Hasbro has revealed the new classic themed Black Series Star Wars toys that they will be releasing this spring for the film’s 40th anniversary.
In keeping with the nostalgia theme of the 1977 original trilogy, Hasbro will be packaging the figures in the classic “bubble and card”. The series will include Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Han Solo, R2D2 and Ben Kenobi.
I fondly remember my first Star Wars toys. It was on the very next Christmas after the release of the 1977 film. An X-Wing and a Luke Skywalker action figure! I was inseparable from them. Inspired by the classic Star Wars Kenner Toys commercials, I can still remember the many adventures that “Luke and his X-Wing” had on many planets around the galaxy all while evading the evil Empire! Well, maybe the galaxy was really my backyard but the adventures were many. Even though I can’t get past all the articulation in the modern day figures, preferring the older style, these 40th anniversary toys bring back my childhood memories.
