Found On The Web: People At Parks, Star Wars Edition
As found over at People @ Parks…
What do you get when you cross Star Wars, Disney, and a comedian with too much time on his hands? Two minutes of lame impressions, and several figures you wouldn’t pay a single bloody Disney dollar for.
How dare he insult Stitch-Yoda! I love that figure!But yeah, someone in the marketing department needs a wake-up call. Honestly, with the huge roster of Disney characters available to them (even if you exclude the ones directly based on fairy tales or adapted from books, there's still a sizeable cast to choose from), you could do plenty of mash-ups without repeating characters.Why Goofy as Darth Vader, when you could use Black Pete? (I mean, other than the fact that Pete has been sanitized down from an amoral criminal to a somewhat annoying bully, and few people under 30 will understand why they made Pete into a Star Wars villain. But still, Goofy as Vader? WTF?!)Technically, if you wanted to go for the traditional partner role, shouldn't Goofy be Han Solo? Or at the very least, Chewie to Donald's Han? Mickey and Donald may be on okay terms nowadays, but they were, at the very least, rivals once upon a time, for fan popularity if nothing else.What about Huey, Dewie and Louie as Jawas, and Morty and Ferdie (anyone else remember those two?) as Ewoks? (Or vice versa, I suppose.)And if there's not a Scrooge McPalpatine–or even a Flintheart Glomgold/Palpatine, if all of you Ducktales fans are too warm and fuzzy about "Unca Scrooge" (go back and watch Mickey's Christmas Carol to cure yourselves of that)–it's not even worth a look at the figure racks.
