This isn't a trap. If you are a Star Wars fan and ever wondering what it would be like to wash your body with Admiral Ackbar’s face, then you are in luck. Thanks to one geeky Etsy user, you can now buy you very own Admiral Ackbar bar of soap just in time for the holiday season.
The (appropriately named) online Shop Nerdy Soap is the retailer behind the Star Wars gift. The handmade item use organic coloring and essential oils to make the hilarious soap. The store put up the Admiral Ackbar soap up for auction, and it looks insanely realistic.
“The soap is a 3D representation of Admiral Ackbar from “Return of the Jedi”, with a flat base to ensure stability on the table!” the shop writes. “The soap is made fresh to order and packaged in plastic wrapping to ensure freshness.”
Currently, the store is on hiatus, but Nerdy Soap hopefully won’t be down for long. The giving season has arrived, and plenty of Star Wars fans will no doubt want the unique gift as stocking stuffers.
When the Etsy store does reopen, there will be plenty of items up for sale. The shop lives up to its name and sells a variety of geeky-friendly soaps. You can purchase a Jabba the Hutt soap if you so choose or even a series of giant LEGO minifigs. There are also soaps based on Star Trek, Pokemon, The Legend of Zelda, and more.
