Hasbro Announces 6-Inch Star Wars "Black Series"
Eight Figures Planned in 2013...
USA Today reports that Hasbro will be releasing the Star Wars Black Series this year, beginning a new assortment 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 X-Wing Fighter Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Darth Maul and an Imperial Sandtrooper.
"We consider them the best figures that Hasbro's ever produced for Star Wars that meets the sensibilities of romancing the character as well as the playability and poseability that fans really appreciate," said Derryl DePriest, Hasbro vice president of boys marketing.
