@Tadeo – This is Steven from Disney Theme Park Merchandise. There are four medium sized figures this year. You can see them in the image gallery in this article – http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/05/new-merchandise-coming-summer-2013-to-disney-parks/

We didn’t offer a pre-sale of figures this year for Star Wars Weekends. If you contact our Merchandise Guest Services team, they may be able to assist. You can find their contact information in this article:

I can’t seem to find the Cars Star Wars merchandise (theCars characters made up in SW garb.) and no Cast Members seem to know where they are either. Anyone have any idea? It’s our last day today and I’d love to find them

@Jacelyn – Sorry to hear that you weren’t able to locate them The Pixar “Cars” characters as “Star Wars” characters die-cast cars arrived at Darth’s Mall on Saturday. They are considered open edition items and will be carried in multiple locations after Star Wars Weekends. Here are the item numbers that you could use if you wanted to contact our Merchandise Guest Services team:

The Star Wars image above is delightful! Is this available as a poster? Sadly, we did not get to attend Star Wars Weekends, but hopefully, the next time, we’ll be there.

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2013 at 12:49 pm

@Deborah – There is a poster (400007320246), a deluxe print (400007404229) and a giclee (400007404236) of the image. Please try contacting Merchandise Guest Services and reference the item numbers I provided.

Hey there. We will be at Hollywood Studios this weekend and was wondering if they were doing the carbonite statues like last year? For $99 you were made into a figure in carbonite.

Jennifer: they did a blog post about it.

I’ve got my appointment for this Sunday. I can’t wait! The blog says you only need 1 appt. if you want both figures, but the people on the phone said I needed two. I read her the blog and she said they had talked about that, but she hadn’t been told that was how they were going to do it. We’ll see!

 

Steven Miller on May 20th, 2013 at 12:52 pm

@Jennifer – Please see this article: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/05/star-wars-d-tech-me-experience-returns-to-star-wars-weekends-at-disneys-hollywood-studios-starting-may-17-2013/

My recommendation is to have an appointment for the experience (which it sounds like at least one “Jennifer” has one for Sunday). I would ask in person if you can get both figurines created. From my understanding, that shouldn’t be a challenge. I hope you have fun!
