One of the best parts of getting a set of Star Wars coffee mugs or a stackable cups is that you can save a few bucks and get a movie themed set that have a similar shape and feel. Check out the sets below and see if you can find something that suits your inner Star Wars nerd!
First we will start with practical sets of mugs which are larger and more commonly used for hot beverages like coffee or tea.
Popular Star Wars Ceramic Drinking Mug Sets
There are a lot of variety of Star Wars mug sets in the galaxy. Most of them contain a few ceramic mugs all made in the same style, but there are also stack-able mug sets.
Star Wars Stackable Cups Sets
Some people refer to the stackable sets as Espresso cups, but technically they are not. Espresso cups are metal, come with a small spoon, and typically only hold between 2 to 3 ounces of liquid. An Espresso cup holds half of a normal coffee cup!
Our Favorite Star Wars Mug Set – The Darkside Collection
Our favorite is the 20 ounce ceramic mug set “The Darkside Collection” of Vader, Boba Fett, and a Stormtrooper. These are awesome looking coffee mugs and always create great conversation when company comes over. They are simply huge mugs that hold a lot of coffee and are truly fun to look at and reminisce over our favorite movie moments.
I usually take these coffee mugs to work and they always generate alot of great movie conversation at the office. One of my favorite things to do is put down my Darth Vader mug on a conference table and tell people don’t get on my darkside. It’s just to bad the mug doesn’t come with the ability to force choke morning people…lol!
Mug Gift Sets
The gift sets of mugs tend to be a little more generic, but some of them come with bonus items like packs of hot cocoa. These gift sets do look nice, but they just lack the collectors edition type look that you get with the Darkside Collection Mug set I discussed above.
Other Mug and Cup Set Choices
Mug set are great having a nice matching pair, but the galaxy is full of other cup choices. There are traditional style mugs like the ones above, but don’t belong to a set and their are also color changing mugs. The color changing mugs are pretty cool like the one shown here on the right. When the cup has a hot beverage added to it, Kylo Ren’s light saber turns red. You can check out Star Wars heat sensitive mugs here.
While I haven’t seen to many color changing mug sets and its mostly individually marketed mugs, they are pretty cool and you can find a bucnh of them from the same manufacturer so that they can look like a nice collection of ceramic cups.
Some people only collect Disney cup sets. If that is what you desire, than make sure you look for the Disney logo on your product. If the logo is not there it doesn’t mean the product isn’t officially licensed, but it means its not manufactured by Disney.
Is the Mug Set for Collecting or for Actual Coffee Consumption?
Sometimes people get so excited about what a mug set looks like they don’t think it through for practical everyday use. For example the Star Wars stackable cups look better on display than broken apart and they are hard to fit in some kitchen cabinets stacked. Its also good to see how many fluid ounces a cup holds. If you are look me you drink more than 8 ounces of coffee at a time, your gonna need a bigger mug.

Buying Star Wars Merch
Star-Wars stuff is extremely collectable and is some of the most popular merchandise in the galaxy. Whether you are getting a mug, a cup, or anything related to the movie there are some thing you should be aware before you make a purchase.
First, There are people that only collect specific movie merchandise. My Friend for example, is particular about Boba Fett. He likes other stuff, but he really only collects Mandalorian merchandise…thats what he gets excited about. If you are buying a gift, know your audience. If the person you are buying for is not particular then the good news is there are 1000’s of differnt charcaters, logos, or movie themes available to you.
Some Items are Made in China
Be conscious, that lots of Star-Wars products are made and shipped from China. It is always best to make sure you are getting officially licensed product…it still might be even if its from China, but its good to check. If something does not say officially licensed there is a good chance that it wan’t approved by Disney or Lucas Films and the quality may be in question. In those cases make sure you read customer reviews.
The great thing is that if you get through Amazon they have great customer service so if there is an issue, you can work with them to resolve it.
