Because Star Tots are awesome, obviously.
Honestly, they're entirely done by collectors. We're the ones designing them, working with the manufacturers to produce them, paying all production costs, arranging with LFL to license them, paying to ship them from place to place, spending dozens of hours assembling them before the convention, and even more to hand them out to collectors. Free of charge. I've literally spent the last 5 hours today working on spreading the word about them. That's just *today*. And my reward for that is literally 1 set of Tots. That's it. And there are jobs in the project which are much, much
more labor intensive than mine. So, that's a LOT of work to put into them, with very little actual benefit to us other than making people smile. If nothing else, I like to think that people appreciate them for that. They're a very expensive to produce and very time consuming to design/distribute collectible which is absolutely free. That's a rare thing in the world of Star Wars. But, again, they're also awesome in their own right. I've always thought they were the coolest exclusive around. And I genuinely mean that. I'm still pushing the other Chairmen to okay a Droids Kea Moll Star Tot at the next Celebration.
