Back when the Marvel Tsum Tsums were released, collectors were lucky to get all of the Avengers plus a Spidey. This time around, it seems as if Disney is giving Star Wars fans the plush toys of their dreams with two releases for a total of 20 upcoming Tsums.
The first set features characters from the Original Trilogy, Yoda, Boba Fett, Jabba, Luke, Han, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Wicket, Stormtrooper, R2-D2 and C-3PO. I can’t even with that little Jabba. Too much cute.
In addition to the Original Trilogy, the second set of Star Wars Tsums also venture deep into the prequels with a collection that includes Darth Maul, Obi Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Jar Jar Binks, Qui-Gon Jinn, Sebulba and General Grevious. And yes haters, the Jar Jar is absolutely adorable and collector-worthy.
If you’ve yet to discover the joy of Tsum collecting, the first Tuesday of every month is Tsum Tsum Tuesday; that’s when the rush to grab your Tsums is a mad dash. While there’s yet to be any official Disney confirmation, it’s well known among collectors that there are also surprise release dates for special Tsums, and the talk of the internet seems to point to February 16 as a possible release date.
Tsum Tsum addicts like myself know that Star Wars characters were added to the Japanese version of the Tsum Tsum game in November, so it was only a matter of time for both the game and plush versions to be unveiled here in the States. Since the game version includes The Force Awakens characters, fingers crossed for a third wave of Star Wars plush Tsums that include Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and BB-8.
