Columbia Sportswear will sell limited edition 'Empire Crew' park at its downtown storefront.

COURTESY COLUMBIA SPORTSWEAR - The 'Empire Crew' Star Wars-themed parka has already sold out online. From a galaxy far, far away... comes the limited edition parka inspired by the jacket worn by the cast and crew of the 1980 "Empire Strikes Back."

Super fans, take a look at the $500 "Empire Crew" parka.

According to KOIN 6 News, the unisex jacket pays homage to even the smallest details of the original design. It features a waterproof, breathable and critically seam-sealed outer layer to protect against the elements while the thermal-reflective lining and insulation keeps you warm.

The parka went on sale online at exactly 12:01 a.m. Friday — selling out within minutes. However, select stores across the world — including Portland — will carry the jacket.

The Portland store is also carrying a handful of the parkas signed by Mark Hamill, the actor who portrayed Luke Skywalker. Those jackets will sell for $1,980 with the proceeds going to charity.

This isn't the first time Columbia has created Star Wars-inspired gear. Last year, the store fired up Star Wars super-fans with a line of winter coats inspired by the costumes of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo.
