I’d stopped at Target this evening for the mundane purpose of buying some silverware when I saw it. I wasn’t looking for it. I didn’t even know I wanted it until I saw it. But I saw it. And wanted it. And now it is mine.
My first piece of Episode VII merchandise. Yes, I bought the Force Awakens core set for the X-Wing miniatures game, but that was for the purpose of expanding a game I already play. This was me buying an Episode VII toy simply because it’s an Episode VII toy. I mean look at it: it’s BB-8! He’s awesome!
I have no intention of reaching the levels of insanity I did with Episode I. But that was water after a long time in the desert. We’ve had a steady stream of Star Wars stuff since the prequels wrapped up. I can keep it in check.
Although those new TIE Fighters look really cool…
