The website Rebelscum is reporting a rumor that Hasbro is working with Gentle Giant to create a line of highly detailed, super articulated line of 6″ action figures based on Star Wars. Hasbro and Gentle Giant already work together on the the Marvel Legends line, but every time Hasbro has been asked in the past about the possibility of a 6″ Star Wars line they’ve said they have no plans.

According to our spies, Gentle Giant and Hasbro are collaborating in the development of a super-articulated, highly detailed 6-inch Star Wars line. Since the two companies already work together on Hasbro’s Marvel Legends line, partnering up for a 6-inch Star Wars line isn’t inconceivable.

There’s no doubt that if Hasbro decided to change their minds and go ahead with a “Star Wars Legends” line, they would make a lot of collectors very happy.
