bib fortuna

H and I are getting very excited about seeing the next instalment of the Star Wars saga. I decided to pose a selection of my collection of action figures from the franchise (old and dear friends, every one), first featuring just a few of those characters with walk-on parts who were only in one scene—albeit no less iconic, and those various costumed variants, suited up for action on different fronts.
I wonder if having a new hat, helmet is still a valid reason for marketers to introduce a new toy, which had little impact on directing decisions—assuredly it is and always was but times seemed simplier back then.  Nonetheless, the merchandising possibilities (though that might well be the unknown power of the Dark Side) seem really enthralling.
