Cool action figures, toy light sabers, costumes and the like aren't the only Star Wars merchandise to bring smiles to fans of the franchise. In fact, far more questionable collectibles remain in circulation. Two shameless examples follow:
2. REVENGE OF THE SITH AIR SICKNESS BAGS
In 2005, Virgin Atlantic partnered with LucasArts to promote the then-new Revenge of the Sithvideo game. Four limited-edition Star Wars air sickness bags were made for all transatlantic flights. One bag included instructions on how to operate a lightsaber, while others featured a diagram of what’s inside of a lightsaber and how a Jedi Knight duels a Sith Lord. Another featured an airplane’s seating chart which highlighted the Light and Dark Sides of the Force.
15. JAR JAR BINKS LOLLIPOP
The infamous Jar Jar Binks lollipop from The Phantom Menace might just be the most bizarre movie tie-in product ever released with any Star Wars film. It was a push-up style lollipop with the Gungan’s hideous reptile-like tongue as the sweet candy inside. Who thought it would be a good idea to make a candy where kids actively French kiss Jar Jar?
