Dear God!!! (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index.php?categoryid=10&p2_articleid=1880) Even though you know it's something that will stop being fun after about a minute and just take up space, it looks damn cool. I'd at least like to try one out.

that is insane. i can see having a display at the TRU where you could try it out, but i think this will be a major clearence item once it finally hits the shelves. can't imagine any kids just sitting in front of this thing and try raising a ball in the air

Part of me thinks it's cool, and the other part beat that one up. :p It's not the Force, it's an ultra lightweight ball that you could probably move with static electricity, and all you have to do is think real hard to turn on a fan. That's not the Force.

It reminds me a little of a Harry Potter levitating ball game I got when the first movie came out. You turn on a fan to different levels and rotate the base to maneuver a ball through various obstacles; that was fun. I think there needs to be a little more going on here to make it more interesting; the design isn't very Star Wars aside from the small Jedi logo. Still, the using-brainwaves aspect of it is interesting; I, at least, have never seen anything like it on a toy.

It should come with a leather-clad Padme figure to impress. :thumbsup:

Mattel is releasing a "mind" power toy as well, though not Star Wars.

I knew it reminded me of something but couldn't place it. It's that Harry Potter game you mentioned.
I think the Force toy would be cool at a science center, but would get pretty old as a toy FAST.

Not as cool as Mindball:
