May the Fourth be with you! You’re going to be hearing a ton of that today, as Star Wars fans have their day in the sun. It’s also a day where we’ll hopefully get some new Star Wars news, regarding either the upcoming Episode VII: The Force Awakens or that auction that I’m bankrupting myself for in order to own Princess Leia’s gold bikini from Return Of The Jedi. There’s one other bit of Star Wars on the way however, as the house of mouse looks set to unleash the force of money in the next Disney Infinity instalment.
If you can’t tell who’s who in the Jedi zoo, that’s pre-OBI WAN YOU BASTARD Anakin Skywalker and his apprentice Ahsoka Tano, based on their appearance from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And that’s an interesting decision, as I was dead certain that Disney would lead the charge by using the characters from their newest show, Star Wars Rebels, instead. Still, don’t be surprised if that show gets its own separate playset instead, something which could be more profitable in the long run for Disney as the first season of Rebels was a hit.
Box-art examination also reveals the characters of Obi-Wan “Left me best pal to slowly burn to death” Kenobi, C3P0, R2D2,Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Yoda and what appears to be pod-racing. And honestly, I’m just excited at the idea of having a Darth Vader figure to add to my collection, and fearful that I might also need to add a Salacious Crumb piece to the game as well.
Frickin’ hate that giggling bastard.
