By the time you read this, Rovio and Lucasarts are holding a big reveal at the Times Square Toys R Us in New York to announce a Star Wars version of Angry Birds. Rovio launched an Angry Birds Tumbler last week and the only image on the page was the one you see above with a message telling people to be at the New York City Toys R Us in Times Square at 10:00am EST. The reason why they’re holding it at Toys R Us is that in addition to a likely phone app crossing Star Wars with Angry Birds, there’s a bunch of toys and games coming.
Over the weekend, Idle Hands managed to get their hands on some of the early images. There’s an awesome Piggy Death Star Jenga game that I may just have to buy because the pig Death Star looks awesome. There’s an AT-AT game, Early Angry Birds Figures that mimic the original Early Bird Star Wars figure release, plush toys, and even costumes that will likely be in stores in time for this Halloween.
George Lucas is going to be building a giant money bin to swim around in all his cash after this.
