StarWars.com gets back on the Japan track with 10 Cool Star Wars Posters from Japan. No, they’re not all this bad.
Tonight on StarWars.com, a look at Japanese Claw Machine Prizes. I believe I’ve seen some of the stuff (lightsaber TV remotes and lamps, the pillows above) in U.S. stores (or Thinkgeek) but much of it is all-new.
Japanese tea towels are actually, suprisingly, kind of neat. I love the Artoo Mount Fuji. Also: Shampoo bottles and pepper mills!
We’ve joked about eating Ewoks and Gungans, but this is a whole new level… Steve Sansweet reports on Star Wars sushi.
The very latest in the constant parade of extremely puzzling merchandise is Stormtrooper and Vader golf gear. From Japan, naturally. Gotta give them credit for not just slapping a silkscreen on a generic bag, at least in the case of the Stormtrooper.
The official site asks collectors to pick Japan’s best Star Wars merchandise.
Coke collectibles from 70′s Japan are exactly as cracky as you might expect. Well, okay, maybe just this one.
For the third (final?) look at Japanese book covers, StarWars.com features the Clone Wars, Dark Nest, Jedi Quest and Last of the Jedi series.
StarWars.com gets into the meat of the Japanese books covers with the New Jedi Order. These covers have developed quite a following among EU fans for their depiction of the large cast, many of whom have (or had) few reference images before this. (Above: Force Heretic I: Remnant.)
Hopefully there’s a part III, but you can see the Dark Nest covers here for now.
