When I look back at the third phase of The Black Series 6″ line through the recent reveals at NYCC, there is a diverse assortment of about six figures that really stand out to me. Lando Calrissian and the Imperial Royal Guard from wave 11 are definitely two of Hasbro’s best efforts. But then when I jog my memory further back in history, I remember the excitement of waiting to acquire the First Order Stormtrooper and Captain Phasma from wave 1 and wave 2 respectively. (That was of course before I saw Episode VII.) And then what a joy it was actually attending the HASCON convention and get the exclusive Clone Captain Rex. It’s going to be so exciting to see his “photo realistic” face deco in person. And the NYCC-revealed Rey (Island Journey) was a nice surprise too. She’s a nice-looking figure that’s also coming with “photo realistic” technology. You can truly see how far they’ve come in this format. These are not fourth rate action figures. No, they ride the crest of the wave of action figure superiority as far as we’re concerned. I wouldn’t mind seeing them again before the end of the year in fact. Let us know what figures stand out for you too!
