It will celebrate 50 years of Lucasfilm, its production company.

While the very first film of the saga Star wars Episode IV: a new hope will celebrate its 44th anniversary this year, the toy brand Hasbro has announced the imminent arrival of a figurine bearing the effigy of George Lucas, famous creator and director of the saga, in a Stormtrooper costume.

Fan Restores Star Wars Trilogy Without George Lucas’ Controversial Changes

Called “The Bearded One”, this figurine of more than 15 cm presents Lucas in armor, with helmet or without, revealing his very recognizable beard. “This action figure is just one of the many ways we can honor its legacy for years to come, and we hope fans cherish it as much as we did,” explains Vickie Stratford, senior director of product design at Hasbro.

Edited for the fiftieth anniversary of his production company Lucasfilm, the figurine is part of the Star Wars Black Series collection which already offers many collections for fans of the universe Star wars, including a vintage edition of Boba Fett.

Just announced by the toy company, The Bearded One will be available for sale in 2022, so fans will have to wait before getting their hands on it. However, pre-sales will open today at 7 p.m. on Amazon.

Note that this figurine is not the Creator’s first (“The Maker”), since Lucas already came to life as a collector’s toy in 2002 and 2006.
