Whether you’re into the 6″ scale ‘Star Wars Black Series’, or you prefer the classic 3.75″ scale line, the team at Hasbro had something awesome on hand for you at Toy Fair! Here’s the full rundown…
‘Star Wars: The Black Series’ 6″ Figures
For the ‘Star Wars: The Black Series’, we saw a surprisingly low number of figures. This can probably be attributed to the fact that a new wave just hit stores last month featuring ‘Farmboy’ Luke, and Jango Fett among others. Still, any new ‘Black Series’ news is good news! We’ve got four new figures revealed for the line, and they’re coming in from nearly every corner of the ‘Star Wars’ universe!
From ‘Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope’, we are finally going to get our hands on Princess Leia Organa, hair buns and all! From the not too distant future in ‘Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back’ we are going to be seeing a classic styled Snowtrooper straight out of the battle of Hoth! Taking things outside of the movies and into the expanded universe, we’ve got two new fan favorite characters that people literally demanded be made! These two were the winners of this years ‘Star Wars Fan Poll’ from back at SDCC 2015, and now we’ll be getting 6″ scale realistic looking figures of Darth Revan (‘Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic’) and Sabin (Star Wars: Rebels’).
‘Star Wars’ 3.75″ Line
With these new reveals from their ‘Star Wars’ line, it’s beginning to look more and more like Hasbro is dedicated to giving fans a healthy blend of both the new and the old in the ‘Star Wars’ universe, which is definitely great news!
