Finally realizing that the kids that bought their toys in the 80s are now adults that are STILL buying toys (in the…aughts? …teens? What the hell do we call this decade?); Hasbro has announced that they’re going to be releasing an adult collector line of “Star Wars” figures.
The Black Series will clock in at 6-inches and feature better details and articulation than the (increasingly unarticulated) 3.75-inch figs. And unlike those Hot Toys figures you see coming out of Japan, these will only set you back $20 instead of $200. Yay for mass marketing! The first wave will include X-Wing Luke, R2-D2, Darth Maul (grumble), and an Imperial Sandtrooper.
All we’ve seen so far is Luke; but damn if this isn’t the prettiest Luke action figure I’ve ever laid my eyes on.
If the Sandtrooper looks half as good, I’m buying an entire troop. Release Dewbacks to go with them and I’ll buy a freaking platoon.
