Hasbro announces Star Wars Black Series



Hasbro and Gentle Giant are set to release a new series of 6" action figures later this year.

Under the banner of Star Wars Black Series. The first wave, due out in the summer, includes Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing Fighter flight suit, R2-D2, Darth Maul and an Imperial Sandtrooper.

"We consider them the best figures that Hasbro's ever produced for 'Star Wars' that meets the sensibilities of romancing the character as well as the playability and poseability that fans really appreciate," says Derryl DePriest, Hasbro vice president of boys marketing.

Where's Boba Fett? Fret not! He's tipped as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive.
