Now, if you’ve paid any attention around here, you’d no I have little to no use for anything having to do with Star Wars gaming. So, needless to say, I am not particularly impressed with this $6000 life-sized statue of Old Republic Vader wannabee Darth Malgus. This goes beyond wacky, right into Frames territory. Though, honestly, if I had that much money to waste on absurdly expensive Star Wars merchandise, I’d rather have a set of Frames. Or two.
Malgus, for what it’s worth, was the star of a novel, Paul Kemp’s The Old Republic: Deceived.
I feel quite safe in saying that Santa Maul would not approve of the R2-D2 Can Cooler. Bubba Fett, however, will love it. (via)
Joining the latest parade of Phantom Menace tie-ins is Gogurt, which is packaging their yogurt in glow-in-the-dark lightsaber packaging. Neat, sure.
