Lets face it, LucasFilm is a whore when it comes to merchandising. I personally don’t have a problem with any company making money off of a large fanbase. If a market exists, and fans are hungry for the product, than that’s great. But I do find it kinda sickening the extent of the outer and extended universe offerings. For example, action figures of minor characters who showed up briefly in the background of a scene. I found this image over on Fukung (via: TDW) that says everything I want to say about the Lucas merchandising machine. Too bad this action figure doesn’t actually exist, because sadly, I would consider buying just for the laugh factor.
