Disney Parks held a collector panel discussion today during the Star Wars Celebration V convention at the Orange County Convention Center. Some brand new merchandise featuring the Muppets, Indiana Jones and Star Tours was shown – including some new information about Star Tours 2.
Graphic Designer Quynh Kimball (above, from left) and Product Developers Cody Hampton and Brad Schoeneberg led the talk and showed off the exclusive merchandise available for Star Wars Celebration. Then they had a chance to present some artwork for upcoming products they’re working on. They wanted everyone to know that the final products may not look exactly like what there were presenting and it’s possible some products may not get made at all.
First up were the latest set of Star Wars Disney action figures. This set will be based on The Clone Wars:
