Star Wars geeks seem not to be too picky with what they add sci-fi qualities to. They're even geeked up Mickey Mouse. To be honest, Disney does Star Wars should come as no surprise. And this comes from someone who is not a nerdy George Lucas fan.
Disney and Lucas Arts have worked together to create these figurines which cost $200 each and are a fusion of Disney and Star Wars characters. I deliver you the following joyous characters:
Mickey Mouse as Luke (no brainer)
Minnie Mouse as Queen Amidala
Donald Duck as Darth Maul
Goofy as a confused Jar Jar Binks
But alas, where is Darth Vader? He rules, and if I had to cosy up with one Star Wars character, then he would be it.
