Balls! Bowling balls, that is, the latest tie-in merchandise to make me ponder LFL Licensing’s collective sanity.
Being -1.7 years old at the release of A New Hope, and considering Star Wars as ‘boy stuff’ during my childhood, I never really got the whole action figure thing. But for those of you with memories of 1977 may enjoy this ‘exact replica’ of the classic Star Wars “Empty Box.”
Revenge of the Sith soundtrack with bonus Palpatine! Well, and a DVD. But mostly Ian McDiarmid. Oddly enough, does not come out on April 2nd with the rest of the prequel stuff…

Obi-Wan Kenobi Electronic Lightsaber — Turn it on and it vibrates with the power of the mystic energy field that surrounds all living things.
Mystical power of the Force. Sure.

Star Wars pet and baby costumes. Because we’ve been dying to dress some poor dog up like Slave Leia.
