The Force Awakens Themed Tsum Tsums Coming In June


Disney unveiled a preview of their new Star Wars: The Force Awakens-themed Tsum Tsum plushes, coming to Disney Stores in June.

First came Tsum Tsums inspired by characters from A New Hope. Next came The Phantom Menace collection, which included the cutest little Darth Maul and Jar Jar Binks you’ve ever seen. Now, Disney is recreating the magic of The Force Awakens in three Tsum Tsum sizes: mini, medium, and large (via Disney Tsum Tsum).

The minis are my favorite. They’re the cheapest at $5.95 in the Disney Store (about $4.95 at Target, which is where I’ve gotten all my Star Wars Tsum Tsums), easy to stack, and small enough to not take up much room, even if you get an entire collection.

While the The Force Awakens Tsum Tsum collection will be available for purchase at Disney Stores and online June 21st (per Stitch Kingdom), you may not see it in local Target and Walmart stores until about a month later. That estimation is based on the fact that I first saw the original trilogy collection in Target roughly a month after Disney Stores started carrying it. If you want to get it really early, you can see about ordering it from Japan, where it will be released on May 4th.

We reported in our article about The Phantom Menace collection that a The Force Awakens Tsum Tsum group would be soon to follow. We also said that Snoke would be part of the latter plush ensemble, but that was based on an error in our reading of the source article. The idea of Disney making a Tsum Tsum out of Supreme Leader Snoke, of all characters, did seem a bit strange. But who knows, maybe we’ll get him in an Episode VIII or IX collection.

In case you’re wondering why there are two Rey’s and two Finn’s: one Rey, as you can see, has her Jakku headgear on, while the other is rocking her triple bun. Finn, on the other hand, has a stormtrooper version and a Resistance one.

I would have liked to see Maz Kanata in this collection, but I suppose she’s one of the less present characters in the film. Of course, they don’t have Han Solo, General Leia, or Luke Skywalker Tsum Tsums, either. Disney probably decided to pick the more recognizable new The Force Awakens characters for Tsum Tsum incarnations.
