It’s often been said by SJWs that Star Wars is a kid’s movie about space wizards with laser swords. Yet you’ll be hard pressed to find any kid with a $150,000 Death Star wrist watch.
According to GQ:
Of all the childhood predilections men carry into adulthood, those attached to Han Solo and Luke Skywalker have always proved particularly unrelenting. A love of Star Wars, a franchise now worth an estimated $68 billion, has been crossing generations for more than four decades, just as the space opera’s protagonists cross galaxies in the blink of an eye.
It’s for this reason that Kross Studio is so confident it will find buyers for the ten examples of its $150,000 Star Wars x Kross Studio Ultimate Collector Set. The set is made up of a replica kyber crystal container, movie prop kyber crystals used on the set of Rogue One and a one-off watch design with the gloriously ominous name of “Death Star Tourbillon”.
While merchandise that Lucasfilm offers in a kid’s price range is full of carcinogens according to Gear Patrol:
Online pharmacy Valisure, which performs product testing, has found that a number of hand sanitizers may contain a cancer-causing carcinogen called benzene, as reported by Bloomberg.
As it turns out, though, that security might have come at a cost. Of the 260 bottles of hand sanitizers from 168 brands that Valisure tested, 17 percent contained detectable traces of benzene. (Eight percent of the bottles tested had small enough traces of benzene that the Food and Drug Administration deemed it tolerable.)
Benzene exposure is linked to an increased risk of developing leukemia and other blood disorders, according to the National Cancer Institute. Cigarette smoke is a common way people are exposed to the chemical.
A full list of the offending hand sanitizers can be found in the petition that Valisure sent to the FDA to get the agency to investigate. Some of the brands include artnaturals, True Wash, Born Basic and Star Wars The Mandalorian, so you might want to toss that Baby Yoda bottle.
Manufactured by Best Brands Consumer Products, the Star Wars Mandalorian hand sanitizers were shown to have high amounts of benzene.
