New Star Wars 40th Anniversary Hasbro Announcements

Okay so here is something to chew on. We knew Hasbro was going back to Titanium figures but this time they will be in 3.75″ scale. These figures are NON POSEABLE and will feature Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo These figures will also feature accessories like FX pieces for their weapons, as well as their own special backdrops. “The backdrops include two different inserts, a backdrop from the movies, and also character art that can be connected to other Titanium series figure stands to complete the full scene.”- io9-Gizmodo.com

While im not not a fan of non movable figures these do look good. I sure hope Hasbro has something else planned for 3.75″ collectors though. Now onto the Black….

“The 6-inch Black Series figures will be getting their own line of figurines called the “Centerpiece” range.  These will be static figurines of characters in dynamic poses on special stands, made to look like recreations of key moments from films across the saga.”

“The lavish new scenery bases will include light and sound effects to make each figurine even more of a display piece. The line will kick off with a new version of Luke in his pilot gear from Empire Strikes Back, and each figure will sell for $50.”- io9-Gizmodo.com

I guess you can call this Unleashed 2.0 and Im down with that but that price point sucks. Still, I will buy them!

Now for the props- it looks like we are going to get Obi-Wan Kenobi’s lightsaber this fall. Still, something new to look for! The last item is a new Monopoly game. Im not a table top gamer so this one does nothing for me but I know people who will love this piece.
