NEW YORK—Star Wars fans can expand their loyalty to the kitchen with the launch of Pangea’s new licensed line of small electrics in July.

The collection includes waffle makers—a group of 13 designs, each of which feature such iconic Star Wars people and things such as Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, Yoda and the Millennium Falcon—toasters, in Darth Vader, Storm Trooper and Death Star designs, a Death Star popcorn maker and an Anakin Skywalker immersion blender. The toasters will retail for $50 and $60, while the waffle makers will be $40. The line will be available to consumers both online and in stores next month.

A LucasFilm/Disney licensee for two years, Pangea Brands first showed the line to the industry at the International Home + Housewares Show in March.
