I like Guardians of the Galaxy, and thought Volume 2 was pretty cool too. As with the first movie, Groot pretty much stole the show for me. Baby Groot obliviously dancing away as the opening battle sequence rages was one of my favorite parts.
Forget buying a Nintendo Switch, the Japanese toy kids want these days are these stuffed plush toys that look like gigantic beetles. Strapya-world has a pair of plush beetle toys with one that looks like a giant stag beetle and another that looks like a rhinoceros beetle.
The rhino beetle is 11-inches long and the stag beetle is 9.8-inches
Fans of Boba Fett all know how the bounty hunter meets his demise in Return of the Jedi. He gets ejected by a blinded Han Solo right into the maw of the Sarlacc where he will be digested for all eternity.
This Schrödinger’s Cat Plush toy from is a cuddly stuffed animal that is both alive and dead at the same time, depending which side is facing you. You don’t even need a box to ponder what state it’s in.
I’ve long held the belief that the same people who make thise exploding ink packs that stain bank robbers also make the orange dye used in cheesy puffs. Those orange balls of salty deliciousness will leave you stained for days afterwards.
I don’t know anyone who grew up in the ’80s and didn’t want a Mogwai for a pet. Gizmo was, and still is the most adorable thing with those giant ears. There are a few caveats though: no bright lights, and definitely don’t feed him after midnight.
The result of breaking that last rule is a mean and ugly Gremlin that no one wants as a pet.
Do you like disemboweled Tauntauns? Good, because Disney is releasing ten new Hoth-themed plush toys that include Leia, 2-1B, a Wampa, Luke, Han, and even a Tauntaun. Yes, a Tauntaun Tsum Tsum. That is way too much fun to say.
The best part is that the Tauntaun is a carrier that you can open up and stuff your Tsum Tsums into.
The Nintendo Switch is the company’s highly anticipated new game console. While lots of folks are just excited by its gameplay possibilities, other fans are already creating fan art based on the theory that the controller looks like the head of a cute dog.
Are you a bounty hunter with a softer side? Then this Slave I complete with a plush Han Solo in carbonite is for you. The frozen smuggler docks right into the ship so you will never be without your bounty and always get paid.
This cute and soft ship is only $11.99(USD)
Do you need help tracking someone down? Need someone rubbed out? Or brought back frozen? Need it done by cute and cuddly professionals? If you can find them, maybe you can hire the plush team. These mini plush figures are cute versions of the Star Wars bounty hunters.
They are super-deformed versions of Boba Fett, IG-88, Dengar, and Bossk.
Growing up, my grandmother loved to knit me blankets with lots of space between the braids or whatever you call them in knitting circles. The thing I never understood is how is a blanket that has so much open space supposed to keep you warm?
I remember watching The Empire Strikes Back as a kid for the first time. When Lando betrayed Han and Han ended up frozen I wanted to kill Lando. If you are a fan of that scene and want a new plush to love (I know) you will want this plush Han Solo in carbonite doll… (nope)… stuffed animal… (nope)… whatever it is, you want it.
It’s much softer than real carbonite and debuted at the ThinkGeek SDCC booth this year.
Build-a-Bear Workshop is a place where I have spent more money than I want to even think about. If your kids (or you) are into stuffed animals and Star Wars, you will want to go by the mall and pick one of these up.
Earlier this week was Sony’s Ghostbusters Day celebration, as the first film was released on June 8, 1984. So naturally Build-A-Bear Workshop unveiled a new Ghostbusters line to commemorate the occasion. It was only a matter of time.
