Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Did you hear about the upcoming line of 12" Star Wars figures?

5 points of articulation and their weapons will be molded into their hands.

I'm not joking. Hasbro's people claim they're going for the feel of the original, classic 12" figures from the late seventies. But I dunno, in this day and age people expect a lot more from 12" dolls and figures than just neck, shoulder and hip joints and a weapon or accessory they can't remove from the character's hand without breaking one or both.

On the bright side, they'll retail for only $14.99 each. Which doesn't say a lot about their quality in and of itself, but I digress.

So far only four are planned: Revenge of the Sith Anakin, an Episode II Clone Trooper, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader. I guess they'll wait and see how these do before greenlighting other characters.
