Boba Fett Nyan

We've looked at cases for the iPhone several times before, covering leather cases that fold to protect the screen, rubber cases that don't and shock-proof cases for clumsy techies. The truth is, if you're looking for a case like those we just described, you don't have to look too hard to find them. So we thought we'd look for unique cases with fantastic art or features, rather than listing the standard array.

If you're looking for something a bit plainer or a tad sturdier, check out our previous collection of great iPhone cases .

Price: AU$42

These awesome pop-culture cases seemed to be the best way to kick off this collection — especially the Nyan Cat-inspired Boba Fett case on the left.
