Star Wars 6 inch Budget Hero line at Lidl, 2019

Updated: Nov 25, 2019

The Star Wars 6 inch Budget Hero line from Hasbro has been in place since 2015 when The Force Awakens hit cinema's. The line is made for budget stores and here in the UK is carried by Aldi and Lidl stores.

We have had releases in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and across these three years we have had 13 characters released.

After skipping 2018, the 2019 line is stocked by Lidl - releasing across all stores on the 21st November. The figures are priced at £4.99 each.

The 2019 figures are packed with 6 characters to a case and 5 of these are re-releases in new boxes. We have reviewed each of these figures in previous years, and you can check these out via the links below.


Luke Jedi Knight

Darth Vader

Kylo Ren

First Order Stormtrooper

The new 2019 boxes feature a white box with black Star Wars logo. Character art appears on the side and the back and there is also some basic character text down the right spine. For some reason the Rey figure carries a warning on the front of the box, while all the other figures have the warnings down the rear of the box.

The only new figure for the UK 2019 is Chewbacca who we review here

Chewie has had a limited release in 2018 in a Solo themed box. It did not make it to the UK.
