Smiths to get, Star War fans
« on: 28 September, 2005, 10:08:24 pm »
Hot on the heels of the Marvel one there's a Star Wars themed hand-painted figures and mag starting (and going on for no doubt umpteen zillion issues).

Darth Vader with the first one...

The entry for the Tie Fighter says it's 9 metres long. I was gonna subscribe, but that'll never fit through the letterbox (no matter how much the postman tries to, ahem, force it).

Nah, that's his 'Join with oi, an' we can go roole the gaalaxy together'-type pose as done in 'The Empire Strikes Back'.

Still think they should have kept the original voice over...

The funniest thing about the Marvel ad was the attractive young woman judiciously collecting them.

Not that it's for me to stereotype the kind of people who collect these, but...

Are you saying attractive young women don't read comics and collect merchandise? Now I'm not one to gloat but I wouldn't want to be in your shoes when Bou sees you throwing comments like that around.

But surely even the mighty Bou realises she's in a minority?

Curse you Gary, I thought from the title that the Smiths were reforming and doing a song about Star Wars fans. Or something.

Don't worry - Bou surely can't get upset that she's not a stereotype.
