The Disney Store Launches New Star Wars Select 7-Inch Action Figure Line
For years, fans of Star Wars have asked for a line of 7-inch-scale Star Wars action figures, both for the added detail and the compatibility with other toy lines. The Disney Store has heard the demand, and has launched a new line of Star Wars Select action figures, made by Diamond Select Toys for the Disney Store!
The line kicks off on October 23 with two releases, Boba Fett and Darth Maul. Each figure stands approximately 7 inches tall with 16 points of articulation, and each comes with multiple interchangeable parts and effects.
Boba Fett, the galaxy’s most famous bounty hunter, is packed with accessories, including a blaster, blast effect, flamethrower effect, twin jet thruster effects, and alternate hands. Darth Maul, one of history’s deadliest Sith Lords, wields a twin-bladed lightsaber with removable blades, twirling blades, and a removable connector peg for double lightsaber action, and also includes alternate hands and a deflecting laser effect.
Both figures come packaged in the famous, display-ready Select action figure packaging, with side-panel artwork for shelf reference.
You’ve got to hand it to Diamond Select – they certainly know how to make an action figure. The company’s recent Ghostbusters line was wonderful and it produced some of the finest incarnations of the characters from The Real Ghostbusters animated series ever attempted. If these images are anything to go by, then Diamond Select is upping the ante with the Star Wars line at then some!
Darth Maul and Boba Fett will go up for order on shopdisney.com on October 23 and will be available in physical stores and Disney park locations on or around that date.
