May the Consumerism Be With You

It’s been brought to my attention that the new Star Wars movie might have gone a little overboard with marketing this go-round; Hell, maybe on EVERY go-round, but still...

Admittedly, toys will be toys, but at one point, it’s going to go too far and, well, there is just so much shelf space in a nerd’s home that can safely store Jedi action figures. I personally am not a fan of the series, but I can understand people’s desire to collect twee nonsense. If it makes you happy and you still have rent money afterwards, then go for it!

So, bring on any examples of the Star Wars merchandising juggernaut that you run across.
