Star Wars at Aldi from 8th December 2016 - includes the 6" Hero Scale Figures

For those who aren't aware, Hasbro has a second line of 6" figures that are akin to the larger Hero scale 12" figures. They are limited articulation and paint job, and sold at a budget price.

They have been sold officially in the UK once before, by Aldi last Christmas.

As of the 8th of December, they will be back on the shelves at Aldi for £6.99 each. Not only are we getting back the Force Awakens mix from last year (see our review here) but we are getting the "newer" releases that have already been available in the US and Far East. This means UK collectors can get their hands on Kanan, Jedi Luke, Han Solo, Darth Maul and Rey.

You can already order these online for dispatch on the 8th December. Basic delivery is free.

Be warned these figures are quite basic, and are closer to 5.5" scale than 6" so most will be slightly smaller than the Black Series. The troopers though do work as background figures for a larger First Order Army Display.

For 3.75" collectors, Aldi are also going to carry the new "basic" Star Wars ships that Hasbro have been talking about. These are apparently stripped down versions of the main range and are the Millennium Falcon. X-Wing and Tie Striker. Very little is known about these, but Aldi are listing them at about 200mm by 276mm as a box dimension - that puts them no bigger than 8" x 10.5" which is tiny for the Falcon. They will set you back £17.99
