I would describe this Storm Trooper mug as geeky with a side of class. Meaning that I probably wouldn't purchase it for someone who isn't into Star Wars, but I wouldn't feel bad about purchasing it for someone who is into Star Wars, yet cohabitates with someone who isn't and finds herself (not to genderize, but 99% of this group has to be female) forced to make a home out of Wampa rugs and Yoda terrariums, and wear an R2D2 apron to cook dinner when she loses custom made light saber battles. Basically, it's a nice mug.
Lenny Mud hand paints Storm Trooper imagery onto each 16 oz. guardian of coffee and hot chocolate with extra whipped cream and a handful of 8-pound bag of Lucky Charms marshmallows in an effort to convert people to the dark side. No, I jest. I don't know why he does it. Probably to make a living. Mugs are lead free, non-toxic, and--the part you care about--dishwasher/microwave safe.
