Well, technically this would fit because he is in the game, but an HK-47 Night light. Can you imagine trusting that thing to protect your kid from all those mean old monsters hiding in the dark? Sure he'd scare them off, but then he'd just crawl right up next to your child's head and start whispering what he thinks of the "tiny meatbag"....

That is, of course, if he can keep himself plugged into the wall at the same time.

I wouldn't want to see them use SWTOR to do a re-release of the original line of action figures and toys. The worst merchandising I hated was the cereal adverts, bobbleheads and the Jabba beanbag/wamparug. As you stated though they will merchandise the hell out of SWTOR because they know its gonna be a hit and have a huge following.

Thinking about the beginning of the cinematic of the Sith Empire returning when the bounty hunter is checking out that one chick made me think of this. Two words for you: Inflatable dolls. >__

@JoeH42 - "Thinking about the beginning of the cinematic of the Sith Empire returning when the bounty hunter is checking out that one chick..."

Uh... Bounty Hunter? IN the "Return" video??
No, NO, NO!!! That's a Smuggler... Not a Bounty Hunter. Now they could have a "Smuggler" hawking "Twi'Lek Blowup Dolls"... I'd bet they would be popular. ;-)

OddzOn Inc (a subsidiary of Hasbro) produced a suck on Jar Ja's tongue candy. The concept went like this: The head of Jar Jar Binks was mounted on a plastic rod. The jaws were functional, and when you pushed on the stick, the puppet opened its mouth like an alligator.

This revealed a long pink tongue, realistically rendered with bumps and ridges. In order to enjoy the candy, you had to stick your mouth into Jar Jar's mouth, and suck his tongue.

Now, some people like Jar Jar, and some people don't. All I know is... Jar Jar sucks.

@(Unverified) the only 100% effective method to prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted midichlorians.

Shhh. Midichlorians don't actually exist in the Star Wars universe.

That Qui-Gon? Nice man, noble hero, honored Jedi ... but he'd taken one too many Force lightning hits to the head over the years.

Every day, in the cafeteria of the Jedi temple, he'd be like, "Hey guys! Does anyone here want me to test their midichlorian levels?" The other Jedi would just smile at him sadly, pick up their lunch trays, and move away from him ...

What I WOULD like to see (and I hope is secretly planned) is a NEW TRILOGY, based in the TOR timeline and following THAT canon. With TOR popularity at its highest, now is the perfect time to capitalize!

Also, who WOULDNT want to see that super super super ridiculously GORGEOUS jedi chick as a real life version? Maybe Angelina Jolie can pull it off( she can certainly pulll me off! haha)


Sad though, that SWTOR will be the ONLY mmorpg , aside from wow, that will actually promote their mmo CORRECTLY., And wil of course have millions of players like wow, I hope other desv wake up and start promoting...

If gods and heroes put a few comercials out on history channel after a medieval or rome show , then they would easily get noticed,

mmo devs.. WAKE UP!!! there are millions of potential gamers that dont even know mmos exist! lol, idiots

Meh, they tend to give out Fireworks in MMO games, either through a quest or as a freebie. They probably should make some SWTOR fireworks....for the kids!

(Of course, maybe some customer loss if they blow their fingers apart and can't use a keyboard anymore...)

;P

Oh, man... Those pizza-flavored Pringles are awesome! You're making me hungry for lunch, and I've only just walked into the office and got my first cup of tea.
