be mixed up. That way you can decide if you want to have Han wearing some of Luke’s clothes, Luke dressed partly as a Stormtrooper and the smuggler, or other combinations of the characters on display. The mugs are slightly on the small side compared to some of my other cups, holding only about 11 oz. However, it’s not so ridiculously small that it makes them unusable. It just means you might need to have more than your normal number of cups of coffee in the morning to get the same fix!

The mugs are so much fun to stack, mix up the images, and decide in the morning which part of the characters you want to use. The Force is strong with these mugs, and are sure to be enjoyed by Star Wars fans whether you're an Imperial or a Rebel!
