i wouldn’t be able to buy prequel merch with it
because it doesn’t seem to exist
it’s VERY difficult to find anything on amazon, it’s either OT, ST or Clone Wars
and I get that clone wars is prequel era but… uh… what about the three films that came out?
I mean come on guys, people liked the fucking prequels, you don’t have to be afraid to also cater to those people.
There is much less prequel merch than OT merch but there is some! Here’s what I see when hangin’ round my favourite nerd shops talking to the people there*
*I mean, people who I actually know, or people who strike up conversations with me, don’t worry
Prequel-era lego seems to be everywhere in toy stores, just hidden behind all the new sets? They’re definitely in there though, I’m sure, just grab ‘em and move ‘em to the front
Episode I Tsum Tsums
LOOK HOW FUCKIN CUTE THEY ARE? Also cheap which is good. FUN FACT: talked to a retail lady about them once and she told me they’d all sold out in one day and jar jar was sold out first
I keep seeing Prequel action figures in Forbidden Planet, but my local Forbidden Planet is awesomer than most. Vintage toy stores also seem to have them, because 1999-2005ish is vintage now (I feel old)
get ‘em online:
I LOVE THESE THINGS SO MUCH.
….Admittedly, though, there’s not many prequel ones. In fact, I can count them on my fingers: Queen Amidala, Darth Maul, Holographic Darth Maul, Jar Jar, Kit Fisto and Plo Koon. (Plus the Yoda is holding a lightsaber, so I guess that makes him prequel-era too) My constant attempts to petition the offical Funko Pops Twitter with demands for a Qui-Gon have so far gone unregarded
get ‘em online: I have NO IDEA where to buy them in the US? You might be best off searching for specific characters on Ebay again
Found this Maul Mug in the Disney store the other week. I didn’t buy it because I don’t drink hot drinks (don’t ask) but he’s pretty cool right? Also available in duck form
Obviously I can’t let this section go without recommending Jedi Apprentice. READ THEM. READ THEM ALL. But there are loads of other books that feature the prequel characters! The Character Encyclopedias, obviously, and the Lego books, and the freakin’ awesome children’s Lego books, which I would totally buy if I wasn’t, you know, 28, and random weird stuff like Star Wars Thumb Wrestling
ALSO DON’T FORGET: The Star Wars Shakespeare series! All six movies (presumably TFA will be along later) done in the style of Shakespeare! ALSO ALSO DON’T FORGET: The Anakin and Obi-Wan comic series, which I dunno if you can get online but you can get in comic stores!
get ‘em online: see above!
