The Force is strange with this one

Yes, that's the Dark Lord of the Sith holding a candy cane and wearing a Santa hat. Whose idea was this? Seriously, I would have loved to be in that meeting at Hasbro when these were proposed: "Chewbacca holding a Christmas tree! Brilliant!"
Pictured here are the Star Wars Galactic Heroes Holiday Stocking Stuffer editions. There are 3 different sets of 3 figures, each priced at $7.99 each. And as the package description says: "Instead of intergalactic weapons, they’re wielding holiday-themed goodies!" Wow, just wow.
But perhaps I am being a little too rough on Star Wars... I mean, this is the franchise that brought us the Star Wars Holiday Special.
