This past weekend in Orlando, Florida the annual Star Wars convention, now in its fifth year, Star Wars Celebration V, was held. Even George Lucas returned from Tattooine (that’s where he lives, right?) to attend. Disney Parks, having the Star Tours attraction in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios and in Disneyland Park, featured a panel for Celebration V to highlight all of the new Star Wars-related Disney merchandise and upcoming things. This included an exclusive first look at brand new Muppets dressed as Star Wars characters action figures. (Note: Not to be confused with the Muppet Star Wars PVC figures released a few years ago.)
The first (of hopefully more than one) series of figures includes…
Kermit as Luke Skywalker (with Lightsaber) and Miss Piggy as Princess Leia (with blaster)
Link Hogthrob as Han Solo (with blaster) and Fozzie Bear as Chewbacca (with blaster)
Sam the Eagle as Obi-Wan Kenobi (with Lightsaber) and Gonzo as Darth Vader (with Lightsaber and chicken-Stormtrooper)
Dr. Bunsen Honeydew as R2-D2 and Beaker as C-3PO
There’s no official word yet on when these figures will be released in the Disney Parks, but as soon as the information surfaces, the Muppet Mindset will report it!
May the Force be with you!

One thought on “New Muppet Star Wars Action Figures Coming Soon”
I think this is not expensive especially since Muppets are considered collectible items. I bought this item for my sons birthday and he likes it.
