The original announcement from Underground Toys for their new plush Max Rebo came on April 1st and we initially thought it was a joke, but that’s not so! Underground Toys will have their new electronic Max Rebo plush at the Celebration store during next week’s event in Anaheim.
We’re excited to announce the latest addition our electronic plush range, Max Rebo, launching at Star Wars Celebration 2015!
The eponymous keyboardist of the Max Rebo band has been recreated in plush with sound by the Underground Toys creative team.
We’ve focused on capturing the characters signature attributes; including his iconic instrument, unique facial features and ‘feet hands’.
At the push of a button, the Max Rebo plush will play extracts from Lapti Nek; as featured in the Jabba’s palace scene from the original Return of the Jedi movie.
Max Rebo is the latest addition to the expanding fan favorite range which includes the Wampa, Tauntaun and Jabba the Hutt, amongst others. These specialty characters sit alongside the more familiar core line up of Yoda, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and R2-D2.
A limited number of these embroidered editions have been produced and will be available for purchase at the Official Show Store at Star Wars Celebration, Anaheim.
