Cue the music… and the giggles.

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…

We also get a look at some new toys. The highlight? An Obi-Wan lightsaber that, um, vibrates:

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.

Warm up those wallets…

Have you been saving your Republic credits? Because Lucasfilms’ licensees have a lot in store for you, this year:

The Celebration 3 Exclusive Figure

The Official Pix license awarded to C2 Ventures

The new line of stickers from Mello Smello (alas, not scratch’n’sniff)

The Hallmark Ornaments for 2005

The ROTS Topps Cards (Spoilers abound!)

This just adds to the list that includes the previously announced books, action figures and the rather nifty, yet oh-so-pricey, window blinds.

Must start playing the lottery, again.

Merchandise from Left Field

Not as bizarre as the Star Wars window blinds, but Lightsaber Pendants? For $200 a pop? Really? Ladies, can you honestly see yourself wearing these? Because I honestly can’t see dropping almost enough money to score an iPod on something nonfunctional that screams “I’m a huge geek.” People are going to know that the minute I open my mouth.
