Some might recall the words of Yogurt the Wise
: "Merchandising! Merchandising! Where the real money from the movie is made." After a trip to the selling floor of "Star Wars" Celebration V
, we're going to have to agree with this one.
Sure, maybe your girlfriend
wouldn't appreciate coming home to a strange, mustachioed man, after you purchase the Lando Calrissian Disguise Kit
. No matter. Just slip some "Phantom Menace
" bubbly into her Vader's Fist O.J. (we find your lack of vitamin C disturbing) and all will be forgiven.
Keep reading for more of the craziest (but very real) "Star Wars" products we snapped at Celebration.
"Star Wars" -- the Breakfast Cereal
No self-respecting Jawa would start his day of stalking errant droids without a bowl of Kellogg's C-3PO's.
"Star Wars" -- the Cologne
There's a rumor going around saying that Eau Lando Cologne is nothing more than bottled Ugnaught sweat.
"Star Wars" -- the Bed Sheets
Well, at least you have a platoon of Clone Troopers to keep you company during those lonely, single nights.
Lando Calrissian Disguise Kit
Made of 100 percent faux tauntaun fur.
"Star Wars" -- the Toaster
That's weird. The toaster isn't supposed to do that.
"Star Wars" -- the Zombie Remake Poster
Never knew that Han and Leia were into that whole vomit-fetish thing.
"Star Wars" -- the Bubbly
This champagne was actually given to fans after viewing "The Phantom Menace" -- so they could get that bad taste out of their mouths.
"Star Wars" -- the His and Hers T-Shirts
These T-shirts are geeky fun, until your relationship grinds to a sudden and inexplicable halt. Then it's just awkward to be seen alone in it.
