Just a quickie on a Saturday (cue Michael Scott – ‘That’s what she said’); I received an email from a good friend the other day. It was a link to a site that featured Star Wars toys that never made it to the shelf. It’s hilarious for both fanatics and casual fans alike. My favorite – the charred remains of Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen, sold separtely from the smouldering moisture farm playset.
Speaking of which, the Family Guy parody of the Beru and Owen scenes may be my favorite part of that episode; where Beru tells Luke to stop whining and come drink some blue milk? Glorious.
I would’ve posted the images but the poor creative soul who thought this up has a blurb requesting you direct people through this link. I guess his site was getting killed with all of the bandwidth being used as people were pasting the images into their emails.
On a side Star Wars note; much to my wife’s dismay I received the book ’Guide to the Star Wars Universe’ for Christmas. It’s a fascinating book – but a word of advice. If you’re reading the New Jedi Order series and haven’t finished it yet, you may want to just peruse this book as they chronicle that storyline as well. I found that out the hard way.
Be careful. And may the force be with you.
