Use the Force to protect your iPhone with these new Star Wars cases

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?
