Star Wars fans, you’ll definitely want to see this! Disney is launching some new Star Wars merchandise this month at Star Wars Celebration and select locations at Disney Parks, and we have a sneak peek at some of these unique items.
First off, there’s a limited release, boxed set with four Astromech droid action figures inspired by characters from the animated series, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.”
Additionally, three limited release action figures are making their debut including C1-10P “Chopper” from Disney XD’s animated series “Star Wars Rebels;” a two-pack featuring R2-D2 and C-3PO celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope; and a red Protocol droid, R-3D0, that was briefly seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Cody Hampton from Disney Parks Merchandise and life-long Star Wars fan says, “This is the first time we’ve introduced Protocol droids to the Star Wars Droid Factory collection. All of these pre-packaged figures have interchangeable parts that can be mixed and matched with action figures created at the Droid Factory.”
Those who love the popular Star Wars Build-Your-Own Lightsaber experience at Disney Parks will love the three emitters inspired by lightsabers seen in Star Wars Rebels.
Finally, we have a cute and cuddly plush Ewok scout named Paploo as seen in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. This is the 12th character from the limited release Ewok plush collection, and was created especially for Star Wars Celebration 2017.
According to Disney, these products will debut in Booth 3463 at Star Wars Celebration, a Star Wars fan event coming to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from April 13-16, 2017. Please note select single day tickets are still available for this event.
On April 17, guests may find action figures and the Build-Your-Own Lightsaber parts in select merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.
