Disney Unveils 'The Force Awakens' Tsum Tsums

By: Benjamin Hart

Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be officially out of theaters(and in our Blu-ray players), but that's not stopping a steady stream of new merchandise related the film from being released. The latest cool collectible to be revealed is a collection of Disney's Tsum Tsum plush toys based on characters from the film. Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, First Order Stormtrooper, Finn(Stormtrooper) and Rey(with goggles) will all be immortalized in the cuddly form. BB-8 will be available in both big and mediums sizes, while Captain Phasma and Kylo Ren will also be available in medium.

Their name is derived from the Japanese verb tsumu, which means "to stack". Previously other Star Wars characters such as Anakin, Qui-Gon, Boba Fett and many others were featured in the line, but these are the first characters from Episode VII to be included.

These Tsum Tsums will hit Disney Store shelves in Japan on May 4th, which will coincide with Star Wars day festivities there. Disney Stores in Europe and North America will get them on June 26th on the second of two planned #TsumTsumTuesday events.
