We got a peak at some figures from the upcoming Muppets Star Wars toy series a few weeks ago. At Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we saw the full set on display.
The 8 figures from this first series will be released this fall in 2 figure combo packs and will retail for $18.95. Price point makes sense, as the Disney Character Star Wars figures that are similar to these retail for $8.95 per single figure.
Here are the Muppets Star Wars figures:
Kermit looks great as a Jedi Knight. The body and shape and paint job both are well done. I like the two hands on the lightsaber pose. It’s more original than the one handed pose from the Disney Characters Star Wars series. Packaged with…
Again, they perfectly captured the Muppets facial details here. I like the use of accessories like lightsabers and guns. Nice job with Leia’s hair buns.
Sam is the perfect choice for Obi Wan. He has that old and wise feel to him. Great detail with the feathers, tail and robes. And check out the joints. These are very posable. Another standout difference from the Disney Character series. Packaged with…
Gonzo kicks butt as Vader. Again, like the two handed saber holding. And the cape is a nice addition. He comes with a helmet. Looks like it will be the 2 piece pull apart that snaps around the head of the figure instead of over-top. Gonzo comes with Camilla the Chicken and Stormtrooper helmet.
This was another great character match up. They got the clothing down on this one. Packaged with…
Another no-brainer. The kicker is the rubber chicken in Fozzie’s side pouch.
We have not seen an R2 yet in the Disney Characters Star Wars series, so this a welcome addition. Packaged with…
The body on this one is outstanding. I love the molded head that can be put on or off… instead of just painted Beaker’s face gold.
