Solo Toys Featured on The Simpsons

A big thanks to @ThatAndrewWard for the heads-up about this appearance of Star Wars toys on The Simpsons! This appeared on Season 30's thirteenth episode "I'm Dancing as Fat as I Can" which debuted on February 10th. Homer tries to make amends for binging his and Marge's favorite show without her; Bart prepares for "Krusty's Holiday Trample".
