Disney, I want a Dex's Diner set, and I'm not buying one dang other piece of SW merch until I get it!

Not really huge on Tiki culture and it's associated merchandise, but if it helps keep the Tiki Room around for the next few decades, I'm all for it.

I wouldn’t buy any of these but I dig the colors and their cool looking. I really shouldn’t be buying any more merch in general. I just don’t have any place to put. Even if I did you start to wonder why do I buy all this stuff when 90% of it is just sitting in their original box in the closet just like the new Starbucks mugs I bought last week.

I think the Star Wars tiki cups may be the only SW merch I'd be interested in buying. At this point, I'm a very casual fan of the IP at best. I've no interest in the literal representations of the characters or props, etc. The tiki cups offer a sort of lateral, ironic angle on the merch I like.

I'm still hoping for a Star Tours accurate Rex at the droid shop... not the DJ Rex nonsense. That'd be something worth buying.

I don't quite see the point of the SW tiki mugs. It's a cute gag... I guess... But if want tiki stuff, I'll just buy a straight-forward Americanized take on South Pacific cultural imagery, NOT an Americanized take on South Pacific cultural imagery's take on an American space opera fantasy. It's like watching the Simpsons watching an episode of Futurama where Bender goes to a Simpsons fan convention.
(EDIT) ...but I have to admit the Frozen Han is pretty funny...
