Was that a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced, or is it just your LEGO Darth Vader Alarm Clock trying to wake you up on the darkest side of Monday: the morning?

Depending on the proximity of coffee to your sleeping quarters, you might be tempted to raise your hand and strike the snooze button on this 7.75″ tall (does that qualify it as a megafig?) version of the infamous Dark Lord of the Sith, but do you dare? What if you don’t get up in time and you miss the window of opportunity that allows you to maneuver your way to the office deftly through rush hour traffic with the skill of a cocky Corellian smuggler?

While it’s well known that Darth Vader doesn’t tolerate failure; how does your boss feel about it?

LEGO Darth Vader Alarm Clock Advises You to Search Your Feelings

When the LEGO Darth Vader Alarm Clock goes off, you wouldn’t be the first one to blink through the early morning haze at the ridiculous hour displayed upon his sinister belly in disbelief and exclaim something along the lines of “No. No. That’s not true. That’s impossible!” But once you’ve searched your feelings, knowing it to be true, you can grudgingly roll out of bed and begin a fresh day with a smile on your face.

You see, as evil as the former Mr. Skywalker has become, it’s difficult to deny that the LEGO Darth Vader Alarm Clock is really… kind of adorable. How many supreme villains of The Galaxy can boast an effective reign of worlds-crushing terror while simultaneously being irresistible to Star Wars fans, LEGO aficionados, and other children of all ages?

If its Dark Force powers aren’t fully operational, you can always rely on backup batteries to get you on your feet and ready to face another day.

Get your own LEGO Darth Vader Alarm Clock at Amazon in time for it to wake you up by a much more reasonable day of the week — like Friday!

Our resident "Bob" (pictured here through the lens of photographer Jason DeFillippo) is in love with a woman who talks to animals. He has a fondness for belting out songs about seafaring and whiskey (arguably inappropriate in most social situations). He's arm-wrestled robots and won. He was born in a lighthouse on the storm-tossed shores of an island that has since been washed away and forgotten, so he's technically a citizen of nowhere. He's never killed in anger. He once underwent therapy for having an alien in his face, but he assures us that he's now feeling "much better." Fogarty also claims that he was once marooned along a tiny archipelago and survived for months using only his wits and a machete, but we find that a little hard to believe.

    Lockergnome no longer produces quality content. I hope you realize that.

      According to you, okay. According to the world, not so much.

      The world doesn’t revolve around you, FYI.

        No, sadly he’s right. 10-12 years ago this brand was producing quality content with newsletters about Networking, Servers, Desktops, Security, etc. similar to other tech writers of the time like Fred Langa, Scott Finnerty, and Brian Livingston. Over time, these newsletters were replaced with less and less useful content by semi-qualified writers. (Ex: A well-intentioned, but under-qualified Matt Hartley trying to take over the Tech articles with no Enterprise experience, so all his pieces were about helping “Grandma” with her computer.) Around 4 or 5 years ago, when Chris decided he was addicted to the internet/social networking, the whole direction of this brand changed to one that panders to those who sit in their mom’s basement guzzling mountain dew all day/night while staring slack-jawed at their screen. All content now is about phones, social networking, useless “geek” gadgets, etc. Seriously, what is this brand about now?? Before, it was about helping fellow techs with technology-related problems. Now, it is about Darth Vader alarm clocks and similar vacuous nonsense. So while you may think your “world” of a couple hundred 45 y.o. internet addicted geeks following you from their mom’s basement loves your “content”, your former audience that respected the tech direction of the newsletter has sadly deemed it irrelevant and moved on.
