“We’ve been working on the wave five figures for more than two years,” explained Cody [Hampton, developer for Toys and Games]. “We originally wanted to release them last year at Star Wars Weekends. With so much great new development for Star Tours: The Adventures Continue at that time, we pushed out [the action figures] release date to spring 2012. I’m thrilled to see these figures arriving soon as they are some of my favorites.”
