It seems to be in lately to wear a rubber bracelet. Lance Armstrong did it with “Live Strong”, Nike did it with “Stand Up, Speak Up”, and StarWarsshop did it with “Revenge Of the Sith“! But there is more!
If you wanted one of the red SWShop bracelets, you had to be quick. If you were not to make it at C3, you had to relay on a fri d, or swap one on eBay. Because these were unannounced goodies, you can bet a lot ended up on eBay, however, if you don’t want to overpay for one, there are always alternatives to bidding.
Krull tunes in with this picture of 2 “REVENGE” bracelets to be found in the Star Traders! There are also blue bracelets with the words “REBEL” on them. He was not sure, but he believed there were also yellow “REBEL” bracelets. Each one retails for $2.00.
Not only Star Wars has these bracelets, nowadays, everyone seems to wear them. for whatever use they are good, I share a small tip for the convention goers If you, like me, was wearing a lot of badges, at a convention like C3, one of those bracelets makes it quite easy to bind them all together. Something like the Force… or ducktape. Thanks to Krull for the image and news!
