On February 2, 2016, the Disney Store announced that the newest collection of Disney Tsum Tsum’s to be released with be from a galaxy far, far away. That’s right folks, the newest collection of stackable plushes will be from Star Wars!
The Star Wars Tsum Tsum collection will feature characters from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The Tsum Tsum characters will come in 3 sizes – mini, medium, and large.
But which characters will be featured you ask?? Excellent question! The collections will include Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Han Solo, R2-D2, Jabba the Hutt, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Yoda, C-3P0, Ewok and Stormtrooper. (I need to own Jabba for sure and Han and Chewie and the Ewok…. maybe all of them.)
The collection will be launched exclusively at Disney Store locations – both in-store and online – in the U.S., Japan and Europe on February 16.
“With a unique mix of charming design and collectability, Disney Tsum Tsum has solidified its place as one the latest Japanese pop culture crazes to go global, and we’re thrilled to introduce Star Wars characters to this ever-popular line,” said Paul Gainer, executive vice president of Disney Retail. “Disney Tsum Tsum has proven to be a true fan favorite and we look forward to delivering more exciting offerings in the future.” – Disney Store Press Release 02/02/2016
