There really is something for everyone on Etsy. I’m prepping a few posts for next week, and I ran across a Luke and Mara Wedding cake topper. (What a post-ROTJ EU pairing has to do with The Clone Wars I have no idea.) The seller, Hildoom, also has a Yoda Birthday Cake topper for sale.
Cars. Jalopnik is on something of a streak, exploring the hot rod culture of and likening the Star Wars ABT Audi R8 V10 to something that “Anakin’s coke dealer” would drive.
