Star Wars Merchandising Gone Horribly, Horribly Wrong

I was in the cereal aisle of the grocery store last night (not that I troll grocery stores looking for Star Wars merchandising or anything) and saw the Mace Windu version of Corn Pops. How the heck did Samuel Jackson go from Pulp Fiction to Corn pops? [See more]

Sigh. Oh well, I guess it’s only slightly more embarrasing than the Mace Windu mini-bust.

  1. I wonder

    1) How much control actors have over how their likeness in movies is used. I’m guessing they have none, which in this case is unfortunate as Lucas is a merchandising hog (Darth Vader toilet paper – show Darth what you REALLY think of the dark side!)

    2) How many pathetic fanbois will buy a box of Mace Windu Corn Pops, save it for 20 years and try to sell it on ebay.

    3) How many pathetic losers will bid on said box when it IS put on ebay?

  2. OK, George Lucas…cut that out!
