Just right for The Man Who No Longer Has Everything….
R2 is cute in Swarovski.
Under 15? Never seen that cutoff before. When I was 14 I was perfectly capable of taking care of my nice things.
The age cutoff warning starts my imagination running wild. You suppose some parent would (a) give a $10,000 Darth Vader figure to a kid, would then do what with it, (b) include it in war games with green army men?
The Vader figurine is ugly. I don’t understand the point of ugly crystal..
Never underestimate how strangely the 1% will spend their money; I suspect somebody would do that just for show (“Look at how expensive my kid’s toys are!”). OTOH, Swarovski may have been being hypercautious; if it looks like it might be a toy but isn’t toy-sturdy, warn against giving it to someone who might hurt themselves with the results of damaging it.
