Adding to its slate of commemorative action figures to celebrate 50 years of Lucasfilm, Hasbro has announced (via The Hollywood Reporter) that it is producing a special figure of George Lucas for its Black Series line. Aimed at collectors, the Black Series figures allow for more detail because they are bigger in scale at 6-inches tall.
As such, the “George Lucas (in Stormtrooper disguise)” figure — which depicts Lucas in all of his grey-haired glory — will mark the first time the director has been produced as a Black Series figure. Previously, younger versions of Lucas have appeared in 3¾” form as an X-Wing fighter pilot, a “Star Wars” convention exclusive, and a Stormtrooper as a mail-away exclusive. Hasbro is making the new Lucas figure — which comes with a removable helmet and blaster — available to collectors in 2022 through an exclusive arrangement with Amazon.
“When the opportunity came to design the George Lucas figure, we were especially excited for this project, said Hasbro senior director of product design Vicky Stratford in a statement on StarWars.com. “This figure is just one of the many ways we can honor his legacy for years to come, and we hope fans cherish it as much as we did.”
