The newly announced Angry Birds Star Wars app won't be available until November 8, but fans of both franchises can begin collecting the toy line starting on October 28th. Several online retailers are currently accepting pre-orders for the toys which include: A Jenga Death Star Game, an Angry AT-AT Attack Battle Game, and five plush Angry Birds / Star Wars characters (Darth Vader, Luke, a Stormtrooper, Leia and Han Solo).
Rovio Entertainment has also rolled out a line of new Angry Bird themed Halloween costumes for children and adults, and also plan to release an Angry Birds / Star Wars apparel line in the near future. The game will be available on more platforms including iOS, Android, Amazon's Kindle Fire, Mac, and Microsoft's Windows, Windows Phone and Windows 8. Rovio promises that both franchises will be well represented in the crossover.
"From the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Death Star – the game and merchandise will feature the Angry Birds characters starring as the iconic heroes of the beloved Saga," Rovio said.
Move over Furby! Rovio Entertainment is preparing to announce what will surely be one of the hottest selling holiday toys this year. Rovio and Lucasfilm will unveil an Angry Birds / Star Wars toy line at 10:00AM ET in Times Square, New York City. An image of a Star Wars themed Angry Birds Jenga Death Star was leaked this weekend. Various sources have also reported that a Star Wars themed Angry Birds game for iOS and Android devices is in development.
Little is known about the game, but we do know the red bird will be Luke Skywalker. I assume the Angry Birds will be battling pigs dressed as Stormtroopers on planets like Tatooine and Hoth. Rovio will also be making the big announcement at the Toys R Us Times Square location, making me wonder if the toy lineup will be a Jeffrey the Giraffe exclusive?
The Angry Birds franchise is going to a galaxy far, far away. Rovio Entertainment hinted about the next Angry Birds tie-in on their official Tumblr page on Friday.
Welcome to the Angry Birds Tumblr page. Over the next few weeks we’ll have behind-the-scenes content, animations, comics, and much, much more. But what will this all be about exactly?! Here’s a clue…
Rovio will unveil the upcoming Star Wars crossover on October 8 at the Toys R Us Times Square location in New York City. It's unclear if Rovio is releasing an entire new Star Wars themed game or something else altogether.
Accessory maker PowerA previewed their limited-edition, officially licensed Star Wars iPhone cases at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles. The lineup includes a fuzzy Chewbacca collector case, a detailed R2-D2 collector case, and two beautiful cases inspired by the original Star Wars movie posters.
The first four limited-edition designs will be available from major retailers later this year. The character cases will retail for $39.99 each, and the movie-poster versions will cost you $29.99. The hard-shell plastic cases are designed to fit the iPhone 4 and 4S.
