A New (Star Wars-Muppets Cross-Promotional Merchandising) Hope



Disney just unveiled their new line of Disney-exclusive Star Wars Muppets figures, due this November when The Muppets movie comes out. They’ll be sold in two-packs for the upsettingly high price of $19, but supposedly, they’re more articulated than the last batch, and besides HOLY SHIT SAM THE EAGLE AS OBI-WAN KENOBI. The sets are as follows:

? Kermit the Frog as Luke Skywalker (with lightsaber) and Miss Piggy as Princess Leia
? Beaker as C-3PO and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew as R2-D2 (with separate “Star Wars” faces to reveal the Muppets beneath the masks)
? Link Hogthrob as Han Solo and Fozzie Bear as Chewbacca
? Sam the Eagle as Obi-Wan Kenobi (with lightsaber) and Gonzo as Darth
Vader (with lighsaber and his chicken Camilla as a Stormtrooper, with
separate face)

The Chicken-Stormtrooper would be pretty awesome too, if, you know, I hadn’t been running FFF for over three years. But if you’ll look at the signs in the back, you can see a sign for some kind of Star Wars Racers-type vehicles, and on the right some Disney characters as Clone Wars characters, including Donald Duck as Commander Cody, Goofy as Cad Bane, Daisy Duck as Aurra Sing, and Huey, Dewey and Louie as Jawas, I think. You know, sometimes being broke as shit is kind of a relief, you know? (Via Examiner)
