George Lucas is an action figure

Star Wars creator George Lucas has been turned into an action figure by Hasbro.

The 6-inch figure, part of the Black Series toy line, is the Bearded One in classic original trilogy Stormtropper armour, along with a removable helmet and blaster.

The figure will be released in 2022, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the launch of Lucasfilm.

“As a lifelong Star Wars fan, I have both the honour and privilege to bring characters from the franchise to life in product form every single day,” said Vickie Stratford, senior director of product design at Hasbro.

“When the opportunity came to design the George Lucas figure, we were especially excited for this project. This figure is just one of the many ways we can honour his legacy for years to come, and we hope fans cherish it as much as we did.”

Lucas has previously been immortalised in plastic, in 2006 he appeared as a 3.75-inch Stormtrooper for Hasbro’s Saga Collection toy line.
