The Empire Holds Milk

While packing up the kitchen, I ran across these old Empire Strikes Back mugs from my childhood.


Deka released a series of these mugs back in 1980. I have a set of what I would call “the good guy” mug, which has pictures of Luke, Leia, and Han Solo on them.


Deka released at least two other mugs at the same time. One (the “bad guy” mug) contained pictures of Darth Vader and Boba Fett. The other one had pictures of Chewbacca, R2D2 and C3P0. There was also a matching cereal bowl, but the last time I remember seeing it the dog was drinking water out of it.

Although they don’t have any currently in stock, you can check out pictures of all the various Deka mugs and bowls at
