The Venture Bros. episode where Dr. Venture has a garage sale features the sale of a rejected working lightsaber prototype, (Kenner balked at the multimillion dollar per unit cost!) to one of the Monarch's henchmen. When he tries to use it on bodyguard Brock Sampson, the henchman does the infamous "Jedi kid" moves.
The OT was released on Beta. Literally every major home video format (sans 8mm) has gotten Star Wars.
I'd personally like to see someone make use of the misleading Japanese poster art for Battle for Endor.
