Rule 34, man. Rule 34 and Rule 41 in this case.

My world is not complete until I can also sit on a toilet shaped like Darth Vader, while reading the net with my phone, snuggled lovingly into a case shaped like Darth Vader. While of course wearing a Darth Vader bathrobe.

Furthermore, once I have performed my morning ablutions in my entirely black-and-chrome bathroom, I will have breakfast prepared entirely by Darth Vader-shaped appliances and eaten off of Darth Vader themed plates. I will put them into my dishwasher (shaped like the head of Darth Maul, because you need a little variety) and then get into my VW bug, which is of course shaped like the head of Darth Vader. I will drive to my workplace where I will sit in a cubicle in which every conceivable element is shaped like Darth Vader, from my pencil sharpener to my chair to my computer.

When I die, I will be dressed in a formal Darth Vader suit and enclosed into a coffin shaped like Darth Vader's head, which will be entombed beneath a gravestone carved with Darth Vader's head and nothing else.

Then, only then, will I be fulfilled.

Vader soap to go with your Vader shower head.
(Should have been called New Hope Soap on a Rope)

Also, I hope the Vader showerhead provides sufficient water pressure. Because you have to be able to say "The Force is strong with this one" or the point is lost, no?

Does George Lucas' shower head rain cash? Answer: yes.

Someone at some point is going to look at the shape of Vader's helmet and realize it was born to be a vibrator. That is, if someone hasn't already.

When I see things like this, I think of how confusing this will be for anthropologists in 2,000 years. They're going to assume we worshiped these characters (and who's to say that lots don't?).

We look back at ancient Romans and say, "Wow, look at this crazy convoluted mythology with all these crazy characters. They even had the Minotaur on serving plates and stuff! They believed this?" I like to think that all of the Roman mythology was just the product of a series of cheesy plays that, like Lucas, had an amazing marketing department behind them.

Someone told me it was inspired by this 3D slide projector.

How about a Chewbacca showerhead that leaves the drain full of hair every shower?

I just don't see who would need this. (I say this as a person who totally and completely needs these).

Sometimes I am amazed at the stuff Star Wars fans go ape-poopy for, but I shouldn't be.

If your water leaves mineral deposits and you're not diligent about cleaning, Darth is going get some snowy eyebrows and whiskers after a while.

Someone has already. I don't think anyone's manufactured anything, though.

I am disappointed that it does not cry out "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" when water is forced through it.

All showerheads do that, just at a very high frequency

There should be some kind of SFW Rule 34 that says every possible thing will at some point be sold as a Star Wars tie-in product.

. As the amount of money a piece of media makes grows, the probability of novelty soup tie-in products approaches 1.

This seems like a bit of a missed opportunity. Why have R2 and Vader shower heads when it would make more sense to, say, make a Boss Nass shower head? Or Emperor Palpatine, where the water shoots out of his hands like force lightning? Or a weeping Malakili?

I'm probably being unnecessarily pedantic, but the water pattern is not where tears come from. It's more like "bathe in the spray from Vader's exploding eye sockets".

....Which somehow suddenly sounds AWESOME.

Showerhead Vader looks surprised and deeply unnerved about what's happening to him. which I suppose is how a Sith Lord pressed into service as a showerhead really would look, so points for that.

"While the late 20th and early 21st century saw major religions vary by geographical region, with Judaism and its offshoots prominent in the West, Hinduism in South Asia, and Buddhism in East Asia, archaeological digs also show evidence of a globe-spanning folk religion. For example, small figures of a god named Darthvader have been found around the world. These figures have normally been found in children's rooms, so it is believed that Darthvader was a protector of children, and his fearsome visage was perhaps intended to scare away evil spirits."
