"The LEGO and Star Wars brands have millions of fans spanning all ages. Eidos has put together an integrated TV, retail, print and on-line campaign that offers both extensive reach and frequency", says Paul Baldwin, Vice President of Marketing Communications. "This campaign is targeted at Lego and Star Wars fans everywhere. You will not be able to turn on your TV or walk into a store without seeing the product advertised."

Eidos is running two TV spots for LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game on child friendly networks including Fox, ABC Family, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Toon Disney, and WB Kids.

Both TV spots are backed by original Star Wars movie music, also featured throughout the game.
