The Ultimate Controller For Star Wars Fans Has Arrived

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Ah yes, Star Wars...the merchandise stretches across the galaxy and we're better off for it!

And it looks like the latest addition to the collected touches down in the form of a rather epic controller for Xbox, which we think is going to be seriously tempting for any Star Wars fan out there.

Here's a closer look at the last Boba Fett inspired Xbox controller and where you can get your pre-orders in.

The Boba Fett Xbox Controller

For those of you who may not know (but probably do) Boba Fett is one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe, and he famously dons some of the most recognizable armour to date.

This controller and charging stand are heavily inspired by the hugely recognisable helmet and it looks absolutely amazing.

The controller is part of a series of product announcements ahead of the new show, including this pretty impressive replica helmet and some upcoming Boba Fett figurines for the collectors out there.

While the controller itself isn't what we'd call a 'pro-controller' this is the kind of gamepad that would make the ultimate gift for a Star Wars fan, and we think the design really captures the battle-worn, iconic armour of the beloved bounty hunter.

But what are we looking at here in terms of price?

Boba Fett Xbox Controller Price & Where To Pre-Order

For those of you based in the US, you can grab this controller from Razer right here.

It's currently listed at $179.99, which is around the price of an Xbox Elite Series 2 controller.

Mind you it does come with a quick charging stand, so you're actually getting a lot of bang for your buck, considering how unique the design is.

It's set to ship on December 19 according to the site, so you don't have to wait too long after your pre-order.

At the time of writing, we can't see this controller listed anywhere in the UK though, but we do have hopes that it'll head over that way at some point.

Analysis: Is This Just The Start Of It?

Creating new skins for existing products has been going on for some time now and lately, we've seen a lot of activity from Razer in this area.

Razer came out with some impressive Halo Infinite inspired gaming accessories, including a controller, keyboard, mouse, mousepad and headset to coincide with the game's release, and they went down very well.

With Star Wars being so popular around the world, what's to stop them from applying this same approach with Boba Fett or anyone of the new series in the future.

We could even see a tie in with a number of the new Star Wars games that are on the horizon too.


Let's face it, these controllers look great and they're just as much a gamepad as they are collectable.

Razer could be on to a real winner here, so we're keeping a sharp eye out for any more Star Wars-themed gaming accessories in the near future.
