Imagine a world in which you could grab a cold beer from your Han Solo in Carbonite mini-fridge and recline into the fat of a Jabba the Hutt bean bag chair after a long day of work.
A long, long time ago, toy designer Jason Geyer had the opportunity to create merchandise for Star Wars: Episode One, The Phantom Menace. Geyer and his team came up with hundreds of incredible ideas for Star Wars products.
While LucasFilm and Pepsi produced a light saber flashlight and a Jar Jar Binks soda bottle topper, the glorious Princess Leia headphones and many other amazing ideas never made it into the production.
Geyer posted many of the rejected concepts—most of which were killed at lower levels and never even made it to Lucasfilms or Pepsi execs—on Actionfigureinsider.com.
