It won’t come as a surprise to anyone reading this blog, I’m sure, that there are new Star Wars toys coming out. What’s surprising about these toys is that they took so long to come out, because they’re awesome, and different from any of the thousands of Star Wars toys that preceded them (that I recall, anyway).
Just ahead of the Summer season (in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway) come these amazing inflatable Star Wars pool toys and kites! There’s even a Death Star beach ball, which is such an obvious toy it’s amazing it took this long for them to make it. I can’t wait for these to hit the shelves at my local Target—I might even let my kids play with them.
(Now, we just need them to give ThinkGeek the license to make that awesome Tauntaun sleeping bag!)
