Disney Store reveal Star Wars 40th Anniversary Products


Disney Stores will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars with some special product releases on the day itself, Thursday 25th of May.


Action Figure collector eyes will immediately go to the new Disney Elite Diecast 2-pack of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in Storm Trooper Armour. While the Storm Trooper itself has been released previously, this is the first appearance of Luke in the range, and Han has only been seen previously in his older persona from The Force Awakens.


I did initially think Disney had gone the extra mile and made Luke shorter than Han (aren't you a little.... never mind) but when you look at the promotional shot side by side the heigth is the same. So essentially a human head on top of the current Storm Trooper body. We assume the helmets do fit on the heads, but we await to see how well that works and how they look once worn.

Other items include a Tsum Tsum 4-pack of Han, Leia, Luke and R2.


There is a boxed set of 6 figurines which look to be fitted with a string to hang them like an Xmas Tree decoration.


And finally there is a wonderful bronze effect statue of Luke & Leia - replicating the original movie poster pose.
