Star Wars 1/12 Kits & Figures : complementing the Black Series

While Hasbro's Black Series is the dominating 6" range of Star Wars Action Figures on the market, there are a number of other manufacturers who create 1/12 scale figures and kits that can and will complement the Black Series line.

This page is not an exhaustive list of reviews for all these ranges, but serves to review the various 1/12 figures I have purchased to supplement my own Black Series collection.

In the UK the 6" Hero Series Budget Figures were sold first by Aldi stores. The first five were sold in December 2015 and re-released in December 2016 alongside the second group of five figures. A Deathtrooper figure was also sold in Canadian stores. A further four figures were released December 2017 in The Last Jedi packaging. 

Lidl re-released 5 of the 2016 figures in 2017 and included the elusive Deathtrooper. (Kylo, Vader, Rey, Finn & Stormtrooper).

Lidl would go on to release the line again in 2019, adding a Chewbacca figure to the line up.

Smyths Toy Superstores would carry the line in the early months of 2020 with re-releases of Jedi Luke, Han Solo and Darth Maul. Interestingly they also had the Han Solo from Solo A Star Wars Story, a debut for this figure in the UK
