Hasbro offered fans in the media a first look at the tie-in toys for Rovio's upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars game at its annual New York Comic-Con preview party. As you can see in the images above and after the jump, a fair assortment of characters from the classic series have been Angry Birds-ified. The Death Star never looked so adorable.
The game itself was unfortunately not available for public showings, but expect it to borrow heavily from the mechanics of Angry Birds Space. This isn't a bad thing at all. You've also probably noticed that the toys pictured here all connect with the Original Trilogy, and that's no coincidence. It's probably inevitable that this Rovio/Hasbro partnership will explore the Prequel Trilogy, and possibly even the Clone Wars TV series, but the kickoff for Angry Birds Star Wars will focus solely on the three movies that launched the franchise.
The Angry Birds Star Wars app arrives on November 8, 2012, but you'll be able to start collecting the toys even sooner, as they're expected to hit store shelves by late October.
