BREAKING NEWS! Hasbro To Produce Their Own Die Cast Metal Figures

Posted by Paul | July 15, 2016 at 08:46 AM ET

Well, this is interesting. Longtime collectors will probably remember that Titanium Metal Die Cast action figures from years ago. Probably in part due to the popularity of the Disney Elite Series figures, it appears that Hasbro is now following suit and producing their own Die Cast metal figures. We've learned about five Die Cast Metal figures coming. The scale is unknown, but presumably (we believe) they'll be in the 6" scale range since that is the trendy thing now, although that can't be confirmed at this point and 3.75" isn't ruled out. We do know that the packaging size is 2.5 x 5 x 7 inches if that gives you a better indication. We also don't know if they'll be painted in color (heaven help us if this is the case) or done in a more patina finish (which would give these figures vintage appeal). Interestingly, the characters are all based on Episode IV, which also gives good indication that these are to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. In other words, these may be released at the end of 2016/early 2017 to celebrate this monumental landmark event. We're also assuming that they will be under The Black Series banner since the helmets and miniature vehicles are. We could be wrong about that. Anyway, click through for the list. Once again, thank you to our Research Droids for leaking this information. And once we learn more, you'll learn more.
