Star Wars Celebration V is in full-swing down in Orlando and one of the highlights of the convention is this life-size TIE Interceptor. This replica spacecraft stands tall and looks ready to fight "rebel scum."

Implications - Star Wars is a franchise that has effectively achieved what brands from all industries hope to achieve; the ability to exceed its initial intentions and become what is called a lifestyle brand. The success of Star Wars as a brand comes from their ability to rip through the constraints of the film industry and release products in other sectors successfully.
