What's not to like with all these Dart Vader's merchandise?
Few franchises in history have been as successful as the Star Wars saga. The first movie A New Hope was released in 1977 and with each subsequent movie, Star Wars has become a cultural icon. Characters like Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Chewbacca became household names, but one character has dwarfed them all. The most iconic and most popular character of the series, and one of the most iconic bad guys of all time, is Darth Vader! You would be hard pressed to find a place on earth where an imitation of heavy breathing and the words “Luke, I am your father,” would not get people excited. With the release of The Force Awakens and more recently, Rogue One, the Star Wars saga continues to grow, and is attracting new fans by the day. With the hugely popular franchise getting bigger and bigger, what better way to embrace this trend than to own your very own Star Wars merchandise?
Due to the popularity of shows like The Big Bang Theory, or Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons, Star Wars merchandise has long been thought to be in the domain of the sci-fi nerd. However, this could not be further from the truth. Celebrities like Seth Green, Stephen Colbert, Seth MacFarlane and Samuel L. Jackson all have professed their love for Star Wars, and have been seen around town with a whole range of merchandise. Megan Fox has tweeted photos of her Star Wars memorabilia collection, featuring Boba Fett coasters and a life-size R2D2. Kristen Bell frequently appears at Star Wars conventions and has been photographed in Star Wars gear multiple times. Adrianne Curry, former America’s Next Top Model winner and reality show star recently threw a Star Wars themed pool party for her birthday. Star Wars is something we all grew up with, and with their new films catapulting them back into the hearts and minds of a whole new generation, Star Wars has never been cooler!
