Disney Offering a ComLink, Mouse Droid and More for Fall 2016

October 20, 2016 – Coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort this fall, Disney will be offering some Star Wars-inspired products that some fans have been waiting decades for.

Look for a remote-controlled Mouse Droid in mid-December, 2016. We first saw the droid in A New Hope (1977) when Chewbacca roared at it, and the droid did an about-face and scurried away. Disney’s version makes noises and includes rechargeable batteries.

The first Star Wars film also introduced us to the Imperial Comlink, which Luke Skywalker used to communicate with C-3PO from the Death Star’s trash compactor. Now you can add the Imperial Comlink Bluetooth Communicator to your collection, or as a complement to your stormtrooper outfit. The device uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with your smartphone, so you can take calls or listen to music.

Of course not everything in space is made of hard circuits and steel. Just in time for the Holiday shopping season – or because you secretly love Ewoks – a basket of Ewok plush toys awaits you. Look for a variant Wicket, Tokkat, Latara, Widdle, Shodu and Winda at DisneyStore.com in several weeks. Another Ewok, Kaink, will be released individually at Disney theme parks in December.

Droid collectors will want to get their hands on the all-new carded R2-H16 from the Star Wars Droid Factory collection at Disney Parks. We’re guessing the “H16” designation is short for “Holidays 2016”, but we could be wrong. Retail price will be $12.99.

R2-H16 is not a Hasbro release, so you will have to search one of the Disney theme parks or Downtown Disney (Anaheim) or Disney Springs (Orlando). Alternatively, try DisneyStore.com later in the year.

If all of the above are not enough to satisfy your Holiday cravings, there’s one more electronic toy that is familiar and highly welcome: The Starspeeder 1000, one of the most popular playsets ever released, will make its return after a five-year absence.

The starspeeder comes with four “destination disks” that you insert to activate a sound clip from the Star Tours ride. A new disk will now feature the planet Jakku from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Retail price is expected to be about $75.00. Watch the video below to get a better idea of all the play features involved.

The above items and more can be viewed at the Disney Parks blog and will be available at select merchandise locations at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort. Some other items may also be purchased online at DisneyStore.com later this year.
