We are five years into Hasbro's The Black Series 6" line and are very happy with the quality and the constant improvements made to the figures. We've seen the photo real face printing technology being added and we've just recently seen the first figures with an improved neck, which allows for a wider range of head movement. The quality of the figures is fantastic, they look great on display and the line is a ton of fun to collect.
Currently The Black Series is a mix of characters from all Star Wars entertainment without a dedicated sub-line to place an exclusive focus on current Star Wars media. Hasbro is trying to make everybody happy across the board by covering as much ground as possible by mixing in current media into the basic Black Series assortment. By doing that however, many of the side or even main characters (in different outfits) will not get produced or take a long time to make it onto collector's shelves.
So we are asking, do we need dedicated sub-lines for CURRENT Star Wars media?
Let's take a look at what Hasbro has released and what we still would love to see from recent movies:
Hasbro is making harder to find figures from The Black Series available again (we ran a story about it a few months ago) and two of the three are scheduled to ship this month! Entertainment Earth has them up, take a look:
