Saturday Night Live's Parody Star Wars Toy Commercial

December 14, 2015


This is an SNL skit of a Star Wars toy commercial highlighting the differences between children (who play with the toys) and adult collectors (who preserve the toys in their original packaging and never touch them and only look at them). I actually know a couple hardcore Star Wars toy collectors, and let me tell you -- they get PISSED if you pretend to tear open one of the toys to play with it. Like, really pissed. These are the same people who have contingency plans for saving all their Star Wars memorabilia in the event of a fire, but haven't discussed any escape plans with their families.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to me, for staying up late enough to watch SNL because my Saturday nights have gotten progressively sadder with time.

    I used to be an avid SW figure collector, but gave it up years ago when they all went downhill in detailing. Though the Prequel films were pretty crappy, at least the figures were very well done with actual facial scans of the actors. After Ep3, Kenner just gave up on quality and started shoveling out the crap IMOO. The last great figure put out was Dengar from "The Empires Strikes Back" Vintage Collection line. The face detail alone was absolutely amazing. Of course, if you want to make yourself poor in a heartbeat, then you could always buy the various super, ultra, hyper detailed, totally over expensive figures put out by Hot Toys.

  • Wait… what… you’re not collecting??? I’m totally
    buying everything and NIB (new in box) them for the rest my life since I
    missed it the first time round in the 80's. Well... I was a kid and jobless (what
    a freaking loser) in the 80's so I guess that's a bit of excuse why I missed it
    the first time. I remember taking my x-wing fighter melting it with a lighter
    because I wanted it to have battle damage. Well… it didn't turn out the way
    I expected it and I blame it on my science teacher for being an idiot as a
    kid. Shots out to G Dub (GW) for having N.I.B. privates!!!

    Had a friend who I went to an antique toy show with one time and he purposely bought a rare SW action figure, mint in package, and opened the hell out of it because he just wanted to do that.
