Character unveils Angry Birds Star Wars plush

Published on: 22nd October 2012

Character Options, UK distributor of the Angry Birds plush collection, has confirmed the launch of a new Stars Wars version of the cult soft toy line.

The Angry Birds Star Wars game launches November 8, with Character’s plush launch to follow soon after. On sale from mid-November, the initial collection will include Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Stormtroopers, Princess Leia and Darth Vader. Each Star Wars character will be depicted in 5-inch plush, plus larger 8- and 12-inch counterparts, along with back pack clips.

Jon Diver said: “Our plush line of Angry Birds has already been incredibly successful at retail for both toy and gift. As popular with adults as they are with children, they are a must have treat for the millions of fans of the game. With the combination of everyone’s favourite app game characters, and the kudos and status that comes with Star Wars, there is little doubt that the new Angry Birds Star Wars soft toys will be highly sought after; especially as they launch just weeks before Christmas. We expect them to be in high demand and will do our best to keep our retailers in supply.”
