Inside Hasbro’s Awesome 40th Anniversary Star Wars Black Series Figures

0

Star Wars turns 40 this year, and Hasbro is celebrating in just about the most perfect way: its critically-acclaimed 6-inch Black Series figures are going right back to where it all started, both for Star Wars as a cultural force and for Star Wars toys.

Hasbro revealed a special 40th anniversary Black Series wave this weekend at New York Toy Fair 2017 — 12 figures in all, consisting of the same lineup that Kenner launched the original Star Wars line with in 1977 — featuring vintage packaging, select upgrades, and a few surprises (spoiler: the Early Bird Kit strikes back, and it’s amazing). With the figures set for a spring release, StarWars.com e-mailed with Steve Evans, director, Design and Development for Star Wars at Hasbro, to talk about this special series that (to borrow a line from A New Hope) will be long-remembered.
