There’s the Han Solo frozen in carbonite yoga mat that will sell for just under $65.

The Death Star may look like a big ball, and it is. It’s more than a medicine ball. It’s called a slam ball, or a weighted fitness ball made of polyurethane rubber. It weighs 20 pounds and is 10 inches in diameter. It will cost just under $75 when released.

Take your kettlebell workout to the dark side with a set of handled weights carved with the likenesses of a Stormtrooper, Boba Fett and Darth Vader himself. Boba Fett weighs 50 pounds and will cost $150.The Stormtrooper is the 60 pound weight and will cost $180. Vader is the heaviest of the three and comes in at 70 pounds. He will cost about $200.

All of the workout gear is available for pre-order and will ship by the end of November, just in time for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”  Click here for more information.

This isn’t the first time Onnit has done a pop-culture movie tie-in. The company released a Marvel line of equipment, complete with Iron Man kettlebells and Captain America weights.
