Star Wars Merchandise

Hi All,
I can't find a thread about SW merchandise not specific to the ST.. If I've overlooked it mods - apologies.

Thought I'd share something I just came across.
For me - one of the funniest pieces of merch I've seen!!!
How's this for a costume!

Got any random, off the wall, plain wrong, awesome SW merchandise you've come across?
Please share!

That is a priceless piece of merchandize. A friend in the US held on to that spoon for weeks (months even) waiting for me to visit him this summer. That’s true friendship Smile It was in a box of cereals or maybe with ice cream, I cannot remember. It is light grey at room temperature and turns dark grey when cold. I put it in the fridge, it works. How cool is that?

I don't think I've shown you guys my suitcase, but this is how I roll:


People literally stop to ask to take pictures of this suitcase like it is a celebrity lol. I also have the R2-D2 backpack and carry-on. They are great conversation starters. XD

Anyway we just had a long weekend in the U.S and I decided to take a road trip and drive from Illinois to Minnesota, land of Prince. While I was there I of course had to visit the Mall of America, the biggest mall in the U.S. Their Lego store is incredible! I ended up buying a Lego Vader keychain and this:


When I was checking out the cashier said something like "Ooh so cute, someone's shopping for a Darth Vader fan!" And then she was like... "Wait is this stuff for you?" and I totally pulled a Will Smith "Nah, girl psssh"



I said it was for my niece. But I am an only child. Ugh.

Then I went to the Disney store and spotted some 25% discounted Poe figurines and THIS amazing and lovely thing:


But I didn't get it because I'd already hit my spending limit on SW nerd stuff. Maybe next time. Sad

@SanghaRen
You're lucky, I wish we had something like that in my country. The best we had were tiny lightsabers during the prelogy era. Now there are no toys in cereals boxes. Crying or Very sad

@Darth Rowan
Nice suitcase Cool.
Yeaah, for some products we have to say it's for children, but at least you say it was for a girl. This little Chewie is really cute, it's the first time I see it.

@Darth Rowan

That Chewie plush H-beating I am struggling not to buy it. I have passed it a few times in stores and until now I’ve been strong but for how long..

And I try to avoid looking at the Lego buildable figures because they are so much fun to build, that I would buy them all and I want to limit now the amount of SW stuff. Merchandize is addictive. I’d pay though just to build the figures and then give them back to the store. LF: if you read this, this could be a new business model.

@LadyGaufrette

I think the US have more stuff like that. I don’t know if they have film-based toys in cereal boxes here in Germany because I only eat plain oatmeal, but I don’t think they do. I wouldn’t have bought it for myself (I want only unmasked scarred Kylo now), but it feels nice when a friend knows your obsessions and indulges you even if it’s SW and he’s a Trekkie. He also got me a toothbrush for kids last time in the shape of Ben’s lightsaber and with light and sound effect. Kylo’s voice while brushing your teeth: “I am immune to the light” Smile

@SanghaRen
You writted it right from my mind.

I'm opposite to you, I mainly have masked Kylo merchandising. (I'm weak against "creature in a mask")
I was thinking your friend was nice, then I saw he's a Trekkie, so my thoughts were:


(Kidding, kidding, I like Star Trek too. If he hasn't see it, show your friend this video, he should like it. Razz

And so it starts with the Vulptex. Please don’t, LF, I am already resisting buying the fathier plush.



And googling for more Vulptex stuff, here is what I found. It’s fan made. A little challenge for you, @guardienne Wink

@SanghaRen aaaaaaah this is seriously cute!

i wonder if the hairs are added or if the yarn is shaggy? it's insane to crochet with shaggy yarn, so adding them in later in probably makes more sense.

@guardienne

Maybe you can ask. Apparently she has no pattern and improvised. Looking closer, I wonder if the head and body are pompoms, but then how do you fix/sew the nose and legs to the pompoms. I don’t think that would work. I found some patterns (have to pay to download which I did not) for crocheted furry cat bonnets using shaggy yarn so I guess it is an option. This is going to bug me now. I can see how I’ll buy some yarn to give it a try and end up with yet another unfinished project lying around *sigh*.

If one of you don't know what to do with 9 000$, you can buy 2018 Topps Star Wars Stellar Signatures to have a chance to get the ultimate reylo card.
