Philips will be launching four new special edition Star Wars inspired shavers in time for the 15 December 2017 cinematic release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and you could get your hands on one of them!

The new range of shavers combine premium, cutting-edge technology with never-before-seen design features, emulating different characters from the Star Wars saga.

Mimicking R2-D2’s mannerisms with a blinking on/off light, which panels up and down the body is the Philips Shaver series SW3700.

The iconic orange and white colour scheme of the fan-favourite, BB-8 can be seen across the SW5700 shaver which utilises the Philips MultiPrecision Blade system to raise and cut all hairs for an amazingly precise close shave.

Utilizing the Reflex Action system on the Philips Shaver series SW6700, with a dramatic design which caricatures the complex nature of Poe Dameron’s X-wing fighter, down to the scratched metal finishing and red stripes. The Star Wars features continue with a red X-wing symbol flickering during use.

Wield the force, and seek empowerment through shaving innovation with the Philips Shaver series SW5710 that impersonates Captain Phasma’s armour design. This is the one that you can win!

The products within the range retain premium Philips shaving functionality whilst being themed around the iconic Star Wars movie collection. The range fuses Philips’ high tech innovation with the Star Wars characters.

The special edition Star Wars range of Philips shavers are available over December 2017 and February 2018. Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases nationwide in 3D from Friday 15 December 2017.
