“Super Fire Speed Break” Coffee Can with Jabba the Hutt Artwork from Kirin Japan

Kirin in Japan is currently selling a line of Star Wars-themed cans that have various characters on them (you can see them on the Kirin website here at the moment, but I assume this will go away at some point). I imagine that these are mostly sold in convenience stores, where you would be able to pick out a particular character, rather than in vending machines, but I’m not sure.

Canned coffee is a big deal in Japan. There are dozens of brands that range from super strong black to sickly sweet, and you can buy it cold or hot from vending machines just about anywhere. In the winter, you can use the cans as hand warmers. Since they are often served hot, they’re made of steel, which gives them a nice heft. But as you can see in the picture below, they are generally quite small (to American eyes, anyway).

Anyway, it was cool to get another Jabba can in my collection (the first being the Jabba Pepsi can dating back to the days of Episode One).

    That’s quite a nice little item.
