ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Last October, IGN's Brian Altano announced a bold design fiction: an imaginary line of "Han Solo in Carbonite" Pop-Tarts. Several months have gone by and this is still not a thing. The world is broken.
Would You Eat These Star Wars Pop-Tarts?
(Thanks, Fipi Lele!)
Unfortunately someone made the pop tarts from real carbonite and during initial product testing several test subject broke teeth while trying to chew the pop tarts. Oh, well.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Wait where’s the on switch?
I think an edit that must happen to the next Star Wars release is adding sprinkles to Han Solo’s prison/tomb. Completely changes the character of the movie, for the better.
To be honest, given the willingness of Lucasfilm to license pretty much anything that wasn’t blatantly illegal, I am amazed we didn’t get them in 1981.
God dammit anonmouse
I wonder what flavor they are.
Frosted Han Solo in Carbonite: It tastes like people!
It hardly matters, the taste is going to be spoiled by freezer burn.
This, and many other types of character and artifact designs, could be handled by a 3D ganache printer.
Half an hour to print, down your kid’s trap in fifteen seconds.
“Who knew rapscallions could be so delicious? Think I’ll pass on the wookie one, though …. “
I hate to get all technical here…but in a toaster. Han would melt before the heat reached the marker.
Jabba the Hutt frosted frozen Han Solo with something. And it wasn’t sugar frosting.
What it the toaster is set too high? He’s no good to me burned.
Sweet, slightly singed, single-serving Solo satiates swiftly; suckers sincere Star Wars supporters simultaneously.
Snakes, why did it have to be snakes?
The world is not broken.
Those things have got to taste like smegma.
