It’s our final year of Research Droids Reviews! A new year means new figures! Let’s open up The Black Series Archive line and start off with Luke Skywalker. He looks good, but he isn’t perfect.

OK, let’s get this party started! The reviews are coming soon, but you can check out crisp images of The Black Series Archives wave 1 figures right now in our RDRs. Most importantly, we have comparison pictures for each figure so you can decide which version of the figure looks better. Here is a quick rundown: Luke Skywalker is better, but not perfect. For one reason or another, the photorealistic paint job looks amateur at best, almost as if it’s a trial run. He doesn’t come with a beautiful application like recent figures. Boba Fett is much-improved. They finally updated his chest armor to the correct color. Amen, Hasbro! Bossk is almost identical to his first issue. But it’s nice to see him again. In all honesty, IG-88 is a significant step backward. He’s still feather-light, has too many holes in his head (that don’t need to be carried forward in the action figure), and got a pretty bad paint job this time around. What’s up with all of that gold? The reviews are coming soon, but check out everything else right now.

BREAKING NEWS! We now have a closer look at the pack-in figures to the Sandcrawler Playset. Both figures look minimally articulated, but I wonder if that GONK Droid is the first Build A Droid figure of this particular droid type. Imagine a future Droid Factory Lars’ Homestead GONK Droid because you know Hasbro is never going to give it to us.
