Star Wars Weekends 2009 Big Figs Now Available for Pre-Order

Retailing at $195.00, each member of the final edition of the Disney Star Wars Big Figures is being offered in a limited edition of 600. 500 pieces will be available at Walt Disney World with the remaining 100 at the Disneyland resort.

The figures are set to be released during the second weekend of Star Wars Weekends (May 29-31) but the resort is accepting pre-orders now. Availability to pre-orders is extremely limited, so order today. Once allocated pre-orders have been sold, remaining buyers will be placed on a wish list for any figures not sold after SWW ends.

I apologize for the inconvenience some of you have reported in regards to downloading the free Star Wars Weekends screensaver, but I appreciate you bringing to my attention.
