Toy watchdog groups have approximately the easiest job ever.

"Huh, if a particularly inept kid can shatter this toy and then swallow it, it could cause harm!"

Ah ha! While everyone is distracted by the darksaber, it's the perfect year for me to start selling yard darts to the retro-gaming crowd.

Is it bad that my reaction was "Oooh, I gotta get that for my 6 year old daughter"?

Because I gotta get that for my 6 year old daughter.

I still remember laughing my ass off at a flyer on the wall in a Walmart recalling a car seat. The reason? If the parent didn't strap the baby in they could be thrown in the event of a crash.

You know, like every car seat.

You just know the recall was legal butt covering because some stupid parent didn't buckle in their crotch fruit and a recall was just somehow the cheapest way to shut them up.

BTW a "Mandelorian" would a person from Mandeloria. (Like a Russian is from Russia, or a Hawaiian is from Hawaii.)

Star Trek gets this wrong too. Vulcans would be from Vulc, or Vulca. (they actually use "Vulcanian" in early TOS) and don't get me started on Romulans from Romulus.
