Given that the Star Wars film franchise is between movies at the moment, it wasn’t surprising to see Hasbro’s offerings for the Star Wars Black Series dialed back just a bit. The Last Jedi is still 10 months away, and with Force Friday II coming in September, it’s going to be a few more months until we learn everything about this year’s Star Wars Black plans. However, 2017 is the 40th anniversary of the celebrated sci-fi franchise, and Hasbro isn’t letting that go unnoticed.
To commemorate the anniversary of A New Hope‘s release, Hasbro is putting out a collection of the original 12 figures that launched toy collecting as we know it today. The “12 back” figures are coming back in 6″ Black Series style, and they’re coming in blister packaging that calls back to that Kenner design of old.
