Next up in our Disney Star Wars Event focus are the porcelain character mugs. Each design varies in size and scale to reflect the character portrayed i.e. R2-D2 mug is short and squat, Chewbacca mug tall and thin. The outside design is also reverse embossed or “raised” to give even more detail to the piece. Each mug retails for $14.95. Click on through for the gallery.
Next up in our Disney Star Wars Event focus are the new plush items featuring R2 (with swivel dome), Jawa, Bantha and Tauntaun (no open belly – yet).

Pricing for R2 and Jawa is $9.95 each, the Bantha, Tauntaun and Chewbacca (not shown) are $19.95 each. Click on through for the gallery.
