Hasbro is creating a 6-inch action figure of George Lucas as a stormtrooper. It will be part of its Black Series line of premium action figures, and will be part of its Lucasfilm’s 50th anniversary line. Entertainment Earth has this figure available now as a preorder for $26.99. They are scheduled for release in March of 2020.
If you ask me, it looks kind of weird. George Lucas is far too old to be a ground-pounder, front line combat troop. Once he whips off that helmet and you see his flowing mane of gray hair, he looks like a confederate Civil War general.
I just looked George Lucas up on Wikipedia. It says he is 77 years old. That’s far too old to be in service of the Empire as a stormtrooper. What’s this stormtrooper say lying on the battlefield, dying from a blaster shot? “Tell my great grandchildren I love them.”
They should make the figure depicting George Lucas the way he looked when he made the original Star Wars movie. That would make a lot more sense.
Instead of making the 1977 version of George Lucas, Hasbro went with the Robert E. Lee version of George Lucas. I find that to be an odd choice. That doesn’t mean I won’t buy one. I just think it’s odd.
