If you’re a case-maker trying to play in a crowded space like the iPhone market, you really just have two options. One, try to be the best (see Otterbox, Case-Mate). Or two, use a niche to try and appeal to as big of an audience as possible.

PowerA has definitely gone with the latter strategy for its new line of officially licensed, Star Wars cases. Well I guess if you’re targeting large audiences, the iPhone-toting Star Wars crowd isn’t a bad choice…

iLounge points to PowerA’s new lineup of Star Wars cases for the iPhone 4 and 4S. The limited-edition set includes four character cases — R2-D2, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and Darth Vader, and two Saga cases with official poster art.

If you’re interested, the character cases, which are marked as Collector Cases, will run you about $40. And the Saga cases, as the feature less detail, will cost you $30. Both of them should be available sometime later this year.

What do you think about these Star Wars cases? Will you be snagging one?

  • 40 bucks? nah. my 12 dollar one from amazon is good enough.

  • Over price make it free

    • i’d do 40 for all 4 limited editions ones.

  • Yeah. So many other options available. And no Boba Fett? If you’re gonna do anything starwars right now you gotta include the bounty hunter. He is hot right now!!!

  • $40? That’s because $30 prob. has to go to Lucas

  • I like em, though R2-D2 is clearly the best (Boba Fett pls)
    Later this year though? After the launch of the iPhone 5 you mean? Which these won’t fit cos of the bigger screen? #redundant

  • got my Edge-Design Case, it dont get any better 🙂

  • OMG! I NEEEEED them ALL!

  • are going to do a review on this case??
