I have to admit I’ve found this year’s Force Friday offerings a little lackluster. Now granted, as longtime readers know, I’m no collector – but I do love me some unusual products, and we haven’t really seen any for The Rise of Skywalker – until today. And that is, the Star Wars x Le Creuset Collection.Continue reading “Le Creuset has a Star Wars cookware line and it is adorable”
There are actual Star Wars Barbies and they are amazing
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.Continue reading “There are actual Star Wars Barbies and they are amazing”
Have a plush Darth Maul your way at Celebration Chicago
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.

Who wants a Lando cape of their very own?
ThinkGeek has their first wave of Solo product out, and there’s no question about what the highlight is: The Lando cape. The pattern in the lining is inspired by Lando’s scarf.

Fine dining, Lando style
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.
Grease traps ahoy: The Solo/Denny’s alliance has officially begun
Denny’s did a big reveal of their Solo stuff today, beginning with Collider debuting a commercial for the promotion. The commercial may be for the restaurant, but the set is a recreation of the one from the film, with Solo production designer Neil Lamont and creature supervisor Neal Scanlan on board, per io9. The fateful card game between Han and Lando takes place there, and the creatures are mostly from the movie as well.

Kids these days to get to ride around in a mini landspeeder, because life is unfair
Hot toy alert: Radio Flyer is making a landspeeder! It’s drivable, seats two, has an interactive dashboard (with sound!) and will cost you a cool $499.99. (Maybe the price will go down when the XP-38 comes out?) Continue reading “Kids these days to get to ride around in a mini landspeeder, because life is unfair”
Wacky merchandise: Star Wars snack bowls may be a little too up close and personal
Hankering to snack out of Chewbacca’s mouth? Want to dig into Jabba’s jowls? Eat your Swedish fish with a little help from a wampa? If so, ThinkGeek has just the product for you! I suspect most of us are gonna pass.
Those looking for a more tasteful option may prefer this highball glass.
Wacky merchandise: The BB-8 cake mold
Of course there’s a BB-8 cake mold, and of course Thinkgeek carries it as part of their wide variety of geeky kitchenware. My only question: Do you eat his head first?
