These are the Star Wars products advertised in the MediaPlay insert in today's paper. I suspect it is only a small fraction of what's available.

At this point, I say we buy all this stuff, at which point George Lucas will surpass Bill Gates as richest person in the US.

And I've heard dozens of Star Wars fans bash Star Trek for commercialism! They've said that Wars isn't out to make a profit of its fans... Erm, correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that why Star Wars comics are suffering?
Anyway, this is a pretty full list! *makes plans to get some sheet music*

I remeber last year before Christmas I found a list of all the Star Wars things for sale and there were hundreds of them. Every thing form toilet roll holders to life size models and this was even before any of the new Episode One stuff was out.
I'm not buying any of it, except perhaps some of the Lego which is really, really neat.

Well, I bought the magazines, and the sound track...but since I don't have any money, I'm not going out any time soon...hehehe.
George Lucas did say he really didn't make this movie to make money...he did it to entertain... On the other hand, Lucas DID expect to make money from the toy sales, as he is still a businessman, and plans to exploit Star Wars as best he can...heheheh

That's a hell of a lot of stuff. Lucas saying he made Episode One for just entertainment and not profit is bull. With a list, most of which is crap, how can he say that? Though I heard that Podracer game is fun.
Personally, I like the commercialism, the movie was awesome regardless, and now I get to buy lots of stuff to play with. I especially want the Darth Maul boxers and toothpaste (the Droid Control ship inflatable pool was tempting as well *L*).
*spent $100 on books/magazines/models this weekend, will spend more*

Where can I get one of those Supersoaker Naboo Pistols? *LOL* And knowing me, I'll probably end up with some of the Lego too...if you haven't seen the Star Wars section of the Lego website yet, you should check it out. (Make sure you have the Macromedia Flash plug-in!
