Star Wars has been around for over four decades now. So with that comes 40+ years of merchandise — both good and bad.
And recently, on Twitter, Star Wars star Mark Hamill has been sharing his own opinion about some of the wackier Star Wars items (both real and fake) out there. Let’s just say, he’s not-so-silently judging these products, and you wouldn’t want to be caught on the wrong side of a judgy Mark Hamill tweet.
For example, voice actor Jon Bailey tweeted at Hamill with a seriously sketchy product for Star Wars fans, a Tauntaun sleeping bag (H/T to Screen Rant). This sleeping bag is shaped like a Tauntaun — the creature that Luke was stuffed into to stay warm on Hoth. And naturally, the bag opens up down the middle so that you can experience the same warmth and comfort that Luke did in The Empire Strikes Back.
Hamill replied to the tweet mocking the product as a must-have for “animal abuse aficionados,” but if you have no reservations and were curious about the product… it’s currently still available at GameStop for purchase.
Mark Hamill says ‘No’ to these Star Wars gags
Hamill was also ready to throw some shade at Star Wars products that took a personal jab at Luke Skywalker and the unfortunate moment when he lost his hand in Episode V.
A tweet compiled a few photos of different Skywalker hand memorabilia (including a fake Kenner “doll” of Luke’s hand), and it was a hard pass for Hamill himself.
Then, as a follow-up, someone shared with Hamill a mock-up LEGO set that featured a build of Luke Skywalker’s hand from creator Ochre Jelly. The LEGO would be a fascinating build if it were real (and we’re sure some LEGO fans would jump at the chance to buy this) — but still, some 40 years later, Hamill joked a product like that would still be “too soon” for him.
Of course, Mark Hamill is a treasure on Twitter and his opinions are always valued. So if you were looking to buy some questionable Star Wars merch out there, you might want to check with Hamill first!
