Star Wars is forever, and Hasbro celebrates the legacy with their 2014 Star Wars Black Series 6 inch figures. Star Wars action figures have typically come in 12" scale or 3 3/4" scale for longer than anyone can remember. Though, this past year Hasbro decided to try something different, make 6 inch versions of everyone's favorite Star Wars characters. It turns out that it was a success.
In 2014 the Star Wars Black Series 6" releases are only going to get better than the 2013 releases. First of all Hasbro is going to be giving the figures new packaging, which will be more open and has an imperial theme with a Stormtrooper head. Apart from the packaging changing, Hasbro plans to release 3 waves of 6 inch figures this year, and that's not including the two new 'deluxe' figures that will arrive this Fall.
The first wave of 2014, which is likely shipping now, contains Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker and the fan loved Stormtrooper. The 2nd and 3rd waves of 2014 (or waves 4 and 5) feature many of the characters which were rumored to be part of the 6 inch line late last year. In wave 2 you can look forward to Anakin Skywalker (EP3), Chewbacca (EP4) and the Clone Trooper (EP4). Wave 3 will contain Darth Vader (EP5), Luky Skywalker (EP5), and another Sandtrooper, but this time with a black shoulder cauldron.
If those 3 new waves of figures wasn't enough, Hasbro is also going to release 2 'deluxe' 6 inch figures in 2014, Jabba the Hutt and the Speeder Bike Scout with bike. The best news of all, these new 'deluxe' figures are only going to set you back $40, which is only double the price of a normal figure.
