It should come as no surprise after we hinted at this
back in December and then posted about a possible 6" line
yesterday, but USAToday.com
reports that Hasbro will be producing a brand new 6" scale action figure line based on Original Trilogy characters with a few key Prequel characters as well.
Priced at $19.99, these 6" action figures will be more detailed and more articulated than the current 3 3/4" scale line.
The first of four waves is scheduled for an early to mid-August release and includes an Imperial Sandtrooper, Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot), R2-D2 and Darth Maul.
The current 3 3/4" Vintage Collection line will also continue under the new Black Series name.
