Dark side of Gadget Shop flop

VaderFresh from his succumbing to the dark side of the Force in the recent Star Wars film, Darth Vader is going up for sale.

Well, at least a three-foot metal version of him is, as administrators from PKF look to flog the wares from the Gadget Shop, those purveyors of useless things that you never new you wanted.

Consultants King Sturge are organising the sale of Vader and fellow Star Wars baddie Boba Fett as part of an auction of Gadget Shop stuff, which will be broadcast via a live webcast.

But Gadget Shop lovers need not worry, PKF’s Brian Jackson told TS that the shop’s brand has already been sold to another retailer, so shopping for lava lamps, flashing pens and singing fish won’t be a thing of the past.
