Hey! It’s another tiny Vader commercial! *GASP* And there are tiny Jedi! And droids! And walking carpets. Oooh, and they’re all going to fight Vader and he’s… going to activate the Death Star… and kill everyone. Because he represents anti-environmentalism. Because he is the bad guy. And we should take care of our planet. And planet carers join the Rebels… *sigh*
