Volkswagen made a big splash last year with its Darth Vader-themed Super Bowl commercial. The German automaker is sticking with the “Star Wars” motif this year, but with an interesting (if not controversal) character.
Remember the famous cantina scene in Mos Eisley, the spaceport town on the desert planet Tatooine that Obi-Wan Kenobi derided as a “wretched hive of scum and villainry?” Of course you do.
This is the Red Snaggletooth. But for us collectors, we still want to see the Blue Snaggletooth. That is where the big money is!

I grew up in Detroit. When I saw this commercial during the Super Bowl, it gave me goosebumps. Watch it and see if it doesn’t do the same for you.
