Star Wars basic 6 inch figures heading back to Lidl for 2019 Xmas Toy Event

In 2015, Hasbro launched a budget range of Star Wars figures to create merchandise for discount stores for The Force Awakens. The line was made up of figures made to a 6 inch height and not scale - meaning regardless of character, they were all the same size.


The figures were hollow hard plastic with average but neat paint jobs and between 3 and 5 points of basic articulation.


2015 saw releases of The First Order Stormtrooper, Snowtrooper, Kylo Ren, Finn and Darth Vader. In 2016 the line was expanded to Darth Maul, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Kanan Jarus and a Deathtrooper - Rey got a re-release. 2017 saw the addtion of a pretty impressive C-3PO as well as Captain Phasma - Rey was once again re-released as was the First Order Stormtrooper.


In 2019 we have another batch of these to look forward to at UK discount retailer Lidl. The majority of the 2019 offerings are repacks - but there looks to be a brand new Chewbacca figure this time round, with the dual bandoleer he wore in Solo.


The figures will be in Lidl stores from the 21st of November priced at £4.99 each. As yet we don't know if the packaging will be updated for 2019 or use one of the previous designs.
