Don’t forget that tonight the Disney XD Channel will be wishing, “May the Monday be with You” with a series of Star Wars themed episodes.
Things get started with a Star Wars dream sequence episode of “Kickin It” at 7/6c.
Then an encore presentation (and the Disney XD premiere) of Phineas and Ferb Star Wars at 7:30/6:30c.
And finally a 15 minute “First Look” of Star Wars Rebels (which is rumored to included the first 7 minutes of the series) at 8:45/7:45c.
Now in regards to action figures, if this was a few years ago when we had figures made from every EU (now Legends) property, we would have said it might be possible to get these animated versions of the OT heroes but in this new age of Luscasfilm and their future films focus, figures are unlikely. Hasbro has very much set their immediate focus on the 5POA Star Wars Rebels line which is set to debut with the series proper in October.
One little caveat may be that these are all popular Disney brands and now that the Disney Store is upping their game on Star Wars merch, all bets may be off if (and when) they jump into the action figure game.
And yes for the record, we would buy a “Kickin It” Sith Lord figure (we’re pathetic, we know).
