With the imminent release of 'Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens,' fandom for the pop culture phenomenon is at a fever pitch. The franchise has seen a slew of extraordinary merchandising -- but this collection updates a staple for fans everywhere.

The concept of a Star Wars blanket is not novel but this collaboration with 'Pendleton' boasts the film franchise's classic characters with a contemporary design. The Portland-based company's collection features classic scenery with the intergalactic fighter-jet's, Darth Vader with the Storm Troopers -- and the franchise favorites -- Luke Skywalker, Leia and Han Solo. The collection comes with four different designs and a limited release of only 1,977 pieces -- referencing the year the original film was released.
