Star Wars: The Force Awakens is no mere movie. It's a full-blown merchandising maelstrom with the global power of Disney behind it. Action figures have been all over toy aisles since the beginning, but with Episode VII, Star Wars tie-in products are flooding every retail space from the dairy fridge to the veggie section. And a lot of these Star Wars: The Force Awakens tie-ins are really bad. Just terrible. They're not plastic lightsabers or anything that screams Star Wars; they're items that couldn't be further from a galaxy far, far away.
Darth Vader and Kylo Ren have been slapped onto seemingly every imaginable product, from breakfast cereals to makeup to first aid supplies to water, the very essence of life itself. Whether you're hitting up the cluttered corner bodega or navigating the fluorescent sprawl of Target, you're going to see BB-8 staring out at you on every shelf. He doesn't speak English, but you know he's saying, "Buy me! Buy this mouthwash or you'll never know the tingly clean feeling only an astromech droid can provide. Buy me... Buy me now."So instead of listening to that adorable little droid and spending your hard-earned cash, scratch your Star Wars itch with this list of the most ridiculous Star Wars: The Force Awakens tie-in products. Vote up the funniest, least necessarily Star Wars-ified items.
