Upcoming: Galactic Heroes Jabba the Hutt to Return in Jedi Force Line?
Lots of news from Toy Fair 2013 today (this time via Rebelscum). I couldn’t help but notice that the Galactic Heroes Jabba the Hutt and Gamorrean Guard figures (from the Jabba’s Palace set) and the Han in Carbonite figure (from a two-pack with Boushh) were included in Hasbro’s lineup of Jedi Force figures for 2013. Jedi Force, as you may recall, is a line of figures that took the place of Galactic Heroes last year. The figures are similar in size to Galactic Heroes but have moveable arms, legs and heads. They’ve been reusing some of the Galactic Heroes vehicles in the line, and now it appears that they’re going to be recycling some of the same exact figures as well.
According to The Rockfather, they will be available starting in the fall in a “Jabba’s Palace Rescue Adventure Pack,” which will include 6 figures and retail for $19.99. While I’d prefer a new sculpt for these, the Galactic Heroes Jabba is one of my favorites and it’s nice to know that it’ll be available again.
