Unlicensed Star Wars Fabric Belt ('Let The Force Be With You' Buckle)
Every time I look at this belt I have to pity whatever kid got stuck wearing it back in the late '70s. Just look at it! It wouldn't have been long after this unfortunate child arrived at school that he was being ridiculed by his Star Wars-obsessed buddies; the same ones whose parents were kind enough to buy them real Star Wars belts, made by the Lee company.

I mean, just look at this thing. It's obvious that it's not the real deal. Sure, that little bluish head might, from a distance, be mistaken for C-3PO. But check out those yellow things! Are they R2-D2s or reject aliens from Space Invaders?

Here are some closeups. It might just be me, but Let the Force be with you doesn't quite have the impact of May the Force be with you.
