Star Wars science toys to hit shelves

Brainstorm is readying for the launch of its Star Wars Science collection into the UK.
Publish date:

The line includes the Star Wars Force Trainer, which features sound effects and exclusive Yoda training dialogue. Brainstorm says that the Force Trainer headset reads and interprets brainwaves, which are then translated into a digital signal, sent to the training tower and cause the Jedi Training Remote to rise and fall.

Other items in the collection include the Optical Command Unit, the Darth Vader Robotic Arm, the Jedi Telescope, Jedi Projector and the Mustafar Volcano Lab.

"There is so much anticipation of the launch of the Star Wars Science line," said Brainstorm's Rosanne Kenealy. "Just the mention of Star Wars is guaranteed to excite fans of all ages.

"This is technology that only previously existed in the realms of science fiction. The Force Trainer actually allows you to move an object with your mind."
