Motorola to launch limited edition Star Wars Style Mod

A Few months back Motorola and Lenovo announced the variety of special edition Moto-Mods to commemorate the the release of the Transformers: The Last Knight. And this time they are planning to offer limited addition of Star Wars Style Mod, which are likely to be available in limited numbers.

The Star Wars Limited Edition Moto Style Mod looks Insanely cool and I really can't wait to attach one of those to my Moto Z Play. The Overall package will be available in ¥129 (19.50USD).


Let me be perfectly clear, Just like Transformers Moto-Mods, Motorola plans to sell the Star Wars Style Mod in the China only and there's no indication if or when it will come to other regions. There's also likely to be a limited number available, so if you want one, better start looking on how to import products from China or those who can make it to the China, it would be great if you can bring me one too when available.
Motorola is expected to launch the Star Wars Limited Edition Moto Style Mod in a few weeks. That said, we will let you know if Motorola plans to release these special edition Moto-Mods in any other regions. How bad you want one of these for your Moto Z? Let us know in the below comment section!
