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.
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.
