Hello Kitty meets Star Wars

Hello Kitty meets Star Wars

Hello All Black Kitty
Hello Batty
Hello Boba Kitty
Hello Buzz Kitty
Hello C3PO
Hello Darth Kitty
Hello Emperors Guard Kitty
Hello Gangsta Kitty
Hello Gundam
Hello Kitty has no shame. First appearing on a vinyl wallet in 1975, she’s gone on to become one of the most popular, most licensed, characters in the world. Last year alone she brought in over a billion dollars thanks to the sort of cross-promotional activities that would make Lady Gaga blush. We’re talking everything from home appliances and school supplies to Boeing 747s and theme parks. Oh, and a vibrating ‘neck massager'.

If the official stuff is diverse, the bootlegs are straight dumbin’. There’s the AK-47s, the bongs, the various sexual aids, the contact lenses, and the knock-off tees you can pick up at any Sunday market.

Anyway, thanks to New Zealand’s Joseph Senor, the Hello Kitty franchise has now hit another cultural milestone – the Star Wars crossover. While the images are just concepts thus far, we quite like the idea of a Darth Vader Kitty. And Robocop Kitty, even a Hello Gangsta Kitty. And hey, if George Lucas is prepared to put his name on Phantom Menace (and Hello Kitty already has a toilet paper range), we can’t see why these genuinely awesome designs can’t be made official. Someone sort it out.

Kitty gone bad! In Asia, people line up at Macca's at 6am to get the latest edition of Hello Kitty "couple" stuff toys. It was a real fad a few years back. If they brought it back now, it would still be that much of a hype. Mothers would help children get the coolest toys sought by other kids.
