#558 Star Wars Merch

Star Wars is big in Japan.

Japan has some limited edition Star Wars merchandise.

And it is awesome.

First is the Space Opera toys – they dance and sing along to Star Wars tunes and you can connect them up.

If you buy approximately 1 million Stormtroopers you can make a really impressive army.

Yesterday saw the release of two new figures:

Also, you can buy the usual figurines with a Japanese twist:

And they have some super expensive traditional style figures too:

I don’t know how I feel about Vader in samurai outfits but it’s said that George Lucas was inspired by Japan when making the characters and costumes, so it’s only fair.
