LG’s Star Wars C2 OLED TV Goes on Sale Tuesday
You don't have to watch Obi-Wan Kenobi or any of the other Star Wars movies and shows on just any old television -- LG is releasing a special edition of its 65-inch C2 OLED TV that's tailor-made for them. The Galactic Empire-styled TV was revealed on the show floor of the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim last month, and will be available exclusively from LG's site from 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m.
ET) on Tuesday.
It'll set you back £2,999, making it pricier than standard model (which can be found for around £2,100). This edition of the C2 features a Star Wars-inspired on-screen menu system, aesthetics and packaging that features Darth Vader. It also comes loaded with exclusive galleries of Star Wars content -- from original, illustrated storyboards to posters of iconic scenes.
The TV has its own Magic Remote -- don't lose this one.LG
The Star Wars C2 will include a themed Magic Remote, and its user interface will mimic the look of a lightsaber.
There will be only 501 units released in the US -- a reference to the real-world cosplay group and Vader's elite stormtrooper unit in-universe -- and each TV will include a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Given Star Wars fans' traditional passion for collectibles and limited-edition items, you can expect it to sell out almost immediately.
It's unclear when it'll ship, but we've reached out to LG for comment.

"The C2 offers image quality that's a clear step above any non-OLED TV I've seen, a bigger range of sizes than ever -- including a new 42-inch option -- and a price that's not too steep," CNET's David Katzmaier said of the standard, non-Star Wars model.
