Just when I was wondering when the next Star Wars Tsum Tsums would be released, The Empire Strikes Back set was announced late last night! The six character set will debut at Disney Stores and on the Disney Store website on December 20th. The characters include: General Veers, K-3PO, an AT-AT Driver, a 2-1B Droid, a Snowtrooper, and Princess Leia. I can't wait to see more detailed shots, especially of the AT-AT Driver and Leia!
But wait, that's not all! Disney is releasing the very first Star Wars Tsum Tsum Bag set on the 20th as well! Typically, these sets have about a $30 price point. However, I will be updating this post as soon as the price is revealed. In the mean time, let us marvel at the creativity and cuteness! The bag itself is a soft and squishy Taun Taun who is probably deceased considering his eyes are closed and the bottom of the bag opens to reveal more characters. But, you know, we could just pretend he's taking a nap. Inside, we also get another Taun Taun in mini form who is clearly alert and happy, as well as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and a Wampa! This is an obvious need for any Star Wars collector.
What do you think about the new series? Which character is your favorite?
