        Gah, these are pretty funny, but I still can't quite get over the fact that there's successful merchandise based on a game meant to be played on a phone. (Does that make me a crotchety old man?) I probably won't be buying any of this, but I'll likely get the app. The original game is actually pretty fun. It's a shame that the Jabba's palace set doesn't have any Gamorrean Guards - evil green pigs? Maybe it would have just been too perfect . . .

        Wow.

        And I don't mean that in a good way.

        At least they're making it a lot easier for me to save money on SW stuff by making this sort of junk while making the figures I want impossible to find.

        I'm impressed that they were able to find so many ways to shoehorn SW into Angry Birds. And I'll be honest, these sets look fun, despite what the grandpa-crew in the 2 posts above me say.

      I'd prefer the latter.

      Whoever is swearing has to be from the Empire side. The Rebel Alliance will not use such lanaguage.
