Joseph Enterprises Introduces First Ever The Clapper Collaboration with Star Wars

San Francisco, CA – November 20, 2018 – For the first time ever, The Clapper joins forces with Star Wars! The epic collaboration is the first in the history of The Clapper, and the first product from that alliance is the Darth Vader™ Clapper with Sound, in stores now.

With this newest release from Joseph Enterprises, Inc., fans can hear the voice of Darth Vader by plugging a lamp or other device into the Star Wars Darth Vader Clapper and turning it on and off with a simple clap of their hands. You’ll hear a Darth Vader quote each time to indicate your command has been received.

Clap on: “The Force is strong with this one.”
Clap off: “You underestimate the power of the dark side.”

In a nod to The Clapper’s original box design, the Darth Vader Clapper is available in retro-style heritage packaging as well as modern black packaging. Both have a suggested retail of under $30 and can be found in stores now.

Featuring a sculptural design in the shape of Darth Vader’s iconic helmet, this is not only a functional piece but a decorative one, perfect for any fan this holiday season!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
