Well..was the wait worth it? I dig the concept of this series but I am not sold on this figure. I guess I was expecting more with the simple fact it took this long to premier it. It kills me though, Hasbro has potential with this line and I know this line is aimed at collectors. The character selection gets me big time. Why Greedo and not a Cody or a Darth Vader? Man, if I could choose my top 5 figs I can assure you Greedo would not be in it. Still, fans will eat him up and with all my bellyaching, I will buy him as well. I just hope Hasbro realizes the potential that the Black series offers and get us some hard-core fan favs before this line is shelved (hoping for an ultimate Luke Jedi!).

Gentle Giant has opened pre orders for a new Snow Bunny Padme. Long time collectors should remember what transpired with the last Snow Bunny Padme. This guy had one on pre order and CANCELLED!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (Just like Vader). Don't let my mistake from the past hamper your decision today. Yeah I know she is more but damn, that is one good looking statue! Go get her today!

StarWarsFiguren.com has posted images of the new Kmart exclusive Imperial Scanning Crew set. There will be two to boot! Who said the vintage collection was dead, I know we did not say such a thing. This is an important set gang as this scanning crew member should have been in the legacy collection (as a variant). Discuss this here or in the Forums

If you thought all the Transformer preorders was going to break you well I have some bad news. Amazon just listed the highly anticipated Slave 1 and Tie Interceptor from the Vintage Collection today and well, I need another job. Slave 1 will retail for 99.99 Tie Interceptor will retail for 49.99 (ouch)
Lucasfilm Publicist Chris Argyropoulos has tweeted a couple of images of the Star Wars Black Series 6″ Figures in packaging. He also tweeted a close up of the back packaging for R2-D2. All I can say is WOW AND THANK YOU Chris for the tweet! I think fans are getting excited for this line.
