Build-a-Bear Makes Galactic Genocidal Sith Lord Huggable


Yes, Build-a-Bear is participating in Force Friday, and yes, they have an exclusive Darth Vader for those times when you absolutely, positively have to snuggle with a laser-sword wielding, homicidal religious fanatic whose hobbies include choking people to death and finding hidden bases.

The oddest thing about the Vader bear, which you probably shouldn’t think too hard about but we will anyway, is that the breathing mask looks to literally be part of his skin and fur, and the bear ears look like the familiar insignia of his new corporate overlords.

I imagine more than a few daddies will explain the lightsaber away to their daughters as a giant lipstick, too.
