Deluxe Star Wars Black action figures

USA Today:

Premiering this year, Hasbro's 6-inch "Star Wars" Black Series line of action figures features characters from the original trilogy of films. 
"Our focus here is the adult collector, the dad," DePriest says. "We know they have their own generation of youngsters they like to share the adventure with. It can be something for dad, and the 3¾ world can be something for the kids to share."


  1. Even in a six inch scale they still can't sculpt a decent likeness of Luke.

    Odd that the Doctor Who toy line just announced they're going to a 3 3/4" Star Wars scale, and now Star Wars is going to a 6" Doctor Who scale (OK, the Who toys were 5", but still).

    1. I think it looks pretty good. I just can't imagine that there's someone still hungering for a Luke Skywalker figure.

  2. I agree, the sculpt looks great. I'm looking forward to getting a few of these, but out of the first four I'm only interested in the original trilogy characters.
