Size Matters Not, we are assured, with Star Wars Micro Force – a new line of blind-bag figures taking a cuter look at that galaxy far, far away. Wave One was just recently released in December and we got our hands on a few of them, so let’s take a quick look!
In each pouch of Micro Force, you’ll find two tiny Star Wars characters standing about 1-inch tall. THAT’S TINY. But for $2.99, that’s $1.50 per figure, so not the end of the world and it won’t break the bank. The figures are squishy so definitely don’t recommend for any children younger than 4 years old.
Wave 1, just released consists of twelve characters:
-Han Solo (Hoth)
-Anakin Skywalker (Hologram)
We opened up five pouches and only came up with one duplicate: Ahsoka Tano. It’s a shame we didn’t land a Wicket, as it’ll take the patience of a Jedi Master to find one. Still, these are cute, fun, and quite literally a handful.
Wave 2, due in stores soon features a darker side to Micro Force:
-Obi-Wan Kenobi (Episode 3)
-TIE Fighter Pilot
