Presenting some hi-res detailed photos of the new and upcoming Movie Heroes Bespin Battle and Duel On Naboo Battle Packs. More figure, less action? You won't get too much poseability with 5-8 points of articulation, but they are undoubtedly new sculpts. The Obi-Wan headsculpt even looks amazing in these photos. But will collectors rejoice or gripe? Stay tuned, but in the meantime, enjoy!
We can talk about more big vehicles because that always makes us happy. And why is Hasbro packing hot figures at one per box? Because they also pack not-hot ones at one per box.
