Lucasfilm and Secretlab have teamed up to deliver new Star Wars gaming chairs, featuring the Star Wars™ | Secretlab Imperial Collection to the world from a galaxy far, far away.
The Star Wars™ | Secretlab Stormtrooper Edition and Star Wars™ | Secretlab Empire Edition isn’t there to push unruly Rebels around, but to act as reinforcements for gamers as they conquer their battles. Secretlab’s chairs are part of their TITAN Evo 2022 line and are designed with ergonomic features that provide the support needed to endure long sessions of Front or playthroughs of the upcoming ones Eat: Survivor.
Packaged in a neat Star Wars themed box, the seats are admittedly overwhelming at first glance. The product is tightly packed with countless small and large pieces, protected by soft foam from every nook and corner. There’s a lot going on at first glance, which might be daunting for some.
But the assembly process is remarkably simple. Laid out in 15 steps on the back of a huge piece of cardboard depicting a stormtrooper or the Death Star, the instructions are clear and easy to understand. Using a handy tool box that comes with the unit, assembling the sturdy chair takes no more than half an hour.
The first thing that comes to mind when unpacking the chair is how tight it is. Running a hand over the smooth faux leather will attest to the quality of the material, and it’s important that buyers heed the warnings to keep the chairs away from harmful elements.
The Imperial logo is embroidered on the front and back of both chairs, which sticks out from the rest of the furniture. The Stormtrooper Edition is natural white and upholstered in black piping around the edges, with the front of the chair’s base sporting light gray lines reminiscent of the Imperial Troops’ under-eye vents. Each chair is also named on the product in Aurabesh by name.
Next to the Imperial troops is the darkness of the Empire Edition chair, something Darth Vader could be in when he sat down to play LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The textured ribbing exclusive to Secretlab’s Imperial Collection is lined in the same way as the Sith Lord’s undersuit.
Red and black are the primary colors of the dark side and serve as suitable choices for the second offering. With the Death Star as a symbol to guide the chair and its plans, it calls back to the appearance of the cell space seen in it A new hope are clear.
Back support can always be an issue with a chair, but there are buttons on the side of Secretlab’s backrests that adjust the lumbar height and curvature to meet the specific needs of each user. The backrest is also equipped with a lever for adjusting the backrest, with the tilt component of the seat adding to the flexibility of the chair.
Perhaps the best parts of the products are the magnetic properties. The armrests are made of a sturdy memory foam material that is protected by a thick layer of leather, which easily clicks into place and locks into place. A soft pillow can similarly be magnetically attached to the top of the backrest, providing excellent neck support and a comfortable experience.
It’s hard to find anything to complain about when reviewing the features of these chairs. Secretlab’s gaming chairs have been awarded, and rightly so. The introduction of the Star Wars line to the company’s catalog brings a chair as solid as any, justifying the hefty price tag for anyone in the market for a new gaming chair as the holiday season approaches.
The Star Wars™ | Secretlab Imperial Collection is part of Disney’s Bring Home the Galaxy campaign. Both the Stormtrooper and Empire editions come in S, R, and XL sizes and are on sale now in the US and Canada. Fans from other regions can register on Secretlab’s website for availability updates.
