Forum member PROVOST gave us a heads up on a news story at USA Today. They have posted a story revealing the Star Wars Black Series Action Figures. These are 6″ figures that will featured detailed sculpts and paint jobs as well as detailed articulation! Here’s some quotes from the story:
“After 35 years of fantastic plastic standing tall in pop culture at 3¾ inches, Hasbro is releasing the Star Wars Black Series this year, beginning a new set of 6-inch figures that will feature more articulation and an increased attention to detail.
Priced at $19.99 each, eight figures are planned for 2013 – Hasbro will primarily draw characters from the original Star Wars trilogy of films while also bringing in key players from the prequels.
The first wave of four, due out in early to mid-August, includes Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing Fighter flight suit, fan-favorite droid R2-D2, bad guy Darth Maul and an Imperial Sandtrooper.
The current “vintage”-style line of 3¾ figures will also continue under the Black Series banner.”
