Star Wars Joins the Marvel Mashers Toy Line

My son spends hours playing with his Marvel Super Hero Mashers toys from Hasbro.  These action figures let kids take their favorite super heroes and mix and match body parts and accessories to create their own unique characters.  Create Spider Hulk wielding the power of Mjölnir, Iron Wolvernine carrying Captain America's shield or a variety of other mash-ups based upon the action figures you collect.

Based upon the popularity of these toys, Hasbro is adding Star Wars to its lineup of Mashers toys in the Fall of 2015.  The Star Wars Mashers will include characters from the original and prequel movies like Anakin Skywalker, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, and General Grevious plus a few from the new animated television show Rebels such as Kanan and Zeb.  Just think of the possible variations:  an android General Fett wielding a variety of light sabers, a Zeb trooper wearing imperial battle armor, or dare I say it Darth Jar Jar. 

I have a feeling that my son is going to be finding some Star Wars Mashers under the Christmas Tree this year.

  1. Cool unique concept. What a great way for kids to create something more interesting from the already great characters.
