Over the last few weeks we’ve been reporting on the existence of a ‘Select’ line of Star Wars figures from Diamond Select Toys with both Boba Fett being found at Disney Stores in the US and just last night, Darth Maul winding up in London- Oxford Street here in the UK.
Well, we now have the full press release of information, images & links-to-buy too which give us a much clearer idea of the figures as if there was any doubt left. That said though, it’s hugely exciting for another line to enter into the Star Wars scene and whilst these will be larger than Black Series figures from Hasbro, they will no doubt turn collectors heads especially if they continue to pick fan-favourite characters – that Boba is as good as ours!
Here are the direct links to order these from Disney Stores online with them officially due to hit stores from today, October 23rd with a list price of $24.99:
Official Diamond Select Press Release :
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.
Darth Maul and Boba Fett will go up for orders on shopdisney.com on October 23, and will be available in physical stores and Disney park locations on or around that date.
