Final Thoughts

Hasbro has outdone themselves with these incredible action figures. Fans of The Vintage Collection will find plenty to enjoy in future waves especially with the inclusion of facially accurate incarnations of Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise and Han Solo in Stormtrooper Disguise. However, the real treasure comes in the form of The Black Series. The Clone Wars incarnation of Obi-Wan Kenobi is impeccable and is easily the most realistic action figure ever attempted. And, Star Wars fan favourite General Grievous looks simply breath-taking and will be the first action figure to top every collectors’ wanted list.

Hasbro has outdone themselves this time and the fans will soon reap the rewards. The future waves of both The Black Series and The Vintage Collection are in safe hands and with the promise to address the failings of the past and ensure stock actually reaches fans across the globe we all have something very special to look forward to.
Start saving your credits folks. This is going to be an expensive roller coaster ride!
