FINALLY!

I only collect 1:12th scale and thus own zero Hasbro Star Wars figures. This is a dream come true!

I think you've made a very good point here... There's really no way to do these and keep articulation for a lot of the characters without using soft-goods...

Exactly. With the Jedi all having 2 looks, essentially, duel and cloaked, it'd be really annoying if always had to buy 2 or 3 in some cases if they appeared with the hood up. And, yes, it makes no sense to pack on the articulation if you stifle it.

I would think that the scale lends itself to better executed soft goods.

I think if you're still jazzed about the 3 3/4" line (which I am), its hard to get super excited about the 6" line. I mean, there's no doubt that detail and stuff will be superior. But the 3 3/4" line has come so far and the figures are so solid (for the scale) that I'm more than content. Totally understand, though, that there are lots of action figure collectors who prefer 6" and have been hoping for a Star Wars line in that scale. So I'm totally excited for them! And, of course, I will by my pet favorites. 'Cause that's how we do :D I think its really good timing for this line and I hope it is successful.

My other big worry is the 19.99 price point-- just because we know Star Wars fans will pay any price- that unaturally inflate the price of any collectible of similar type on the market (trading cards, Kubricks, Lego sets etc.)

And I would wonder as Hasbro (and even Mattel)- would take that as a sign that the world will readily pay 20 bucks a piece for a 6" scale figure..--

I've always been a cherry-pick guy with SW, and the 6" scale will be no different. But I'm definitely in as that Luke looks amazing.

Wow. That's about as obscure as you can get. Didn't that guy die after one panel? :lol:


LOL Hey, he lasted an entire page of the comic (well, almost the entire page) :mrgreen:

Lots and lots of comic art commissions. I've been pretty busy lately. But it's been a good busy. Seems like most everyone is pleased with the Hasbro reveals at TF. I know I am. :mrgreen:

These seem to be exceptionally well designed. Can that really be delivered at retail?

From the pictures, I can't really work out how Darth Maul's costume change works. Does the cowl contain a separate, immobile head?

Thank you, comrade. Any idea whether Luke's gear harness is removable?
