Star Wars may be a great series of films, but its the merchandising that really sells it. Creator George Lucas was savvy enough to see the potential for this, and the jolly fat man rakes in millions of dollars every year through video games, toys and licensed props.

Here’s a look at some of them.

Jason Geyer from action figure insider is no stranger to exposing some rejected toy ideas, and is back with a whole new batch of artwork and photos of what could have been, which you can see right here.

In the mean time, we’ve cobbled together some toys which would have been absolutely brilliant if they’d been made for real. But they weren’t, and now I have a void in my heart that is in the shape of an inflatable Imperial throne.
