ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
More tragically unsourced brilliant stuff from the tubes: a dead Ewok action figure.

I recall marveling years ago at that argument and laughing at how much time was wasted arguing for a position that is easily dismissed by realizing that arguing that real world physical laws apply to a fictional world with already known exceptions to real world physical laws is just silly. You have to pick and choose which real world physical laws you want to apply to the fictional world in order to make the argument work. As a work of fiction, George Lucas can simply say, “it didn’t happen that way because that’s not how I wrote it,” and just make up a reason why it didn’t happen if he felt the need to explain why it didn’t happen.
The ONLY good ewok.
Isn’t that kind of the opposite of an action figure?
What’s next? The scorched bones of Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen…hey…that’s a good idea! (probably already been done).
Disembodied Skywalker hands (fully poseable!)
Ask and thy shall receive:
You just totally made my day!
Could have sworn I’ve seen a pile of dead jawas before?
You can’t make an action figure of the Force. It surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together. That would be one big toy packaging.
there are plenty of “plush microbes”, you mean there are no plush mitochondria …er, metachlorians?
Collect all 10^70!
But wait, there’s more: http://www.randallcate.com/rc/2009/07/star-wars-toys-that-never-made-it-to-the-store-shelf/
Been around since 2007, at least.
All the articles I see point to a dead link on this site: http://www.mcmorran.org/
“No no he’s not dead, he’s, he’s restin’!”
He’s pining for the pines
At least it’s not a bent wookie.
You know, I need a new sporran.
Based on that ominous eye, I’m thinking you’re more of a three/four ewok man. Or oz.
Better yet: Ewok stickers for the bottom of an AT-ST’s foot.
I’d buy it.
Yeah the Ewok victory would have been more realistic and and felt more heartening had the movie showed hundreds of thousands of dead Ewoks instead of 1 or 2.
