The press release reads in part:
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.
Both the Star Wars Select Boba Fett and Darth Maul are currently available on shopdisney.com for $24.99. I’m still not sure about pulling the trigger on another scale of Star Wars action figures, although the Darth Maul head sculpt is strongly tempting me to give it a try.
