Yes, it will be a little bit of a hassle to have to travel to Disneyland to purchase the Muppet Star Wars toys. Yes, I'm sure at some point I will question when I'll stop getting excited by nostalgic pop culture merchandise. However, it will be all worth it when I have a Link Hogthrob as Han Solo toy on my desk.

From Disney:

Cody shared with me an early mock-up of the packaging featuring Beaker as C-3PO and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew as R2-D2. The other sets will include Link Hogthrob as Han Solo with Fozzy the Bear as Chewbacca, and (my favorite) Sam the Eagle as Obi-Wan Kenobi with Gonzo as Darth Vader complete with his chicken Camilla as a Stormtrooper.

These figures won’t arrive until Fall at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. If you are visiting Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can see them on display in Jabba’s Hut, the specially-designed merchandise location near Disney’s Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster.
