New Angry Birds Star Wars II TELEPODs Leaked, Update Coming Soon!

Images from E-Bay and Facebook have been noticed by two ABN sleuths (@syberkus and @josm). These images show six new TELEPODs for Angry Birds Star Wars II. Found in what is called the Rebels vs. Villains Multi-Pack, these characters are:

  • Jabba the Hutt,
  • Tusken Raider (exclusive to this pack),
  • Carbonite Han Solo (exclusive to this pack),
  • Lando Calrissian,
  • Wicket W. Warrick, and
  • Royal Guard.

What is really means is that a new update should be coming soon, bringing at a minimum these six new character levels in the Reward Chapter of SW2. Remember that each character level in the Reward Chapter requires a certain amount of damage done by the title character. At this time, we do not know whether any of these characters will be playable under normal gameplay. It is possible that the only ways of unlocking these levels will be via TELEPOD or Character Swap usage.

Note: Since these are characters from the original trilogy and not the prequels, we believe the characters will only be playable via Character Swaps or TELEPODs.

When asked on Facebook, Rovio responded: “OMG! Those are top secret! Keep an eye out, we’ll have more to reveal soon…”

Beyond this, nothing left to do but speculate and hang tight. For example, what on Earth Tatooine will Carbonite Han have for an ability?!

For more information about the plethora of existing playable characters in SW2, see our Complete Characters Guide.

I think the power of Jabba the Hutt is similar to the power of Chewbacca.

By SomePigOutThere

I think he will eat the entire level as a power.

Saw these on Ebay a few days ago and write to Hasbro Customer Service this morning about the 2-Series telepods for ABSW2. They said they were not released yet to stores and they also are not listed on their website. They could not provide a date on their release. Their explanation was that this was a pre-release set or foreign market item.

I wrote the seller on Ebay and he said he found them in a Target store in southern California. He went to 10 other Target stores and did not see them yet.

I ordered them on eBay from seller located in Pennsylvania. I expect it delivered to my address in seven days. Hope that update will be released about same time.

Hmmm so if the Han Solo in carbonite and the tusken raider are exclusive that means we will get other sets with the royal guard lando calarissian wicket and jabba in other sets! I hope these other sets will be AWESOME!

By ryan

on the top left it says series 2 so it may be a new wave of figures!

So, according to the packaging, there’s gonna be a Series 3, 4, etc. The pork side figures look interesting. Especially Jabba. Han in carbonite looks awesome!

@syafi you don’t need to have US dollars for shopping on ebay and paying in US dollars currency. You need credit card valid in your country and your bank will make transfer for you in dollars and charge your account in your local currency.

So, could this update also mean something new in normal levels like a new episode? Or something even better? Don’t know yet, but can’t wait to know what else is new.

My theories
Jabba the Hutt: Crashes into blocks and enemies
Tuskin Raider (exclusive to this pack): throws out forks to attach enemies
Carbonite Han Solo (exclusive to this pack): Slides on the ground to attack enemies
Lando Calrissian: Shoots three lasers at once
Wicket W. Warrick: Throws a Big Drum
Royal Guard: Spins with his Fork

This is cool! Thanks for the update! You think Jabba will be like Wookie Terrance or will he just eat everything?

According to My Guess is Lando will have the same ability from he original game,The royal guards will get a single swipe lightsaber(maybe??) And Carbonite Han Solo’s ability may like be storm troopers.

Kit Fisto might be added as well. I saw him in the INGAME_BIRDS sprite sheet.

Avatar of SnTrooperRank: Champion with 3350 points
By SnTrooper (@sntrooper)

Really? They must have removed him since he isn’t there now. There is a Shock Trooper though.

Avatar of RizDubRank: Slinger with 1140 points
By RizDub (@rizdub)

Actually the Shocktrooper/Clonetrooper has been there since release date. I’m looking at the most recent update for ABSWII – 1.2.6. Jabba, the red Royal Guard, and Kit Fisto are all there. (Lando, carbonite Han, Wicket, and Tusken Raider are not, though).

Oh, neat. Obviously your version is farther along than the PC version.

and where can i watch these files?

Avatar of SnTrooperRank: Champion with 3350 points
By SnTrooper (@sntrooper)

For the PC they are just in the images folder where the game was installed (Most likely “program files/Rovio Entertainment Ltd/Angry Birds Star Wars II/data/images”) You only need the demo.

I have no idea how to see them on a mobile device.

Just picked up this pack at Target and other comments were right. Kit Fisto and Shock Trooper are the other two available in series 2.
