We know what certain Jedi Masters have to say about judging by size, but this is definitely an exception to the rule.
Introducing Star Wars Black Series from Hasbro. The world’s first collection of 6″ Star Wars action figures.
Star Wars Black Series sets out to capture the quintessential characters and scenes from the Star Wars saga — legendary moments in time brought back to life in excruciatingly accurate detail. Go ahead and picture it. Luke Skywalker has just climbed down out of his X-wing fighter with helmet in hand after destroying the Death Star. Massive hangar doors slide open to reveal a sinister Darth Maul, prepared for an epic lightsaber battle on Naboo. These are the kinds of memories that are burned into the hearts and minds of every Star Wars fan. That’s why each figure is highly articulated and comes with the right accessories, so that fans can pose them to recapture these classic Star Wars scenes.
The color black has been synonymous with Star Wars since its inception back in the late ’70s. It’s a symbol of great quality that is reserved for high-end collector expressions, so it was a natural choice for this line’s moniker and packaging style — a sleek, minimally-etched, black box that allows the figures to speak for themselves. In short, its sexy. Slave Leia sexy.
Hasbro is releasing eight 6″ Star Wars Black Series figures this Fall, with the first four — Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Darth Maul, and Sandtrooper– hitting stores early August. Be on the lookout and may the Force be with you.
