…but that’s not because it’s a giant space slug, but because it’s an oven mitt — very likely the nerdiest oven mitt in the world. It’s currently available from for $20; it’s a lot for an oven mitt, but the play value of this thing is enormous. It’s pretty much a puppet that can hold 400-degree casserole dishes, so when you look at it that way, it’s a pretty good deal. And I’ve heard that if you hold a hamburger with and olive stuck to the side while wearing the mitt, George Lucas is legally required to fly down and give you a hug. Don’t hold me to that, though.
