Here is the first look at Hasbro's newest Star Wars line, an 8 inch collection of figures called Star Wars Hyper Real. The line will still fall under the Black Series banner, but will be a 1/9 scale rather than the 1/12 we are used too.
The figures are obviously aimed towards the higher end market and to achieve this Vader has soft goods robes and a neat diorama display base. He will be armed with his lightsaber and has a number of hand options, including one with a force FX piece attached.
The Hyper Real line features a metal armature skeleton under a soft pliable body, this gives it more realistic articulation and movement with the idea of allowing these figures to pose in poses seen in the movies.
Hasbro will keep the line to one or two releases a year. The next will be announced at Star Wars Celebration and is rumoured to be an Empire Strikes Back Luke Skywalker.
