Not Real but Maybe Should Be: Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Pop-Tarts

Brian Altano's Star Wars toaster pastries

Brian Altano's concept design of Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Pop-Tarts was born from silly work conversations about hypothetical Star Wars merch, which is probably how George Lucas came up with most of Episodes 1-3. It's amusing, yes. But there's a certain thematic dissonance in pairing Carbonite with something you're supposed to put in the toaster (not that anyone does that anymore). And what would these taste like? Carbonite doesn't have an obvious flavor option, and plain old Harrison Ford Pop Tarts would just taste like old leather these days. Via Laughing Squid.
