    Galerie has produced two Star Wars steins. The Episode I stein has images of Darth Maul and the desert duel between Qui-Gon and Maul. The classic stein features painted artwork that looks like it could be by Tsuneo Sanda. However, the image seems slightly distorted...as though they might have had to stretch it slightly into the shape needed.

    A selection of plush items is also filling the shelves. Vinyl Darth Vader and Boba Fett dolls, previously available at Walmart during the Christmas season, are now available with cardboard heart boxes filled with candy. The heart-shaped boxes have character artwork by artist jAKE on them. You may remember Valentines featuring his artwork from a couple years ago.

    If you are a fan of the above plush/vinyl dolls, Galerie has upped the ante for Valentines with three new, smaller, plusher dolls. Standing about 6 inches tall, you can now get a plush Vader, Yoda, or Stormtrooper...each with Conversation Hearts candies.

    And last, but not least, is the Sound Activated Light-Up Bear with Candy! This bears comes wearing a Star Wars t-shirt. The logo lights up when it picks up nearby sounds, like your voice or music. It lights up sequentially like a radio vox. Works pretty well if you place it near your mp3 player or laptop.

    Are you like me and have to have each of the display boxes for this stuff too? Or am I the only one that crazy? :)

    I snag shipper trays and boxes whenever possible. I frankly can't afford to collect everything...I probably only bought 8-9 of the 45 items shown above...some when they went clearance. However, I did snag about 10 or so different shippers.

    I bought them all. Got a bunch on clearance and was able to get all the trays also. Now I just need shelves to recreate my own Target Star Wars Valentines Aisle :p
