After focusing on the younger age groups for the past few years, it looks like Star Wars is planing something for the collectors with their new Black Series. Unlike the normal open market figures, this series will be offered in a large scale (6 inches).
Most of the people who got to go to the show and have blogged about it, all have said that these toys have a striking likeness to their actors and of far better quality than the 3.75" scale toys.
Some of the ones that are noted as being released by Hasbro are, Luke Skywalker, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, and R2-D2, along with many more, as some of the photos have shown. The new packaging for the Black Series allows each figure to be fully displayed for those who keep their toys in the box as an investment.
The kids are also in for some new toys this year. Star Wars will be given Titan class figures, like the Marvel brand was by Hasbro. Honestly I think their quality are far from being up to par, and I think parents would be better off buying the basic toys in the line for the kids to play with. When it comes to the electronic light sabers, some really neat things are to be expected. The light saber that will be the most wanted by the kids and those who like to role play will be Anakin's new saber that will change from blue to red.
