STAR WARS Day is the celebration of Fandom for all-things relating to "a galaxy far, far away," and if there's one thing that STAR WARS is synonymous with, it's merchandising. George Lucas pretty much single-handedly set the standard for Pop Culture merchandising in the late 1970s, licensing his creations for the gold standard in collectibles, the original 12 Kenner Action Figures. Now, under the Disney umbrella, the onslaught continues, with an exclusive line of merchandise rolling out at Disney Store today, but with other retailers and licensees getting in on the May 4th Action. Below is an assortment of STAR WARS deals from around the web, most of which even Watto would approve.

"They have every Disney Golden Book ever made. I had that one... and that one... and this one right here." Those were the thoughts running through my head last month as I browsed a selection of books held within The Walt Disney Archives in Burbank, California. Just a few weeks prior, when I learned (and later announced) that I'd be flying out to Los Angeles to meet up with the Disney crew for a variety of projects (a trip that Disney paid for in full), I'd visited my own archives, specifically, a silver tote in my garage that holds a variety of keepsakes from the earliest years of my life. Mickey Mouse and his friends were a huge part of my life back then (pictures here), and now they are again, as I raise my daughters... and continue my own adventures in media. To think that a little kid that was making Mickey Mouse thumbprint art in the 1970s would be exploring the heart of the Disney empire in 2014... it's still completely hard to wrap my head around.

Already stocked with 77 items (appropriate when you think about 1977... or 5-25-77), there's something for the entire family from STAR WARS RACERS (Die-cast cars based on the AT-AT, Darth Maul, C-3PO and more) to clothing for kids and grownups, banks, blasters, and plush, the new STAR WARS collection at Disney Store is well-worth a look. Here's a taste...

Chopper, aka C1-10P is a "cranky, yet goodhearted" little droid that plays an important part in Disney's upcoming STAR WARS REBELS animated series, which takes place four years before 1977's original STAR WARS film. The new droid just made his debut at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, and his video introduction can be seen below...
