    Default Star Wars crap- thoughts?!?

    I am overwhelmed and appalled by the amount of Star Wars merchandise out there.... Really if you are a massive fan or collector are you really going to buy ALL that crap?!? It just seems like such a shameless money grab with no thought of their target market, or general good taste- it seems TACKY

    Covergirl for example are selling Star Wars branded lipstick.... so ridiculous!

    Surely most of the branded stuff will end up in a few months reduced to clear in bargain bins, or am I completely wrong?

    Who's buying?!? Thoughts?

    we buy some of the stuff as our last name is in Star Wars ( don't want to say which one)

    But I agree some of the merchandise is just beyond a joke it's everywhere

    As the mother of a StarWars obsessed eight year old, I could not agree more! It's absolute madness!

    DS has never watched Star Wars so I don't buy it for him but the merchandise has been around for years, this year because of the movie release there is more of it - I know parents with older kids and a lot of DH friends love Star Wars and do buy the stuff

    I so hope it's skywalker!!! 😂

    It doesn't bother me tbh. I love Star Wars and you haven't been able to get cool merchandise for years so I think it's cool.

    Star Wars make waaaaaay more money from merchandise than from the actual movies, and it always has. It's mostly aimed at children, but yes, the SW makeup range is pretty silly
