While shopping today at a local grocery chain (Cub Foods) I noticed an official Super Bowl LII pin with the Star Wars logo and lightsabers on it. This is the second lapel pin that has been found, the first was an R2-D2 pin posted via Reddit and was available at the Mall of America Super Bowl store. Could there be a reason for such a marketing partnership? A trailer for an upcoming film perhaps? We shall see.
Our friends at JediDefender reported finding this back on Jan 7.
