Star Wars Weekends – The Stuff I Didn’t Buy
Since I’m still dragging my feet on taking pictures of my sweet, sweet merchandise from Saturday’s day at Star Wars Weekends (shut up, I’m tired and busy), I thought I’d show you some of the stuff that I DIDN’T buy. Why? Because I can steal these pictures off the internet a lot easier and faster than booting up my shitbag phone, taking a picture, and threatening it into downloading onto my computer. Seriously, shitbag phone, but that’s why it was discontinued at the end of 2010. (Die a thousand painful deaths, Motorola Backflip. Shitbag.)
Darth Maul Donald
To be honest, I didn’t even look at the price at the park, but it’s going for $140 online. No thank you. It’s a sweet statue, but I don’t like it that much.
Anything Her Universe
To be fair, I did at least look at the Her Universe stuff… for a child. The demographic of childless 27-year-old Original Trilogy fan is NOT marketed to by that product line. Oh well, I’ll just buy a men’s shirt, cut the neck out, and look fucking adorable.
I very well might have, if the line wasn’t ridiculously long.
Darth Vader Cupcake
I saw the cupcake in the special Star Wars park map and was like, “Yes, this is food that is going into my mouth.” We saw them in person (they were HUGE). And then I saw the sign in front of the register: “Darth Vader Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes”.
FUCK FUCK FUCKITY FUCK
To those of you who are new, I’m mildly allergic to peanuts. I was almost willing to risk sickness just to have a cupcake, but thought better of it. Later, a friend on Twitter suggested that they might have special ones set aside without the peanuts, but by then I was nomming down on some delicious chocolate mousse that came with an R2D2 beer stein thingy.
