I received a few pre-orders today from my local etailer of choice here in Germany. And I found something interesting on the bottom of the typical Black Series box. A label applied by the etailer. It’s nothing mandated by law (if you wonder), if you buy a TBS or TVC figure in a store it is, technically speaking, for kids 4 and older. However, the specialty etailer felt they needed to add a warning label to the box saying that the figures are NOT toys and are NOT meant for children and that they for the adult figure collector. The collecting community has talked about the mythological kids who play with TVC and TBS for a long time now. The consensus seems to be that both action figure lines are mostly for the adult collector and it seems at least this German etailer absolutely agrees. Which certainly explains why Hasbro needs other toylines to reach and engage kids. Have you found similar labels by etailers on any of your boxes/cardbacks?
