Rejected Star Wars toys

Merchandizing was as important to the Star Wars franchise as the films themselves. Almost anyone can probably remember some random product those iconic movies generated. For every Luke Skywalker action figure and plastic light saber that hit the shelves over the past 30 years, dozens of product ideas were rejected. Toy designer Jason Geyer recently posted a list of the rejected ideas from the brainstorm sessions surrounding the release of Episode One in 1998. Among the pitches that didn’t make the cut was a Death Star grill, Princess Leia headphones, and a Darth Vader gumball machine. My personal favorite, however, is the Jabba the Hutt beanbag chair.
