Our 4th award to be given out is the Biggest Surprise. With the evolution of technology, it is getting harder and harder to keep certain items, especially when many toy companies give stories to big media, like USA Today & MTV, to publish in the weeks leading to Toy Fair. However, this year was able to keep something under wraps, and completely blow us away at Toy Fair, Star Wars: The Black Series Deluxe Jabba the Hutt & Biker Scout with Speeder!
The 6-inch Star Wars: The Black Series has been bittersweet to most. We all love the additional detail & articulation that the 6-inch format allows, but there is no chance that Hasbro will be able to produce the amount of characters that we all want, and with a hefty price tag, it’s hard to imagine the 6-inch format to be around for the long term. However, Hasbro is making use of the time they have with the line while it lasts! The Deluxe line up for now just includes 2 figures, Jabba & the Biker Scout, but boy do they pack a punch. The Biker Scout comes with the full Speeder Bike, including a clear base to keep the illusion of elevation. Not only that, but the base is articulated, so you can have the Bike slanting up, down, or sideways! Jabba does not include any special accessory, but really, why would he (except maybe Salacious!). However, when you move his arms, his mouth does move, as if he is talking….or chewing.
Hasbro, you got us, and we thank you for it!
