This special edition LG OLED TV debuted at last month’s Star Wars Celebration. Aptly so, since it celebrates the saga’s iconic villain. But now the LG Star Wars C2 TV is on sale. There will only be 501 models released, a nod to Darth Vader’s elite stormtrooper unit. And it’ll set you back a steep USD 2,999.
What do you get with this television? It’s LG’s 65-inch C2 OLED TV, and you get some Star Wars content, including a Star Wars-inspired on-screen menu system, packaging with Darth Vader, and exclusive galleries. The TV has a Gallery mode that turns it into a digital canvas, which will show you exclusive Star Wars art. You’ll get to see original storyboards and illustrations showing a behind-the-scenes look at the films, movie posters, and other imagery showing Anakin Skywalker’s journey from padawan to Lord Vader.
If you ever thought you’d want to hear the Sith Lord’s terrifying breathing, this TV powers up with that sound. It also has a unique themed Magic Remote featuring an interface that looks like a lightsaber.
As for its more technical specs, the LG Star Wars TV shares the same features as the regular C2 model. It has over eight million self-lit pixels and uses LG’s a9 Gen 5 intelligent processor 4K with Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro algorithm. These specs promise you vivid, detailed images and a screen that can automatically adjust picture and sound settings according to what’s on-screen. LG also claims this panel is 20% brighter than its competition.
Through this TV’s Filmmaker Mode, you can also take advantage of technologies like 4K resolution, Dolby Vision IQ, and Dolby Atmos. It’s an apt addition to a television celebrating an iconic cinematic experience. It also has AI Sound Pro for virtual 7.1.2 surround sound. Gamers will enjoy playing on this screen with a 0.1-millisecond response time and enough HDMI ports (there are four) to plug in a console and accessories.
