Friday STAR WARS (mostly pics)
BUT HERE ARE THE FRIDAY SW PICS.
OH, AND TO START THINGS OFF, A SMIDGE OF STAR WARS VALENTINE INFO. (WHERE OH WHERE IS THE DWEEB MAN OF MY DREAMS???!!!)
Be My Wookiee Valentine
This Valentine's Day, in addition to giving that special Force-sensitive friend a Star Wars card, show you care with these fun Star Wars Valentine candy containers, from Galerie.
The Darth Vader Lenticular Heart Box is a paper box with lenticular art of Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker with the text: "I'm Your...Valentine." Inside the box is a selection of Valentine M&M's candy.
The Chewbacca/Yoda Heart Tin with handle features Chewie with the phrase, "I'd Just as Soon Kiss a Wookiee" on the front of the tin.
On the back of the tin is Yoda with the saying, "A Happy Valentine's Day You Will Have." Inside is a M&M plain candies fun pack.
Both Star Wars Valentine candy hearts boxes are available only at Target. EDITOR'S NOTE: BECAUSE TARGET LOVES US AND WANTS US TO BE HAPPY!
The opening crawl for Star Wars was originally going to have these words precede it, but the title was redesigned and instead introduced as a card that zooms off into infinity before the crawl.
