Rovio announces an epic sequel: Angry Birds: Star Wars 2, will introduce collectible 'telepod' figures
Set to launch on September 19, the next iteration of probably-the-most-successful-mobile-game-ever will continue the Star Wars saga and feature over 30 “never-before-seen” characters from its universe.

Speaking of characters, the Disney-wannabe has taken its merchandising effort to the next level – collectible 'telepod' figures will be available from Hasbro – Rovio says that placing the telepod on top of a smartphone's or a tablet's camera will prompt the app to scan it directly into the game. Pretty awesome stuff.
We may soon have a winner at our hands, for the Finnish-based company has taken a cue from its Bad Piggies spinoff – Angry Birds: Star Wars 2 will also allow you to choose your side!
Without any further ado, treat yourself to a Chewie-smashing-Darth Vader type action in the video below:
