I have no idea how this happened, but Mattel is putting out three Star Wars Barbies. Yes, Mattel. Yes, Barbies.
They’re fancy collectors editions that reimagine three iconic A New Hope looks through a high-fashion lens and they cost $100 each, so yes: Collectors items. But honestly, I mostly just enjoy the fact that they exist at all.
StarWars.com has a first look at 30 of the official store’s sure-to-be-many-more-than-that exclusives, with the highlight being a $30 Darth Maul plush that comes with three interchangable legs, because why wouldn’t he? There’s also plush convorees, lothwolves, and gorgs that are also puppets, plus the expected variety of t-shirts and other wearables.
But my other pick is this Death Star “succulent planter,” because it’s just so very random.
We got a big list of Solo merchandise yesterday, and most of it is standard stuff that I’ll leave to the collectors. But as I looked over it this morning, I spotted something new, and it’s super hilarious: The “Lando Tabletop Collection” from seven20.
