May the 4th Be With You: Best Star Wars Stuff Money Can Buy

Jedi fans will be roaming college campuses and city streets tomorrow wielding lightsabers and sporting their most authentic costumes in celebration of the unofficial Star Wars Day, May 4th.

Stemming from a play on one of the film's most popular quotes, "May the Force be with you", fans worldwide have twisted the phrase into "May the 4th be with you" and set aside this day to honor all things Star Wars. So don't be alarmed if you see people speaking weird guttural languages to each other, trying to open their car doors using the Force, or acting like their arm just got cut off in a lightsaber duel. It's all part of the fun.

For a true Star Wars fan, however, the celebration lasts longer than a single day.  You may have been embarrassed about your obsession with Jar Jar Binks action figures when you were in high school, but now that you're in college, there's no shame in letting your true colors shine through. In fact, there's nothing quite like surrounding yourself year round with the best Star Wars memorabilia student credit cards can buy.

Here are five collectibles that are sure to draw the envy of your fellow Star Wars geeks for many years to come:

1.) Yoda Backpack

Not getting enough attention on campus?

This backpack will surely garner lots of looks, but don't count on it fitting all your chemistry books too.

2.) Stormtrooper Lamp Clock and MP3 Dock

Here's the perfect solution to make sure you're never late for that 8 a.m. history class. Connect your MP3 player and you can even shower to the Star Wars theme song every morning. What a way to start the day!

3.) Star Wars Comforter Set

4.) Darth Vader Bobblehead

Come on, what college pad is complete without a Darth Bobblehead?

5.) Hasbro Lightsaber

I'm not going to lie. Even if you're not a Star Wars fan, you've got to admit these lightsabers are still awesome.  It's practically impossible to walk by one without picking it up, feeling the Force move through your hands, and then busting out your best impression of a Jedi Master.  Go ahead—show George Michael Bluth how it's really done!

In all seriousness, it's important to remember that "Jedi Masters of credit" treat credit cards like cash.  That means you should only purchase with a credit card what you have the cash to pay for in the first place.  And when your balance is due at the end of the month, you should always pay it on time and in full.

So if you've already saved up enough cash to afford adding some amazing Star Wars memorabilia to your collection, go for it.  Live it up.  May the 4th be with you.  If you don't have the cash saved yet, there's always next year.
