Along with the release of another Star Wars film generally comes all sorts of marketing gimmicks, toys, video games and more. Now, Sci-Fi geeks can really get into the new movie by showering in Darth Vader’s tears, literally “washing away the Dark Side.” Or if you’re all about the Rebel Alliance, there’s always the R2-D2 model.

The Star Wars showerheads produced by Oxygenics and sold internationally by Bed, Bath & Beyond, are available in two different models: the Vader model sells for $30, while an R2 model retails for $25.

The difference between the two, aside from the price and appearance, is that the lowest setting on the Darth Vader showerhead makes water run from the mask’s eye sockets, allowing you to bathe in Sith Lord remorse. It also includes a handle, leaving less of your bathing up to the Force.

Star Wars fans seem to have a mostly positive opinion about these new unique bathroom gadgets, with some of their remarks including: “Shut up, and take my money,” “a must have,” and “nerd approved,” though a few have commented that bathing in Vader’s bodily fluids just doesn’t seem all that appealing and one noted, “Vader’s eyes look way too much like cameras for any level of comfort.”
