The Disney Store invited staffers from sites like Rebelscum and Jedi News to drop by HQ in L.A. (which includes new Lucasfilm offices there…the first time Lucasfilm has had offices in SoCal since the early ’80s) and check out some new exclusive merchandise for the Disney Store. They also learned that Disney Stores across the land will have events on May 4, so you might want to stop by the mall on that day.
But don’t expect to find any prequel trilogy stuff! There’s been a lot of buzz over the new talking figures and figurine sets, and I’d love to pick up that stuffed bantha, but ignoring half of the saga? That’s ridiculous. Strangely enough, it didn’t look like anyone from any of these sites asked about it. Maybe they didn’t want to be impolite. Maybe they were a little dazzled by the VIP treatment. Or maybe they didn’t care.
