PostSubject: Star Wars Black - 6'' Action Figure Range   Tue Jan 29, 2013 1:14 pm

So, some interesting news. As Doctor Who gets smaller, Star Wars gets larger!

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2013/01/29/hasbro-star-wars-black-series-action-figure-toys/1872035/

They are aimed more at adult collectors. I actually might pick some of these up, and I don't collect Star Wars figures. I'm a little uninspired by the first few selections, though.

Quote :
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.

I am really excited for these! Very Happy agreed, the selection of characters for the first wave is a bit odd. X-Wing Luke? Darth Maul? Either way I will definitely be picking these up, I am really happy that they're finally doing these - I love the 3.75" scale but I've always wanted SW figures that are in scale with my Who figures (I know, Who is getting smaller now but still Razz).

cheers

I guess if they had to pick a prequel character Darth Maul is a good one. He's probably the only one I'd buy in this line.

So, Doctor Who goes to Star Wars scale, and Star Wars goes to Doctor Who scale...ish? Will be interesting to see these side by side.

They're $19.99 each!

Sheesh! That's more than the Dr Who figures! Shame on Hasbro. They shouldn't be that `spensive.

And there's me kidding myself that I was out of the Star Wars world.

Anyone want to buy my Power Of The Force figures so I can use the money to get these?

The first wave of four, due out in early to mid-August, includes Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing Fighter flight suit, fan-favourite droid R2-D2, bad guy Darth Maul and an Imperial Sandtrooper.

$19.99, ouch!

Until they get figures of Leia and Han Solo, I'm not terribly interested in this first wave.

Oh and if they make Ewoks, sold!

Darth Vader, Luke, Han, Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO, Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, Ben Kenobi, the Emperor, Yoda, Boba Fett and Bossk are all must-haves for me, especially the first four. Very Happy

Well I guess considering his recent appearances in the Clone Wars series it makes sense for them to make a figure of him. Nonetheless, I'd have thought Vader would have trumped Maul and been released first.

Ah well, I'll most likely pick up all four anyhow. I won't be able to get enough of these! Very Happy

I figure about 2 dozen I want. This Luke, well, next to 10th Dr in HIS orange jumpsuit....

Wait, if they are dipping into the other films, then maybe 3 dozen.

I will get Vader. But I already have all of these in smaller scale. Not rich enough to double dip, especially at 20 bucks each.

I want:

C3PO
R2D2
Han
Leia (white dress)
Luke (first film)
Luke (ROTJ with black cloak)
Darth Vader
Storm Trooper
Yoda
Darth Maul
Chewie

That might be it, actually. For that price at this scale. I can't see getting a huge, full collection.
