The other day, Big Bad Toy Store posted listings for several new products from Bioware Merchandising. Included were several backpacks, a couple wallets and two sets of Lightsaber earrings.
Unlike the backpacks we’ve seen from Comic Images, Bioware’s versions have more standard features and shapes while using graphics and colors to create a Star Wars look that we’re familiar with. While two versions, R2-D2 and Stormtrooper, look like the characters from the films, the Galactic Empire, Mandalorians Icon and Rebel Alliance Icon packs are more subtle.
The Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance wallets also use subtle graphics and colors to pull off their looks. While we’ve seen Lightsaber earrings on Etsy and other craft sites, those are frequently made from Lego elements while Bioware’s versions, in green and red, use more traditionally shaped hilts and opaque blades.
Prices range from $7.99 on the earrings to $16.99 on the wallets and mid to upper $50s for the backpacks. Pre-orders are available from BigBadToyStore.com with estimated releases in July and August.
