    What you all think about using iconic Star Wars characters to sell washing machines?! It's not as if it's the first time it has been done (no smoking ad, xmas special etc.) But is this just a step too far from Lucas?

    Gives Anthony Daniels something to do and it's kinda funny.
    Any excuse to promote Star Wars in a way that doesn't degrade the characters too much.

    I'm actually suprised Lucas gave rights away for something like this given that he is notoriously controlling about such things.

    I LOLd at some of the text that was added, but it sounds like a rather unfairly bitter fan. Clone Wars is a great show, in many ways better than the Prequels. And what's with the Microsoft hating?
