New Disney Star Wars Action Figures Coming to Disney Parks

StarWars.com Team | March 5, 2012

DisneyParksBlog recently updated with several photos of their 2012 Star Wars Weekends figure series which will give Star Wars favorites Cad Bane, Commander Cody, Aurra Sing, General Grievous, and Jawas that magical Disney spin!

From Disney:

“We’ve been working on the wave five figures for more than two years,” explained Cody [Hampton, developer for Toys and Games]. “We originally wanted to release them last year at Star Wars Weekends. With so much great new development for Star Tours: The Adventures Continue at that time, we pushed out [the action figures] release date to spring 2012. I’m thrilled to see these figures arriving soon as they are some of my favorites.”

The new figures will be available exclusively at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort sometime this month (they will not be available at the Disney Parks Online Store) — sounds like a good reason to squeeze a Disney Park trip into your summer plans this year!
