Toy Fair 2013 : Star Wars Black Series
STAR WARS ® BLACK SERIES 6-INCH ACTION FIGURES
(Approximate retail price: $19.99; Ages: 4 & up; Available: Fall 2013)
In 2013, Hasbro takes collectible STAR WARS action figures to the next level with the introduction of the BLACK SERIES action figure line! For the first time ever, Hasbro is introducing a 6-inch scale of the greatest characters from the STAR WARS universe. This exceptional collection of figures features incredibly accurate design and a high level of articulation. Each sold separately.
There will be 8 Star Wars Black Series 6-inch action figures available in 2013, with the first wave—Luke, R2-D2, Darth Maul and a Sandtrooper—hitting in August.

For the 20 dollar price tag, there should be THREE TIMES as many accessories, a stand and a comic book. I know we are collectors and therefore willing to pay more for our toys, but that doesn't mean you SHOULD make us pay more. Adjust that price tag and you've got gold.
So...are they really going to charge $20 for a 6 inch scaled R2-D2?! I know you were thinking it.
