New Star Wars theme crayons now available.

Crayola has released a new series of Star Wars Crayons. 2 are 64 count boxes featuring Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper. The crayons in these boxes have black labels. For those collecting crayons by crayon name, each boxes has Glitter crayons that have been given names, abet slightly different that when they were originally release back in the 1990’s. The Darth Vader box has 4, black glitter, maroon glitter, orange glitter and red glitter. The Storm Trooper box has 6, Black Glitter, Blue Glitter, Royal Purple Glitter, White (confetti) Glitter, White (gold) Glitter and Yellow Glitter. 53 of the 64 crayons are the same color for both boxes. I searched locally and could not find them so I had to turn to Ebay. Paid less that the suggested retail and got free shipping that ended up costing the seller more than I paid to ship. Gotta love new Ebay sellers that haven't figured out how to make free shipping work for them. 


The other two Star War releases are 64 count boxes in tins. I have not seen these yet. These also contain a different Star Wars themed box that those above.  I'm going to guess the crayons are the same as those in the boxes above.
